Looks like 2021 isn't about to be in 2020's shadow when it comes to taking away our icons. Just saw this news:

Edit: Trying to change the smiley icon for this post or remove it, as it isn't appropriate, but the software won't seem to let me.

Rest in Peace Rupert, all of us have heard the results of your amazing designs. Thanks for being such an important part of the sound of modern recording, brilliant stuff!

What a gentleman. Did a seminar with him once in Miami, and he was very generous with his knowledge. His passion for what he did was obvious, and infectious.

He was a brilliant man, and so generous. He three times built a company from scratch so that more people could access his sound. At each he trained the ENG staff so that they could think like he did about audio. AMS-Neve still has people he trained. He probably has more to do with what we think of as good recorded sound than any other person. HIs gear defined more than one era of what one would aspire to own. I wanted his latest work, and have 12 preamps and two channel strips from Rupert Neve Designs. They have been a joy to use. I have aspired to a 5088 for over a decade. His is the stuff of audio production dreams.

Fortunately he spent the last 25 years passing on his knowledge to his successors. RIP Rupert, thank you for giving us the tools to enjoy music at its finest. Your products were a huge step in quality when they were introduced in the 1960s.
