Sweet!Sweet Neve tone! The DI works great for Bass. The mic pre is awesome on vocals, acoustic guitar and sounds killer on elctric guitar as well. Lots of features in this little box 'o tone! Love the blend and the live acoustic guitar/vocalist ability. Improved my recordings exponentially. -jp

King Of Sound Mr. NeveThe 5017 Portico, is a pre-amps, high quality compressor, I have tried several pre-amps, but nothing compares to Portico 5017 of the King of the sound Mr. Rupert Neve. Pre-amps is clean, large and graceful when you use it in voices, guitars, bass and all metal instrument and string. I use it with the Neumann TLM 102 MT and it sounds fantastic voices. try it and you see.

NEVE IS PURE HEAVENi cant believe i only paid 1000 bucks for this sound. i hooked it up to my sE Gemini 2 and i could only turn the gain up ONE NOTCH because the signal was so upfront! this unit gives you that Neve Sound at a price that is just hard to beat. i have had a few High Dollar Mic Pres in the last few years but i have never achieved the kind of Pure Vocal Heaven as i have with the Mobile Pre. and Guitars too.
and its so easy to carry it to sessions elsewhere too! I wish i had made the move to NEVE years ago. AND SWEETWATER SHIPPED IT TO ME IN 3 DAYS! unheard of. THANKS AGAIN.
