Overview
Neve® Complete Plug-In Bundle
Our All-Inclusive Neve Bundle, Featuring
9 Authentic Hardware Emulations

The Neve Complete Bundle puts every color 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 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 Channel Strip Collection

The Neve 88 Series is a paragon of large-format analog console design. Introduced in 2001, the 88 Series is renowned for its startling depth, airiness, and clarity. Now you can track through an authentic emulation of this modern masterpiece — complete with its famous mic/line preamp, cut filters, dynamics, four-band EQ, plus post-fader output amplifier — with the Neve 88RS Channel Strip Collection.

Neve 1073 Preamp &
EQ Plug-In Collection

The Neve 1073 Channel Amplifier is easily the most revered preamp and EQ circuit ever designed. Introduced in 1970, this hallowed class-A, transistor mic/line amp with EQ epitomizes the beautiful "Neve sound," with unparalleled clarity, sheen, and bite. Now for the first time, you can track through the only authentic end-to-end circuit emulation of this legendary piece of audio history. The Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Plug-In Collection also features the Legacy Neve 1073 and 1073SE (“DSP-Lite”) EQs which are optimized for higher instance counts.

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 / 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 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 colorful 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 bus processing, drum groups, and even full mixes, the 33609 plug-in includes a DSP-optimized 33609SE which allows for higher instance counts.
