Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor


The Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor: Based around the high voltage, discrete and class-A signal paths made famous in the 5088 Mixer, the Master Buss Processor is a creative tool that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel compression and limiting. Though originally developed for mastering applications, the MBP has quickly become a favorite of mastering engineers,


  • Powerful 2-channel compressor/limiter/stereo field manipulator
  • Full compression sections for both channels, including attack, release, ratio, and threshold controls
  • Side chain inputs with high-pass filters for both compressors
  • Feed-back/Feed-forward controls let you select from modern and vintage compression sounds
  • Texture control with 2 Silk modes let you add classic Rupert Neve tone
  • Blend controls allow you to mix dry signal back into your compression, preserving transients while adding
  • punch
  • Simple and highly musical 1-knob limiter with Adaptive Release Technology allows for brickwall limiting
  • that doesn’t distort or affect levels under the threshold
  • Stereo Field Editor section includes independent controls for width and depth as well as the width and
  • depth EQs, allowing you to dial in the perfect stereo field
