Yamaha 5045 Rupert Neve 2 Channel analog Enhancer - no feedback

The Yamaha 5045 Primary Source Enhancer is a professionally designed two channel device that is created with exceptionally useful at feedback reduction, can increase effectively the level a microphone is capable to be raised before feedback occurs in a live sound environment by up to 20dB, without negatively impacting the sonic integrity of the source signal. The controls are made that are very simply laid out and generally require minimal adjustment, the 5045 is made as an invaluable tool for use in performance halls, churches, stadiums, or any venue where feedback is seems a problem.

Features

  • All Analog Design
    The 5045 is built around Rupert's custom transformers and doesn't introduce filtering and digital processing. The result of these analogue circuits is sonic performance that retains the integrity of the source material.
  • Simplified Controls
    With a minimal control set and little reason to change settings, the 5045's simplified use makes it ideal for environments without a full time engineer.
  • Depth
    Sets how much attenuation is applied after the signal falls below where the “Threshold” is set. “0” implies zero attenuation and the 5045 won’t effect the signal gain.
  • Threshold
    Sets the level at which the PSE engages
  • Time Constant
    Sets how quickly the attenuation occurs
  • RMS / Peak
    With the “RMS/PEAK” button pushed in, the 5045 tends to return to normal level from attenuation faster

The 5045 shares some traits with conventional “noise gates”, but operates with a different principle. One common aspect is that both reduce the gain during the absence of signal – or more specifically, both begin to attenuate when the level of a signal falls below a certain user-defined threshold. The 5045 senses when someone is speaking or singing into the mic and allows the signal to pass through, and senses when the person has stopped talking or singing and reduces the gain appropriately, which helps reduce the tendency of a system to feed back. Most importantly, the 5045 does not require filtering and digital processing to achieve significant benefits.
