The sound of the EMI\/Abbey Road Studios equipment is world renowned, and imparts a unique and pleasing sonic character as heard on many famous recordings done at Abbey Road including The Beatles’ “Abbey Road” and Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” albums. For the first time ever, the legendary TG2 pre-amp sound is available in 500 Series format.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe TG2-500 microphone pre-amplifier features the same discrete, transformer-balanced amplifiers as Chandler Limited’s TG series: TG2 Pre Amp\/DI, TG Channel MKII, and TG1 Limiter.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe’ve taken the microphone pre-amplifier and line amplifier from our highly acclaimed TG2 Pre Amp\/DI and packaged it for the industry standard 500 Series format, while retaining the sound of Chandler Limited’s TG2 Pre Amp\/DI.

The Mono Optograph's front end is balanced by an original Jensen input transformer. The output utilizes our specially recreated Nickel transformer. The essence of the compressor's character comes from our custom electroluminescent cell and discrete op-amp combination. The high quality circuit is pristine enough for bus compression, and yet has a unique character reminiscent of an antique world class compressor, that has just now been discovered. It's also perfect for squeezing drum busses and massaging vocals. It's the perfect glue for tracking and mixing anything that needs to sound more finished, more like a record.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eJust like The Mastering Compressor, the Optograph's threshold and make up gain are controlled by discrete attenuators, made from custom twenty-four position Elma switches. The tactile feel and quality of these controls are unrivaled. They are of the highest quality and will last forever.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBuilt into the side chain, are a very powerful series of filters: 90 hertz, 150 hertz, 250 hertz, and band pass. By engaging a specific filter, you choose at which point the onset of compression occurs. First position, nothing below ninety triggers compression. Second position, nothing below one-fifty. Third, nothing below two-fifty. The fourth position is a musical bandpass filter. In this position, compression is triggered by the program's mid-range frequency content, ignoring the highest and lowest frequencies. The filters are amazingly useful for shifting the focus of what should be more compressed and creating compression curves on purpose.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAnother unique feature for sculpting the overall sonic character is the Transformer Desaturate mode. In this mode we cancel out any distortion and frequency non-linearity’s caused by the output transformer. The result is a pure, almost transformer-less sound, whilst still receiving the benefits, of limiting transients that can only come from magnetics.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThere is also a VU meter for the display of gain reduction.

The essence of the compressor's character comes from our custom electroluminescent cell and discrete op-amp combination. The high quality circuit is pristine enough for bus compression, and yet has a unique character reminiscent of an antique world class compressor, that has just now been discovered. It's also perfect for squeezing drum busses and massaging vocals. It's the perfect glue for tracking and mixing anything that needs to sound more finished, more like a record.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eJust like The Mastering Compressor, the Optograph's threshold and make up gain are controlled by discrete attenuators, made from custom twenty-four position Elma switches. The tactile feel and quality of these controls are unrivaled. They are of the highest quality and will last forever.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBuilt into the side chain, are a very powerful series of filters: 90 hertz, 150 hertz, 250 hertz, and band pass. By engaging a specific filter, you choose at which point the onset of compression occurs. First position, nothing below ninety triggers compression. Second position, nothing below one-fifty. Third, nothing below two-fifty. The fourth position is a musical bandpass filter. In this position, compression is triggered by the program's mid-range frequency content, ignoring the highest and lowest frequencies. The filters are amazingly useful for shifting the focus of what should be more compressed and creating compression curves on purpose.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAnother unique feature for sculpting the overall sonic character is the Transformer Desaturate mode. In this mode we cancel out any distortion and frequency non-linearity’s caused by the output transformer. The result is a pure, almost transformer-less sound, whilst still receiving the benefits, of limiting transients that can only come from magnetics.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThere is also a VU meter for the display of gain reduction.

It can deliver ultra clean SSL SuperAnalogueTM grade recordings but also features a switchable VHD mode. SSL's patented Variable Harmonic Drive (VHD) system uses a 100% analogue signal path to generate rich harmonic distortion. As you increase VHD input gain, the Variable Harmonic Drive process introduces either 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion or a blend of the two to your source material. At lower gain settings it adds gentle valve-style warmth or a touch of transistor edge. As the gain is increased the more extreme the distortion becomes until at high gain settings it delivers fierce trashy transistoresque grunge. The VHD Pre gives the user ultimate versatility from a studio grade preamp. Whether it's ultra-clean traditional SSL, subtle warming or totally trashy transistor distortion, VHD will change your expectations of what a preamplifier should deliver.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe VHD section of the VHD Pre Module has three rotary controls: a Drive control selects 2nd harmonic or 3rd harmonic distortion or a continuously variable blend of the two.

It can deliver ultra clean SSL SuperAnalogueTM grade recordings but also features a switchable VHD mode.

