Rupert Neve Designs has announced an update to its line-up of summing products, the 5059 Satellite 16 x 2+2 Summing Mixer and 5060 Centerpiece 24 x 2 Desktop Mixer – which are now being produced in the company’s classic Shelford colour, originally debuted with thei Shelford Series and flagship 5088 console.

RND 5059 Satellite and 5060 Centerpiece‘When Mr Rupert Neve developed the original 1073, 2254, and other early designs, he lived in a small English village named Little Shelford,’ says Chris Dauray, Brand Manager for Rupert Neve Designs. ‘As initial production of these early modules began, the Royal Air Force happened to have a surplus of paint intended for their airplanes – RAF Blue Grey. This abundant and affordable airplane paint was chosen purely for cost reasons at the time, and thus a legendary colour scheme was unintentionally born.

‘Just as Rupert Neve Designs’ products preserve the sonic history of Rupert’s creations throughout the years, the Shelford faceplates are a nod to the visual style from that early era.’

The updated Satellite and Centerpiece from Rupert Neve Designs retain all the same characteristics, but with the updated Shelford colour scheme ‘to make them more referential to the classic design ideologies on which they are based’. No other changes have been made.

The updated 5059 Satellite and 5060 Centerpiece will begin shipping worldwide in February 2021, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $3,999 USD and $7,999 USD respectively.
