Reverb Estimated Price Range

  • $1,000$1,100

The Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5012 is a dual channel microphone preamplifier. Stepped control for gain goes up to +66dB, with an additional +6dB available via the output trim control. The 5012 also features Rupert Neve Designs' "Silk" switch (one switch controls both channels) and a variable high-pass filter for additional processing.

The white panel version is electrically identical to the first red / blue issue. The change was made so that the modules would cosmetically match the 5088 console.
