■ Portico 5033
Portico 5033 is a processor that emulates a 5-band analog EQ made by Rupert Neve Designs (RND).
5033EQ inherits features from the 1073, designed by Rupert Neve and now regarded as a classic. It
provides distinctive tone control characteristics. The input/output transformers designed by Rupert
Neve himself are also modeled using VCM technology, giving this model a highly musical sound
even when in the bypassed state. The unique properties of this EQ are such that reducing the low-
frequency region tightens it, and boosting the high-frequency region will raise the desired frequency
band without fatiguing the ear.
ALL BYPASS button
Switches EQ bypass on/off. Even in the bypassed state, the signal passes through the input/
output transformer and amp circuit.
Adjusts the input gain of the effect.
LF/LMF/MF/HMF/HF frequency knobs
Adjust the frequency of each band.
LF/LMF/MF/HMF/HF gain knobs
Adjust the amount of boost or attenuation for each band.
LMF/MF/HMF Q knobs
Adjust the Q (steepness) of each band. Increasing the Q value will narrow the range whose
gain is controlled in that band.
LMF/MF/HMF IN buttons
Turn the EQ on/off for the LMF/MF/HMF bands respectively.
LF/HF IN buttons
Turn the EQ on/off for the LF and HF bands simultaneously.
Visually indicates the EQ response.