As you increase VHD input gain, the Variable Harmonic Drive process introduces either 2nd or 3rd harmonic distortion or a blend of the two to your source material. At lower gain settings it adds gentle valve-style warmth or a touch of transistor edge. As the gain is increased the more extreme the distortion becomes until at high gain settings it delivers fierce trashy transistoresque grunge.

While it is possible to create a functioning EQ using off-the-shelf inductors, the attention to detail in controlling variables such as the winding and core materials in relation to the surrounding circuitry allows the 551 EQ to capture the vitality of Rupert’s older designs.

The 543 features a fully controllable compressor-limiter with feed-forward \/ feedback modes, Peak \/ RMS detection and a built in side chain high pass filter. With an unrivaled heritage and a tremendous feature set, the 543 yields a combination of rich warmth, flexibility and precision that is sure to resonate in the ears of sound engineers the world over.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBuilt around Mr. Rupert Neve’s custom transformer designs, each 543 module encompasses individually controllable threshold, attack, release, makeup gain, ratio, side chain HPF, Feed-Forward \/ Feed-back selection and Peak\/RMS detection modes. With the compressor inactive, the 543 may be used as a transformer-coupled, high-performance line amplifier, and two 543 may be linked for stereo operation as well. The chassis is built to standard 500 series specifications, with power and I\/O provided by the rack.\u003cbr\u003eHow the Compressor Works\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn order to control gain, a V.C.A. or Voltage Controlled Amplifier (or Attenuator) is used. There are many types of V.C. including the use of tubes, discrete and integrated solid state circuits and naturally non-linear devices, each one having its characteristic behavior that reflects sonically on the final performance, and gives it a character or signature that can be musically attractive or not! The 543 makes use of a very accurate, low noise, low distortion V.C.A. having, essentially, no signature of its own.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA part of the audio signal is rectified and smoothed to produce a suitable control voltage for the V.C.A. which has to respond very quickly and have low distortion. If the response is too fast, low frequency signals will themselves, be gain controlled! If the response is too slow, the signal will overshoot and the first few cycles will not get compressed. The speed and accuracy of the response, known as the \"attack\", and the time frame that gain remains under the initial control, known as \"release\" or \"recovery\" and plays a large part in the way a compressor sounds.\u003cbr\u003eFeed-Forward or Feed-Back?\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe 543 also has the ability to switch between feed-forward and feed-back modes. If the V.C.A. Control voltage is taken from the 543 output, (i.e. after the V.C.A.) it cannot act immediately on the V.C.A. because it has already been modified by settings of the V.C.A. and circuits through which it has passed. This is known as a \"Feed-Back\" compressor. The two compression characteristics are quite different; there is more \"Overshoot\" and both the attack and recovery ramps are changed, providing the user with powerful choices.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn most of Mr. Rupert Neve earliest designs, feed-back detection controlling the VCA with a rectified voltage from the unit output was intrinsic to the musical dynamic response. However, the very nature of a feedback compressor limits the attack time of the compression circuit. To offer faster, more technically accurate response times, feed-forward detection was implemented on Mr. Rupert Neve’s more modern designs. With the FF \/ FB switch, both classic and modern VCA responses are available.\u003cbr\u003eRMS or Peak?\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOne of the more unique features of the 543 is the new Peak \/ RMS mode also found in the Portico II Channel. This switch allows the VCA (voltage control amplifier) to respond to both RMS (Root Mean Square) and peak levels. RMS circuits are considered to better mimic the way the ears perceive apparent loudness, while peak circuits tend to directly respond to the waveform voltage which may be more of a concern for prevention of clipping and maximizing levels. In this case, peak mode uses a combination of both methods to get the best of both worlds, and avoids the drawbacks of each method on its own.\u003cbr\u003eRatio and Threshold\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAbove a given \"THRESHOLD\" signals are reduced by an adjustable amount ranging from 1:1, (which is linear, or no reduction at all), to more than 40:1 which is a very high ratio, equivalent to that of a Limiter. RATIO is sometimes referred to as \"Slope\" because when depicted on a graph, the slope of the graph representing Output versus Input, is what changes.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eRatio and Threshold are closely inter-dependent. If a RATIO as high as 40:1 has been set, then if the THRESHOLD is set at 0 dBu, even when a massive signal of +40 dBu (unlikely!) is presented to the input, the output signal will only be +1 dBu. RATIOS as high as this would normally be set somewhere above 0 dBu – say at +14 dBu, in order to prevent the output signal level exceeding just over +14 dBu to protect, for example, a digital recorder. Similarly, if a RATIO of 5:1 has been set, an input signal which is 10dB above THRESHOLD will only rise by 2dB above that THRESHOLD at the output.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTHRESHOLD control covers the Range from below -30dB to +22dBu. When THRESHOLD set at a low level, with a fairly high RATIO the amount of gain reduction will be considerable and it may be necessary to use some GAIN after the compressor to restore the apparent signal level.\u003cbr\u003eAttack Time\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe ATTACK time is the time taken for the compression circuits to start compressing. A long ATTACK time allows short duration peaks to \"escape\" and go through uncompressed. This may cause overload on subsequent digital circuits. A very short attack time sounds un-natural and robs the signal of \"life\" by removing transients. Some transients are extremely fast and have little effect on the sound quality. Setting a long attack time often means that almost no gain reduction occurs because the transient is history (!) before compression has had time to operate. However, even the fastest circuits take time to operate which means that there is always some \"Overshoot\". Small amounts of \"Overshoot\" are musically desirable – there are exceptions, of course.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSetting the right values of RELEASE and ATTACK is what compression is all about! Once the principles are understood a Compressor-Limiter such as the 543 provides a powerful tool that actually appears to enhance the dynamic range of a recording and so provide greater musical enjoyment.\u003cbr\u003eRelease \/ Recovery\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe notes above explain how the 543 handles signals of constant amplitude such as pure tones. Real program signals, however, are continually changing in level.

