The San Francisco AES Conference will see the release of the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5024 Quad Mic Amp.

Portico 5024Based around custom transformers and class-A topologies, the 5024 reckons to ‘combine extraordinary purity with the sweet musical performance expected from a Rupert Neve Design’. With four channels of Portico Series preamplification, independent Silk controls, two channels of DI and an M-S decoder, the 5024 is well equipped to use at the front-end of both digital and analogue recording systems.

‘Transformers have always been a signature component of my designs, and the implementation of custom transformers with the class-A circuit topologies developed for the Portico Series have drawn on countless years of knowledge,’ says RND founder and head designer, Rupert Neve. ‘As the result of countless hours of experimentation, these preamplifier designs greatly enhance sonic performance, and make listening a more enjoyable experience.’

In addition to 72dB of gain, the 5024’s mic preamps include individually selectable phase, mute, phantom power, a selectable frequency high-pass filter and the Silk circuit, which adds the warmth and presence associated with classic analogue designs. Channels 1 & 2 have a high-Z input for instrument level sources, while Channels 3 & 4 feature an M-S switch, which enables Mid-Side decoding without the use of multiple console channels.

‘Versatility has always been a forte of the Portico Series pres,’ says RND Marketing Director, Tristan Rhodes. ‘Engineers ranging from high-end producers to project studio hobbyists have learned to trust Portico modules to sound amazing with virtually any source material or microphone.’
