NK Sound Tokyo equipped with world’s largest 5088


NK Sound Tokyo, owned and operated by Neeraj Khajanchi, has upgraded its main studio with the addition of an 80-input Rupert Neve Designs 5088 console, making it the largest 5088 to date. The mammoth console, supplied by distributor Hook-Up Inc, came loaded with 48 channels of Shelford 5052 mic preamp and Inductor EQ modules.

‘Originally, we had a 48-channel SSL E Series,’ revealed Khajanchi. ‘When we revamped the studio in 2019, I had been trying Rupert Neve Designs’ Portico 5024 four-channel preamps, then purchased two Shelford channels. Overall the stability, sound quality, ease-of-use and customisability of the 5088 are amazing.’

The studio also has a large XLR patchbay for its huge collection of outboard gear and, for Khajanchi, keeping all of the studio’s XLR to XLR connections was important.

‘The 5088 is just super clean,’ Khajanchi added. ‘I get out of it what I put into it, which is great. Having all that headroom really helps give me the beautiful reverb tails and super clean sustain on all my instruments. But when I do need some character, I go straight for the SILK switch and add colour to my tracks that way.’
