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).

    Neve 88RS FTW!
    by A. Harrington(Friday 9 October, 2015)

    Before I took the Apollo plunge I had been using a decent hardware chain for vocals: A good condenser into a Capi VP 26 Preamp to a DBX Compressor/Gate then an Aphex Exciter (only slightly driven). I'd then EQ in the box after tracking the source. With some exceptions, I have largely… Read More
