The Rupert Neve Designs 5059 Satellite Summing Mixer combines absolute practicality with the indisputable sweetness and warmth that Rupert's components have blessed so many hit albums with over the years. His exclusive transformers and class-A topologies are considered prized possessions in any studio, but the 5059 benefits from these designs being perfected over time, not only adding to its sound purity, but also eliminating cross-over distortion.
The 5059 Summing Mixer features 16 channels with individual level, pan, inserts, stereo-2 sends, and master texture controls, providing easy integration with outboard equipment, complete control for two separate stem mixes, and the ability to dial in two modes of analogue.
Clean or Colored Textures
Every mix demands its own treatment; continuously variable Texture controls with Silk and Silk+ modes allow the engineer to fine tune the harmonic ratio and tonality of each stereo send of the 5059, or to leave each mix as-is, nice and clean, with no milk or sugar. The Silk mode accentuates the transformer saturation in the high frequencies to add a “sparkle” to tracks. The Silk + mode accentuates the saturation of the low frequencies to add thickness and density to any source, adding "body" to lifeless mixes. Unlike EQ, the texture control saturates the output transformers, and adds musical harmonics to the source material according to the amount of texture applied.
Not just a "Black box"
Many single-path summing solutions are a "take what you get" situation, which can be nice with fine analog components, but different music and different recordings don't always call for the same solution. Not only does the 5059 give you more control of the summing, but it allows you to integrate with other analog equipment to achieve the unique nature your music deserves. Channel inserts streamline interconnections and allow for more expansion. Analog purity is no longer defined by the path ou're given, but now you can create a path of your own combining the fine components and treatment you choose. By connecting a second 5059 to the insert outputs of a 5059, the dual stereo outputs can be used as a way to add 4 auxes to each of the 16 channels and your flexibility is now multiplied even more.
Split Stems or Final Sums
Aside from providing aux functionality with a second 5059 module, the dual stereo outputs of the 5059 are generally used for creating stem mixes. These stem mixes can be enhanced using the Silk / Texture controls on the 5059, then processed by buss compressors or other devices, and fed into inputs of another mixer or an ADC.
