Neve® 1073® Preamp & EQ Collection
Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection
The Sphere LX that I recently bought with the Neve 1073 is a game changer, a deadly combination for vocals and acoustic guitar.
of all channel strips I own, this is one of my top 3
Neve seems to be an incredible console. Of course, if one has good taste, this is definitely a necessity for audio-obsessed people. This preamp is lovely with beautiful sonic coloring power and high-quality EQ. I am happy with my purchase. As per usual, UAD surpasses expectations. Enjoy!!
super préamp et EQ
pleins de couleurs différentes, l'EQ toujours très efficace, est ce que ça sonne Neve? sûrement, je ne sais pas... mais surtout, disponnible avec UA Connect !
On vocal, bass, drums , Magic!!
A real analog feel
This plugin simply works wonders everywhere, from the kick & snare up to the mixbus! It utterly makes everything sound more rounded and analog without any harshness or hi-fi attitude. Thumbs up Universal Audio
Awesome on vocals and acoustic guitar in Unison and for mixing its magic too..

Nice and easy
Everything that I tracked through it, it sounds great. It thickens the sound quite notably, adding harmonics, and taming the transients a little bit. As a guitar player, I usually struggle to get great results recording acoustic guitar, I have a clear vision of how should sound, and this plugin, it helps me a lot to achieve it.
Best Vocal Peamp
Best/Favorite Vocal Preamp
A colleague recommended me trying this plug in out and 2 hours into my trial I made the purchase. This pre amp along with the Tube Tech compressor is…..Pure Magic!!
Adds great color/characteristics to your tracks using this Preamp/EQ. A must have!
very comfortable to use
It's very smooth and I like it. thank you very much.
Brings the heft.
Used this recently on some lightly distorted big chord hot guitars.and it sat right in the mix with the guitars I used the API channel strip on.
A great compliment to the API that added weight, depth and heft to those punctuating chords without stepping on the API sonic footprint.
Also used this on a bottom snare mic track and brought out a nice, fat tuneful body in the snare that blended great with the battery mics cracked.
Own the hardware - can't tell the difference
I broke my bank account a few years ago and purchased an AMS Neve 1073 preamplifier hardware unit - it's gorgeous and is as sonically stunning on every source as one can imagine. Even more mind-blowing is that this plugin is just as good - it sounds so so spot on to the hardware, that I cannot tell the difference at all. I don't know how UAD manages to capture these hardware sonic signatures, but they do an exquisite job. Thanks to all involved - and, of course, to Sir Rupert Neve who created this work of art for us all to use and enjoy.
This is how I start my day
On every track
Closest Plugin Emulation
Sounds good on anything, it adds that richness to vocals that you're looking for and hearing in mainstream songs. I'd definitely recommend it.

Worthy of his fame
Practical and intuitive. Provides subtle coloration in vintage-style recording.

As is my approach to things in general when I’m making records, I’ll say this in closing: Does this sound EXACTLY LIKE a vintage Neve 1073? I don’t know. Maybe…But I can say that it sounds awesome, and to be honest, that’s all I (and you) should care about.
Very nice touch, but...
need a low pass filter!
