AMS Neve, a console manufacturer, has created a demo room at its Lancashire HQ into a high-functioned recording studio. AMS Neve constructed the demo room with a 3.5-meter square control room, live room, vocal booth, and PMC MB3 XBDA monitors.
Originally installed in the mid-1980s, AMS Neve’s new studio was used for the Audiofile digital audio editor, where it could be demonstrated. Since then, space has used for many purposes but never as a place for full music production.
“The primary purpose of this new facility is to demonstrate our consoles and their features at any level of detail, within a top-tier studio environment,” said AMS Neve’s distribution manager David Walton. “We needed monitors that made a statement to go along with the AMS Neve equipment in the room. We have several sets of PMC monitors installed in our large showroom (and have used them during many exhibitions and demonstrations) and we are very happy with them, but the visual statement the MB3 XBD’s make in the studio is one of sheer power. Then you listen to them and you realize just how fantastic they sound with a jaw-dropping performance.”
Addition to the PMC monitors, the new demo studio of AMS Neve is equipped with a fully-loaded Neve Genesys Black G32 console and there is scope to bring in a Neve BCM10/2 Mk2 console if customers want to demo it in a real music production space and experience high-quality sounds. And to add more, there are also several AMS Neve 500-series modules and a 33609N stereo limiter/compressor, plus any number of Neve outboard units can be installed and patched into the console as needed. A full range of analog and digital I/O is also available and the room is fully networked.
