Rupert Neve Designs RND Portico II - Master Buss Processor - Black

The Rupert Neve Designs Portico II Master Buss Processor features a comprehensive compressor with blend control, limiter, stereo field editor and texture control designed to enable the user to shape the sound of the master bus no matter what the genre.

Based around the high voltage, discrete and class-A signal paths made famous in the 5088 Mixer, the 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 has quickly become a favourite 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.


  • Powerful 2-channel compressor/limiter/stereo field manipulator
  • Full compression sections for both channels, including attack, release, ratio, and threshold controls
  • Side chain inputs with high-pass filters for both compressors
  • Feed-back/Feed-forward controls let you select from modern and vintage compression sounds
  • Texture control with 2 Silk modes let you add classic Rupert Neve tone
  • Blend controls allow you to mix dry signal back into your compression, preserving transients while adding
  • punch
  • Simple and highly musical 1-knob limiter with Adaptive Release Technology allows for brick-wall limiting
  • that doesn't distort or affect levels under the threshold
  • Stereo Field Editor section includes independent controls for width and depth as well as the width and
  • depth EQs, allowing you to dial in the perfect stereo field
