Rupert Neve Designs has announced two new products: the R10 Ten Space 500-Series Rack, and the SwiftMix™ MC5 Master Control module for the company's 5088 consoles outfitted with SwiftMix moving fader automation. Here's the details in their own words...
Building on the success of the R6 Six Space Rack introduced in 2015, the R10 is a 500-Series rack made for serious sound. With more than 150% the required current, ultra-rugged build quality and a full complement of XLR and TRS I/O, the R10 provides the power and stability your best modules require to realize their fullest potential.
At its introduction in 2014, Rupert Neve Designs' proprietary SwiftMix automation system brought high-quality VCA-less moving fader automation to the company's flagship 5088 console. Now, the release of the SwiftMix MC5 Master Control module brings advanced transport, editing, and grouping functionality with all of the most popular DAWs to the engineer's fingertips. Providing seamless control from the mix position, the MC5 allows for easy auditioning, decisive editing, and quick recall.
According to General Manager Josh Thomas, "The addition of the MC5 Master Controller will add powerful capabilities to the 5088 console, providing the user with a control set familiar to the ProTools user, and allowing for a streamlined workflow through a truly world class signal path."
