You may be asking yourself, what makes the 5057 Orbit Summing Mixer so great? Let’s take a tour of the Orbit to give you some insight into how this summing mixer will make your music sound that much better and make your life a little bit easier.
Classic Sounds on Demand
The 5057 Orbit allows you to have constant control over the texture of your sound. Both the
Silk Red & Blue modes included allow you to have control over the harmonic density and the tonality of your mix.
Silk Red Mode
Accentuates transformer saturation in the high and high-mid frequencies to amplify the vibrant midrange harmonics associated with vintage equipment.
Silk Blue Mode
Accentuates the low and low-mid frequencies to add thickness and weight to any source.
In other words, the different modes will allow you to make sure that you have a balance in your mix that is gentle enough on the ears but loud enough to reach your listeners’ soul.
Expand Your Summing System
Another advantage built into the 5057 Orbit is adding multiple units to the Buss Link for a higher channel count. The Orbit is a very effective tool on its own, but it can also be used as a building block in an expandable summing system, giving users access to endless audio possibilities. Use the 5059 Satellite for flexible summing and routing and the 5060 Centerpiece for additional mixing and monitoring features, resulting in world-class analog mixes.

Channel Separation and Accuracy
Most engineers want you to hear every note and detail in their mixes, and the Orbit allows you to do just that. It provides your mixes with the widest and most accurate stereo image with the greatest depth and most direct signal path. There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to hear every detail accurately reflected in your mixes because you know how much work and dedication goes into each beat. With Rupert Neve’s 5057 Orbit on deck, every emotion you pour into your mixes will touch the hearts of listeners everywhere.
DAW Based Recall Without Compromise
Recalls can be a challenge for modern mix engineers; however, with the Orbit’s simple set up and a fixed level of accuracy, you can have the DAW-based recall from mix to mix whilst still being able to add richness, impeccable sound quality, and harmony of Rupert Neve’s Class A transformer-coupled mix buss.
5057 Orbit Physical Features
Four push-button switches that allow the user to MONO sum the first eight input channels, in pairs.
Each channel is unity gain from input to output.
Silk Red & Blue
A single illuminated LED push-button switch that toggles between the transformer saturation modes: OFF, RED, BLUE
Equipped with a 31-detent potentiometer that controls the amount of transformer saturation when one of the Silk modes are engaged.
Two LED’s sit on either side of the Trim Knob that illuminate green to indicate a signal is present (-20dBu).
Subsequently, these signals illuminate red (+24dBu) when the signal is 2dBu below the clipping point.
In classic Neve red, the Trim Knob is a 12-position rotary switch that controls the attenuation level of the Main Output and -6dB Output within a tolerance of +/- 0.1dB.
Other Features of the 5057 Orbit Summing Mixer
