Running Drums through Rupert Neve MBP and 542 Tape Emulator

I started with a drum buss from a recent project, ran it through the Rupert Neve MBP, and then ran it through the new Rupert Neve 542 Tape Emulators (500-Series).

Audio Clips

  • Drum Buss Before Rupert Neve

  • Drum Buss After Rupert Neve MBP

    This is the same section ran through the Rupert Neve MBP. No other EQ or effects added. Settings on MBP were 2:1 Ratio, Peak limiting, Attack 50, Release .5, Limiter +24. Silk Off. SideChain 250 Hz engaged.

  • Drums After Rupert Neve MBP + 542 Tape Emulators

    This is the MBP clip above looped a second time through the 542's.
    Settings on both 542's were 0dB trim, Saturation knob at half-point, IPS at 30, Blend at 50%, Silk-Red at about 10 o' clock.


  • I love how the MBP evens out the hits and makes it punch more without feeling compressed or pumping, and the 542's fattened it up a bit more and gave the track some oomph in the low-end.  I notice it the most when listening to the 542 track for awhile and then going back to the others which sound thinner in comparison.
