Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5015 by WilfredoFernando
The sound quality is great and you can push the gain really hard and it saturate in a musical way. Good warms, what come out fit almost perfectly on any kind of mix.
Feeling comfortable with my pop/rock vocal, i feel its a thin line between cutting trough the mix and the flat. There is a great feel in the mid freq. I feel it could fit any type of genre and it would do an excellent job.
When playing it without pushing the gain you get a nice clean sounds. And no noise is on the background since the case is made to be protected against.
The silk button: enhancing the low frequency giving to your sounds an extra warms.
The compressor: it is real analog. The ratio, attack, release, threshold and the make up gain to save the day.
FF/FB: Feed forward and feed-back button available. Feed forward being really accurate and fast responding.
Easy to use: Everything is accessible on the front panel. Experimentation with different values are really fun when exploring the 5015.
Features: Mic preamp, low pass filter and a good compressor, all good quality, what else can you ask.
Bang for buck: Want good gear? I was looking for a pro sound, now i got it. Its a huge step up for my vocal and its an investment . But I feel it's a good investment, because this will last for years to come. Really solid, and the sound that you get is worth.
