Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, along with AMS Neve, has announced a new EQ option, 88R-style four-band EQ, for the Neve Genesys, a custom-crafted, expandable digitally controlled analog recording console that incorporates digital workstation control. This new EQ option is an alternative to the classic 1084 EQ option currently available. Exclusively distributed in the U.S. by GC Pro, the Genesys was designed to address the new realities of the modern professional audio industry for music and postproduction, while building on Neve's 50 years of accumulated technical heritage.

While often imitated, there's only one true Neve console. To celebrate the console's popularity and the new EQ option, GC Pro is offering a very special price on a fixed configuration of Genesys console: $75,000 for a limited time, until the end of March 2013, that's over a 25% discount."
