Rupert Neve Designs 5057 Orbit 16x2 Summing Mixer

Simple, yet transformative, the Rupert Neve Designs 5057 Orbit summing mixer delivers warm saturation and subtle glue for more cohesive, musical mixes.

Firmly rooted in six decades of console design experience, the 5057 Orbit gives your mixes the legendary tonality, power, and wide-open soundstage that only Rupert Neve's class-A analog summing can provide. Coupled with Rupert's famous custom audio transformers and Silk Red & Blue circuitry for variable, harmonic saturation, the Orbit launches sterile in-the-box mixes to new heights of tone, depth and clarity -- without compromising the recallable convenience and repeatability of your DAW-based workflow.

No room for a console? See how the 5057 Orbit packs 16 channels of Neve summing into one rack space:

Born to Drive

When you push a mix buss and output transformers towards saturation, the non-linear, musical harmonics that occur are what truly glue a recording together and bring it to life. Rather than using an external summing solution that offers little more than an ultra-clean representation of the in-the-box experience, the Orbit provides the extraordinary richness, harmonic complexity and depth that only a Rupert Neve console can bring to your mixes.

The Orbit utilizes a highly custom output transformer configuration originally developed for the acclaimed Shelford Channel, which provides both a Main Output and a -6dB Output -- the latter of which enables you to fully drive the Orbit to achieve more transformer harmonics without clipping the next device in the chain. This unique transformer drive is a hallmark of the sound of Rupert Neve throughout the years -- and read more the sound of countless classic hit records.
