Neve summing for computer-based producers in a 16 channel format
The Neve 8816 is a summing mixer from legendary manufacturers Neve, bringing the stunning summing sound of Neve to computer based producers and smaller format studios.
The Neve 8816 uses the same transformer mixing circuitry as 80-series consoles. Using custom transformers by Carnhill on the stereo bus and mastering-grade stereo width controls makes the 8816 a powerful summing unit capable of adding a real authentic analogue summing to any setup.
Hand built in the United Kingdom, the Neve 8816 summing mixer has a total of 16 inputs, each with level, pan, gain, cue and cur and solo controls. There are two sets of speakers, four monitor sources, independent monitor level controls, a talkback mic, headphone outputs and cue sends. There is also a digital output option for the 8816 fader pack, and more than one Neve 8816 can be hooked up using a 2 track bus. The result of these features is a summing mixer capable of producing the stunningly open and punchy mixes that Neve consoles have built a name on.
A true Neve summing mixer, the Neve 8816 has +15db gain on each channel, and the post-insert mix function facilitates mixing in separate stems of mixing a stem with effects. Settings are also saveable within a Mac or PC via the USB port on the back, making the Neve 8816 an incredibly versatile capable of taking a writing room, project studio or home recording setup to the next level, bringing stunning Neve analogue summing to otherwise sterile digital mixes.
