AMS Neve 8424 Console

AMS Neve 8424 is a small footprint console bringing a lot to the table

It seems AMS Neve has been taking advantage of quarantine, after announcing its newest console, the 8424. Had it happened, this would also likely have been announced during the Summer NAMM show. But stealthily dropping on a regular morning serves the same purpose, and maintains excitement.


AMS Neve’s new 8424 console comes fully prepared for anything that’s thrown at it. It is equipped with a series of 24 faders, with dual inputs to seamlessly alternate record and mix modes. Users will also be able to mix up to 48 mono channels by assigning two per fader. As seen across Neve consoles of the past, VU meters sit front and center to monitor the master bus. Each channel also has a small set of lights to monitor individual signal levels as you work. The board contains 1073 preamps, well known for their classic sound. Otherwise each channel comes with four aux sends, and a pair of stereo cues as well.

Users will be able to create up to four groups with AMS Neve 8424, and assign any of these groups to a pan knob. The console is also prepared with a talkback system, two headphone amplifiers, and open slots to install any two 500 series units. This will make it super convenient for engineers to keep their favorite 500 series EQs on board without stepping away from the helm. Finally, as arguably one of the most notable features, the 8424 can also take a snapshot of all knob settings for recall later on.

AMS Neve has kept affordability well in mind when designing the 8424. Simultaneously, many advanced features were effectively packed in, while maintaining a small format. The 8424 console is available now for around $22,389 — or $26,866 for a system including VAT. For a complex console like this, that’s an incredible price, and we can’t wait to see what studios start introducing this to their environments.
