The pedigree of the 5088 mixing console is unrivaled. Mr. Rupert Neve, who created his very first circuit 67 years ago at age 13, is a pioneer of analogue mixing console design, having started building custom mixers at the very beginning of the 1960s.

Over the ensuing 45 years he has produced some of the most highly prized analogue recording equipment in the business, in the process winning recognition from his peers as well as several major awards, including a Technical GRAMMY from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for his contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording field.-- The 5088 is available with channel counts in multiples of 16 (i.e. 16, 32, 48, and beyond) and, as of August 2012, in a special 8-channel format.

Expansion Chassis
To increase the number of input channels, it is possible to add 5088-16 channel expansion chassis to the standard configuration. These additional chassis share the same form factor and lock into the sides of the master 5088 frame. Multiple expansion chassis may be added depending on what is required. Internal, group, solo, aux and master busses are linked through ribbon cables.

Penthouse Frame
To increase the feature set in each channel strip, one or two penthouse frames may be adjoined to a 5088 regardless of the number of input channels.

The standard 16-channel master section penthouse has 25 slots for vertically configured Portico modules. Depending on a studios needs, any configuration of Mic Pre/EQs, Mic Pre/Compressors, Five Band EQs, Stereo Compressors, True Tape FX, and Stereo Field Editor modules can be added to the penthouse. For example, a studio doing exclusively mix work could configure a penthouse with 5-Band EQs on each input channel and then have a mixture of stereo compressors, Tape FX and Stereo Field Editors in the remaining slots since mic pres are unnecessary.

A studio that needs mic pre/compression/EQ on every input channel strip could integrate a double penthouse with mic pre/compressors and five band EQs, whereas a studio that has an existing large collection of high quality outboard equipment and doesn't need the additional functionality can forgo the additional modules and penthouses.

Buss System

Once connected through a patchbay, the bussing systems in the Portico modules can be used to enhance workflow by creating normaled connections and multiple signals.

The Meterbridge
As an option, any 5088 configuration may be outfitted with either a VU or an LED meterbridge at an additional cost. Both versions of the meterbridge feature finely calibrated and extremely precise meters for all input and group channels. The meter bridge can be secured to either the top of a standard 5088 frame or the top of a penthouse rack.

Martin Sounds Flying Faders, and Toneluxs Shadow Mix can be included in any 5088 configuration to ad moving fader automation and DAW control functionality.
