Sonic Distribution LLC, the exclusive distributor for Rupert Neve Designs products in the UK and Ireland, has purchased the world's first 5088 mixing console. The console, which bears serial number 1, will be installed in Sonic Distribution's new facility located at Canalot Studios in West London.

"The desk will be the centerpiece of our new demonstration studio and training facility," says James Young, managing director of Sonic Distribution. "We are firm believers in letting our customers try equipment on a project before purchasing, and look forward to providing them with the opportunity to work on the latest and greatest analog mixing desk from Mr. Rupert Neve. The sound quality and performance of Mr. Neve's audio designs are legendary, and we expect the 5088 to become a modern classic."

"Owners can custom configure the 5088 to include whatever combination of Rupert Neve Designs Portico mic preamp, EQ and dynamics processing modules works best for them," adds Mitch Carey, Sonic Distribution's communications director. "As the studio grows, or if the focus of its work changes, the 5088 can be easily expanded or reconfigured accordingly."

Mr. Rupert Neve was recently a guest of honor at the grand opening of Sonic Distribution's demonstration studio, along with some of the biggest names in pro audio, including producer, engineer and mixer Bob Clearmountain and the head of sE Electronics, Siwei Zou. The occasion also marked the start of Sonic Distribution's sixth year in business.
