  1. Mega Rupert Neve Designs Demo With New 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor And Master Buss Converter

    Mega Rupert Neve Designs Demo With New 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor And Master Buss Converter
    Rupert Neve Designs is celebrating its 15th year in pro audio by dropping a few new releases that will have engineers salivating. Earlier this month, the Texas-based brand announced its Master Buss Converter and we're excited to say that today brings us the launch of the 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor. Before we get into our demo video that includes both pieces of gear, let's talk a little about what's going on with this new equipment. Let's start first with the 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor. Rupert Neve got his start making diode bridge compressors in the early 1970s and these designs have become known for bringing warmth and acting as the glue on mixes. The only issue when using a diode bridge compressor in the modern studio is that the controls can be slightly limiting (pun not intended). Not the case anymore, thanks to Rupert! Continue reading →

    Warming Your Digital Signal With Rupert Neve Design's New Master Buss Converter
    When you think about the classic circuits Rupert Neve has created, you think warmth. With the release of Rupert Neve Design's Master Buss Converter, you'll be able to track, mix and master with a versatile A/D design that offers that classic color, as well as transparency. The key to this multi-faceted approach is the unit's newly designed analog drive circuitry. With this option, you will be able to feed converters with a signal sent through either a Class A transformerless path or a path with audio transformers featuring Rupert Neve Design's Silk Red and Blue circuity. If you decide to take the transformerless route, you'll get pristine conversion that is completely transparent. Go with the Silk Red and Blue path and you'll be able to work with that signature tone and sonic character Rupert is known for. Continue reading →

    First Listen: Rupert Neve Designs 5211 Dual Mic Preamp
    Whenever we talk about thought leaders or innovation in pro audio, one must begin with Rupert Neve. While he got his start creating monitors, Rupert will forever be known for his work designing consoles and mic pres. The timeless 1073 has long been lauded as the world's preeminent mic pre, a design which Rupert has continued to build upon with his current brand, Rupert Neve Designs. For their latest product, the 5211 two-channel mic pre, Rupert Neve Designs has taken elements from their original 5012 two-channel mic pre and given them a significant upgrade for 2019. One of the biggest updates is the addition of a variable Silk control, which offers users the ability to finely control Rupert's Class A output stage (the same as the Shelford Channel). The original only featured a single Silk button with no knob to control the output. Continue reading →
