4-Band EQ & High & Low Cut Filters Plug-In Modeled After Prized Neve 8048 Console
First produced in 1972 by Neve, the 1081 channel module was found in consoles such as the 8048. In fact, vintage 8048 consoles, with 1081 modules, are still in wide use today at classic facilities such as The Village in Los Angeles, and have been chosen by artists ranging from The Rolling Stones to The Red Hot Chili Peppers. UA’s Neve 1081 EQ plug-in is an exacting emulation of the channel module’s four-band EQ with high and low cut filters featuring two parametric midrange bands and “Hi-Q” selections for tighter boosts or cuts.
The Neve 1081 EQ is a five frequency (3.3, 4.7, 6.8, 10, 15kHz) high shelf/bell EQ, a ten frequency (1.5, 1.8, 2.2, 2.7, 3.3, 3.9, 4.7, 5.6, 6.8 , 8.2kHz) hi-mid parametric EQ with two Q types, a ten frequency (220, 270, 330, 390, 470, 560, 680, 820, 1000,1200Hz) low-mid parametric EQ with two Q types, a five frequency (33, 56, 100, 180, 330Hz) low shelf/bell EQ plus a five frequency (27, 47, 82, 150, 270Hz) high pass filter and five frequency (18, 12, 8.2, 5.6, 3.9kHz) low pass filter. Other features include a –20 to +10 db input gain control, phase reverse, and EQ bypass.
