Overview

Neve® 31102 / 31102SE Classic Console EQ Plug-Ins

3-Band Active EQ & High/Low Filters Plug-In Modeled After Legendary Neve 8068 Console

Originally featured in the Neve 8068 console, the 31102 EQ was used to mix one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, Appetite For Destruction by Guns-N-Roses. With its distinct filter shaping and familiar Neve sheen and bite, the Neve 31102/SE EQ Powered Plug-In provides another step in the evolution of classic Neve EQs. Artists ranging from Primus and Metallica to My Morning Jacket and The Red Hot Chili Peppers have also called on the distinct tone of the 31102 EQ in the studio. UA’s Powered Plug-In Neve 31102 EQ delivers the same sonic experience as its analog cousin with exacting detail.

Three-band active EQ and High/Low filters offer enhanced tone-shaping possibilities and a feature complexity that sits squarely between its legendary cousins, the 1073 and the 1081.

    “To have unlimited channels of UAD Neve 31102 on a mix is a dream come true. It’s excellent on just about any source material.”

    Ryan Hewitt

    (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

    “The UAD Neve 31102 is my go-to drum EQ in my mixes...there's no other plug-in that can give me as meaty a kick drum sound as this one!”

    Paul White

    (Sound On Sound)

    "Tonally, the Neve [31102] sounds warmer than the Helios [Type 69] and Harrison [32C] EQs, but that's part of its charm."

    (Computer Music)

    "The mid-band bell curve is where the character of the unit [Neve 31102] lies... It bites in & cuts without leaving the sound thin."

    (Computer Music)

    "[The Neve 31102 top end] is airy and glistening, with no hint of the harshness that's found on a lot of digital EQs."

  • (Computer Music)

    "The warmth of the [Neve 31102's] bottom end is full, fat and creamy."

    One of the best!!!
    by P. Boanton (Thursday 29 January, 2015)

    This is a recreation of the famous mic pre's in the 8088 console. This mic pre is the evolution of the 1073/84. I've personally never touched a 8088, but this is a stellar plugin. It seems to open things up when you push the pre's input, also adding a touch of colorful distortion. In a… Read More

    This one was new to me
    by E. Fischer (Friday 23 January, 2015)

    I am older than I look, so I remember the first wave of 1073's, 1084's, etc. in custom boxes in the early 90's. But this was a Neve EQ I'd never come across before. It is my new favorite electric guitar EQ. Really powerful, full of personality. Recommended! Read More

    The Ease
    by R. Edwards (Monday 21 July, 2014)

    I demoed all EQ plug-ins primarily searching for a great EQ for vocals. After trying all I decided to go with the Neve 31102 for specific reasons. The clarity first off, without adding color it allowed the vocals to ride on top of the track effortlessly. Also the ease of the Neve, with only… Read More

    Best of both worlds
    by Z. Barzilai (Tuesday 3 June, 2014)

    Like having the top end of the 1071 with the bottom of the 1081. Perfect :) Read More

    Sounds and Feels Better than the 1073
    by C. Huseyin (Tuesday 25 March, 2014)

    This unit is superior to the 1073. It's not to drag down the 1073, but the comparison is bound to made and my choice goes to this plug-in. I own both UA 1073 and now the 31102. This unit can do what the 1073 can't do in the lows and low-mids, while the hi-mids have their own kind of… Read More
