Precision Fader Control for the 8816 Summing Mixer
The overwhelming reception for 8816 Summing Mixer gave rise to one regular question: ‘can I add faders?’ The answer is the Neve 8804 Fader Pack, the perfect companion to the 8816.
Veteran engineers will appreciate the feel of the faders under their hands as they ride levels and make sensitive adjustments to the mix. Connection to the 8816 is straightforward analogue audio, and the sound is pristine. The 8804 not only adds fader control to the 8816, it provides expanded functionality. Each 8804 channel fader has a direct output, and these can be set to pre- or post-fader. These direct outputs can then be used to feed effects units, to make separate recordings of individual elements of a mix, or for multi-track recording of signals from the 8816.
The channel level pot on the 8816 becomes a dedicated auxiliary send for an outboard reverb unit, letting users add that extra touch of class to the mix. The 8804 is equipped with our proprietary Recall utility program for flexible use alongside a computer-based system. Recall enables your Mac or PC to store and recall all of the 8804’s settings, boosting your productivity. Put simply, this is Neve engineering at its best.
