The Focusrite brand has an outstanding pedigree in the audio world and was formed in 1985 by Rupert Neve when George Martin asked for a microphone preamp that could be retro-fitted into the Neve desk at Air Montserrat. The result was the ISA 110. This design was also used in the Focusrite Forte mixing console, a desk that was so expensive to build that only two were made and the company became bankrupt. However, the company was resurrected in 1989 and this year, Focusrite launched the ISA One, featuring the original preamp designed by Rupert Neve over 20 years ago.
