Overview

Neve® Classic Console Plug-In Bundle

The EQ and Dynamics from Neve's Flagship Analogue Console, Paired with the Legendary Neve Stereo Buss Compressor. 

With the Neve® Classic Console Bundle, two major elements of classic Neve sound are within easy reach of anyone recording on Mac and PC. For those unacquainted, Neve England has been regarded as one of the most respected names in audio recording equipment for 40 years, among veterans of both the music and film industries. Universal Audio is proud to offer the most accurate — and notably, the only fully licensed and endorsed — software emulations of some of Neve’s most revered hardware products. 

Neve 88RS

Neve® 88RS Channel Strip Plug-In

In 2001, Neve launched the 88 Series: a new, large-format analog console that represented the best of all Neve designs that came before it. Considered by many professionals to be the ultimate analog console, the 88R's open, musical sound and powerful dynamics features place it among the best-sounding audio consoles in history, at any price. Learn why legendary studios including Ocean Way, Abbey Road, AIR, The Village, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Skywalker Sound choose the 88 Series with Universal Audio's painstakingly emulated 88RS Channel Strip plug-in.

Neve 33609

Neve® 33609 / 33609SE Compressor Plug-In

Derived from the original Neve 2254 compressor, circa 1969, the 33609 stereo buss compressor/limiter utilizes a bridged-diode gain reduction circuit and many custom transformers for a uniquely "colourful" sound. The UAD Neve 33609 is the only Neve-sanctioned software recreation of the Neve 33609 (rev C). Every detail of the original unit is captured, to match the sonic results and musicality of its hardware counterpart with absolute precision. Essential for buss processing, drum groups, and even full mixes, the 33609 plug-in includes a DSP-optimized 33609SE which allows for higher instance counts.

Requires a UAD DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide and the latest version of the UAD Powered Plug-In Software (available here).

    This is a first.
    by K. Abildgaard(Thursday 16 April, 2015)

    I am usually no fan of channel strips but this one has taken me by surprise. There is something unexplainable about what it does to sound even when just passing through. I sometimes think it may be placebo, but I swear I can hear something nice and subtle going on. I use it on a lot of… Read More

    It's given a push by channel strip!
    by ヒ. ナカムラ(Wednesday 15 April, 2015)

    When recording, it's the best plug-in which should be inserted. A compressor isn't a just accessory! To have the wonderful effect, when recording with EQ, when you can insert yourself, the pleasure increases at the time of MIX! Read More

    88RS review.
    by O. Dawson(Sunday 12 April, 2015)

    Thanks guys - Has a soft tone and works well as an alternative to the API or SSL channel strips. Only fallback is that the controls aren't easy to use - small and fiddly. Once you've got the hang of them, all good. Thanks. Read More

    Ridiculous
    by L. Horton(Friday 27 March, 2015)

    You will not find a channel strip plugin even close to as good as this one. If you do, break down my door in the middle of the night and play a massive kick drum through it to show me. Read More
