The only authentic emulation of Neve console summing — exclusively for LUNA.
A major ingredient behind thousands of influential, chart-topping records, Neve 80 series consoles are without equal. These classic analog desks — made famous in the Sound City documentary — deliver three-dimensional nonlinearities and analog heft that infuses your mixes with vibrancy and color.
Developed in partnership with AMS Neve exclusively for LUNA Recording System, Neve Summing Extension emulates the entire summing circuit of an iconic Neve 80 series console — including its coveted 1272TM bus amplifiers — giving your LUNA mixes all the color of Neve's most cherished analog desk.
Easily add width, depth, and character to your mixes with the first authentic emulation of Neve analog summing
Sum individual channels or your entire mix through Neve's iconic 1272 line amplifiers
Harness the complex nonlinearities and musical clipping of Neve's classic 80 series console
Use per-bus Headroom, Trim, and Impedance controls for subtle tone sculpting over your entire mix
Genuine Neve Summing for your Mixes
Far beyond a “summing plug-in,” Neve Summing is an Extension built into LUNA's mixer that emulates every characteristic of both the source and bus channels — including original Neve 80 series’ console fader taper and pan law. This workflow eliminates the need to manage multiple plug-in windows. Simply use the per-bus Headroom control to add color and dynamic enhancement, then season even more with the selectable Impedance switch.
Why Neve Summing?
When audio sources flow through the transformers and custom-built op-amps of a classic Neve 80 series desk — in particular its coveted 1272 line amplifiers — random analog nonlinearities combine to produce harmonic magic. These summed signals add character, depth, and dimension, for a more cohesive and vibrant mix.
Authentic Down to the Last Detail
For more than two years, UA dissected and studied multiple vintage Neve 80 series consoles and their components — poring over original service manuals and gaining crucial insight into its Class A transformer/transistor circuitry. UA's team of engineers impeccably emulated all of the original hardware's nonlinearities and clipping characteristics, yielding results that are virtually indistinguishable from the original console.
“Switching DAWs is a big undertaking, but I can definitely see LUNA finding a place in people’s workflows. I love Ravel, Moog Minimoog, and Neve Summing — plus it works seamlessly with Apollo.”
“LUNA's integration with my Apollos lets me forget that I'm using a computer to make music. The crazy-low latency workflow of LUNA has further blurred the line between production and mixing for me — with LUNA, I can just make records.”

Rich and fat.
There's a good reason Neve is a "household name" in recording.
This emulation is a prime example of that.
Density, cohesion, weight, punch...it's all there, and makes a difference.
I was using this on a Zeppelin-esque track and it sounded great with an overall polised quality, but ended up liking the API Summing character better for this particular track...that all said, BUY BOTH!
I summed a group of guitars through this and it added the heft and lost the fizziness they were recorded with. Made mixing them in a breeze.
The finisher for me.
This is the glue that brings it all together for me. Just compliments the mix so well.
this adds a noticeable depth to any mix. it isn’t just applying saturation either, like other console emulations. this, along with the other extensions have me reconsidering my main daw for mixing.
Really nice what is added to my mixes. I could noticed right away the tone, depth, and vibe just leveling for a rough mix. Just great!
Vintage, warm, beautiful. Really adds a nice colour to bus tracks
Works great to glue everything together
Magically glueing everything together with nice coloration!
Excellent! Like glue for your audio
It´s like LOCTITE for your audio. LOCTITE with a Neve flavor!
All mixes are more sparated and very “in your face”…good job guys!
Completed the Package
I have the Neve channel strip and was planning on the addition of Neve Summing to complete the setup. Wow! This is quite a change. Some of my professional mixing colleagues are stunned just how "analog" it sounds in the box. Nice!
Cool sounds and options
Sounds cool and doesn’t use a ton of cpu on m1. I like the impedance switching to really drive it on drums and vocals. I use it a lot and really dig the sound
A Difference Maker.
After having sometime with this plug. It’s definitely in the process now. I’ll mix it as good as I can first in Reason and then bounce it down and head into Luna just to get the glue and polish that the Neve Summing is giving.. Then ideally, I’ll hand it off to my favorite mastering engineer. I do wish it would make its way to VST format somehow to keep it all in Reason but in the meantime I’ve found a viable solution to implement it. Whatever magic is underneath the hood, it does indeed make a difference.
Makes that little extra flavor
This one works so well with the Studer and it makes that little extra flavor that puts beautiful color on my mixes in Luna.
Sounds pretty amazing!
This is one powerful tool! I don't own an outboard summing unit- but i have used them! So, my first idea was to send a mix/master to some mastering engineer friends who DO use the real vintage units to see what they thought.
Only one of the three could tell that i hadn't sent my mixes to be mastered by one of the others! Hahaha
Passed my test with flying colors!
Great summing plugin
Works great I use it on all my mixes provides punch depth and clarity
Awesome neve summing . What I wonderful color
Makes my mixes sound better
What does it do, really?
I haven't yet heard any improvement to my mix after using the Neve Summing. Is it just hype? Well... back to mixing in Logic.