The 543 features a fully controllable compressor-limiter with feed-forward \/ feedback modes, Peak \/ RMS detection and a built in side chain high pass filter. With an unrivaled heritage and a tremendous feature set, the 543 yields a combination of rich warmth, flexibility and precision that is sure to resonate in the ears of sound engineers the world over.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBuilt around Mr. Rupert Neve’s custom transformer designs, each 543 module encompasses individually controllable threshold, attack, release, makeup gain, ratio, side chain HPF, Feed-Forward \/ Feed-back selection and Peak\/RMS detection modes. With the compressor inactive, the 543 may be used as a transformer-coupled, high-performance line amplifier, and two 543 may be linked for stereo operation as well. The chassis is built to standard 500 series specifications, with power and I\/O provided by the rack.\u003cbr\u003eHow the Compressor Works\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn order to control gain, a V.C.A. or Voltage Controlled Amplifier (or Attenuator) is used. There are many types of V.C. including the use of tubes, discrete and integrated solid state circuits and naturally non-linear devices, each one having its characteristic behavior that reflects sonically on the final performance, and gives it a character or signature that can be musically attractive or not! The 543 makes use of a very accurate, low noise, low distortion V.C.A. having, essentially, no signature of its own.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA part of the audio signal is rectified and smoothed to produce a suitable control voltage for the V.C.A. which has to respond very quickly and have low distortion. If the response is too fast, low frequency signals will themselves, be gain controlled! If the response is too slow, the signal will overshoot and the first few cycles will not get compressed. The speed and accuracy of the response, known as the \"attack\", and the time frame that gain remains under the initial control, known as \"release\" or \"recovery\" and plays a large part in the way a compressor sounds.\u003cbr\u003eFeed-Forward or Feed-Back?\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe 543 also has the ability to switch between feed-forward and feed-back modes. If the V.C.A. Control voltage is taken from the 543 output, (i.e. after the V.C.A.) it cannot act immediately on the V.C.A. because it has already been modified by settings of the V.C.A. and circuits through which it has passed. This is known as a \"Feed-Back\" compressor. The two compression characteristics are quite different; there is more \"Overshoot\" and both the attack and recovery ramps are changed, providing the user with powerful choices.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn most of Mr. Rupert Neve earliest designs, feed-back detection controlling the VCA with a rectified voltage from the unit output was intrinsic to the musical dynamic response. However, the very nature of a feedback compressor limits the attack time of the compression circuit. To offer faster, more technically accurate response times, feed-forward detection was implemented on Mr. Rupert Neve’s more modern designs. With the FF \/ FB switch, both classic and modern VCA responses are available.\u003cbr\u003eRMS or Peak?\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOne of the more unique features of the 543 is the new Peak \/ RMS mode also found in the Portico II Channel. This switch allows the VCA (voltage control amplifier) to respond to both RMS (Root Mean Square) and peak levels. RMS circuits are considered to better mimic the way the ears perceive apparent loudness, while peak circuits tend to directly respond to the waveform voltage which may be more of a concern for prevention of clipping and maximizing levels. In this case, peak mode uses a combination of both methods to get the best of both worlds, and avoids the drawbacks of each method on its own.\u003cbr\u003eRatio and Threshold\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAbove a given \"THRESHOLD\" signals are reduced by an adjustable amount ranging from 1:1, (which is linear, or no reduction at all), to more than 40:1 which is a very high ratio, equivalent to that of a Limiter. RATIO is sometimes referred to as \"Slope\" because when depicted on a graph, the slope of the graph representing Output versus Input, is what changes.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eRatio and Threshold are closely inter-dependent. If a RATIO as high as 40:1 has been set, then if the THRESHOLD is set at 0 dBu, even when a massive signal of +40 dBu (unlikely!) is presented to the input, the output signal will only be +1 dBu. RATIOS as high as this would normally be set somewhere above 0 dBu – say at +14 dBu, in order to prevent the output signal level exceeding just over +14 dBu to protect, for example, a digital recorder. Similarly, if a RATIO of 5:1 has been set, an input signal which is 10dB above THRESHOLD will only rise by 2dB above that THRESHOLD at the output.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTHRESHOLD control covers the Range from below -30dB to +22dBu. When THRESHOLD set at a low level, with a fairly high RATIO the amount of gain reduction will be considerable and it may be necessary to use some GAIN after the compressor to restore the apparent signal level.\u003cbr\u003eAttack Time\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe ATTACK time is the time taken for the compression circuits to start compressing. A long ATTACK time allows short duration peaks to \"escape\" and go through uncompressed. This may cause overload on subsequent digital circuits. A very short attack time sounds un-natural and robs the signal of \"life\" by removing transients. Some transients are extremely fast and have little effect on the sound quality. Setting a long attack time often means that almost no gain reduction occurs because the transient is history (!) before compression has had time to operate. However, even the fastest circuits take time to operate which means that there is always some \"Overshoot\". Small amounts of \"Overshoot\" are musically desirable – there are exceptions, of course.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSetting the right values of RELEASE and ATTACK is what compression is all about! Once the principles are understood a Compressor-Limiter such as the 543 provides a powerful tool that actually appears to enhance the dynamic range of a recording and so provide greater musical enjoyment.\u003cbr\u003eRelease \/ Recovery\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe notes above explain how the 543 handles signals of constant amplitude such as pure tones. Real program signals, however, are continually changing in level. The way in which a compressor deals with actual program material depends upon the magnitude and duration of peaks in the program level.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIf the RELEASE TIME is set to be very short, a short duration signal will be compressed but the gain will return to normal very quickly, giving a fluctuating and un-natural sound known as \"Pumping\" when the background, or other signals, are forced up and down. The gain will also tend to follow the wave form of low frequency signals.

