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 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.

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.

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.

      Amazing warm tone

      Been using this on basically everything I'm recording. It's the best sounding unison pre out the lot!

      Neve sound!

      This preamp has flavor. The default setting has a different tone to other preamps, the EQ simple yet gives your audio more texture. Glad I was able to pick this up, I would highly recommend it.

      Great one

      Use this on every mix. Specially on material not recorded through analog preamp/gear to give it move life.

      Great pre.

      Like the 1073 with a little more eq.

      Warm and detailed

      This preamp is fantastic. It has the Neve warmth but also retains a lot of detail and you can push it a little bit without it getting harsh. I find it more musical sounding & useful than the 1073. It’s a Swiss Army knife as it works for so many things. Vocals of course. Miked or DI electric guitar. And great for miked acoustic guitars, which I’m very picky about. Very happy with it.

      Made me a believer

      For the longest time I wanted to get into the 1073 but just never could get it dialed in to my liking. There’s something about the 1084 though that had just that bit of something extra that pulled me in. Once I got it dialed in I found myself re-recording vocals I had already finished mixing because I was really feeling the life the 1084 was adding to takes. Highly recommend!

      My everyday preamp for guitar

      As a guitarist I always want a good pre amp to record my acoustic guitar and this is one of my favorite in UAD.

      It's superb

      This has become my go-to unison emu for synth tracking. Hi pass is great on thick synth pads as it cleans up the low end a little more than the 1073. Add some 12k and you're good to go. Love it!

      There’s Something Better About This 1084 vs 1073

      I think I’ll put it on every track...It’s just heavenly...

      Great Pre & great eq. Different sound than 1073

      I was skeptical that it would sound any different as a preamp than the 1073, but it does sound different - a bit more breath/openness in the low end, for one thing, IMO.
      EQ sounds really good.

      Parenthetically: having several of the unison preamp plug-ins, I’m enjoying cycling through them quickly with the same mic, hearing the different vibes and then choosing the one that fits best for that track. They’re all good in their own way & all different from each other.

      Great Pre Amp

      I had the 1073 already… but I like this one better. There are better eq options. I haven’t done any A-B comparisons, but I tracked drums on an album, where half of the tunes were done in a studio with thousands of dollars worth of vintage Neve pre-amps… and the other half were done at home with an Apollo and this pre-amp. The sounds were very comparable… when the album is mixed, I doubt anyone would be able to say which drums were done in the studio, and which were done at home. That’s the ultimate goal of a piece of software like this; a very good tool.
