Brings the legendary Neve sound to the world of digital music production.

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.

Compatible with industry standards
The Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5043 is available in VST 3, VST 2.4 and AU plug-in format, allowing for multi-instance use with digital audio workstations such as Cubase, Nuendo, WaveLab and Logic.

NOTE: The USB-eLicenser required to run this product is not included. Customers who do not own an USB-eLicenser must purchase one separately. The same USB-eLicenser copy protection device is then used for all Steinberg products that require it.

      Comments about Steinberg RND Portico 5043 Compressor:

      I use some very nice outboard gear, and this seems to keep up with my UA gear. I guess it should, with the name (Neve) it was able to carry. Expensive for a single plug in, but overall well worth it...
