Neve® 88M Dual Mic Preamp USB interface
Posted on: Wednesday 15th of June 2022
Neve has launched the 88M, their first Dual Mic Preamp and USB Audio Interface, at the NAMM show 2022. Using the same transformer-balanced technology as Neve’s flagship large-format 88RS, the Burnley-based AMS Neve says the 88M “brings the legendary sound of AIR, Abbey Road and Capitol Studios into your home and portable studio setup”.
Chief Analogue Designer Robin Porter says, “During the development of the 88R, the significance of a precise and clinical preamp was not understated. We knew how important this was to engineers; to reduce the amount of time spent with external preamps. Audio engineers at scoring stages across the world immediately fell in love with the console and its preamps. We’ve developed the 88M as a faithful reproduction of the 88R preamp. It houses the same characteristics, enabling home studios and upcoming engineers to experience the clear and pristine sound quality found in the 88R”.
Housed in a robust shell, the USB-powered 88M has been designed with project studios, home studios and artists recording on location in mind. The company says superior analogue and digital components are utilised at every stage, ensuring supreme quality throughout the entire signal path.
