Sony Music Studios New York recently installed an 84-channel Neve 88R analog console in its Studio B. It will be used for surround mixing on Super Audio CD, music recording and feature film mixing. In addition, an archive of existing material will be remixed from its current analog form to Super Audio CD on the 88R.

"The 88R has been optimized for surround from its initial design phase," said David Smith, VP of engineering at Sony Music. "It has a great versatility of operation in surround, with subgroup capability, stem management, surround panning, routing and monitoring capabilities. We've always had great experiences with our VR console, and this is a sonically improved VR. I'm confident of its future success at Sony Music Studios."

AMS Neve Eastern regional sales manager Gerard Fiocca said this about the effect the 88R will have on East Coast feature film and music mixing: "The 88R has already been very positively received in the U.S. market, where it has proven its sophistication and sonic brilliance at premiere studios like Conway Recording and The Village. With the 88R now headed for Sony Music Studios, our A-list clientele will continue to grow, not only on the East Coast, but worldwide. This console joins our roster of fully booked 88Rs already mixing at PLUS XXX Studios in Paris, Sony Music Entertainment in Tokyo, Sphere Studios in London and Studios 301 in Sydney."

Air Studios in London and Chalice Studios in Los Angeles have also recently selected the Neve 88R.
