Rupert Neve Designs Master Bus Converter:

Dual Path A-D Converter & Limiter

The Master Bus Converter from Rupert Neve Designs sets a new bar in digital signal conversion. Designed for the discerning ear, it caters to a broad range of studio applications, including tracking, mixing, and mastering. This piece of gear stands out for its dual-path analog drive circuitry, allowing audio to be fed through either a class-A transformerless path for unmatched transparency or through custom interstage audio transformers with adjustable Silk for a rich range of tonal enhancements. Combined with a highly musical limiter, the Master Bus Converter ensures your analog signals are digitized with extraordinary three-dimensional accuracy.

Key Features:

  • Dual Path Analog Drive: Offers class-A transformerless path for clarity and transformers with Silk circuitry for tonal enhancement.
  • Silk Red and Blue Textures: Fine-tune harmonic content and saturation characteristics.
  • Compound Active Release Analog Limiter: Provides both musical sculpting and transparent level control.
  • Side Chain HPF: Adjustable from 20Hz to 250Hz for tailored limiting response.
  • 24-bit/192kHz Conversion: Ensures detailed, accurate digital representation of analog signals.
  • Flexible Connectivity: AES, S/PDIF, and TOSLINK outputs, with precise clocking functionalities.
