Steinberg Media Technologies has released the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5033 EQ and 5043 Compressor, two pro-audio VST/AU signal processing plug-ins. The hardware of Rupert Neve Designs has now been successfully emulated in the digital domain utilizing Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology.
The RND Portico 5033 five-band equalizer comes with three bands of fully parametric filters, each with dedicated gain, center-frequency, and Q controls as well as one band each of high and low-shelving filters. A global bypass switch and trim control are also available.
The RND Portico 5043 compressor features threshold, ratio, attack, release and gain controls for intricate signal compression. The feed-forward or feed-back compression mode allow users to switch between an aggressive and subtle compression response.
