Ten out of ten for this.
Simply sublime sound quality.
Basically a single channel of the revered 5088 console in a 2U rack.
Expensive.. yes, but quality like this is built to last a lifetime and will continue to serve when all your EQ, COMPRESSOR plug ins become obsolete.
A great investment for any studio, big or small.
Cons.. one is never enough!

Klasse Channelstrip!
Mosaik, 28.06.2017
Mit dem Portico 2 habe ich mir nun endgültig ein Flaggschiff nach Hause geholt! Macht zwar äußerlich nicht so viel her wie zum Beispiel ein Avalon, aber soundmäßig jeden Cent wert!
Meine Lieblingseinstellung des EQ während dem Vocal-Tracking ist übrigens ein Peak bei 150hz mit circa +2 db, eine kleine Absenkung rund um die 1000hz und ein Shelf ab 12.000hz, wo ich etwa 3db reindrehe.
Mein verwendetes Mikrofon ist das Neumann U87

Rolls Royce unter Channel Strips!
MaSz, 27.02.2011
Als alternative fuer Mixersound und andere Channel Strip's/Preamp's gedacht,entpupte sich der Portico II, als hervorragender Arbeitstier mit edlem Charakter, riesigem Headroom, sowie extrem gelungenem EQ-Compressor Paket,was im Verbund mit klasse Preamp, eine bombenstarke Mischung macht ! Jetzt verrichten 2 Egzemlare ihre Arbeit in meinem Studio, und sind ständig im Einsatz. Klare Empfehlung!
