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.

      When you just need some color !

      When I do a Big Live Recording on a single Apollo 16 Quad and need to manage the Shark DSP. I use the Neve Preamp on almost all tracks and some legacy 1175/LA2A

      Neve Preamp

      Nice behaves very similar to original can put some nice warmth or grit into a mic recording, the progression is a little more aggressive than the original but hey NEVE all day long.

      The one. The only.

      It is definitely the most simple, and yet, one of the most deliciously perfect plugin ever.
      I use it on basically everything. From vocals to my Telecaster and even my Strike MultiPad, it is a killer solution to all things input.
      I don’t recommend it. I urge you to use it.

      Great preamp for recording classical guitar

      My Millennia TD1 preamp is my go to preamp. Nothing beats it for me. I use the DI to record electric guitars and the mic preamp for my acoustic and classical guitars.

      This summer I started to record the classical guitar that I built myself last year. It took me 12 months to build the guitar, but that’s a different story. Whatever I tried I just could not record the sound that my ears heard by using just one microphone. So I started experimenting with a Neumann TLM102 on the bridge side and a KM184 on the neck side.

      I used the Millennia for the TLM102 and a U610B Unison preamp for the KM184 on my Apollo but was not yet convinced and was about to purchase a Millennia HV3C, that has 2 of the same preamp as the TD1, until I saw a video of comparing the Neve 1073 Unison preamp with the real deal.

      So… what if I just take the Neve preamp, use the Millennia NSEQ (the TD-1 also has 2 bands of the NSEQ-2), and then into a LA2A? Put it on two channels in the Apollo and connected the guitar with the TLM102 and the KM184. Routed both channels to a bus and glued it together with a bit of compression and the result is great.

      Very natural and brings out the warm characteristics of the cedar top of the guitar.
