AMS Neve Reissues Famous '80s Reverb Unit, the RMX16 | NAMM 2020

One of the earliest and most popular digital reverb processors of the '80s is getting a fresh reissue.

AMS Neve

The AMS Neve RMX16 is a new version of AMS' original RMX16. That rackmounted reverb unit—containing the huge "In the Air Tonight"–style "NonLin" reverb among others—found its way on hits from Peter Gabriel to Kate Bush to Public Image Limited.

The new AMS Neve RMX16, instead of being housed in a traditional rack-sized chassis, is now a smaller 500 Series module. It does, however, make an effort to be as close a replica as possible to the original's circuitry.

"The sound once available only to premier studios is now on tap for a much wider user base. In addition to the 9 standard programs, there are 9 aftermarket programs available to RMX16 users via the unique and now elusive remote control," AMS Neve writes. "These 9 extra programs are included in the AMS RMX 16 500 Series Digital Reverb Module."

Other features include:

  • An 18kHz bandwidth, allowing it to also be used as a high quality digital delay line.
  • 90dB dynamic range and 0.03% distortion in delay mode.
  • Adjustable input and output levels for optimum signal to noise performance.
  • Low power consumption (and therefore cool running).
  • Independent control of each program’s fundamental reverberant parameters.
  • Nudge Buttons to increment or decrement data for all selectable reverberation functions.
  • Alphanumeric program descriptions for ease of use when storing or recalling information for the unit’s memory.
  • New rotary push encoder enabling all parameters and settings to be adjusted by ear.
  • New wet/dry mix blend function.
  • New save/recall feature with 100 user-defined memory slots.

The AMS Neve RMX16 will retail for £995.00. Click the "Follow" button above to add it your Reverb Feed and be notified as soon as it's available for purchase.
