EQ & Dynamics Section Plug-In Derived From Neve’s Flagship Large-Format Analog Console
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. Many professionals in both the audio and film communities consider the 88RS the ultimate console for modern features and reliability. The 88RS has found a home in some of the finest rooms and scoring stages around the world, including Ocean Way, Abbey Road, AIR, The Village, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Skywalker Sound. UA’s Neve 88RS Channel Strip plug-in captures the EQ and dynamics section from this flagship console, providing a rich palette of modern sound-sculpting tools.
With a rich palette of modern sound-sculpting tools, the Neve 88RS Channel Strip captures the EQ and dynamics section from Neve’s flagship console. The controls comprise 12 dB per octave high and low cut filters, a four-band EQ plus limiting, compression, gate and expansion. The middle EQ bands are fully parametric, while the flexible high and low bands provide the user with two fixed-Q types and the ability to switch to shelving EQ.
The VCA-type Limit/Comp provides a 0.01 to 3s release, Auto Release and a continuously variable ratio control with a fixed fast or slow attack time. The Gate/Exp provides 0.01 to 3s release times, fast or slow attack times plus Threshold, Range and Hysteresis to tailor your gate or expansion effect to the perfect response for any source.
Additionally, the user may engage the P-DYN button to reorder the signal chain so that the EQ is first. With the SC-EQ button, the user may engage a sidechain feature to achieve frequency-dependent compression for such useful tasks as de-essing.
