Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5015-H - Horizontal

Shop Brand : Rupert Neve Designs
Shop All: Channel Strips

  • With independent transformer-coupled mic preamp and compressor-limiter sections identical to those found in the 5012 and 5043 modules, the fully analogue Portico 5015 combines the outstanding sound quality expected from a Rupert Neve design with the total flexibility required by modern recording studios. Available in both vertical and horizontal configurations, when used with the 5033 five-band EQ it is possible to create a Portico channel strip with preamplification, dynamics processing and equalization. As an additional routing option, the mic pre output may be routed directly to the compressor section without patching by pressing the To Comp switch.

    Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5015-H Features:

    • Silk
      Much could be written about this feature, suffice to say, that it gives a subtle option to enhance sound quality in the direction of vintage modules. The Silk button reduces negative feedback and adjusts the frequency spectrum to provide a very sweet and musical performance. We suggest you try it and make your own judgment.
    • Level Meter
      -30 dBu to +22 dBu
      With reference to the output
    • Mute
      Cuts of the output signal post metering. Be sure to mute the outputs before engaging phantom power.
    • High Pass Filter
      The High pass filter is a valuable aid in any signal chain but particularly so in a microphone
      preamplifier. Signals between 20 and 250 Hz can be attenuated, leaving the range above this
      unaffected. This gets rid of building rumble, air handling motor hum etc.
    • Phantom Power
      Provides 48V phantom power to microphones
    • Phase Inverts
      Flips the phase of an incoming source 180 degrees
      For signals below the “threshold” level that has been set, a compressor provides a linear path allowing signals to be amplified without the gain being adjusted in any way. When signals exceed the “threshold” level, the gain is reduced in a controlled manner that depends on the Ratio that has been set.
    • GAIN
      GAIN range provided is from -6dB to +20 dB. ?As already noted, when compression has taken place, it may be necessary to increase the overall gain to restore the apparent program level
    • RATIO
      Range from 1:1 to LIMIT (i.e. 40:1)
    • Threshold
      Range from -30dBu to +20dBU
      Range from 20 mS to 75 mS.
      Range of RELEASE time is 100 mS to 2.5 Seconds.
    • STEREO Operation
      When the LINK Push-Button is engaged on two channels of Portico compressors connected via the link inputs set to approximately the same values, gain reduction on both channels will be the same to preserve Stereo balance and center imaging.
      When the LINK Push-Button is engaged and the link input is connected to another Portico series compressor with LINK engaged, the signal passing through one the compressors, may be used to control the amplitude of the Portico compressor its connected to.
      A reduction LED METER is provided that show GAIN REDUCTION in the compressor.
      REDUCTION is calibrated in dB covering the range -1 to -22 dBu, reading from right to left.
