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.

Thank You

This is one of the best plugins you guys have made. I loved the 1073 but this is a game changer. Wow

Thank you!

It’s about time someone modeled the superior 1084. I was getting tired of explaining to people that they are a notch up from the 1073. I have 8 well maintained units. I can testify that this UAD model really nails the tone. Thanks UA!!

Its better than plugging in without a unison preamp

I bought this my first day with my apollo, needless to say I was impressed at the change it made between off and on. I was also disappointed with how crappy my SM7B + Cloudlifter sounded going into this though, my focusrite sounded fine with those two and it sounded pretty dead on this set up, I did a trade in at my local shop and got a WA-87 Condenser mic and now I can see the power this plugin brings. It reacted a lot better with my condenser mic's because even an AT2020 sounded better than my SM7B. UAD stuff is amazing but try the demo before you buy anything and compare it with other brands versions as well. Most of the time UAD will have superior plugins but can also be 3x the price even with a 60% off sale.

This preamp and EQ is for real.

This item needs no review, it speaks for it self. I guarantee this (Neve 1084 Per And EQ will set you free. This one is for real

My go to pre for tracking and mixing since I got it...

Was a pretty big fan of the UA 1073 and now I've been using UA 1084 nonstop. It is a better mousetrap - adding reimagined frequencies, narrow/wide ‘Q’ control, making some bands semi-parametric, allowing for subtle ‘air’ and for surgically notching out offending frequencies, getting rid of ribbon hiss etc... I've found it's adding warmth and depth to vocals, guitars, and acoustic instruments of all kinds. Go to pre/eq for tracking and mixing - instant success with acoustic and electric guitars and bass so far. Highly recommended and hard to beat the price for Neve owners.

Very Nice Preamp


Very successful replica of the preamplifier: sounds clean and clear, detailed or colored when using the EQ section or driving the preamp to saturation.

Great Plug in Heavy DSP Load

I suppose it's the trade off (Especially on a UAD2 Duo) but I can only get 2 instances of this plugin before it deactivates. Great plugin though.

Top!

Tested the demo and bought it immediately. I love the Neve 1073 but the 1084 is even better. It has great presets for a quick workflow. 5 stars
