Legendary Rupert Neve sound now heard in VST 3 and AU plug-ins with Yamaha VCM technology ported from Portico 5033 five-band EQ and Portico 5043 compressor



Hamburg/Anaheim  – Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH is delighted and honored to announce the release of two pro-audio VST/AU signal processing plug-ins that reflect the overarching alliance between Yamaha, Rupert Neve Designs, Inc. and Steinberg. Both 5033 EQ and 5043 compressor plug-ins are now  available.

“By announcing the release of two virtual pendants of the renowned Portico signal  processors, the alliance between Yamaha, Rupert Neve Designs and Steinberg is coming to fruition. I’m elated to count these two highly sophisticated effect plug-ins to our product range, as both meet Steinberg’s exacting standards,” said Andreas Stelling, Steinberg’s  managing director.

Particularly known for designing all-analog signal processing equipment, Rupert Neve has been looking for the right technology to port his legendary designs to the digital domain. With Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, this coveted intention was able to be realized, evolving to an alliance between Yamaha, Rupert Neve Designs and Steinberg. The very first plug-ins incorporating VCM  technology emulating analog Portico hardware are now the RND Portico 5033  equalizer and RND Portico 5043 compressor.

“With  the Yamaha VCM technology, we’re able to pick up the amazing quality of  musicality and accuracy that was inherent in the original Rupert Neve Designs  Portico modules,” said Rupert Neve.

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.
