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.

      Sounds just like the real thing.

      I heard and used the analog mic pre on many records and it’s tough to tell the plugin apart. The warmth and clarity and color is awesome.

      Just love it

      Since getting this plugin I have been using it on everything. I haven’t found anything yet that it doesn’t sound good on
      Adds a wonderful richness without even tweaking any settings
      Absolutely love this this beauty

      Totally recommendable

      clean, nice and with the dose of fair warming

      That Neve sound with less DLS precessing.

      I love using this plug in when recording with several mics. It saves more DLS power so you can use more UAD plug-ins.

      Little beast

      Really like this plugin and its simplicity. It has a sweet rolling and taming characteristic that you hear especially on its cumulative effect. I just wish UA will release a version with GANG CONTROL and AUTO GAIN MATCHING (or shift click or whatever), please do it !!

      Great flavor, no bloat

      The 1073 light! I like this one on Unison slots, or on console inserts. Just the right touch of character, whether on mics or in post.

      Holy smokes, I mean, seriously.

      How much difference can it make, right? I haven't found anything yet that it doesn't improve in almost exactly the ways you'd like it to be improved. If you're trying to record stuff that has a tangible, palpable audio quality... the sound of well designed circuits working, things heating up and melting together, then save up a few bucks, get this and put it on everything. Even food. If I could put this on my car, I would.
