There are countless 500 series modules on offer today, but ours are the only ones designed specifically for the 500 series by Mr. Rupert Neve.
Capturing the quality of our equipment within the confines of the lower voltage and current available of the 500 series standard took painstaking effort. With new transformer and amplifier designs, these new Rupert Neve Designs 500 series modules offer superb performance with the flexibility and affordability the 500 series is known for.
R10 Ten Slot 500 Series Rack
The R10 is a rack-mountable powerhouse for your studio or mobile rig, with more than 150% the required power for your ten favorite 500 Series modules.
R6 Six Slot 500 Series Rack
With abundant power and versatile connections, the R6 delivers peace of mind for engineers who demand a higher degree of confidence in their 500 Series racks.
511 Mic Pre with Texture
With a big, bold preamp and the flexibility of variable Silk/Texture, Rupert Neve designed the 511 to combine classic sonics with 500-series value. Incorporating the 517′s powerful preamp, the 5012′s universally useful sweepable high pass filter, and the transformer-saturating power of a variable silk circuit derived from our flagship Portico II Channel, the 511 is a Rupert Neve-designed mic pre for the masses.
517 Mic Pre / DI / Comp
Based on the Portico 5017 Mobile Pre, the 517 provides world-class transformer-coupled micpreamp, compressor and DI circuitry with Vari-phase, “Silk” and DI/mic blending capabilities – all in a single 500 series module.
535 Diode Bridge Compressor
Punchy, thick and versatile, the 535 Diode Bridge Compressor captures the soul of Rupert Neve’s original 2254 compressor while providing modern updates including advanced timing control, significantly lower noise, fully stepped controls throughout, and internal parallel processing capabilities. Originally developed for the dynamics circuit of the acclaimed Shelford Channel, the 535 is outfitted with Rupert Neve Designs’ custom transformers and class-A output amplifiers, all tailor-made for the popular 500-series format.
542 Tape Emulator with Texture
The 542 delivers a thick, musical simulation of tape while drastically enhancing creative control over the 5042 via a number of new features. In addition to the the “true tape” circuitry – great for bringing out 3rd-order harmonics – the 542 incorporates a soft-clip circuit that tames the harshest sources and enhances 2nd-order harmonics, a variable and versatile Silk/Texture circuit for three transformer tones in one, and a wet/dry control to blend in the perfect amount of saturation.
543 Mono Compressor / Limiter
The 543 Mono Compressor delivers the unobtrusive, musical-sounding dynamic control and brick-wall limiting made famous in the Portico 5043 to the 500 series format. The 543 features a fully controllable compressor-limiter with feed-forward / feedback modes, Peak / RMS detection and a built in side chain high pass filter.
551 Inductor EQ
The 551 Inductor EQ is the only equalizer for the 500 Series actually designed by Rupert Neve. Featuring 3 bands of EQ inspired by Mr. Neve’s most prized vintage designs, along with custom-wound inductors, transformers and class-A gain blocks, the 551 brings the thick, powerful lows and sweet highs of Rupert’s classics to the 500-Series format for the very first time.
