From the pioneer of recording consoles comes the 5060 Centerpiece: the Class-A analog heart of your 21st-century studio. Sized for your desktop, the 5060 delivers the tonality and center section features of Rupert Neve Design's flagship 5088 console at your fingertips, cementing outboard together with serious custom transformers, flexible monitoring, DAW transport controls, and the raw power of a Rupert Neve-designed 242 mix-buss.

With a modular, hybrid analog/digital mix system built around the 5060, you can outfit your studio with exactly what you need - and nothing that you don't. Utilizing modern DAW control technologies, the 5060 seamlessly integrates stem outputs from the DAW with the rest of your control room, sums the final mix, and provides 2-track outputs, source selection, and up to three speaker feed outputs from the monitor section.

Used in conjunction with Rupert Neve Designs' other summing products and outboard equipment, the 5060 Centerpiece forms the core of a scalable analog system. In this arrangement, additional summing mixers provide expandable channel counts and aux routing capabilities, Portico and Shelford modules provide preamplification, EQ, and dynamics, and the Centerpiece unites it all. The 5060 brings your dreams of a seamless hybrid workflow to reality.

Features

New Class-A Topologies
The new +/- 24V class-A topologies in the 5060 are the key to a more detailed, sweeter and spacious mix buss. With zero crossover distortion and unmatched purity, the 5060 delivers the sound of the 5088 to your desktop. To get more dynamic harmonic content out of the mix buss, you can push the levels on the input channels into the mix buss to find the "sweet spot".

Custom Transformers
Beyond providing ground-loop free interfacing, Rupert's custom transformers in the 5060 are responsible for its larger than life sound. To accentuate the classic tone from the output transformers, you can use the Silk / Texture controls to dial in the desired amount of "colour" depending on what each mix needs.

Stereo Input Channels 1-8
A professional grade 100mm fader determines the level of stereo input channels 1-8, with up to +10dB of additional line gain. Channels 1-8 can be either stereo or center-panned mono, and have both mute switches and inserts. The insert send of channels 1-2, and 3-4 has optional talkback assignment for use when feeding channels 1-8 through the 5060 to multichannel cue systems. The insert sends on channels 1-8 may also be used as a pre-fader send to a multi-track recorder.

Stereo Inputs Channels 9-24
Eight active stereo inputs with rotary faders for stem and aux inputs.

Stereo Buss Master
A 100mm stereo fader provides level control for the master stereo buss, outputting to both the stereo buss monitor signal and the stereo master output. For adding compression and EQ to the mix buss, there is also a transformer-coupled insert engaged by the Insert switch.

Texture & Silk Red / Blue
Every mix demands its own treatment. Continuously variable Texture controls with Silk Red and Silk Blue modes allow the engineer to fine-tune the harmonic ratio and tonality of the 5060's outputs - or to leave each mix pristine and uncolored. The Silk Red mode accentuates the transformer saturation in the highs and high-mid frequencies to add a "sparkle" to the mix, while Silk Blue accentuates the saturation of the lows and low-mid frequencies to add thickness and density - especially useful for dry, somewhat anemic mixes. Unlike EQ, these Silk & Texture controls saturate the output transformers, and add musical harmonics to the source material according to the amount of Texture applied.

Drive the mix buss hard and crank the Texture knob for a rich, saturated, vintage vibe or disengage Silk entirely for clear, wide-open sonic beauty.

Talkback
The included talkback mic is activated by depressing the Talkback switch. The Talkback has level control, a direct out, and assignment to insert sends 1-2 & 3-4. When the talkback switch is depressed, the speaker output levels are lowered according to the setting of the Dim control. A talkback remote may also be plugged into the 1/4" talkback remote input on the back of the 5060.

Transport Controls
Standard transport functions in DAWs including play, stop, record, fast-forward, rewind, loop, shuttle / jog and marker drop are controlled through MIDI or USB interconnection.

Monitor Source Selection
Selects the monitor source from between the stereo buss and three external monitor inputs.

Monitor Select
Selects which speaker output is active. By holding the Mon 3 button, the Mon 3 outs will "latch" on, allowing both Mon 1 & 2 for use with subwoofers or speakers in the cutting room.

Headphone Amplifier
A class-A reference-grade headphone amplifier with headphone level control. The headphone signal follows the selection of the monitor select.

Monitor Level
A precision 21-step attenuator provides highly accurate left/right stereo tracking, perfect repeatability, and determines the level of the monitor output.

Meters
VU meters display the RMS signal level of the selected monitor source, and the peak indicator illuminates red when the peak threshold has been exceeded.

Dim
Engaged when either the Dim or Talkback switch is depressed, Dim reduces the monitor volume between -6dB and -30dB.

Connections
Mix Inputs 1-24: 2 x DB-25
Mix Channel Inserts Send/Return 1-8: 1 x DB-25
Mix Send to External Monitor:
Monitor Outputs (Mon 3 latching): 6 x XLR

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