As saturation is increased, low frequency compensation is decreased, and at a drive level of 5 the soft clipper enters the circuit.

Delivering the powerful sound of these classic designs with enhanced flexibility for the modern age, the 535 is a dynamic tool equipped to make a statement on virtually any track. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTiming is Everything\u003cbr\u003eThe unified TIMING control is comprised of six selectable settings, carefully chosen for different applications – a major departure from the fixed attack of the 2254. FAST and MF settings are designed to help clamp down on more transient signals like drums, plucked string instruments and fast vocals. MED and MS have slightly slower attacks and releases which can allow more transients through while having a slightly longer recovery. Lastly, SLOW and AUTO are both significantly slower, and are designed for smoother level control.\u003cbr\u003eFAST mode increases the speed of both attack and release for each setting, effectively doubling the number of time constants from 6 to 12. The FAST mode also allows for a dramatic increase in speed as compared to the 535’s renowned ancestors, providing significantly more tonal \u0026amp; operational versatility.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFaster TIMING settings will generally lead to higher peak-to-peak control voltage ripple, and therefore induce more harmonic content, translating into more color in the main audio path. Slower TIMING settings will smooth the control voltage significantly, and thereby reduce the harmonic content added to the audio path, resulting in more transparent compression. It is also worth noting that due to the nature of this topology, these time constants adapt themselves slightly depending on several factors: compression ratio, threshold, and source material. This dynamically generated timing shift and harmonic content is what gives the Diode Bridge Compressor its unique personality.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe Right Blend\u003cbr\u003eGiven the naturally colored sonic signature of the 535’s diode bridge, this built-in parallel compression ability is especially useful. The BLEND control allows the user to inject smaller amounts of extreme compression into an otherwise unaffected signal, creating an enhanced yet natural sound that maintains dynamic range with blendable color and punch.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTake Control\u003cbr\u003eIn addition to the TIMING control, the diode bridge compressor can be further manipulated by the RATIO, THRESHOLD, GAIN, SC HPF and LINK controls. The RATIO control has six selectable positions on the rotary switch and allows the user to set the slope of the compressor curve, with pre-selected ratios of 1.5:1 through 8:1. The THRESHOLD control has 31 detents and allows the user to adjust the point at which compression begins, ranging from -25dBu to +20dBu. The GAIN control has 31 detents to add make-up gain ranging from -6dB to +20dB. The S\/C HPF is 12dB\/octave sidechain high-pass filter with a frequency set to 150Hz. This feature can be immensely useful for making the compressor respond less to the powerful – and often more sustaining – low frequencies in a mix or instrument, which may otherwise give the compressor a more “mushy” response. LINK is designed to utilize the 500-series link buss built into many 500 series racks like the R6 or R10 (check your rack’s manual for details). When both units have link engaged and connected, the control voltage is shared between them – so when one unit is triggered, it will trigger the other unit equally. This can often help maintain a solid center image in a stereo source. Note: for stereo sources, it is always worth auditioning the “unlinked” sound as well, as linking can sometimes clamp down on the effective stereo width when the compressors are triggered by one side.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThreshold\u003cbr\u003eA 31-position detented pot that sets the level at which compression begins, from -25dB to +20dB. Turning this control counter-clockwise will increase the amount of compression; turning it clockwise will decrease the amount of compression.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eRatio\u003cbr\u003eThe RATIO control has six selectable positions on a rotary switch, allowing the user to set the slope of the compressor curve with pre-selected ratios of 1.5:1 through 8:1 for levels above the determined THRESHOLD. This range of compression ratios allows the user to compress as moderately or heavily as desired.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eTiming\u003cbr\u003eThe TIMING control is a six-position rotary switch that sets the compressor attack and release times. The timing can be further modified by the FAST button.\u003cbr\u003eFAST – Fast Attack (750us), Fast Release (130ms)\u003cbr\u003eMF – Medium Attack (2.25ms), Fast Release (130ms)\u003cbr\u003eMED – Medium Attack (2.25ms), Medium Release (400ms)\u003cbr\u003eMS – Medium Attack (4ms), Slow Release (725ms)\u003cbr\u003eSLOW – Slow Attack (10ms), Slow Release (1S)\u003cbr\u003eAUTO – Medium Attack (5ms), Dual Decay Release (T1 500ms, T2 1s)\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFast\u003cbr\u003eThe FAST switch divides the attack and release times available on the TIMING control in half, effectively doubling the number of TIMING presets available to the user.