We are excited to hear the latest new from Rupert Neve Designs. The addition of two 500 series modules. The first being the 511 Mic Pre and the second being the 542 Tape Emulator. The 511 Mic Pre includes circuitry from the 517, the sweepable high-pass filter from the 5012, and the variable Silk circuit adopted from the flagship Portico II Channel. And at a street price of $545.00 that you give you enough extra dough to 2 or 3!
The 542 Tape Emulator is derived from the Portico 5042. Just like its big brother, the 542 gives you that classic tape sound and drive you need to add color and texture to your mixes. Pro Audio Boutique will have these available around the beginning of February 2013.
