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.

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.

Amazing...

...now I know why Hollywood blockbusters sound that good :) A real joy to use - hoping that the newest features of the current DFC3D (e.g. 8-Band EQ, Subharmonic Synthesiser, Multi-band DeEsser, 3D Functions) will be made available soon within a further iteration of this great plugin!!!
- Thanks a lot @AMS-Neve and @UA -

Wonderful plug-in

I have been using the DFC’s EQ on almost every project I’ve had lately. The superb sonics of this plug-in are mind-blowing. The compressor/limiter is very clear and transparent. There is much more to explore in the DFC and I have just been scratching the surface. Of the 72 UA plug-in I own this one is definitely in the top 5! Grab it, you won’t be sorry.

Sneaky good

I’ve been using the DFC more all the time. I think using the actual code instead of modeling, a console gives a clean, low dsp useability that’s hard to beat. When I need low cut only, it’s so efficient, I add it and then all the other tools it furnishes are available. It’s not for adding character, I’ve got other UA plugs for that. I can mix my digital project on a digital console transparently. It’s my go to for a lot of channels.

My secret sauce plugin for high frequencies

The phase type and width are secret sauce knobs to perfectly sit a track into a mix. Saturation is super easy and maintains smoothness even when pushed hard. Mixing is easier and faster without having to fiddle with multiple plugins. Thanks UA and Neve!

Quick return on initial financial pain

The AMS Neve DFC channel strip contains exactly the same algorithm used on the actual console, and it sounds like it. The logical layout has components working together in a way individual plugins can’t match. At the cost of only one insert slot, the workflow is fast, versatile and very easy to use while getting rid of digital audio sterility. The lavish, thick and bigger than life theatre sound can make your low budget soundtrack or band mix equal more expensive sounding productions. This is a non-wince at cash out plugin, your admission into the big boy sound club without spending small jet money on a console. I highly recommend it!

A Sleeper

The DFC Channel Strip is the cleanest and most versatile of UAD’s channel strips. It has a great gate/expander, a natural-sounding stereo widener, and excellent eq and compressor/limiters. Plus a dynamic eq band as a treat.

All You'll need

Ok , i hestitated to put 4 stars , just because of the GUI , under than that , this thing is a beast , quality wise , i can't see anything itb like this exept for Weiss , the Eq is exellent , the dynamic section is top notch , add to this a dynamic eq and even a stereo wide control with also phase controls .
Now add to this that it's 22 % on cpu (stereo) and you'll get a workhorse that can be used all other the session.
ITB heaven , add some dsp power and you'll get a superb post production virtual console !! And not only , this thing shines on everything , don't be fooled by the fact it's aimed to "movies" , nope !! Everything !!

Don't trust me , try it , take your time , on everything .