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBlend\u003cbr\u003eThe BLEND control has 31 detents and allows the user to mix the uncompressed (dry) signal with compressed (wet) signal. Turning the control towards 0% will shift the mix to fully uncompressed dry signal, whereas turning the control towards 100% will shift the mix to the fully compressed signal. This feature allows for parallel compression, enabling a wider range of compression subtlety.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eGain\u003cbr\u003eThe GAIN control has 31 detents and allows the user to add make-up gain to the compressed signal in order to bring its level back up to unity with the uncompressed input signal. It is much easier to evaluate the tonal effect of the compressor (via the COMP IN switch) when the compressed output level is matched to the uncompressed input level, thereby eliminating potentially misleading level differences.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eComp In\u003cbr\u003eThe COMP IN switch allows the user to audition the compression. By disengaging the COMP IN switch, the compressor is bypassed and the user can quickly compare the compressed sound to the dry input signal for an objective evaluation of the compressor’s sonic effect on the audio signal. COMP IN can be used in combination with the GAIN control to match the perceived level of the compressed audio signal with the level of the uncompressed input signal.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eLink\u003cbr\u003eThe LINK switch allows the compressor to be linked to another 535 compressor module via a sidechain control voltage. In link mode, the compressor generating the greater sidechain voltage (resulting in higher amounts of compression) will control the compression of both audio signal paths to maintain proper stereo center image while compressing. Note: it is advisable to always audition the unlinked sound as well, to decide if the benefit of a constant stereo center image is worth the potential trade-off of reduced left \/ right independence in the stereo field. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSidechain HPF\u003cbr\u003eThe S\/C HPF switch allows the user to insert a 12dB\/octave 150Hz high-pass filter in the compressor sidechain. When this filter is engaged, the compressor will be considerably less responsive to information below 150Hz. For example: if used on a drum kit, the low end of the kick drum would have less proportional effect on the compression than a snare drum or cymbals, since a significant portion of the kick drum’s dynamic energy is focused below 150Hz.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eLevel and Gain Reduction Metering\u003cbr\u003eThese two LED meters provide accurate representations of both the output level of the compressor and the amount of gain reduction being applied to the input signal.","published_at":"2017-10-26T03:41:54+02:00","created_at":"2017-10-26T03:50:24+02:00","vendor":"Rupert Neve Designs","type":"500 Series","tags":["500 Series","500 Series Dynamics","Price Range_$750 to $1000","Rupert Neve Designs","Shop by brand_Rupert Neve Designs","Shop by category_500 Series","Shop by category_500 Series Dynamics","Shop by category_Signal Processing \u0026 500 Series","Signal Processing \u0026 500 Series","Studio \u0026 Recording"],"price":99500,"price_min":99500,"price_max":99500,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":2623337594906,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"535","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Rupert Neve Designs 535 Diode Bridge Compressor","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":99500,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":1,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"752423657377"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-4-982x1024.jpg?v=1508982739","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-description-1.jpg?v=1508982739","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-right-angle-white-1-704x1024.jpg?v=1508982739","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-straight-1-542x1024.jpg?v=1508982739","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/r10-535-1-2-1024x626.jpg?v=1508982739","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-rack-1-1024x664.jpg?v=1508982739","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-3-1024x683.jpg?v=1508982739"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/535-4-982x1024.jpg?v=1508982739","options":["Title"],"content":"535\u003cbr\u003eDiode Bridge Compressor\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003ePunchy, thick and versatile, the 535 Diode Bridge Compressor captures the soul of Rupert Neve’s original 2254 compressor while providing modern updates including advanced timing control, significantly lower noise, fully stepped controls throughout, and internal parallel processing capabilities.

