For the year of 2010, one new studio product has stood out to the judges of Audio Pro International; the Portico II: Channel.
Based around the High Voltage and Discrete circuitry developed for the 5088 Mixer, the Portico II Channel stands as the pinnacle of Mr. Rupert Neve’s designs. By combining the exceptionally pure, transformer coupled architecture of the 5088 with a revolutionary feature set including the new variable texture control, silk / silk + modes, 4-band EQ, tunable de-esser, compressor-limiter and outstanding preamplifier, the Portico II achieves both irreproachable sonics and unparalleled versatility.
