With more and more recording professionals adopting a hybrid approach to their workflows, having the ability to switch seamlessly between mixing sessions in the studio has never been so important. Integrating analogue hardware into this fast-paced environment can be tricky and, more significantly, time-consuming.
In recognition of this, Neve has launched an updated version of its Recall software, which provides an interactive platform that delivers total recall of all hardware settings and enhances the capabilities of Neve-88 series hardware units and the 2254/R compressor/limiter.
This modern, sleek software programme gives producers and engineers control of up to 16 Neve analogue outboard units from a connected computer. The settings for each unit can be stored and quickly recalled, allowing users to take full advantage of every feature offered by their Neve analogue outboard gear.
Neve’s highly versatile Recall software runs on a Mac or a PC, with hardware units connected to the computer via USB or through a powered USB hub. Once they are connected, the Recall software automatically finds them and provides an interactive and easy to use software platform that makes it very simple to control, save and recall all hardware settings.
Neve units that can be controlled via Recall software include the 8801 Channel Strip, the 8803 dual EQ, the 8804 fader pack, the 8816 summing mixer and the 2254/R limiter/compressor. As well as offering unlimited recall of all switch settings, rotary pot and fader positions, Neve’s upgraded software also provides a stereo matching function for the 8803 dual EQ (a must-have feature for master bus processing), an on-screen drag-and-drop audio processing matrix for the 8801 channel strip, and a host of direct output routing options for the 8804 fader pack and 8816 summing mixer.
