My hero is gone...
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.
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.
Any one that tries this, please let us know what you think and why you are into hybird mixing and chose or are thinking about choosing this?
Thinking out loud and off the cuff.
My first impression from the literature is it looks really cool and I'm really glad to see this available! Its priced competitively too.
Well, not really emulation. Apparently there is a small loop of tape and an actual record and playback head in this thing. So, it's like a small tape saturator. Interesting. At first I thought "this is very cool". Then I thought, at $750 each I could probably by an actual 16 track ATR for the price of just a couple of these(ok, maybe three or four).

The B5043 BCompressorLimiter Duo is a new and powerful approach to dynamic processing! This new addition to the Portico range is designed with both tracking and mixing applications in mind.
TDB500 Series DIPreComp with VariphaseB
Based on the Portico 5017 Mobile Pre, the BRupert Neve Designs Portico 517B provides world class, transformer-coupled preamp, compressor and DI circuitry, with Vari-phase, Silk and DImic blending capabilities in a 500 series model. As the first 500 series module designed by Mr. Rupert Neve, the 517 incorporates outstanding sonic quality with an indispensable feature set.
I've read favorable reviews on these preamps, but wanted to see if anyone here has used them, and if so, what is your opinion?
Would it be better to get the Seventh Circle preamps, or the Neve's?
