Rupert Neve Designs has announced RNDI and R6, two new products to be presented at the upcoming Winter NAMM show.
New for the 2015 Winter NAMM Show, Rupert Neve Designs is proud to announce two new products: the RNDI Active Transformer Direct Interface, and the R6 Six Space 500 Series Rack.
The RNDI utilizes a custom Rupert Neve-designed transformer and a class-A biased discrete FET amplifier to elegantly balance an instrument signal – whether straight from a bass guitar or a screaming 1000W amp – with sonics extending beyond 100kHz, superb phase coherence, and the famous Rupert Neve tone heard across 50+ years of classic records.
The R6 is a rack made for serious sound. With more than 150% the required current and a full complement of XLR, TRS and DB-25 I/O, the R6 helps your best modules realize their fullest potential.
The RNDI and R6 will be available late January 2015, priced at MSRP of $299 USD and $599 USD, respectively.

DDMF has updated the 6144 EQ effect plug-in to version 1.1.
Due to popular request, the Neve-modelled equalizer 6144 has now slightly left the path of a religious copy of the Portico 5033: a lowcut and a highcut filter have been added, to make it even more usable as an everyday tracking EQ.
The controls for these new filters have been integrated into the shelving controls, so that the GUI hardly had to change. A few minor bugs were adressed as well.
The 6144 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $29 USD.

DDMF 6144 EQ
With its three peaking filters with special gain-Q-interaction, custom-made high- and low shelf filters plus just the right amount of high harmonic generation, this new plugin comes at just a fraction of the price of the hardware version, namely $29.
The 6144 equalizer is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) . A free demo is available as well, with occasional noise interruptions.

Steinberg has announced it is now shipping the Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5033 EQ and 5043 compressor, two pro-audio VST/AU signal processing plug-ins, unveiled at this year’s NAMM show.
Thanks to Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, the hardware of Rupert Neve Designs has now been successfully emulated in the digital domain.
“At Yamaha and K’s LAB, we apply very strict circuitry modeling if required. This way we can choose how to emulate the sound and tonality of each hardware unit accordingly,” comments Toshifumi Kunimoto, general manager of the Corporate Research & Development Center at Yamaha Corp. “We invest lengths of time to obtain the right sound.”
The RND Portico 5033 five-band equalizer comes with three bands of fully parametric filters, each with dedicated gain, center-frequency, and Q controls as well as one band each of high and low-shelving filters. A global bypass switch and trim control are also available.
The RND Portico 5043 compressor features threshold, ratio, attack, release and gain controls for intricate signal compression. The feed-forward or feed-back compression mode allow users to switch between an aggressive and subtle compression response.
The Rupert Neve Designs Portico plug-ins are available to purchase for €499 EUR/£422 GBP each, a bundle of both is €799 EUR/£677 GBP. A 30-day trial version is available as free download from the Steinberg website.
