Neve® 31102 / 31102SE Classic Console EQ
Iconic 3-Band active EQ from
a legendary Neve console.
Originally featured in the Neve 8068 console, the 31102 EQ was used to mix one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite For Destruction. With its distinct filter shaping and familiar Neve sheen and bite, the 31102’s three-band active EQ offers enhanced tone-shaping possibilities and simple workflow that sits squarely between its legendary cousins, the 1073 and the 1081.
The Neve 31102 Classic Console EQ plug-ins for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a thorough emulation of this powerful, distinct sounding EQ. By modeling the original hardware’s filter response curves to exacting detail, as well as its Level Adjust gain control — with original 30 dB gain range — the 31102 Classic Console EQ plug-in delivers the same sonic experience as its analog cousin, with exacting detail.

Add dimension and personality to electric guitars
Open up treble frequencies with iconic Neve sheen — and zero harshness
Tighten up kick drums with classic Neve attitude

“The UAD Neve 31102 is my go-to drum EQ. There's no other plug-in that can give me as meaty of a kick drum sound!”
– Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers)

I thought that the Harrison 32 was my one and only superb EQ plug-in... and surely it is;
but this Neve 31102 Eq is really good sounding, sweet and with it's own character!
