June 2001—Amek's (www.amek.com) new Galileo 360V multiformat console offers comprehensive mixing/monitoring facilities for surround formats up to eight channels wide, with a high degree of connectivity and control. Galileo 360V features a microphone amplifier designed by Mr. Rupert Neve, plus the proven musicality of the Amek 4-band fully parametric equalizer.

April 2000—With few mid-priced analog mixers on the market, Amek's new Media 51 audio recording and production console is targeted right. Priced at less than $42,000 for a 28-input frame, Media 51 is a multiformat (5.1, 7.1, LCRS and stereo) console featuring SMPTE-based Supertrue automation, Virtual Dynamics on every channel, Cue List event triggering, two groups of six buses (configurable as two multiformat stems), and mic preamp and EQ sections designed by Rupert Neve. Also available is a 44-input frame and an optional panel (replacing four input modules) providing two panning joysticks and PEC/Direct switching for film sound applications. The first Media 51 production units will show at NAB; deliveries begin next month.

November 1999—An upgraded version of the company's established Digital Mixing System, Amek's DMS Plus console offers up to 96 mix inputs, expanded EQ on all channels and the ability to handle multichannel formats. A DMS-XP Booster System upgrades current DMS consoles to the new system, while Version 3.0 software enhances dynamics processing and expands surround capabilities. In addition to 24-bit I/O and improved A/D and D/A converters, DMS Plus accommodates third-party controllers, including the Akai DD1500, AMS AudioFile and DAR Soundstation. The Channel Panel full-function assignment panel provides 48 rotary encoder pots and 32 switches for optional control of all channel parameters.
