Legacy Products

These are Rupert Neve Designs products that are no longer manufactured:

5012: Dual Mic Pre (Replaced by 5211)
The Portico 5012 is a dual channel mic pre featuring Rupert Neve’s custom input and output transformer designs. In addition to individually selectable phase, mute, phantom power and a fully sweepable high pass filter, the 5012 incorporates a “Silk” circuit which yields the rich warmth and presence of his renowned classics.

5014: Stereo Field Editor (Incorporated into Master Buss Processor)
The Portico 5014 Stereo Field Editor introduces an innovative application of well-known techniques that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel stereo recording and playback. Operating entirely in the analogue domain, the Portico 5014 uses discrete component circuits, comprising a variable sum and difference network with level and phase controls, together with other key features, to affect stereo sources.

5015: Mic Pre and Compressor
The Portico 5015 is a half rack, 1U module that embodies a Microphone Preamplifier and Compressor, which can be used separately or together.

5016: Mic Pre and DI (Replaced by 5017)
The Portico 5016 is a half rack, 1U module that embodies a Microphone Preamplifier and a DI, which can be used separately or together to provide an innovative and powerful approach to the recording of musical instruments.

5032: Mic Pre / EQ (Replaced by Shelford 5052)
The Portico 5032 is a single channel Mic Pre/EQ having an independent transformer-coupled Line level input for the EQ section. It includes a full-featured Mic Pre identical to that in the 5012, with the addition of a flexible 3-band Equalizer in the Mr. Rupert Neve tradition. The 5032 is equipped with high and low frequency shelving curves and a Parametric Mid Band covering 80Hz-8kHz in two ranges.

5033: Five Band EQ
The 5033 features Rupert’s custom input and output transformer designs, five bands of EQ based on his traditional curves, +/-12dB input level adjustment, and five filter bypasses. It comes available in either horizontal or vertical formats, for rack-mounting or inclusion in a 5088 console.

5042: True Tape FX (Replaced by 542)
The Portico™ 5042 Two Channel “True Tape” Emulation and Line Driver unit’s emulation circuit provides the nostalgic rounding and compression usually only achieved by the use of tape. This typically offsets the harshness often found in digital recordings. The Portico™ 5042 incorporates an actual tape drive circuit that feeds a tiny magnetic “head” which, in turn, is coupled to a correctly equalized, replay amplifier.

5043: Dual Compressor-Limiter
The 5043 Duo Compressor/Limiter is a powerful approach to dynamics processing for the Portico Series, designed with both tracking and mixing applications in mind.
