Rupert Neve Designs 5024 Quad Mic Pre

$3,499.00

Four channels of legendary front-end tone.

Incorporating four channels of renowned preamplification, independent Silk controls, two channels of DI inputs, and an M-S Decoder into a 1U enclosure, the 5024 is a workhorse equipped to enhance the front end performance of any digital or analog recording system.
In addition to 72dB of gain, the 5024’s mic preamps include individually selectable phase, mute, phantom power, a selectable frequency high pass filter, custom transformers, and the Silk circuit which yields the rich warmth and presence of the renowned classic designs.

What is Silk?

One of the key features of the 5024 is the Silk circuit, which adds a specified amount of musical, pleasing harmonic saturation to the unit’s output stage. So how does it work? By reducing negative feedback across the output transformer and adjusting this feedback’s frequency response, engaging the Silk switch provides the sweet, musical saturation found in Rupert’s legendary vintage designs.

Features

MIC GAIN
A 12-way precision rotary switch controls gain from 0 to 66 dB in 6 dB steps.
TRIM
Continuously variable +/-6 dB level control.
PHANTOM POWER
Provides 48V phantom power to microphones.
POLARITY
Reverses the polarity of the input signal.
MUTE
Mutes the output signal.
SILK / TEXTURE
Pushing the Silk button engages the Silk circuit, which reduces the negative feedback on the output transformer, adding harmonic content and accentuating the saturation in the mid and high frequencies – similar to the effect of Silk Red on the Shelford Channel and other RND units. With Silk engaged, the distortion characteristic and harmonic content of the unit are very reminiscent of many of Rupert’s vintage class-A designs.
LED METERS
8-segment LED peak meters showing signal level on each channel.
HPF
Engages the high-pass filter circuitry.
30Hz / 90Hz
Selects between 30Hz and 90Hz for the high-pass filter frequency.
GROUND LIFT (Ch 1 & 2 only)
Lifts the ground connection on the DI input.
THRU (Ch 1 & 2 only)
Parallel THRU output for use with an external amplifier.
DI (Ch 1 & 2 only)
Transformer-isolated high-Z direct injection input.
M/S (Ch 3 & 4 only)
Changes channels 3 & 4 from independent to Mid (Ch3) and Side (Ch4)
