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 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.

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.

      I wasn't able to leave a review until now as it blew my mind! Creamy, open, rich, beautiful. Makes anything and everything I run through it sound better. Takes 60% of a DSP, wouldn't mind UAD offering more powerful chips.

      Fantastic plugin

      This is a great plugin. Sounds great, looks great, is great. I'm still getting to know it, but thus far it's become my go-to pre; particularly for vocals and acoustic instruments. It is heavy on DSP usage though, so don't expect to line up a dozen of these with a quad. Hopefully there's a DSP lite version on the way...

      Neve® 1084™ Preamp & EQ

      it's a Neve sound, of course! the only thing i wish they could improve on the "LOOK" of it, at least when you move the fader, there should be somewhere that indicate the "exact" value that you are at. You see, we want that old analog sound, we want that "classic feel" but we wouldn't mind the ease of control and preciseness of parameter in modern world. This has been an issue for many UAD plugins, lack of modern indicator and ease of control. In modern music production, precision and ease of control is important as everything need to sound tight and punchy these day, while keeping that warm sound. They are not in conflict.

      I can't escape from it!

      Since purchasing the 1084, I have put it in most of my work. I'll listen to an older recording through my apollo virtuals, pop a 1084 on, and new, improved life will be found. Even when I listen to records, my system loves it!

      Incredible on the master

      use this on all my sessions now as part of my master chain. Just like the 1073 but with a different color and the presents are outstanding

      I have an original hardware 1084 and they have nailed the sound. There are some very little differences but is quite similar. Very nice sound quality.

      This is a gorgeous sounding preamp. I recorded a song where I used 1084 on every instrument on the way in, and it works on everything. The EQ is super smooth. Great purchase.

      Absolutely Good!!!

      It’s the NEVE, what else~?
      Soft tone rather than Neve 1073, still good.

      What can I say! But WOW.

      This plugin has made my whole recording and mixing sessions so much fun. I'm new to universal audio so I got this at a steal with 50% off plus a £20 coupon. I stuck this on drums and wow I got the exact drum sound I have been trying to get on this song for ages. On vocals it sounds incredible, the pronunciation of every word is heard with such clarity and warmth. On guitars pushing the pre with some lovely saturation that I can only describe as cream to my ears. All I can say is buy it. You will be so happy you did. The eq curves is like no other.
