PSE-545 Source Extractor - Neve Portico 545


  • PSE 是一个智能扩展处理器,看起来是基于 Neve 5045 的。使用 Neve 5045(或 Yamaha CL/QL 上的插件版本)或 Waves PSE 插件的操作者会知道这个处理器有多方便,WING 在每个通道的门槽中都有这个处理器,这是一个受欢迎的补充。这个处理器对 Lav 或耳机话筒特别有帮助,可以在反馈之前获得更多的增益。
  • 它的控制似乎与 Neve 相似,但时间控制要简单得多。在 Neve 上,你要设置阈值,这样当你的信号出现时,"活动灯" 就会亮起。时间设置似乎只是快或不快,这是它在信号源下降后激活的时间。深度设置设定了当你的信号源不存在时,会有多大程度的减弱。
  • The 545 Primary Source Enhancer is a 500-series format module that is designed to reduce ringing feedback, effectively providing the live sound engineer with more room to raise the level of a microphone on stage before feedback occurs. The controls are easy to use and understand, generally requiring minimum adjustment once properly set.
  • The 545 shares some similarities with conventional noise gates, including threshold and depth (range) control. However, the 545 sets itself apart from more traditional gates with it’s control over the dynamic envelope, resulting in a less audible transition between periods of attenuation.
  • The 545 is designed to accept line level signals such as the output of a microphone preamplifier, or the insert send from a console. The 545 output is also line level, which typically feeds the line input or insert return of a console. The 545 can easily interface between balanced and unbalanced inputs and outputs due to the 545’s transformercoupled input and output.
  • One major benefit of transformer coupling is galvanic isolation. An audio signal couples from a transformer’s primary winding to it’s secondary winding through manipulation of the magnetic flux within the transformer’s core. This magnetic isolation inherently prevents stray currents from flowing due to differences in ground potential, thereby eliminating ground loops that would typically manifest as hum in the audio path. The 545’s transformer-coupled output can drive balanced or unbalanced inputs without signal loss or degradation, while simultaneously imparting Rupert Neve’s renowned transformer harmonics to your signal path



  • LED indicates power status

ACTIVE(Process Active)

  • LED that illuminates when the input signal has overcome the enhancement threshold


  • Sets the dBu level where Primary Source Enhancement begins
  • Typically, the user will need to set the THRESHOLD control higher for louder sources. The Process ACTIVE LED should be used in tandem with the THRESHOLD control to find the correct setting. Generally, the ACTIVE LED should be illuminated when the artist is singing, and extinguished when the artist is quiet.


  • Controls the maximum amount of enhancement effect
  • The DEPTH pot controls how much attenuation is applied after the input signal falls below the set THRESHOLD. As the user rotates the DEPTH control clock-wise (CW) from 0dB towards -20dB, the 545 will attenuate the input signal more drastically.
  • It is important to utilize the DEPTH control to find the right balance between audibility of the Primary Source Enhancement effect and reduction of feedback. This can become particularly challenging with very dynamic sources, and may require some experimentation with the DEPTH control to find the best setting for a specific application.


  • Illuminated push-button that switches between two available time constants
  • When the FAST push-button is in the OUT position, the Primary Source Enhancer achieves a slower attack and release that is useful as a starting point for most sources.
  • Pressing the FAST push-button switch IN achieves a faster attack and release, which can be useful on more dynamic sources where faster transient detection is necessary.


  • Illuminated push-button that selects between RMS and Peak detection modes
  • When the PEAK push-button is in the OUT position, the 545 is in RMS mode. RMS mode triggers a more averaged response characteristic in the 545 sidechain that is slower than PEAK mode response.
  • When the PEAK push-button is illuminated in the IN position, the 545 is in PEAK mode. PEAK mode can be useful for detecting faster transient peaks in the source material thereby preventing these peaks from getting “chopped” off. In addition, PEAK mode can be used for more creative dynamic envelope shaping on musical instruments.
