Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor at a Glance:
Powerful and flexible compression
Both channels of the Portico II Master Buss Processor feature one of Rupert Neve Designs' most versatile compressors to date. Whether you want to add punch to your mix or smooth out your vocal subgroup, the Portico II Master Buss Processor has the compression you need. Controls for ratio, threshold, attack, release, blend, side chain highpass filter, limit, and make up gain let you dial in the perfect compression quickly an easily. Use the two compressors independently, or instantly link them with the push of a button. Texture controls with Silk/Silk + tonality lets you add classic Neve warmth, and a blend control lets you dial in dry signal, so you can get all of the compression you want without losing transients. What's more, the Portico II Master Buss Processor lets you dial in feed-back or feed-forward compression modes, so you can choose from vintage or modern tones.
Transparent and musical limiter that's super-easy to use
Often overlooked at first glance, the Portico II Master Buss Processor's 1-knob limiter is a powerful and flexible tool. This simple limiter lets you get the most out of the Portico II Master Buss Processor's compression section, giving you the option to blend compressed and dry signals together and still keep sharp transients from clipping. Rupert Neve Designs' Adaptive Release Technology also gives this limiter its unique ability to grab onto fast transients, without smothering the rest of the signal.
Amazing Stereo Field Editor section expands the depth of your sound
Although the Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor functions wonderfully as a dual-mono processor, it really shines in stereo mode. That's thanks to its unique Stereo Field Editor. The Stereo Field Editor uses advanced Mid/Side stereo manipulation techniques, allowing you to adjust your stereo bus's width, depth, and ambience. Beyond widening your stereo image, the Portico II Master Buss Processor can actually bring center-panned instruments out in your mix. That makes the Portico II Master Buss Processor as invaluable a tool for mixing down as it is for defining the spread of your subgroups.

MBP is a MUST HAVE!!!!!
by James Linton from ArizonaWhen I received this unit my hands were shaking with anticipation!! I had read about what it could do but hearing it on the first few mixes was just amazing!!! The compression and limiting is unbeliev... read more [+]ably transparent, I have seen up to 12db of reduction with no artifacts!!The stereo field editor is jaw dropping, the silk mode(s) are...Neve silky!!!! Speaking o the silk modes, if you want to add color these are awesome. I have had excellent results using the silk + mode on electronic music to smooth out harshness and add warmth. Let's just say that to purchase a bus processor and also get the option to add the famous color of a Neve console is the bargain of the century. On top of that the plethora of features include some awesome shelving EQ'S. This unit could take the place of three separate units and as a result is a true time saver. I can get phenomenal results in extremely short periods of time. Don't get me wrong, this thing is full featured and it takes some time to understand it's capabilities and uses but once you get the hang of it you will wonder how you mixed and/or mastered without it. in my opinion this is a MUST HAVE and an instant classic!! close [-]
