This blog seems to be all about consoles, consoles, consoles, but that’s because I love mixing consoles and I think about them all the time. They are the central focus of any recording studio and are it’s defining object, and frankly there’s not enough websites about them out there anyway

Today on the bay you can buy what I consider to be the ultimate console ever made, for me anyway. It’s a Neve 8048 with 32 1064 mic/eq modules, which are the same as 1073s but with a slightly different eq. Actually there’s a great post here on gearslutz in which Neve guru Geoff Tanner explains the differences between the various 10xx modules. This console is in CT USA, the seller vintagetones wants $147000 / £98000. That’s £2500 per module plus £18k for the rest. Value