Mr. Rupert Neve’s original diode bridge compressors like the 2254 served as an inspiration for the design of the 535. By understanding the limitations of the original 2254 topology, painstaking effort was taken to reproduce the unique tone of the 2254 while improving the noise floor, expanding inflexible time constants, adding full wave sidechain detection for improved dynamic response, widening the range of threshold and ratio controls, and raising the headroom of the diode bridge itself.

The separate instrument amplifier includes 30dB of gain, a ground lift, variable phase and an instrument Thru connection.\u003cbr\u003eBlended Use\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eUsed as a single channel device for instruments, the 517 can be used to phase align, combine and compress direct and amplified signals. To achieve this, use the DI for the instrument’s direct signal and the mic preamp for the speaker cabinet signal. The blend control is used for mixing direct and amplified signals to achieve the desired tonal blend between the two sources, and the variphase is used to minimize or extenuate phase cancellations between the two signals. To compress the blended signal, the internal compressor jumper must be set to the blend path (this is the default setting). This technique could also be used to create a single, mixed output of a guitar and vocals.\u003cbr\u003eThe Compressor\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBased around a new LDR (light dependent resister) design, the 517’s opto-coupler compressor has been simplified to a single threshold control with auto make up gain. By default, the compressor is set to a fixed 2:1 ratio with fixed attack and release. To set the compressor, simply dial the threshold control down until the desired amount of compression is achieved. An LED light indicates when the compressor is active.\u003cbr\u003eVari-Phase\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn addition to the standard polarity reverse, the 517’s vari-phase control may be used to adjust phase incrementally. This control is useful any time two signals derived from the same source are combined.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor instance, even with careful placement, the combination of close miced drums and overheads, can often yield hollow-sounding results. By using the variable phase adjust, the direct signal can be phase rotated until the signals are naturally aligned.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThis technique is also extremely useful when combined with the internal blend control on instruments. A bassist or guitarist using both direct and mic’d signals can blend the two into a single output, using the variable phase to reach an optimal alignment. By adjusting the phase in the 517, the musician or engineer can find the absolute best mic position without regard to the phase relation to the direct signal.\u003cbr\u003eCompression\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor signals below the \"threshold\" level that has been set, a compressor provides a linear path allowing signals to be amplified without the gain being adjusted in any way. When signals exceed the \"threshold\" level, the gain is reduced in a controlled manner that depends on the Ratio that has been set.\u003cbr\u003eGain\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eGAIN range provided is from -6dB to +20 dB. As already noted, when compression has taken place, it may be necessary to increase the overall gain to restore the apparent program level\u003cbr\u003ePeak\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhen engaged, the 543 uses a combination of peak and RMS (average) detection to determine level. When disengaged, it follows just RMS.\u003cbr\u003eSC HPF\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIntroduces a HPF at 250Hz to the VCA side chain signal.

The separate instrument amplifier includes 30dB of gain, a ground lift, variable phase and an instrument Thru connection.\u003cbr\u003eBlended Use\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eUsed as a single channel device for instruments, the 517 can be used to phase align, combine and compress direct and amplified signals. To achieve this, use the DI for the instrument’s direct signal and the mic preamp for the speaker cabinet signal. The blend control is used for mixing direct and amplified signals to achieve the desired tonal blend between the two sources, and the variphase is used to minimize or extenuate phase cancellations between the two signals. To compress the blended signal, the internal compressor jumper must be set to the blend path (this is the default setting). This technique could also be used to create a single, mixed output of a guitar and vocals.\u003cbr\u003eThe Compressor\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBased around a new LDR (light dependent resister) design, the 517’s opto-coupler compressor has been simplified to a single threshold control with auto make up gain. By default, the compressor is set to a fixed 2:1 ratio with fixed attack and release. To set the compressor, simply dial the threshold control down until the desired amount of compression is achieved. An LED light indicates when the compressor is active.\u003cbr\u003eVari-Phase\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn addition to the standard polarity reverse, the 517’s vari-phase control may be used to adjust phase incrementally. This control is useful any time two signals derived from the same source are combined.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor instance, even with careful placement, the combination of close miced drums and overheads, can often yield hollow-sounding results. By using the variable phase adjust, the direct signal can be phase rotated until the signals are naturally aligned.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThis technique is also extremely useful when combined with the internal blend control on instruments. A bassist or guitarist using both direct and mic’d signals can blend the two into a single output, using the variable phase to reach an optimal alignment. By adjusting the phase in the 517, the musician or engineer can find the absolute best mic position without regard to the phase relation to the direct signal.\u003cbr\u003eCompression\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor signals below the \"threshold\" level that has been set, a compressor provides a linear path allowing signals to be amplified without the gain being adjusted in any way. When signals exceed the \"threshold\" level, the gain is reduced in a controlled manner that depends on the Ratio that has been set.\u003cbr\u003eGain\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eGAIN range provided is from -6dB to +20 dB.

