Rupert Neve Designs announces the launch of the Portico™ 5043 Compressor/Limiter Duo, delivering two channels of musical sounding dynamics as well as ultra-transparent "brick-wall" limiting in a half rack 1RU space. Featuring fully controllable dual mono and stereo operation, selectable buss or line level inputs, Gain from -6dB to +20dB, Threshold from -30dB to +33dB, Ratio from 1:1 to 1:40, External Link, To Buss Output and revolutionary Feedforward/ Feedback detection switching, the 5043 yields a combination of rich warmth, flexibility and precision that is sure to resonate in the ears of sound engineers the world over.
Conceived, designed and built in Central Texas by Rupert Neve Design's, the 5043 is the first module created to utilize the secondary buss signal outputs incorporated into the Portico Range. By accessing these secondary outputs, chains of modules may now be integrated into flexible arrays, configured to function as cue feeds, solo busses, or secondary outputs.
When either buss or line level is selected, custom designed transformers couple the input and output to create a true floating ground, ensuring compatibility with modules outside of the Portico Range, and imparting the rich warmth that is so revered in Mr. Rupert Neve's classic designs. With the compressor inactive, the 5043 may be used as a full, transformer-coupled, high-performance line amplifier that includes a Gain range of - 6dB and - 20 dB.
