AMS Neve DFC Channel Strip
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, most notably Skywalker Sound and Warner Bros. facilities.
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.
Now You Can:
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
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.
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
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.
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 bests plugins of UAD
As a full time professional voice actor, I record with my Manley Ref C into a Great River pre. I use this plug in post to lightly shape (doesn't require much) and tidy up the raw VO before sending it out. I can't believe I futzed around with so many other plugs before I discovered this one. It is the ideal tool for dialogue work.
Pros and cons
Cons: Only four eq bands and the workflow isn't ideal.
Pros: A quality product. Everything module sounds good.
Summary: A competent plugin, but I tend to use it less and less because of the limitations.

Surprised the hell out of me!
I can't understand how this isn't getting more attention. I didn't get why a plugin version of a digital console strip would be appealing. But I was wrong. Just slapping this onto a channel adds a focus that is difficult to achieve otherwise. The EQ is great transparent and its a joy to boost with, and the compression is one of the most transparent I've ever heard in a plugin. I love color and analog gear, no doubt there... but sometimes you need clean/clear - and this is a wonderful way to get it without venturing into bland/sterile territory. This really stands out as must have for me. When describing it to my wife I told her to take her glasses off... and then put them back on. Seriously.
I bought this plug in to reaserch and learn more about the AMS NEVE.
As clean and open as--and with all the great utility of--the real deal
We all know that Neve was proud of low-distortion and low-noise analog specs and super-fast VCA compression (which isn't always the first choice for everything, but GREAT with peaky sources), and clean, surgical EQ with some phase complexities that defy easy description, but contribute to a signature sound that helped define so many great recordings. While I wouldn't want to be limited to this palette as my only signal path and dynamics processing in the digital era (with so many great analog channel models), many certainly have who owned the hardware. And that most certainly never held anybody back from making a hit record!
Brought this to complete my bundle on a whim!
I brought a bundle and this was not on my mind to purchase, I did so at the last moment. I was very surprised, I love the EQ and the limiter, I use this as the final step in mastering. just a little EQ to smooth everything out. wow....very nice indeed.
Best Channel Strip for audio post
This is the best Channel strip to use in audio post. Simple sounds big and clear
Needs a better programming
Excellent sounding! Reminds me of the good old days of Logic-3. Sound is there... But why is the direction of my mouse not relevant and why do parameters go hey wire when I click on them???? So lets just slow down mouse and scroll at least by 50% and make the direction up/down not crazy like hell (easy programing) .... = Sound is there UI not!
Just mind blowing
I loved it even before the 14 days trail was over. What an tools for producers. And studios overall.
Ams Neve.. Enfin un superbe outil de post-production
Je ne peux plus m'en passer, ce plug est incroyable.
J'utilisais les plug "waves" avant, mais ça c'était avant car il y a une telle différence de qualité entre les deux que je ne peux plus me passer de ce plug.
La compression est magnifique, met parfaitement les voix en valeur dans le mix tout en laissant de la dynamique, les voix respirent, elles ne sont pas écrasées.
Le gate est super et l'eq très précis. J'aurais aimé que ce plug soit un peu plus esthétique, moins jouer le coté "numerique", mais bon, tant que le son est là...!
Avant je mettais beaucoup de plug à la chaine pour arriver à ce que je désirais, maintenant, juste avec ce plug, le son est parfait.
Un grand Bravo, vive Neve, vive Uad.
Make my mixes sounds like a pro.
I've worked on a Neve and this plugin is as close as you can get. Its looks like my studio is turning into an UA workshop. Every product that i have purchased has been nothing but pure quality. Thank UA!
Suena genial. Todavía estoy adaptándome a él pero es fantástico. Sigo aprendiendo del Plug-In
Fantastic channel strip
After using this a few times, I realized I am only scratching the surface of possibilities. It is astounding on a few levels. This is one of those plug ins that really can make a difference. I love it.
This channel strip is the cleanest of all the UAD products, so as you know, if you are already fighting a muddy track, this comes in handy. It would be nice if the all the UAD plugs were telescopic expandable or ratio expandable...hint...
This is a game changer!
This sounds so good the EQ+Compressor are unreal!
I find this to be the best channel strip inbox so far
