      For Gear Heads:

      Rupert Neve Designs 5024 is four channels of renowned preamplification, independent silk controls, two channels of DI inputs, and an M-S Decoder into a 1U enclosure, the 5024 is workhorse equipped to enhance the front end performance of any digital or analogue recording system. Each channel of the Portico 5024 is based around the custom transformers and class-A circuitry found in the 5012.

      In addition to 72 dB of gain, the Rupert Neve 5024’s mic pres include individually selectable phase, mute, phantom power, a selectable frequency high pass filter, and the Silk circuit which yields the rich warmth and presence of the renowned classic designs. Channels 1 & 2 of the 5024 feature a high-Z input designed for instrument level sources. Channels 3 & 4 feature an M-S switch, which enables Mid-Side decoding without the use of multiple console channels.

      Layman's Terms:

      The Rupert Neve Designs 5024 Quad Mic Amp is giving you (4) Channels of Class A Mic Preamp with 72dB of gain.  The Rupert Neve Designs preamp "sound" can be best described as an open and detailed sound with character.  It is not fully clean or colored.  It has plenty of gain to take on most any type of microphone and gives you some extra bells and whistles that will definitely come in handy.  Such as a D.I. and THRU inputs on Channels 1-2 and Channels 3 & 4 feature an M-S switch, which enables Mid-Side decoding without the use of multiple console channels. 

    • Silk

      Much could be written about this feature, suffice to say, that it gives a subtle option to enhance sound quality in the direction of vintage modules. The Silk button reduces negative feedback and adjusts the frequency spectrum to provide a very sweet and musical performance. We suggest you try it and make your own judgment.

      M-S

      The M-S button engages Mid-Side decoding on channels 3 & 4. Channel 3 level controls the mid signal, and channel 4 level controls the side signal.

      Instrument Inputs

      Balanced or unbalanced Hi-Z input for instruments using the Mic Pre's gain circuitry.

      Level Meter

      -30 dBu to +22 dBu With reference to the output

      Mute

      Cuts of the output signal post metering and pre Buss Output. Be sure to mute the outputs before engaging phantom power.

      High Pass Filter

      The High pass filter is a valuable aid in any signal chain but particularly so in a microphone preamplifier. Signals below 30 or 90 Hz can be attenuated at 12dB / Octave, leaving the range above this unaffected. This gets rid of building rumble, air handling motor hum etc.

      Phantom Power

      Provides 48V phantom power to microphones

      Phase Inverts

      Reverses the polarity of an incoming source signa
