An exact replica of the world's top post‑production tool.

The AMS Neve DFC (Digital Film Console) is the ultimate, purpose-built console for multi-format film dubbing and TV post production at the highest level. Used to mix Oscar-winning soundtracks and countless hit TV shows, the AMS Neve DFC resides in the world’s leading post-production houses.

Available exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces, the AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip plug-in offers unprecedented access to the exact same DSP algorithms from the leading modern post production console.

Mix with an exact, plug-in replication of the channel strip from the industry-standard digital film console

Access the same tools and workflow used by today's top re-recording mixers and post-production engineers

Intuitively dial in powerful dynamics processing and EQ with the unique Chan‑Quad Panel

Use the innovative TFT Meters for informative visual feedback and easy graphical editing

An Exact Replicate

An Exact Replicate

The UAD AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip is not a modeled version of the console's channel strip — it is the channel strip. Because the DFC uses the same floating-point architecture as the UAD platform, the developers at AMS Neve were able to map the console’s DSP, instruction for instruction, providing the plug-in with the identical algorithms, features, and sound as the original.

Oscar-Winning Workflow

Oscar-Winning Workflow

The AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip plug-in includes all 74 of the controls on the DFC console’s channel strip, providing you with the same fast and flexible workflow that post-production engineers have used on over 70% of international blockbusters. And unlike other channel strips, the signal flow of the channel strip’s multiple modules can be reorganized on the fly, with intuitive “drag & drop” rearrangement of processing modules.

Dynamics and More

Dynamics and More

The AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip plug-in features an impressive array of DSP processing. For frequency manipulation, you get four bands of fully parametric EQ and two bands of fourth-order filtering. A full suite of dynamics processors includes a compressor, limiter, expander, gate, and a dynamic EQ. You even get phase and width controls.

Comprehensive Toolset

Comprehensive Toolset

The AMS Neve DFC console is revered by film and TV engineers worldwide for its ability to process a wide range of audio material. From quiet footsteps to multi-person dialog to battle scene explosions, the AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip plug-in is a must-have for modern post‑production creatives.

One of the best

Sound is absolutely top notch in every scenario, this level of performance is unrivalled, it is up there with the best of the best. I hope that we will benefit from a native version also.

The Critical Acclaims Are Spot On

This plugin is used to mix films and TV shows for a reason. It is the binding glue in a mix that makes it sound professional.

My most beloved plugin

I use it a lot, and it has become one of my most essential tools. It’s clear and very precise, expanded with a lot of functionality (most feature-packed channel strip of uad). If you want something that sounds modern and elegant but is also very useful for little, precise corrections, e.g., very small EQ or compression when you need it, and detailed highs, why I love its EQ so much. The same developers made it as the original hardware, so it uses Apollo very effectively, with low DSP need. It’s the most underrated UAD plugin, top-notch quality, like the hardware, my secret weapon. For voiceover, DFC with VoxBox is also an excellent choice.

Sounds superb

Very like the AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip. It is sounding awesome and never let's me stuck in a Project.

Incredible Plug-in.

Came here for the low key hype but stayed for the Gate/Expander.

Let’s get this out of the way. The DFC looks ridiculously out-moded. Like something Charles Dye three in the garbage back in 1998. But don’t let the tired, sub-rudimentary GUI fool you. This is probably in my top best plugin list of all time. It’s phenomenal. Buy it.

A classic

This is indeed a digital console channel strip but it sounds very good. clean and flexible with more options than you can think you will need in 1 plugin. I genuinely love using this for live situations

Much better than I expected and really easy to use

The DFC channel strip turned out to be a lot better than I expected, and really easy to use. I was kind of looking for a really good gate, but it turns out I also got a really good expander, compressor, eq and ... you name it ... as well. Sounds to my ears remarkably analogue in the very best possible sense, whilst not sacrificing its digital self. Highly recommended!

For the ultimate professional sound mix

I don't like to write product reviews, but for this product I had to. This is my first review of UAD plugins. This console emulation is AMAZING!! The best Channel Strip I've heard so far.

Clone of the Original

This is a digital clone of the actual AMS Neve DFC. I use it for live audio processing for Podcast, Zoom Meetings and Recording. One of the few UAD plug-ins that has Gate during tracking and live purpose. It seems to be underrated but it is actually one of the most effective and versatile UAD plug-in.