Incorporating the 517’s powerful preamp, the 5012’s universally useful sweepable high pass filter, and the transformer-saturating power of a variable silk circuit derived from our flagship Portico II Channel, the 511 is a Rupert Neve-designed micpre for the masses.\u003cbr\u003eDesigned for 500 Series by Mr. Rupert Neve\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eRupert Neve: \"While creating functional 500 series modules is relatively simple, designing those modules to equal their non-500 series counterparts with the current, voltage and space restraints is quite challenging. In creating our own 500-Series Modules, we experimented with a number of different transformer and circuit designs to achieve the same presence and sweetness found in the Portico Series of modules. The result of these efforts is that outside of the slightly lowered headroom, our 500 series modules are nearly indistinguishable from standard Portico Series modules, and are perfectly suited for studios of the highest caliber.\"\u003cbr\u003eInput Section\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eInput signals may be derived from Mic or Line sources (make sure 48V is off for line sources!). The input has a 10K Ω non-reactive input resistance that handles a full 22dBu signal without the need for a pad. The pre-amp is a TLA non-reactive design that precludes the loading of microphones with limited driving capability. A primary gain control provides 66dB of gain in 6dB increments for easy recall, with a +\/- 6dB trim for fine adjustment. For condenser microphones and powered DIs, there is +48V phantom power. A transient-optimized HPF continuously covering the range from 20-250Hz is included to tame rumble and proximity effect.\u003cbr\u003eTexture\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOne of the key developments in the 511 is the Red Silk \/ Texture control from the Portico II Channel. Building on the \"Silk\" mode found in the Portico Series mic pre-amplifiers, Texture is designed to adjust the actual amount of harmonic music content from the source material, in effect, providing wide range of tonal options for the preamplifier. Like the original Portico Silk, the Silk Red \/ Texture works by reducing negative feedback on the output transformer and adjusting the frequency response to more closely resemble Mr. Rupert Neve’s vintage designs. With the 511, the Texture control allows these techniques to be pushed further than previous designs, adding about 10 times the desirable THD of the original silk control at its maximum setting.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWith that said, we have taken great care to ensure that the musical integrity of source material itself will not be compromised by these harmonic controls (these are not to be confused with controls from other manufactures that may \"incinerate\", \"demolish\" or \"destroy\" source material), and we believe they can be confidently utilized to fit the personality of any song, instrument or engineer.\u003cbr\u003eLow Noise, Low Distortion Operation\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMuch care was given in designing the 511 to produce as little noise and non-harmonic distortion as possible. Carefully implemented signal paths and Class A operation are a large part of the 511’s sweet, whisper quiet performance. For more information, go to Mr. Rupert Neve’s Design Notes.\u003cbr\u003eWhy Transformers?\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA complete discussion on transformers is out of place at this point, but it is helpful to review some of the essentials where it will be seen that a design needs to be viewed as a whole, not simply from the point of view of a single component.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe fine subtleties of circuit design relating to sonic performance are gradually becoming more clearly understood. For example, research has shown conclusively that frequencies above 20 kHz affect the way in which humans perceive sound quality. But, long before scientific evidence emerged a substantial body of musicians and engineers knew that equipment with apparently the same technical measurements could sound very different.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIncredibly small amounts of musically dissonant odd harmonics have a disastrous effect on the sound quality. Extraneous noise or interference that finds its way into a signal path seriously impairs performance of the whole chain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMany control rooms make use of outboard gear that is not well protected from external signals. Poor grounding of such equipment can be a serious problem. \"Electronically balanced\" circuits much used in modern equipment, can give very good measurements on the test bench but they do not provide adequate rejection of the stray fields found in every working environment.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eInput and output circuits must be freed from ground dependence so that only the \"wanted\" signal enters and leaves the processing path. Transformers are the ideal solution. The sweet and silky sound of my classic old favorite consoles was achieved with big transistors and large high quality transformers. Rupert Neve Designs Portico modules achieve similar quality today without the bulk or the cost.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn order that modules can work together as would be expected (i.e. in a proprietary console configuration) without producing hum, R.F. interference, or other interactions, the connecting interfaces, grounding, levels and impedances must receive careful attention. Each of our Portico and 500-Series modules is a complete integral signal processor that delivers its specified performance independently. This is one of the reasons we use transformers.","published_at":"2016-11-12T18:33:00+02:00","created_at":"2016-11-12T18:38:30+02:00","vendor":"Rupert Neve Designs","type":"500 Series","tags":["500 Series Preamps","500 Series Processors","Price Range_$500 to $750","Rupert Neve Designs","Shop by brand_Rupert Neve Designs","Shop by category_500 Series","Shop by category_500 Series Preamps","Shop by category_Preamps","Studio \u0026 Recording"],"price":54500,"price_min":54500,"price_max":54500,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":64900,"compare_at_price_min":64900,"compare_at_price_max":64900,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":28462181581,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"511","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Rupert Neve Designs 511 Mic Pre","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":54500,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":64900,"inventory_quantity":1,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"752423656950"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/511-slight-angle-cut-no-r-799x1024.jpg?v=1479058255","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/511-description-1024x667.jpg?v=1479058313","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/hands-2-929x1024.jpg?v=1479058353","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/basket-1024x699.jpg?v=1479058390","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/511-slight-angle-578x1024.jpg?v=1479058410","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/511-straight-752x1024.jpg?v=1479058444","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/1899834_10152491715626940_6890927119766271362_o-1024x683_0ca629ad-ce4a-4603-9e02-aec460c38db4.jpg?v=1479058476","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/511-web-new-1024x383.jpg?v=1479058513"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0292\/6125\/products\/511-slight-angle-cut-no-r-799x1024.jpg?v=1479058255","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003cbr\u003e511 - Rupert Neve Mic Pre with Texture for the 500 Series\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWith a big, bold preamp and the flexibility of variable Silk\/Texture, Rupert Neve designed the 511 to combine classic sonics with 500-series value.

