Neve® 1081 Classic Console EQ
Neve 1081 / 1081SE Classic Console EQ
I was raised on a Neve 8048 at United Sound Systems in Detroit in the 90's so I pretty much know what to expect from a 1081, I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I started to dial this guy in. The filters are amazing and I loved the top end smoothness. I actually have this EQ set up in my mix preferences as my default EQ. Being that the original was built like a tank the best thing about it is that your fingers aren't raw from spinning those metal frequency rings around! Good Job UA!
Simple, warm, powerful, versatile. The presets are clearly named and do what they say for real. Good for fixing dull tracks, great for making clean tracks pop. Bass, acoustic guitars, and mastered programs all benefit. Worth it.
I'm happy with this product, it is very true, thank you for your UAD products, ryldo
Although I have not been able to use this EQ on all instruments, I have used this on a handfull and have found that this thing really seems to shine on individual guitar and kick drum tracks as well as snare. I found other EQs that work better on overheads, bass, etc., but I can't find a better one for the above mentioned. Simply a great EQ with some character that makes guitars, kicks, and snares sit on the mix just right.
Incredible equalizer which really opens up the sound without sounding harsh. The parameters are very musical. If you suffer from dull audio, Dr. Neve has the prescription for you! Use this when you need a bit more control than the Neve 1073.

Great for bass and guitar tones. I don't use it as much as the 1073 however.
this is the most subtle and transparent EQ I ever used
Well, this EQ is simply brilliant. There's all you need. High and low cut, parametric filters, different Q settings,gain control. But it's not all.
The most is its sound. Deep and round low end wonderful on kick drums, a shiny high end, and a perfect mid range.
This EQ is on all my DAW channels. My drums are now sounding like a drum. My electric guitars go out of my speaker.
My first choice after going through the Studer A800 plugin.
From France, thanks UA, thanks Neve!
Yeah really good. My choice eq for vocals, electric guits, hammonds, keys...
I do mostly rock/metal productions and the 1081 is THE EQ to boost the Hi end without getting harsh. The low end is sweet too! Actually, it's a great EQ, lot's of character.
If you want a clean EQ, that's not the one for you.
I love it!
A lovely emulation of the classic hardware! Beatiful on vocals.
My favorite EQ to breathe new life in any sound! Yes, it colors, but exactly how you expect it from Neve.
This is (also)one of my favorite UAD plug-ins. Like the 1073 it has this suberb sound that makes everything going through it, sounds really nice. The 1081 is a bit more flexible than the 1073, but still the same musical touch is added. Highly recommended.
i love it a lot
amzaing and high high high quality
Neve 1081 eq, even at extreme settings sounds pleasant :)
you can't go wrong
Very good EQ sound, better than many other EQs I tested. It also delivers a transparency of the stereo image which I did not hear with any other EQ. The 1073 Plugin did that, too, but to my ears the 1081 was a little more transparent.
Great plugin, it has that signature sound and has heaps of options. I think I prefer this to the 1073.
There are a few things I don't use this for...I can't think of any off the top of my head =)
I use these EQs on almost every track. They simply sound great! You won't be disappointed.
