    Excellent!

    by J. D. 5 out of 5 stars

    Fantastic Sounding! I Use it on everything I do. If you can not get a great sound using this plugin, you have other problems. My 15 year old son tracks guitars and later eqs with this plugin and I have 22 years of engineering records and I'm impressed with the tones he gets with very little experience. Buy this plugin. You won't regret it.

    Spectacular!!!

    by S. Hughes . 5 out of 5 stars

    I first looked at the classic 1073 eq model, the one everyone raves about, but thankfully I also tried the 1081 which is a much better, expanded, more capable version of the 1073 and so this is the one I went for. Even Mr Neve himself doesn't understand the fuss about the ancient 1073 and has expressed in interviews that he's created much better units since, and this is certainly one of them. If you can afford both, then why not, but if you only pick one, this 1081 delivers. I love it. It's great musical sounding eq that adds 'that' sound that you just can't seem to pull out using anything else.

    A must have, hands down.

    I already have the Neve 1073 EQ, and just added the 1081 EQ to my collection. This EQ is smoother and more flexible, works great on kick drums, bass, adding some sheen to vocals, and also for adding some weight to a snare drum. The filters are great, both the low pass and high are very useful. I should add that I have a Neve Portico 5033 EQ, a Rupert Neve designed Amek channel in a box, and have used the AMS Neve 8803 EQ. I must say that UAD really have nailed the Neve sound and characteristic when boosting the low, mid and highs, The 1073 12khz is amazing, as is the 100hz and 220hz combo boost of the 1081 EQ, these are great tools for ITB mixing and tone shaping.

    Ha.
    This is a lovely EQ. It works perfect on Drums. Easy to handle easy to understand.
    And despite its easyness, it can tweak a lot of winding curves. I did´nt believe it first.

    There is some influence of the bands. Turn one knob and it makes the other band sound slightly different. Forget that knowledge and technical perfecetness, you don´t need to know the exact db . I works fine, thats it.

    Therefore i accept the large CPU ammoth it uses in non SE version.
    The SE is good for all bands but not the high one.
    Ah and the bell knob don´t work on 16k hi setting, its for the believers.

    If you are a EQ idiot or idle, this is for you.
    If you are a gourmet , this one is for you, you can hear a 0.5db changing easily.
    If you make music, it´s defintively for you.

    Fantastic EQ

    by J. Broeckers . 5 out of 5 stars

    Dear Frinds,

    For me the best EQ I ever heared, he works perfectly for me. Big gratulations for the Team who designed this outstanding EQ.

    But not only the plugs are awsome,also the support by universal audio.

    I will tell what happend:

    I would like to purchase the 1073, but I did put the wrong plug and buy it...
    After authorization i can't believe what happend.. the wrong eq was activated !!!

    So i did use the support service and wrote him my big mistake.

    After a few Day's i got a new patch and the right eq was activated. Iam very luky for the help and a big thank you to the service team.

    Keep up the great work

    I don't normally write two reviews for a product, unless im really bored or i have sold it short somehow in my first review!
    Well it's a bit of both this evening.

    On my last review i pretty much left it by saying the Neve isn't suitable for mastering purposes because it lacks the parameters of an eq more suited to that "like cambridge or UA mastering eq"

    Well tonight i did a shoot out between the Neve 1081 and the UA mastering EQ.

    I tried to replicate as many settings, it's not entirely possible because the frequency bands are not exact to one another, but i managed to get it within 10-20 hertz so over a multitude of tests i expect this hinderance to be minimal.

    OK, first things i noticed with the UAD Mastering Equalizer (UAMEQ)
    Firstly for my ear it seems to add too much middle freqs regardless of settings, it was getting quite annoying once i knew what to listen for.

    Second, the app isn't finished! I have demoed the AU version and when i change the plug in to controls rather than editor it doesn;t let me select the gain! So i have to go via the front panel which only has increments in like 1bd (when you go past +3db of gain)
    Now considering this is a mastering EQ that is just plain wrong.

    Third/fourth The low end and the high end are not nearly as good as the neve 1081 (the low end of the UAMEQ sounds like a sloppy fart in comparison.

    Anyway, i've drifted a little off from what i originally wanted to say, basically if you want a mastering EQ bypass the UAD Mastering EQ and get this one, it's more than up for the task.

    by A. Maskens . 4 out of 5 stars

    This EQ is another great one to own. Mainly because the hardware its based on is legendary! Knowing it's been used all over the place tells you that Neve sound is all over the place too! Having the ability to put some of that sound in my own work is great when I need it!

    Far and away my favorite EQ!

    by J. Barry. 5 out of 5 stars

    In theory I should be able to get the tone and professionalism from my DAW that this EQ allows. I tried and tried but I cannot. This EQ makes my mixes come to life. It sounds amazing, it breathes... air, enhances and enchants and doesn't even use that much DSP. For me, this the 1081 is essential. I pair this with an sm7b for a vocal tone that is unparalleled. It breathes life into muddy tracks and makes everything feel awake. Great job, UAD. Best EQ ever.

    Great for heavy guitars, damn near everything else

    by I. Finlayson. 4 out of 5 stars

    This is my absolute favorite high-gain guitar EQ; the frequency selections are perfect and it gets you where you need to go quickly. It has a pleasing overall tone and "vibe". It can be more surgical than many of the other UAD EQs, but still broad enough to remain a "character" eq. I'm a fan.

    Best Neve EQ

    by A. Berkut. 5 out of 5 stars

    I was looking for the best equalizer for guitars. And I found it... Neve 1081. If you try to work with him, make sure that it works well on any material

    The definitive channel EQ

    by M. Maranghello. 5 out of 5 stars

    The Neve 1081 is a plugin that has a place on every channel; virtually any sound can benefit from it. It's good on just about everything, The high and low pass filters are best in class and very musical. If you are into clean and well defined mixes, this is the way to go. The 1081SE sounds quite the same than the 1081, but is way cheaper on DSP, which makes it great for larger projects that do not require that extra lushness on every channel.
