CUSTOM SERIES 75 CONSOLE (POWERED BY NEVE) MANUAL

 

Proud to have been involved in the creation of the Custom Series 75 console.

The console recreates the old Neve 1073 and 1081 mic pre/EQ using modern topology (relays and IC's), and the recently released 2254R compressor (also a recreation of the old 1969 Neve 2254) is across the mix bus. Classic and modern summing on two mix busses is the key here. Amazing sounding piece of kit.

I authored the manual which can be found here;

Dissertation - From Imitation to Innovation: Developing a Personal Style in Music

This study explores the development of the author’s musical identity by reflecting on the creative processes inherent in the making of an album of original music. A case study explores both tangible and intangible practices for developing a strong musical identity by imitating antecedents on the guitar. Practice, composition and production processes are documented through video, audio and written recordings. Self-reflection, together with an examination of the relevant literature assists in preparing the fundamentals for semi-structured interviews with three research participants. The ensuing discussion reveals ways in which a strong musical identity can be developed by transforming pre-existing musical ideas into new works using theoretical approaches, the recordings of our pre-cursors and other intangible practices. Finally, these discoveries are compared and contrasted, then presented as integrated approaches to developing a personal music style.
