Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor Overview

The Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor is a high-end analog processor designed to deliver exceptional audio quality and versatility. It offers a comprehensive suite of features for processing and shaping audio.

Based around the high voltage, discrete, and class-A signal paths made famous in the 5088 Mixer, the Portico II Master Buss Processor is a creative tool that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel compression and limiting.

Though originally developed for mastering applications, the MBP quickly became a favorite of mix engineers, tracking engineers, and even FOH engineers.

From mixing bass-heavy EDM to a delicate master of a chamber ensemble, it has something to offer everyone, no matter the use or genre.

Note – The Side Chain (SC) buttons for the Portico II are set to fixed positions and not controllable from the Plugin. The SC 125Hz High Pass Filter button is engaged. The SC Insert button is disengaged, and there is no equipment connected to the side chain ports.
