Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection

The Only End-to-End Neve 1073 Circuit Emulation

The Only End-to-End Neve 1073 Circuit Emulation

Universal Audio’s all-new Neve 1073 plug-in for Apollo and UAD-2 provides all the features, unique circuit behaviors, and coveted sound of Neve's original hardware design. By modeling the dual-stage "Red Knob" preamp, revered three-band EQ, and post-fader output amplifier with obsessive detail, the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ replicates the experience of the original 1970s hardware with stunning accuracy. Like the hardware, the new Neve 1073 plug-in incorporates all 10 clipping points from the preamp and EQ circuitry, delivering trademark clarity, grit, and harmonically rich class‑A saturation.

Unison Technology for Apollo

Unison Technology for Apollo

Harnessing UA’s Unison technology, the Neve 1073 plug-in blurs the lines between analog and digital, giving you all of the 1073 preamp’s impedance, gain staging “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors that have made it legendary among the audio faithful. The secret is Unison’s bi-directional control and communication from the 1073 plug-in to the digitally controlled mic preamps in Apollo. With Unison, the Apollo preamp changes to the Neve 1073's physical input impedance, allowing both "Lo" (300 Ω) and "Hi" (1200 Ω) impedance setting options. This provides the 1073's full gain and tonal range to your favorite mics.

UAD-2 hardware owners can employ the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection for mixing, tone shaping, or simply adding sheen and bite to vocals, guitars, drums and more — without ever leaving the box. To get you started, there are artist presets from renowned 1073 users such as Ed Cherney, Joe Chiccarelli, Jacquire King, Ryan Hewitt, David Isaac, Ryan West, and more. UAD-2 power users can place Neve 1073 instances across multiple channels, turning their favorite DAW into a classic Neve console.

      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.
      Highly recommended!

      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.

      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.

      Very good!!!

      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.

      Classic !!!!

      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.

      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.

      Great option the UAD X extension gives you additional native resource.

      Authentic sound

      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.

      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.
