Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5015-V Mic Pre/Compressor

The Portico 5015 from Rupert Neve designs melds two invaluable Portico components into a single compact module. Using the same preamps and compressor-limiter sections as its 5012 and 5043 siblings, the 5015 easily affords a characteristically low-noise performance alongside exceptional sonic quality.

In addition to boasting selectable phase, phantom power, muting, and a high-pass filter, the preamps benefit from a dedicated Silk circuit that adds additional creaminess and presence to the output signal. Additionally, the 5015’s compressor section features a precise, low-noise VCA that does not color the signal in any way. 

This is the VERTICAL version of the Portico 5015 Mic-Pre/Compressor.
