Neve Typography
« on: February 19, 2020, 04:00:46 AM »
Hi All,

I'm thinking of having some replacement neve faceplates made.  I'd like to be able to include an accurate font for the module identification numbering on the bottom right corner.   Problem is, all of mine are worn off.  It would be great if anyone could post some pics of the "new" style neve console module numbers.  An example would be the font found on a 31102 (any of 5 digit modules that start with a 3).   Once I get the font matched, I'll be happy to upload the results.  Thanks!

I cannot tell you what font was used but I can tell you that in those days the silk screen layout was made using Letraset so the font would be one of theirs.

Wow!  That's amazing you know that.  Thanks for the lead!

Check out the “Urbano Ultra” font. I believe that’s what they used.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Neve font slick - its Univers 57, got it off an old drawing  ;)
It is not the same as 4+12, nor is it the same as 4+8, but 4+12 IS the same as 4+8+12....

Nice find!

I tried the Univers family, but the shape of the "v" didn't look as close as the Urbano Ultra font. But I may not have had the 57 variant, as it wasn't listed in the Letraset catalog from the 70s I was looking at.
