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 — 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.

Add Clarity and Color to Any Source

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 Pre-Amp Emulation

      This was the first Pre-amp/Plugin I purchased after buying my UaD interface. As someone who records mainly vocals, this thing was light years away from my previous recording method and sounds 10 times better! I’ve heard a million songs recorded on Neve boards and now I can get the same feel with a MacBook Air, Apollo Twin, and my Rode NT1. I am now convinced that UaD is home to musical mad scientists!

      Vibe, thick, Neve, beautiful

      I was skeptical at first, however, I bit the bullet and bought this. I have no regrets! It can be used on almost anything for instant neve vibe, feel and sonic character! Love it love it love it!!!

      Never despise simplicity !

      Hello ,
      This is one of the easiest plugins to use.
      Put it on your audio as an insert or in unison ,
      If this one is not the flavour you want for this particular track , then try something else , but this neve preamp is so easy that it only take 20 second to know if that's not where you wanna go... and if it is what you want , than it still did not take more time... to get closer to where you're going !
      Cooool....Ain'it ?? Fast and easy , good-sounding... well , go for it !!

      Very useful

      So useful in spot situations when you need a little extra punch. I use it a lot more than I thought I would. Easy to use

      Buy it!

      I use this simple great sounding Neve preamp on every track as if I was recording on a Neve desk. Running the Neve with Unison technology is great too, and I print the preamp on recorded tracks. This helps dial in tone making mixing easier and conserving DSP space.

      Amazing Sound!

      The preamp technology is amazing but this Neve Preamp emulation takes it to another level!

      nifty

      A nice thing. Simple, small, one job well done. Who needs more? I do. I need an equally small and simple hi-pass lo-pass filter without all the other EQ stuff. That would be my input workflow in a nutshell. Keep it up guys. Your stuff is exceptional.

      Revamp Neve Preamp! Awesome

      I like this one better than the one with the eq, it sounds alot warmer and upfront then the other one. This one with the blue face 1176 is killer on rap vocals. Just grap it and try it out.
