From Producer and MPG Awards Managing Director Tony Platt:
“Most producers and engineers, both old and new, will have forged a ‘special relationship’ with some incarnation of a Rupert Neve console, channel, compressor etc. at some point in their careers, and so the MPG were delighted to present the Special Recognition Award 2017 to him. The mark of the best audio production tools is their ability to inspire creativity as well as delivering the highest quality and indeed Rupert continues to design tools that do exactly that – and what’s more he does it with flair and style.”
