Overview

Neve 1073 / 1073SE Classic Console EQ Plug-Ins

3-Band EQ & High-Pass Filter Plug-In Modeled After Revered Neve 8014 Console

Originally designed by Neve in 1970, the Neve 1073 channel module is derived from revered Neve consoles such as the 8014. The 1073 is famous for adding otherwise unattainable sheen and clarity to music tracks. Modeling the 3-band EQ and high-pass filter with painstaking detail and thoroughness, Universal Audio’s Neve 1073 EQ plug-in replicates the sonic experience of its analog inspiration with stunning detail. Other features include a 30 dB range of gain control, phase reverse and EQ bypass.

The Neve 1073/SE EQ is a fixed 12kHz high shelving EQ, a six frequency (7.2k, 4.8k, 3.2k, 1.6k, .7k, .36k) parametric EQ, a four frequency (220, 110, 60 and 35 Hz) low shelving EQ, and a four frequency high pass filter. Other features include a 30 dB range of gain control, plus phase reverse and EQ bypass.

    "[I use] the Fairchild Compressor, Neve 1081, Neve 1073, LA-2A and the 1176 Compressor. They all give you something different."

    Ryan West

    (Kanye West)

    "I frequently grab the Neve 1073 plug-in for bass, kicks, snares & vocals because whatever I do, that EQ always sounds musical."

    Nathaniel Kunkel

    (Nirvana)

    "[The 1073] was able to get the guitar to grind in a way that I could not get out of any other plug, much less another Neve."

    Paul Vnuk, Jr.

    (Recording Magazine)

    "As you would expect from UA, each plug-in is visually and functionally accurate to its real world counterpart"

    Bruce Aisher

    (Future Music UK)

    "UA have taken revered [Neve] hardware and modelled it to perfection to produce a killer bundle."

  • Paul White

    (Sound on Sound)

    "Once again Universal Audio have gone the extra mile to capture the authentic character of the real thing"

    Paul White

    (Sound On Sound)

    "[The Neve 1073 EQ plug-in has] all the bite, without breaking your skin, just like the original."

    Still loving these despite upgrading.
    by J. H (Monday 5 January, 2015)

    The new 1073 is incredible, but very DSP hungry. I run these classic plugs on guitars a lot, to make simple EQ tweaks, as well as the HP filter. I can drive these a bit to add some "analog" dirt as well. If you buy this collection, you'll be amazed at how useful these legcy 1073s are. Read More
