The Portico 5017 from Rupert Neve is an innovative and powerful tool for recording or live performance. It is comprised of a rugged, portable chassis with world-class preamp, compressor and DI circuits as well as two channel operation, Vari-phase, Silk and DI/mic blending capabilities.

Rupert Neve 5017 Features

  • With two transformer coupled outputs, the 5017 has separate line outputs for the DI/Blend and Mic signals when the blend control is set to fully DI. The mic output is always independent.
  • Silk circuit enhances the source’s harmonic content in a manner very reminiscent of many of Rupert’s class-A vintage designs.
  • 12-way precision rotary switch covering Line (0) and Mic from 0 to 66 dB in 6 dB steps
  • Continuous gain control from 0dB to 30dB
  • Thru & Inst 1/4" Phone Jacks - Balanced or unbalanced Hi-Z input for instruments, with a THRU output to send signal to an amplifier
  • High pass filter
  • Push button inverts the polarity of the mic input signal path. The symbol “Ø” is often used to denote opposite polarity
  • Vari-phase control
  • Based around a new LDR (light dependent resister) design, the 5017’s opto-coupler compressor has been simplified to a single threshold control with auto make up gain. By default, the compressor is set to a fixed 2:1 ratio with fixed attack and release. To set the compressor, simply dial the threshold control down until the desired amount of compression is achieved. An LED light indicates when the compressor is active
  • Indicators denote signal presence and clipping on both DI and mic signals, as well as compressor activation
  • Two internal jumpers in the 5017 can be set to change the compressor from the mic channel to the DI / blend channel, and to change the compressor time constant from standard to fast
