AMS Neve 2264A Classic Mono Limiter/Comp Module (Rack Needed)

The Neve 2264A is a mono limiter/compressor module for use in Neve racks. The 2264A retains the original 2264A’s unique sonic characteristics by using the same architecture, matching components and original hand-wound transformers ­as its historic counterpart, but it is also available in both vertical and horizontal orientations.

Being electrically and mechanically the same D.L.1 format as the Neve 1073 and 1084 Mic/Pre modules, the 2264A can be inserted into any compliant console or rack that houses the 1073 or 1084 module types.

Originally designed in 1974, the Neve 2264A mono Limiter/Compressor unit quickly became a legend. Delivering similar facilities and performance as the earlier 2254 Limiter/Compressor type, it did so despite being packaged in a more compact form-factor. Discreet, Class A/B design and transformer-coupled circuits ­used in the input, innovative bridge-driver design, side-chain and output stages ensured a totally unique sound. The original 2264A units are still sought after, decades after production stopped, and they remain one of the milestone pieces of studio equipment.

Neve 2264A Features

  • Classic mono Limiter/Compressor
  • Available in Vertical and Horizontal orientations
  • Transformer-coupled circuits used in Input, Bridge-driver, Side-chain and Output stages
  • Independent Limiter and Compressor IN/OUT selectors
  • BYPASS switch connects input terminals directly to output terminals
  • Multiple units can be linked together to provide multi-unit side-chain control from a single unit
  • Analogue meter with approximate PPM ballistics indicates 0dB to 20dB of gain reduction
  • Crafted in England by Neve engineers
