NAMM 2015: New Neve-Style 500 Series Gear from Heritage Audio
Heritage Audio has earned its reputation making some of the best vintage Neve-style gear available and, at this year’s NAMM, it is clear the company’s eyes are focused on the ever-growing 500-Series market. First out is the 2264JR, a 2-slot 500-Series compressor and preamp. The compressor uses the same schematics and key components as the company’s standard 2264E rack compressor, based on the classic Neve compressor. When you don’t need to use the compressor, it functions as a 1073 mic preamp. It should be noted that you cannot use the mic preamp and compressor simultaneously.
500-Series users know that your chassis and power supply can make or break your 500-Series module’s performance, and if your mic pre, compressor, or EQ are underpowered, their headroom is lowered and they will not perform to the best of their abilities. Heritage has announced three 500-Series enclosures to assure this will not be a problem. Each features the company’s “On Slot Technology,” which handles power supply on a per-slot basis. Each slot has an independent power supply linear regulation stage, and is isolated from the rest. The OST-4 is a bare-bones, four-slot unit, while the OST-10 can accommodate 10 modules. The MCM-8 ups the ante quite a bit, and features an integrated mixer, with each of its eight modules sporting classic Neve-style knobs for controlling your mix levels and panning. It even provides stereo analog VU meters for your two-track mix, and a stereo master fader.
