The engine powering a handful of rare Neve 80 series consoles, the Neve 1084 channel amplifier and EQ is a lusted-after audio masterpiece. Its class-A preamp offers signature Neve clarity and character, while its colorful palette of EQ options take it several steps beyond the famed 1073.®

Step Up to a 1084

Step Up to a 1084

Not long after the release of the venerable Neve 1073 channel amplifier in 1970, Neve introduced the 1084 — an "upsell" module that featured the same class-A mic/line preamp as the 1073, with the addition of three switchable EQ bands and narrow or wide Q settings. This potent combination offered producers a rainbow of colors, textures, and precision.

The Only End-to-End Neve 1084 Circuit Emulation

The Only End-to-End Neve 1084 Circuit Emulation

The UAD Neve 1084 Preamp & EQ plug-in gives you all the features, unique circuit behaviors, and coveted warmth of Neve's original analog design by thoroughly modeling the dual-stage class‑A "Red Knob" preamp, post-fader output amplifier, and musical EQ filters.

Unison Technology for Apollo Interfaces

Unison Technology for Apollo Interfaces

Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the Neve 1084 plug-in captures the hardware’s mic preamp impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors, giving you all the sheen and punch of the original Neve module — with bi-directional control of your Apollo interface's mic preamps.

High-End Heaven

High-End Heaven

The Neve 1084 Preamp and EQ plug-in expertly captures the vintage hardware's EQ, letting you easily add shimmer and air to vocals, acoustic guitars, drums and synths with the three selectable high band filters (10, 12, and 16 kHz), for a bevy of analog dimension and color.

Add Heft and Weight

Add Heft and Weight

Use the Neve 1084 plug-in's mid band to inject muscle and grit to guitars, piano, and strings, or use the selectable Hi Q and shape more surgically. The plug-in's low band lets you tighten up a kick drum, push guitars, or beef up a synth bass. Plus, you can clean up sibilance, hiss, and low-end rumble with selectable high and low cut filters.

      Neve sound

      Also great with big brother Neve1073.
      1084 has a tweakable HF EQ.

      Fantastic!

      I love this plugin. I've only had the chance to really use it on electric but man, this thing is soaked with tone. Crazy good!

      Always On

      I think the benefit of the EQ alone makes it a contender. It allows me to stay in the box with easy automated recall over outboard gear. I used the 1073 often, and feel like I should have grabbed this one first.

      Very good channel strip

      Adds a certain type of high end sheen that can’t be achieved with other plugins even with the default settings. It is also less harsh than the neve 1073 which doesn’t always sound good on every source.

      What is with all the fuss

      I honestly didn't think anything of this plugin. it didn't appeal to me at all. I tried it on vocals and oops what have I been missing... the amount of rich harmonics you can add. Then came drums, them synths and well the rest is history. It has a place on every channel if you ask me. The amount of detail that comes through is excellent. I couldn't be more wrong with my initial thoughts on this. Whats the fuss... well I was the doofus in this case lol

      Neve® 1084™ Preamp & EQ

      The plugin is simply great. It has an extraordinary sound. This produces a beautiful and unique harmonic distortion. EQ is magic. Anyway, if you are hesitating whether to buy it or not, don't do it anymore, just buy it right now.

      More precise than 73

      I really enjoy the sound and the Eq possibilities more accurate for some synths

      I tested it out and I was very impressed. Can’t wait to record a few tracks with it.

      Neve 1084

      Having been privileged enough to have used the hardware on a few occasions, this version sounds pretty dang accurate and lovely on just about anything I can throw at it!

      What can I say except that everything Neve is amazing.

      All that vintage goodness and warm sound

      I use this practically on every vocal
      Gives it a special type of character and color

      Another very well done Channel Strip by Neve.

      I tend to reach for the 1084 more than any other preamp/eq in unison. More options than the 1073. Warmth n sizzle!
