Finding a vintage digital AMS rack unit in top operating condition is becoming ever-harder; ‘cheap’ examples can be found online, but they can require a great deal of tech time, and sometimes fixes are simply not possible. It’s taken some time for the owner to find the right person to bring this to top operating condition, but was well-worth the effort and grey hairs because the sound is truly superb. When released, these were the cutting edge of digital technology; AMS designed and built these with great care and attention to detail and they swiftly became ubiquitous in studios worldwide. The RMX-16 can be heard on thousands of recordings from the 80s to now, and was certainly one of the core studio staples that defined the musical soundscape of the 80s. Today RMX-16s can still be found in regular use in top studios worldwide and their sound is still so coveted that Universal Audio have now collaborated with AMS to produce the UAD plug-in version.
Currently set to 240v operation. Running OS 3.2
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING: These units can be tricky to ship and we would prefer collection or delivery in person. If shipping by courier, we will pack with exceptional care – as always – however the buyer must be prepared for the possibility of having a technician re-seat cards or perform other tweaks on arrival. If you are in the UK then collection in person is an option, or we may wish to deliver by our independent courier who is experienced at handling delicate equipment. Please get in touch to discuss before buying if you are more than 30 miles from the M1/M25, or outside the UK.
