Four independent & genuine 1081 Mic/Pre or Line input channels.
The Neve 4081 is four mic preamps based on the legendary 1081 preamp built into a single powerful unit.
Building on the famous and highly sought after 1081 pre amp, the Neve 4081 is a quad mic pre capable of delivering the stunning preamp sound of the original units, with a huge amount of added control. Most popular on vocal and spoken word recordings, the Neve 4081 is the preamp in choice in a range of post, studio and live recording environments. Here at Miloco we have a 4081 in the racks at Westpoint Studios, and we think it's a fantastic way to get four channels of that famous Neve preamp sound in a single unit.
All of the functions on the Neve 4081 are controllable from either the front panel of the unit, or through Neve's remote control software on a PC or Mac. Bringing the 1081 sound into the modern recording environment, this level of remote digital control provides ab efficient solution for users looking to control the preamp functions through their DAW. Many Neve 4081s can be linked together, meaning that you could have up to 64 independent channels of Neve mic pres all controlled from just one computer; a truly incredible concept for modern production and recording techniques.
Also available on the Neve 4081 is a digital option, providing four channels of AD conversion on either firewire or AES. Insert points before the conversion mean external outboard can be plugged into the signal path before the conversion stage. Another optional accessory is the 19" rack kit, meaning up to two 4081s can be mounted in a 19" rack.
