Whoa, this is a damned interesting article (I thought). Apparently, the Texas grid collapsed BEFORE the wind turbines froze! Don't be deterred by the title, the guy makes several good points, and renewable energy really does need SOME kind of backup, storage, whatever (I like "hydroelectric capacitors," where they pump water UP into a lake, which supplies electricity on demand).

Remember, it was the Green energy solutions( wind farm/solar ) that is the cause of this Trouble, not a failure of Fossil Fuel/Nook-you-lur Generating Plants to take up the optional winterization work.cheers,Douglas

Rubbish, of course you’re waffling… everybody waffles, it passes the time when there’s no music playing ;-P
I have the utmost appreciation of Ruperts historical contributions and likewise was his most pleasant demeanor, which in this industry is a rare trait indeed !Many wax lyrical as to the tone of the his 8068 console but as much as an antediluvian dilettante as I may be, I actually preferred the 5088, likewise the API 3288.
One of my earliest Neve acquisitions was a pair of 32254e’s, some time later Focusrite ISA110’s.. they were and remain sublime sounding preamp/eq's, so too a pair of his RNR1’s are especially favourite microphones of mine, and whilst I do have a soft spot for ribbon transducers, the RNR’s freq. response exceeds that of most others of the ilk, whilst still retaining that uniquely pleasing ribbon mic. character, their smoothly extended range makes them pieces which I can always find an application for.

nah, not waffling … just describing Rupert Neve’s contribution to the sound of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. as he did not build tape recorders, microphones or studio monitors, he could not introduce tape saturation, proximity effects or thermal compression to the sound. but transformer saturation, tantalum distortion, germanium non-linearity … he could.
