Neve® 1073® Preamp & EQ Collection
Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection
Brings the heft.
Used this recently on some lightly distorted big chord hot guitars.and it sat right in the mix with the guitars I used the API channel strip on.
A great compliment to the API that added weight, depth and heft to those punctuating chords without stepping on the API sonic footprint.
Also used this on a bottom snare mic track and brought out a nice, fat tuneful body in the snare that blended great with the battery mics cracked.
Own the hardware - can't tell the difference
I broke my bank account a few years ago and purchased an AMS Neve 1073 preamplifier hardware unit - it's gorgeous and is as sonically stunning on every source as one can imagine. Even more mind-blowing is that this plugin is just as good - it sounds so so spot on to the hardware, that I cannot tell the difference at all. I don't know how UAD manages to capture these hardware sonic signatures, but they do an exquisite job. Thanks to all involved - and, of course, to Sir Rupert Neve who created this work of art for us all to use and enjoy.
This is how I start my day
On every track
Closest Plugin Emulation
Sounds good on anything, it adds that richness to vocals that you're looking for and hearing in mainstream songs. I'd definitely recommend it.

Worthy of his fame
Practical and intuitive. Provides subtle coloration in vintage-style recording.

As is my approach to things in general when I’m making records, I’ll say this in closing: Does this sound EXACTLY LIKE a vintage Neve 1073? I don’t know. Maybe…But I can say that it sounds awesome, and to be honest, that’s all I (and you) should care about.
I won’t lie I haven’t spent that much time with it but what I have done so far it hold up to the real thing the eq bring it alive and if you like that vintage “warm sound” you can push it but it also does nice clean modern tones as well. It hard to see much wrong with this. It does what it’s suppose to do.

Good to get out of surgical mindset
Lots of character in this little plugin, took me a while but I can tell why it's a staple immediately. Love how heavy handed I can be with it.
Nice sounding . A must have for vocals
Great with tube mic. Gonna use it a lot! Demoed few times and now I bought it.
Best 1073 you'll find
This Neve 1073 emulation is absolutely amazing! It is my go to preamp and the best digital version of it you will find!
It Gets the Job Done Instantly
Just Apply Tweak & Go!!!
i love this product
Great sound, totally worth it. Nice deal on sale too.
I love this plugin and it is one of the main reasons I was interested in the UAD system. Only preamp I will really need from now on. Easily replaced hardware too.
the classic now runs natively
Great option the UAD X extension gives you additional native resource.
Neve 1073 plugin gives a subtle but recognizable sound character of hardware units. Of course the "bite" of a good 1073 channel strip cannot be substituted by the plugin, but for mixing solutions, it seems to be perfect, and if you want more character, just duplicate it.
Just add life to Everything
Amazing pre, used on acoustic guitars, vocals and bass. It sound fantastic..
Had a hardware clone but this guys made a great job!
Warm, analog sound
UA plug-ins aren’t cheap, but surely are the best you can find without spending a small fortune on vintage hardware.
