Rupert Neve 5043 Duo Compressor / Limiter is a powerful approach to dynamic processing, designed with both tracking and mixing applications in mind.
Portico 5043 contains two independent compressor ducts (ducts A and B), housed within a half rack, 1U module.
They can be used independently (on two different tracks) or in a stereo setup.
5043 is available in both horizontal and vertical versions.
Continuously variable from 6 dB to +20 dB.
Continuously variable from 36 dB to +22 dB.
Continuously variable from 1.1: 1 to Limit (40: 1).
Continuously variable from 20mS to 75mS
Continuously variable from 100mS to 2.5 Seconds.
FF / FB:
Feed-Forward or Feed-Back VCA control.
S / C or LINK:
Multiple 5043's may be daisy-chained via the rear panel jacks. When an individual channel is engaged, its control voltage appears at the rear panel LINK jack. When both channels are engaged they are linked together internally and their control voltage also appears at the rear panel LINK jack.
