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 1290TM 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 — Simplified

The Neve Preamp — Simplified

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.

      This stands above the rest!

      I've tried countless other Neve Preamp emulations from other companies and this one, mixed with the unison technology is just miles above the others!

      Good value

      To my ear this one was the cleanest sounding pre to print with, at least in this digital world, and at that price it was a great value.

      Magical

      I have my Shure SM7B going into a Soyuz Launcher and record with Neve Preamp. The combination is just magical, being that the Neve is transparent helps keep the creaminess of the Soyuz without distorting my vocals.

      Outrageously Transparent

      This is an excellent plugin. This Neve Preamp is clear, to the point, and honest. Theres something beautiful and simple about how this preamp sounds and performs. I love the simplicity it provides. I also love the fact that i can drive the mic pre and dial back the output to get the level i want as well as a smooth and warm saturation. I highly recommend this plugin. its a perfect preamp on a budget.

      Can’t say enough

      This thing is the real deal. If you only need the pre and no EQ from the 1073 this is your ticket. You get the smoothness of the low-end and a little bump and grit in the mids. This thing also will add a little more aggression and sustain to bass guitars.
