The Neve® 88M dual-channel Audio Interfacebrings the sound of Abbey Road, Air, and Capitol Studios into your home studio. This phenomenal front-end recording system uses the same transformer-balanced technology found in our flagship large-format 88RS console complimented with mastering-grade A/D conversion, delivering world-class fidelity and premier studio musicality throughout.

10in/10out Audio Interface

Exclusive Marinair™ transformers are used on the input and output stage to produce that classic Neve 1073 sound, line and moc inputs are transformer-balanced.

88RS console front end

Packing the classic Neve 1073 into a 500 series module was no small feat! Neve engineers ensure that all the class-A circuitry is faithfully maintained in the 1073LB

Big Neve Iron -Exclusive Marinair® Transformers

The classic 5dB stepped Elma switch delivers accurate gain levels throughout the gain range., this unique layout means there is no need for a mic/line switch, the pot itself selects the preamp and input.

Rugged, workhorse design

Three distinct gain stages provided by two independent transistor-based preamplifiers provide gain for any line input or Microphone signal.

DI circuit-superb quality instrument recording

By combining the two preamps together, the 1073 preamp can deliver up to 80dB of microphone gain, bringing out the musical drive and harmonic saturation that the 1073 is famous for.

Reference-grade conversion quality

The 180-degree phase flip feature is extremely useful in multi-microphone setups with multiple preamps, ideal for top and bottom snare micing.

ADAT I/O -Expandable digital connectivity

The 1073LB can be integrated into your studio, patched and ready to go the simply plug into the front input when needed to record quickly.

Bus/HUB powered-Ideal for recordingon the move

With settings of 1.2kΩ and 300Ω, the 1073LB impedance can be optimised for use with a wide range of modern or vintage microphones.

These preamps help us get that warmth and harmonic drive that is missing from so many modern recordings.
