AMS Neve


AMS Neve

AMS Neve Ltd was the result of the amalgamation in 1992 of AMS (Advanced Music Systems) with Neve Electronics International, also known simply as Neve for historical reasons, a legendary British mixing console manufacturer that originated in the work of Rupert Neve in the 1960s. Neve analogue consoles have been considered to be of such high quality that many of twenty or thirty years of age are still in use today at recording studios around the world—even as digital audio has taken over many aspects of recording technology. Studios with Neve equipment are often sought out by musicians. Models such as the '1073' preamp are still among the most popular and expensive in the recording world. The company does produce digital consoles today alongside analogue systems.

Neve was the first company to develop computer-controlled moving fader automation, NECAM, in the mid 1970s.

Rupert Neve sold the company in 1973 to the Bonochord Group of companies, leaving the company in 1975. He then went on to pursue other projects including creating the Focusrite company in 1985, which he later sold to Phil Dudderidge, one of the founders of Soundcraft. Rupert Neve was also involved in the design of the Amek 9098i a large-format analog console, digitally controlled analog preamps and EQs built by Summit Audio and a preamp for Taylor Acoustic guitars.

As such AMS Neve is one of many companies that can lay claim to using technology designed by or licensed by Rupert Neve.
