Neve® Complete Plug-In Bundle

Our All-Inclusive Neve® Bundle, Featuring 9 Authentic Hardware Emulations for Adding Legendary British Colour, Bite, and Punch.

The Neve Complete Bundle puts every colour of the classic Neve sound within easy reach, while saving you hundreds versus buying these award-winning plug-ins individually. For more than 40 years, Neve England has been regarded as one of the most respected names in audio recording equipment, among veterans of both the music and film industries. Universal Audio is proud to offer the most accurate — and notably, the only fully licensed and endorsed — software emulations of some of Neve’s most revered hardware products. From the big, open sound of the 88RS Channel Strip, to the unmistakable sound and clarity of the 1073 and 1081, the world of Neve is at your fingertips.

Neve 88RS

Neve® 88RS Channel Strip Plug-In

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. Considered by many professionals to be the ultimate analog console, the 88R's open, musical sound and powerful dynamics features place it among the best-sounding audio consoles in history, at any price. Learn why legendary studios including Ocean Way, Abbey Road, AIR, The Village, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Skywalker Sound choose the 88 Series with Universal Audio's painstakingly emulated 88RS Channel Strip plug-in.

Neve 1073

Neve® 1073 / 1073SE Classic Console EQ Plug-In

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 — particularly guitar, bass, and drums. Modeling the 3-band EQ and high-pass filter with painstaking detail, Universal Audio’s Neve 1073 EQ delivers the same sonic experience of its analog cousin, with all the legendary bite and punch intact. At no extra charge, the 1073 EQ includes a DSP optimized 1073SE EQ for higher instance counts.

Neve 1081

Neve® 1081 / 1081SE Classic Console EQ Plug-In

The Neve 1081 channel module was first produced in 1972 by Neve, and was used to provide the mic/line amp and EQ sections in consoles such as the Neve 8048. In fact, vintage 8048 consoles with 1081 modules are still in wide use today, and have been chosen by artists ranging from The Rolling Stones to The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Sonically, the 1081 provides more flexible EQ control than the 1073, making it a favorite for processing vocals. 

Neve 31102

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

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 that falls somewhere between a 1073 and 1081, and its 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 have 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.

Neve 88RS

Neve® 33609 / 33609SE Compressor Plug-In

Derived from the original Neve 2254 compressor, circa 1969, the 33609 stereo buss compressor/limiter utilizes a bridged-diode gain reduction circuit and many custom transformers for a uniquely "colourful" sound. The UAD Neve 33609 is the only Neve-sanctioned software recreation of the Neve 33609 (rev C). Every detail of the original unit is captured, to match the sonic results and musicality of its hardware counterpart with absolute precision. Essential for buss processing, drum groups, and even full mixes, the 33609 plug-in includes a DSP-optimized 33609SE which allows for higher instance counts.

Requires a UAD DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface available from authorized dealers worldwide and the latest version of the UAD Powered Plug-In Software (available here).

    "The [UAD] Neve 1073 & 1081 EQ emulations are stellar and sound crisp and smooth, even at the extreme edges."

    Neil Mclellan

    (TapeOp)

    "The Neve 88RS Channel Strip is wicked — really proper ... If I had only this plug-in on every channel, I'd be good to go."

    Vance Powell

    (The Raconteurs)

    "If I want to dig the wool out, I use a [Neve]1073 plug-in. I want to add some boom, I go to the middle, and crank it up."

    Ed Cherney

    (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton)

    "I've put it [Neve 1073 EQ plug-in] up against the hardware 1073s I have, and I end up using the plug-ins."

    Darrell Thorp

    (Beck, Radiohead, Charlotte Gainsbourg)

    "I love the Neve® 1081 Classic Console EQ Plug-In. It can be a subtle EQ if you just need to brighten something up a little bit. It can also be a really dirty EQ, if you really have to dig in and try to get some character.”

  • John Fields

    (Switchfoot, P!nk)

    “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.”

    Dylan "3-D" Dresdow

    (Black Eyed Peas, Michael Jackson, Usher)

    Ian Boxill

    (Janet Jackson, Prince)

    “I use the Neve 1073 as both an EQ and an ‘aural exciter.’ No other EQ breathes life and excitement into a sterile DAW audio track or soft synth like this does.”

    John Powell

    “The [UAD] Neve 1081 allows me to manipulate the upper frequencies which is essential for orchestral recordings.”

  • Garrett "Jacknife" Lee

    Glenn Rosenstein

    (Ziggy Marley, U2)

    "I'm very fond of the Neve plugs, the 1073 and the 1081 EQ's ... They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside."

    (James Taylor, Rod Stewart)

    "Neve 1073, Fairchild 670, & EMT 140 — I don't think I'd even consider mixing in the box without them."

    Neil Mclellan

    (TapeOp)

    "One the last Prodigy album I used this [Neve 33609] plug-in across whole drum groups as well as the mix bus."

    Hector Delgado

    (Jay-Z, Ledisi)

  • Ivan Barias

    (Faith Evans)

  • Ed Cherney

    (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton)

    "Oh, the 33609 [plug-in] is great, I love it on lead vocals. It’s also an excellent buss limiter/compressor."

    Vance Powell

    (The Raconteurs)

    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 White

    (Sound On Sound)

    (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."

    (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."

    Neve 33609 The professional must-have Compressor/limiter
    by R. Edwards (Friday 8 November, 2013)

    I've used and owned the hardware versions of the Neve 33609 since they were first available. Without doubt, this plug-in is indistinguishable from my favourite hardware. There hardly a broadcast mix that wouldn't benefit by using this across the final output. A work of genius in emulating the work … Read More

    Only channel strip u need
    by M. Åkesson (Thursday 11 July, 2013)

    When I tried this plugin for the first time it wasn´t the Eq or the compressor that impressed me the most. It was the expander/gate. It´s simply put incredible! However the Eq has that sweet Neve sound that you would expect and the compressor is responsive and accurate. It´s my go to plugin in ev … Read More

    So much bang for your buck
    by J. Moreland (Wednesday 15 May, 2013)

    Over the years I've gathered quite an affinity for Neve's "quirky" EQ's. There is something oddly unconventional about Neve designed equalizers. The normal rules of thumb used with all other EQ's just don't seem to apply to them. Instead, one has to move the knobs around (while listening closely) an … Read More

    Great Stuff
    by G. Nagy (Saturday 6 April, 2013)

    I have never had the chance to hear the hardware itself but this channel strip sound great on my home recorded vocal track (male vocal) The EQ works perfectly and somehow I found it more characteristic and perfect than 1081 on the same track. The only reason I rate 4 out 5 that the gate is almost un … Read More
