RND Portico 5043

The Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5043 is a high-end compressor that brings the legendary Neve sound to the world of digital music production. Incorporating Yamaha’s VCM technology, this plug-in exactly reproduces the analog punch, warmth and clarity of the hardware original.

Five parameters for exceptional sound

Following the hardware equivalent, the Portico 5043 houses five essential parameters: Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release and Gain. A minimalistic approach, that allows to focus purely on the sound that needs to be processed. Thanks to VCM technology, the depth and sonic character of Rupert Neve’s analog sound is directly transformed into the digital recording environment — without the need to deal with dozens of parameters to get that signature sound.

Feed-Forward and Feed-Back compression

The Portico 5043 features two working modes: Feed-Forward and Feed-Back compression. These modes provide two entirely different compression characteristics to choose from. While the Feed-Back mode is more musical and sweeter, the Feed-Forward mode works with even greater accuracy.

Optical feedback

The compressor also includes two virtual LED metering displays, showing the level of the input signal as well as the amount of gain reduction. Another virtual signal LED shows whether a signal is currently processed or not.
