Rupert Neve Designs 535

The legacy of Rupert Neve's renowned diode bridge compressor designs lives on with the 535, a 500-series adaptation of a compression circuit developed for the Shelford Channel. With nearly 50 years of further design experience gained since the original diode bridge compressors were released, the 535 is a refined, modern take on a classic design with more dynamics and more control. And thanks to its 500-series form factor, this is a highly compact, flexible compressor that can find a place in nearly any studio.

Every control is stepped, making settings recall and comparison an easy matter. Six ratio settings are available from 1.5:1 up to 8:1, offering a range of mild to heavy compression at the turn of a dial. The 535 also features six fine-tuned attack and release settings, with an optional Fast switch to cut those times in half, effectively providing 12 different attack/release settings. With the inclusion of a sidechain highpass filter, blend control for easy parallel compression, and Link capability for stereo processing with another 535, this compressor packs quite the punch in terms of feature set. Whether building up your first 500-series rack or rounding out the compressor options in a tricked out studio, Rupert Neve's 535 provides the contemporary version of a legendary piece of studio equipment.
