Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5015 Microphone Preamp/Compressor at a Glance
- Two great Portico components in one half-rack chassis
- Premium preamp
- Impressive compressor
- Low noise, high performance
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. 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 Compressor" switch.
The microphone preamp portion of the 5015 sports Neve's custom input and output transformer designs for a sound that's strikingly similar to that of classic Neve consoles. It's equipped with individually selectable phase, mute, phantom power, and a fully sweepable highpass filter, along with a "Silk" circuit, which enhances the sound, adding warmth and presence.
The 5015 has fully variable threshold, ratio, attack, release and makeup gain with two selectable VCA modes that provide for exceptional control of any source material. In order to control gain, a V.C.A. or Voltage Controlled Amplifier (or Attenuator) is used. The compressor in the Portico 5015 makes use of a very accurate, low noise, low distortion V.C.A. having, essentially, no signature of its own.
Low noise, high performance
All Portico modules use input and output transformers and, almost entirely discrete component amplifiers. In fact the Line amplifiers on their own, inserted into the signal chain, are capable of enhancing the sonic quality of many signal sources, especially those of digital origin. These are some of the factors that enable, the Portico 5043, to work so unobtrusively within the context of a very high quality audio chain.
