Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Channel

Rupert Neve channel strip
  • Texture: continuously variable control for Silk and Silk+ modes allows the engineer to fine tune the harmonic ratio and tonality of the channel.
  • Post comp: moves the EQ after the compressor
  • De-Esser: tunable with the HMF EQ bandwidth reduction, the multi-variable De-Esser can be used to soften harsh sibilance in voices and instruments

A self-powered 2U channel module comprised of a fully- featured mic preamplifier, 4-band EQ, compressor-limiter, “texture”control and level metering, The Portico II Channel includes a bevy of new features including: Variable Silk / Silk+ Texture control, a fully tunable “de-esser”, multiple VCA filtering and detection options, a transient-optimized swept HPF and parallel compression blending. With its simple yet powerful topologies and extensive feature set, every element of the Portico II: Channel is geared towards empowering recording artists to realize these visions.

Key features

  • Texture: continuously variable control for Silk and Silk+ modes allows the engineer to fine tune the harmonic ratio and tonality of the channel.
  • Post comp: moves the EQ after the compressor
  • De-Esser: tunable with the HMF EQ bandwidth reduction, the multi-variable De-Esser can be used to soften harsh sibilance in voices and instruments
  • Blend: a parallel matrix providing continuously variable control to mix compressed and uncompressed signals
  • FF/FB: changes the VCA Detection from a forward feed design (fast, more accurate attack & release) to a feed back design (smoother, more musical response)
  • RMS / Peak: overrides the attack setting, using a combination of peak and RMS detection set below 1ms
  • Side chain send/return: external compressor side chain send and return on 2 x TRS jacks. The send is always active and normalled to the return (NOTE: If the send and return are connected to a patchbay, the send should be normalled or connected to the return by default, as the compressor will not trigger if the return has no signal)
  • Meters: dual 16 point peak meters display compressor (not de-esser) gain reduction and output levels
  • High pass filter: continuously variable from 20-250Hz
  • HPF to side chain: uses the HPF in the compressor side chain
  • Gain: provides 66dB in 6dB steps
  • Trim: continuous +/- 6dB level contro
  • Phase inverts: reverses the polarity of the signal
  • Phantom power
  • DI: discrete FET input for Hi-Z instruments
  • Line input: selectable +4 balanced input
  • LF EQ: +/-15dB adjustment at 35, 60, 100, and 220 Hz, independent LF engage, selectable classic bell or accelerated shelf curves
  • LMF EQ: +/-15dB adjustment from 70 to 1.4KHz, with a continuous "Q" from .7 to 5., engaged with the MF switch
  • HMF EQ: +/-15dB adjustment from 700Hz to 14KHz, with a continuous "Q" from .7 to 5., engaged with the MF switch
  • HF EQ: +/-15dB adjustment at 4.7, 6.8, 12, and 25kHz, independent HF engage, selectable classic bell or accelerated shelf curves
  • All EQ In: enables all EQ Bands (Individual bands must still be engaged)
  • Comp In: engages compressor section
