Neve® 1081 Classic Console EQ
Neve 1081 / 1081SE Classic Console EQ
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.
what can you say? It sounds great. I haven't had any real Neve hardware so I can't personally compare, but it sure sounds killer
No better or worse than the other Neve EQs. So how do I rate perfection?
At least the bloody switches don't break.
One Of the most musical eq i'd Ever found! I cant go into my drums, bass or guitar with out it!!
If you don’t have it you cannot professionally boost frequencies. That simple …………………
Another incredible Neve plug! I have the entire bundle and it does NOT disappoint. The most impressive plugs I've bought in the past 5 years!
Because of it's versatility, I think this EQ is BETTER than the 1073.
Same great NEVE sound, but you can use it on way more stuff with the add Frequencies available for tweaking. This my go to EQ for Kick, Overheads, Elec. Bass & Guitars.
The 1073 is my go to EQ for Snare.
amazing EQ! i also have line6 neve emulation. but UAD plug is killer!!! vocals gets a new life! good job, UA!
Well, i think it's safe to say I have become a Neve junkie, well in the only way i can afford to: via UAD plugs!
I tried the demo out and to be honest with you i wasn't getting it!
I largely ignored it for a few days, i think i may of even muttered overhyped to myself.
So a few days go by and im working on a new piece, im now looking for an eq to give it that certain feel (i can't describe that feel, i just know it when i hear it) so i went through the other Eq's on the demo; presision EQ (gorgeous but very much a mastering app, not really applicable for this piano part) Cambridge (again great but i wasn';t feeling it) then i thought i'll try the Neve again.
Well within a few mins of tweaking i found that sound, so warm it's like being cuddled by millions of tiny duvets! Do Neve make beds? Perhaps they can think of adding one to their range.
Long story medium, i don't believe this is the end to all EQ's. in fact i think it's limited (as much as the original) and fundamentally less well specified than alot of UAD's other offerings, but when you find the right part for it HS! it soooooo works.
Which is why i happilly bought it and give it the highest recommendation i can :)
thanks for reading.
