I am big fan of Rupert Neves stuff, and the Portico Series 5014 widener did not disappoint. Great attention to detail in this box!
The unit had a bad cap in the switchmode power supply filter.
My hero is gone...
Hadn't written anything for while, but the pause came to an end today. Wrote this song quite quickly - sometimes breaks are good to clear the mind. Feedback most welcome:

First through the slime, you must crawl
Hey yall. Im trying to narrow down what makes sense for a channel strip for general purpose usage. Vocals, voice over, acoustic and electric guitar, and ambient mic.
The neve 1073 pre/eq and the focusrite isa 2 with the trident 80b 500 series eq, both have my interest. They are similarly priced, with the isa/80b being a stereo setup, neve would be mono.
Not sure if this is old news or not, but it was new to me today and I figured I’d share. Very cool concept.
I borrowed a portico 5012. intend to use it on el-bass, but it has no jack hi-z in. So, what is the best way to connect the bass to it... I have a BSS-133. could it be used, and how would the setup be to tje ua apollo interfave. A mic or line signal?
This is pretty humorous. (The video not the product).
The authentic Neve preamp sound – captured as a plug-in featuring Unison™ technology.
The Neve 1073 Channel Amplifier is easily the most revered preamp and EQ circuit ever designed. Introduced in 1970, this hallowed class-A, transistor mic/line amp with EQ epitomizes the beautiful "Neve sound," with unparalleled clarity, sheen, and bite.
A few years old, but a very cool interview all the same.
The subject of this very short interview is centered around the 1973 Neve 8028 console that he purchased from Sound City, when the famous studio finally shut the lights off for good in 2011.
His own history, how he got into audio, as well as having his mind changed about digital audio and Virtual Circuit Modeling (VCM), working with software designer Dr. K (Toshifumi Kunimoto), and the Portico Virtual plugs from Steinberg.
An interesting view of one of the major players - and game changers - in our craft.
We bought couple of years ago this amazing analog console.
Will be great to know what everyone of you think about analog console and if some one of you have ever tried this console.
Thanx for supporting us.
