Rupert Neve Designs 511 Mic Preamp


Are you tired of sacrificing sound quality? Look no further than the Rupert Neve Designs 511 Mic Preamp. This single-channel microphone preamplifier packs all the sought-after features and usability of a larger outboard rack unit into a compact 500-series format, without compromising on sound quality.

The 511 boasts the signature Silk button, which adds harmonics to your signal and provides a characteristically vintage tone reminiscent of Rupert Neve's early designs. But the 511 is not limited to just microphone preamplification. Set the gain knob at 0dB and it becomes an exceptional line-level signal processor.

With the 511, you can power condenser mics and active DI boxes via Phantom Power, easily activated with the push of a button. And when it comes to processing, the 511 offers a variable high-pass filter that sweeps between 20-250 Hz, ensuring your recordings are free of unwanted low-frequency noise. Plus, the eight-segment LED meter allows for easy and effective monitoring of your output.

The 511's preamp circuitry is derived from the acclaimed 517 preamp, while the sweepable highpass filter circuit comes from the 5012 preamplifier. And to top it all off, the versatile tone shaping provided by the Silk/Texture circuit (from the Portico II channel strip) ensures that this preamp is perfect for any project.

The Rupert Neve Designs 511 Mic Preamp is the ultimate tool for any audio engineer or producer who demands exceptional sound quality and versatility in a compact form factor. Upgrade your sound today and experience the magic of Rupert Neve's legendary designs with the 511.