A transient-optimized HPF continuously covering the range from 20-250Hz is included to tame rumble and proximity effect.\u003cbr\u003eTexture\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eOne of the key developments in the 511 is the Red Silk \/ Texture control from the Portico II Channel. Building on the \"Silk\" mode found in the Portico Series mic pre-amplifiers, Texture is designed to adjust the actual amount of harmonic music content from the source material, in effect, providing wide range of tonal options for the preamplifier. Like the original Portico Silk, the Silk Red \/ Texture works by reducing negative feedback on the output transformer and adjusting the frequency response to more closely resemble Mr. Rupert Neve’s vintage designs. With the 511, the Texture control allows these techniques to be pushed further than previous designs, adding about 10 times the desirable THD of the original silk control at its maximum setting.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWith that said, we have taken great care to ensure that the musical integrity of source material itself will not be compromised by these harmonic controls (these are not to be confused with controls from other manufactures that may \"incinerate\", \"demolish\" or \"destroy\" source material), and we believe they can be confidently utilized to fit the personality of any song, instrument or engineer.\u003cbr\u003eLow Noise, Low Distortion Operation\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMuch care was given in designing the 511 to produce as little noise and non-harmonic distortion as possible. Carefully implemented signal paths and Class A operation are a large part of the 511’s sweet, whisper quiet performance. For more information, go to Mr. Rupert Neve’s Design Notes.\u003cbr\u003eWhy Transformers?\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eA complete discussion on transformers is out of place at this point, but it is helpful to review some of the essentials where it will be seen that a design needs to be viewed as a whole, not simply from the point of view of a single component.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe fine subtleties of circuit design relating to sonic performance are gradually becoming more clearly understood. For example, research has shown conclusively that frequencies above 20 kHz affect the way in which humans perceive sound quality. But, long before scientific evidence emerged a substantial body of musicians and engineers knew that equipment with apparently the same technical measurements could sound very different.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIncredibly small amounts of musically dissonant odd harmonics have a disastrous effect on the sound quality. Extraneous noise or interference that finds its way into a signal path seriously impairs performance of the whole chain.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMany control rooms make use of outboard gear that is not well protected from external signals. Poor grounding of such equipment can be a serious problem. \"Electronically balanced\" circuits much used in modern equipment, can give very good measurements on the test bench but they do not provide adequate rejection of the stray fields found in every working environment.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eInput and output circuits must be freed from ground dependence so that only the \"wanted\" signal enters and leaves the processing path. Transformers are the ideal solution. The sweet and silky sound of my classic old favorite consoles was achieved with big transistors and large high quality transformers. Rupert Neve Designs Portico modules achieve similar quality today without the bulk or the cost.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn order that modules can work together as would be expected (i.e. in a proprietary console configuration) without producing hum, R.F. interference, or other interactions, the connecting interfaces, grounding, levels and impedances must receive careful attention. Each of our Portico and 500-Series modules is a complete integral signal processor that delivers its specified performance independently. This is one of the reasons we use transformers."}
