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.

      Sounds like heaven

      This is my go to unison pre. Sounds sooo good and juicy that I use it in Luna like it’s in the console slot. So need a Neve console emulation for Luna. I use this more than the 1073 as it’s more versatile

      this is an incredible preamp

      Sounds great, both vocals and drums individually. The sound becomes special, filled with the character of the legendary preamp. Very happy with the purchase, I recommend.

      Very natural feel

      It is nice and full on my acoustic and electric guitars. Bass guitar sounds so powerful. I should have bought it a long time ago.

      Neve Analog Sound.

      If you want a warm sound this is your preamp. Also with the equalizer you can get a very nice air in your recordings.

      My favorite Neve!

      This line of preamplifiers sounds great! Like the 1074, I use it everywhere. From voice recording, to channel and group inserts. It rocks and enriches the material. Thanks UAD and Neve!

      My favourite unison plugin!

      Love this plugin! You can put this in the unison slot and track with it, or just add it to any existing track/bus and you’ll instantly get some of that lovely vintage Neve magic happening. Even without adding any EQ, the preamp section makes everything sound more rich and lively. Top end still cuts but never sounds brittle or thin. The EQ is super musical too, in my experience it’s very easy to add extra body to guitar tracks even with just very subtle use.
      Highly recommend this plugin!

      Reliable

      Definitely a go to in my library of preamps. Paired up against my wa73 by warm audio and it easily has a warmer sound for certain vocals.

      Lovely.

      The Neve 1084 Pre-amp and EQ
      has such a sweet and clean sound.
      It’s like my ears say thank you each time I run something through it.
      Absolutely stunning clarity when used with orchestral arrangements!
      Thank you UA!
      I’ll never do another session without it.

      Amazing Preamp

      I like this a little better than the 1073, it’s a little cleaner which in my opinion is better for a modern vocal sound but can get quite saturated if driven hard. It’s my favourite preamp without a doubt.

      I am delighted!!!

      Choosing this plugin section Unison, my vocals began to sound very beautiful, I chose Neve 1084 and did not regret it, the vocal part very easily fits into the mix... this preamp is now my love

      Great sounding Neve pre & eq, works for everything. Wanted this for a long time, demoed it eventually for the new mix I was working and bought it immidiately. Love it!

      Just like the real thing

      I have had the pleasure to work with the 1084 preamp/EQ several times in the studio and this plugin from the good folk at UA captures the true essence of what Neve stands for. Clarity, punch and true analog feel.
