Neotek console

1986 Neotek 20-channel console

our Neotek is a custom-made Series II, dated to early March 1986 (making her a Pisces, just like Elio & Patrick). we don't know too much about her first twenty-odd years, except she spent some time in the film department at UCLA, and that she's outfitted with a very strange, joystick-equipped quad-bussing system that we still haven't quite figured out how to operate. what we do know is that she's got incredibly clean, transparent mic preamps, and quite possibly the finest fully-parametric console EQ ever designed. the architecture & signal flow is unique & endlessly flexible, and makes for simple & intuitive overdubs, mults, and even the oddest or most complicated bussing & routing. exclusively wired with Mogami cabling.
