This stereo compressor takes the classic diode-bridge compressor of Neve's early days and updates elements of the power supply and signal path for the modern world. As such, it's supremely useful on vocals, drum busses, guitars, and sometimes, even the mix buss.\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e This is not a transparent compressor for subtle detailed work. Instead, unit offers a weighty, dense, and harmonically rich tone for adding saturation as well as dynamic control. Though the unit provides the characteristic grit and feel of the vintage classic, Neve took great care to improve the performance of this characterful compressor compared to previous models. The noise floor is lower, the time constants are more flexible, and the sidechain detection has been tweaked for a better dynamic response. You can really push a vocal, guitar, or bass to the front of the mix while adding just the right amount of saturation, and nothing more.\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e A unified TIMING control offers six selectable settings over the customary three found on vintage units. A blend knob allows for parallel compression without any additional patching. You'll also find controls over threshold, ratio, and the sidechain path, all useful for shaping the response to your needs.\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e On the rear of the unit, you'll find a balanced XLR I\/O path as well as a 1\/4\" TRS send\/return path for the sidechain. Use the external sidechain if you wish to feed the compressor with independently tweaked material. A wordwide power supply is built into the compressor with a power cord included.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"\"

Product Description

Get a classic vintage sound with better headroom and markedly improved control thanks to the Rupert Neve Designs 5254 Dual-Diode Bridge Compressor. This stereo compressor takes the classic diode-bridge compressor of Neve's early days and updates elements of the power supply and signal path for the modern world. As such, it's supremely useful on vocals, drum busses, guitars, and sometimes, even the mix buss.

This is not a transparent compressor for subtle detailed work. Instead, unit offers a weighty, dense, and harmonically rich tone for adding saturation as well as dynamic control. Though the unit provides the characteristic grit and feel of the vintage classic, Neve took great care to improve the performance of this characterful compressor compared to previous models. The noise floor is lower, the time constants are more flexible, and the sidechain detection has been tweaked for a better dynamic response. You can really push a vocal, guitar, or bass to the front of the mix while adding just the right amount of saturation, and nothing more.

A unified TIMING control offers six selectable settings over the customary three found on vintage units. A blend knob allows for parallel compression without any additional patching. You'll also find controls over threshold, ratio, and the sidechain path, all useful for shaping the response to your needs.

On the rear of the unit, you'll find a balanced XLR I/O path as well as a 1/4" TRS send/return path for the sidechain. Use the external sidechain if you wish to feed the compressor with independently tweaked material. A wordwide power supply is built into the compressor with a power cord included.

Classic Diode Bridge Tone

Capture the punchy, larger-than-life tone used on countless hit records for the last 50 years.

Advanced Timing Controls

Custom-shape your compression envelope with the unified timing control, which enables a much wider range of responses than vintage units or clones.

Custom Transformers and Class-A Line Amplifiers

Vintage warmth meets the improved headroom and precision of Rupert Neve's updated transformer-coupled line stages.

31-Position Detented Controls

Accurately recall and match your settings with precision and speed.

Built-In Parallel Compression

Internal blend control enables you to subtly dial in more dramatic compression settings for color as desired.

Full-Wave Sidechain Detection

Enhanced from the vintage unit's half-wave design, the updated sidechain detector provides substantially more accuracy.

Stereo Linking

Run your compressors in either dual-mono or stereo configurations.

Internal Universal Power Supply

EIC connection for worldwide AC power from 90-240V embedded in the 1 RU rack-mountable chassis.
