Neve® 33609® / 33609SE® Compressor
Neve 33609 / 33609SE Compressor
My drum comps
My go-to default drum compressor, having used everything else!! Snares pop, bass drums thud like I want it too. Excellent.
The "Good" button
I'm mixing my new album "Fathers and Sons" with Bay Area engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Green Day, and yes, Huey Lewis). We recorded in the studio and are mixing in-the-box and recently made sure we have the same UAD plug-ins. The Neve 33609 / 33609SE was in his arsenal, so I got one too. We're using it on the master buss of some of the more dense songs and also the drum buss for some. It really glues everything together nicely. We're just bumping it a bit and every time we insert it, things just sound better. It sounds and feels like an analogue compressor. It's liking hitting the "good" button!
I always loved to use a 33609 when mixing on API and SSL consoles, the added low mid " weight" seemed to compliment those consoles ( it was too much when mixing on older 80 series Neves, which already had a similar sound ) and I'm loving this plugin for mixes " in the box ".

Good color compressor
This plugin not only compress the signal. It has limiter and also nice warm and colour to the signal.
My go-to stereo compressor
The 33609 works really well on many stereo sources, especially on piano and stereo acoustic guitars. It also helps to glue things together on sub mixes and the mix bus.
Adds subtle depth
Putting this on an aux stereo buss like Andrew Schepps demonstraed with his rear buss trick gave our song a huge presence boost without increasing volume. Very very impressed and is now our go to!
Very good compressor! Neve 33609 buss compressor makes it possible to do better mixing.
33609 is 33609
I envy this plug-in. It is so exciting.
Just like the Hardware
I was lucky enough to get this for €49, and it has turned out to be my most used compressor now, and I have nearly all compressors from UAD, it sits on all my mixbusses, it's exact like the hardware well done UAD.
Excelente sonido analogico, muy bueno.....!!!!!
UAD NEVE 33609 POWER HOUSE COMPRESSOR
If you spend a little time A/B ing The Neve 33609 Compressor with the Top 10 compressors you'll find it in the top three. It's Stereo! ...as in... has a mono/ stereo switch. It's a tick tight in the stereo field but will take a lot with out any noticeable change...more than anything except the UAD SSL G. These 2 are my favorite Master Bus Compressors. The 33609 has a pinch of warm character which you'll love. If you ever use the Real Deal there's a sweet spot with how it behaves with 100 engaged at 1.5 : 1. If you need your mix to sound like a real analog device was in-line .....This is THE ONE! Get to know this puppy, you'll be glad you did. I love it on the Group Bus for Drums too. It's GOOD TO GO! - GILROY
the perfect glue
This is my default for acoustic guitars. Two of them, stereo on a Bus, then put the 33609 over it, and listen the magic...
This is like no other compressor. I have found that the 33609 reveals and otherwise unobtainable energy in my tracks, and because of that I can't live without this plug-in now. I'm struck by how amazing it is that UA has delivered so much capability into my studio; that allows me to finally realize the sound I’ve always dreamed about.
Seriously, thank you and WELL DONE!
Warmth and thickness
It just sounds so good !
Buss compression one stop. Excellent presets. You'll put it on everything. I love it and so will you!
Versatile and exceeds expectation
Was immediately impressed with this compressor. Becoming familiar with this was a breeze. Makes drums sound incredible. Parallel all day.
We were WOWED how it glued everything together on the Instrument buss...
Very nice mastering compressor
I`m using it to master an album. Tiny bits of compression and it`s doing everything I need.
I`m liking it waaay better than the Shadow Hills plug-in.
