Great sounding pre-amp for everything, shines on synths and bass
I know everyone uses this for vocals but it is so versatile. I love using a synth pad to overdrive this and then cut the volume with the fader. It almost seems like real hardware is being pushed to the edge. Sounds great on bass too, the EQ is simple but musical and effective.
I owned and worked on some of the best Neve 80 Series consoles in the world. One thing that I have always noticed about real Neve 80 Series consoles in excellent condition is that as soon as you put well recorded tracks just running through the line inputs, you will get an amazing sound right from the start. UAD has done a great job of modeling that characteristic in their Neve Preamp plugin. Great job UA!
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.

Love especially the Masterbus preset
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
MY NEW MBC, all you did was make me want the real thing now.....dammit lol
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.
Great plugin, but..
This plugin sounds fantastic, but needs urgent GUI update. It’s a almost impossible to read the parameters. Please UAD listen to your costumers and make resizable or bigger GUI on some plugins. Other companies are taking enormous advantage in this area
Must have for vocals
Got That Legendendary vintage popping Sound
My Go to for Drums....With Neve u can never go wrong.Its got that Vintage Neve Popping sound We all Love to hear...
Perfect when you don't need the whole 1973 channel strip (or limited dsp)
I had the Neve 1973 channel strip which sounds great but is too dsp intensive to use on multiple tracks with my little Apollo Duo. This preamp only version allows me to put it on all tracks and recreate a great Neve console (it only uses 12% dsp per instance instead of 41% for the channel strip). I can also use it in conjunction with the API preamp to get different flavors for different instruments (usually API for drums, Neve for the rest)

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.
Love it on guitar bus
I use this a lot on my guitar bus. Especially if it’s a dirty bus. Also interesting on overhead bus too. Glad I got it as it sounds great and gives a different flavor from the 1081.
Sounds like heaven
This is my go to unison pre. Sounds sooo good and juicy that I use it in Luna like it’s in the console slot. So need a Neve console emulation for Luna. I use this more than the 1073 as it’s more versatile
Very nice touch, but...
need a low pass filter!
It's not obvious,far from a fact - I MAY imagine it... But when I put this on whatever chanel, and just give it a bit of extra input, pull back output, it becomes more easier/fun to mix with. I have for sure had the same experience with outboard gear: No thing to hear but in the mix and working with it, it's more "in my ear"
Simply amazing sounding!!!!
I love this Neve 88rs
