The authentic Neve preamp sound, right at your fingertips.

The Neve mic preamp is an undisputed audio masterpiece, adding genuine Neve sheen, richness, and thick musical detail to any signal that passes through it. The pinnacle of Neve preamp design is the classic 1073 module with EQ, but Neve also briefly produced the 1290 module — a rare, preamp-only version of the 1073.

Now, you can get the clarity, grit, and harmonically complex class‑A saturation of this amazing mic preamplifier in a simple two-knob plug-in that’s perfect for UA Audio Interface owners.

Now You Can:

Get the world’s only authentic plug-in emulation of the legendary class-A, Neve mic preamp

Record "through" the iconic Neve preamp in real time using UA Audio Interfaces, with low DSP use

Color your tracks with musical saturation and complex nonlinear circuit behaviors

Control UA Audio Interface mic preamp gain staging and impedance directly from the Neve Preamp plug-in via Unison technology

The Neve Preamp plug-in combines sonic attributes of both the 1073 and 1290 designs and provides all the bandwidth and attitude of Neve's original hardware, as heard on countless classic recordings. By thoroughly modeling the dual-stage "Red Knob" preamp and output amplifier with obsessive detail, the Neve Preamp plug-in replicates the sound and behavior of the original preamp with stunning accuracy.

Like the original hardware, the Neve Preamp plug-in adds characteristic color and grit. Just drop it into the Unison slot of your UA Audio Interface’s Console software to add instant character to vocals and acoustic guitars, or treat synths, drums, and bass with the complex, dynamic clipping behavior that can only come from Neve.

Unison Technology for UA Audio Interfaces

Unison Technology for UA Audio Interfaces

Harnessing UA’s Unison technology, the Neve Preamp plug-in blurs the lines between analog and digital, giving you all of the legendary hardware’s impedance, gain staging “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors. The secret is Unison’s bi-directional control and communication from the Neve Preamp plug-in to the digitally controlled mic preamps in UA Audio Interfaces.

Of course, the Neve Preamp plug-in isn’t just for UA Audio Interface owners. UAD-2 hardware owners can employ the Neve Preamp plug-in for mixing and tone shaping — without ever leaving the box. Thanks to its lower DSP usage, you can easily place Neve Preamp plug-in instances across multiple channels, turning your favorite DAW into a classic Neve console.

      Great sounding plugin

      Use this plugin/unison for my woiceover work, just adds a little extra "crispness" to the sound, and used in combination with compressor, de-esser and EQ you can really get som nice vokals with this plugin.

      Excellent Pre Amp Modell

      I like the openness of sound you can get with the Neve Preamp. Drop the Neve Pre on a Chanel and you immediately get depth in your Mix. Well Done :)

      Just adds that (Neve)-extra

      It makes every recording sounding better.
      Bolder, lighter, fatter, more detailed.
      Depending on the character of the recording....
      It seems to actually listen to the music! That’s amazing actually!

      ..making it a perfect producer companion.

      Doesnt sound like a neve 1073

      This doesnt sound like neve 1073 with eq. Its mid heavy and sounds nice. Neve 1073 hs better highs and sounds better overall. Neve preamp hs it uses. I use it for woodwinds and brass more. 1073 for vocals

      Better Than I Thought

      Ive used the real analog unit many times and comparing it to the plugin, it actually sounds very close.. For being a plugin, it has a better sound than I thought. Great plugin!

      A Disappointment

      I have used to work with the real one. The plugin had excited me. But at my sound it doesn't create the difference as I dreamed.
