Incorporating the pristine preamp circuitry from the 517, the universally useful sweepable high pass filter from the 5012, and the sweetness of the variable Silk circuit derived from our flagship Portico II Channel, the 511 is a workhorse for all your most important tracks. A 12-way precision rotary switch controls gain from 0 to 66 dB in 6 dB steps. Continuously variable +/-6 dB level control. Engages phantom power on the microphone input, as supplied by the 500 series rack.
Push button inverts the polarity of the signal path, and illuminates when engaged. The symbol Ø is often used to denote opposite polarity. The high pass filter is continuously variable from 20-250Hz and engaged by the HPF switch, which illuminates when engaged. It is a valuable aid in any signal chain, but particularly so in a microphone preamplifier. Red Silk accentuates the saturation in the mid and high frequencies, similar to that of the red silk mode on the Portico II Channel.By manipulating the Texture control, the amount of Silk can be changed from essentially absent, to roughly 10 times the amount of coloration / distortion found in Silk from the original Portico Series. With Silk / Texture engaged, the distortion characteristic and harmonic content of the unit are very reminiscent of many of Ruperts class-A vintage designs. An Eight-segment LED bar-graph meter displays output level (pre-Silk). The color range proceeds from green for lower level signals, yellow for intermediate signals, and red for high levels. When the 511 is clipped, the highest red LED will hold longer depending on how far above the clip threshold the signal was. This mint condition product includes the original packaging, manual, and all original accessories. These charges are the buyers responsibility.
