Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection

The Only End-to-End Neve 1073 Circuit Emulation

The Only End-to-End Neve 1073 Circuit Emulation

Universal Audio’s all-new Neve 1073 plug-in for Apollo and UAD-2 provides all the features, unique circuit behaviors, and coveted sound of Neve's original hardware design. By modeling the dual-stage "Red Knob" preamp, revered three-band EQ, and post-fader output amplifier with obsessive detail, the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ replicates the experience of the original 1970s hardware with stunning accuracy. Like the hardware, the new Neve 1073 plug-in incorporates all 10 clipping points from the preamp and EQ circuitry, delivering trademark clarity, grit, and harmonically rich class‑A saturation.

Unison Technology for Apollo

Unison Technology for Apollo

Harnessing UA’s Unison technology, the Neve 1073 plug-in blurs the lines between analog and digital, giving you all of the 1073 preamp’s impedance, gain staging “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors that have made it legendary among the audio faithful. The secret is Unison’s bi-directional control and communication from the 1073 plug-in to the digitally controlled mic preamps in Apollo. With Unison, the Apollo preamp changes to the Neve 1073's physical input impedance, allowing both "Lo" (300 Ω) and "Hi" (1200 Ω) impedance setting options. This provides the 1073's full gain and tonal range to your favorite mics.

UAD-2 hardware owners can employ the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection for mixing, tone shaping, or simply adding sheen and bite to vocals, guitars, drums and more — without ever leaving the box. To get you started, there are artist presets from renowned 1073 users such as Ed Cherney, Joe Chiccarelli, Jacquire King, Ryan Hewitt, David Isaac, Ryan West, and more. UAD-2 power users can place Neve 1073 instances across multiple channels, turning their favorite DAW into a classic Neve console.

      Saturation Grrrrr

      The Neve 1073 Preamp has a super sweet saturation, rich and crisp at the same time. Beautiful for modern indie rock vocals with attitude.

      Made my WA8000 sound just like the C800G

      Perfect! When using in the Unison slot it brings out the quality and sound of the $1,500 Warm Audio WA8000 making it sound so close to the $15,000 Sony C800G you can't even tell the difference.

      Beautiful, bright and clear sound. Tastes like KFC chicken with a light sauce.
      Lovely vintage sound, goes great with my '62 Telcaster.
      Universal preamp and equalizer that I use in absolutely all projects. From funk to hip-hop.

      A Stellar Recreation of a Classic

      The UAD Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection is a remarkable piece of audio software that stands out in the crowded market of digital plugins. Universally acclaimed for its faithful recreation of the classic Neve 1073 preamp and EQ, it offers an unparalleled level of warmth and depth to your recordings.

      The first thing to note about the UAD Neve 1073 is its sound quality. The plugin does an exceptional job of emulating the rich, harmonic character and analog warmth that the original Neve 1073 is known for. Whether you're tracking vocals, guitars, or drums, this plugin adds a beautiful coloration that can make any source sound better.

      The EQ section of the UAD Neve 1073 is another highlight. It offers a broad range of tonal shaping options, from subtle enhancements to more drastic changes. The high and low shelving EQs, along with the mid-band, provide a musical touch that can help any mix stand out.

      The user interface is another strong point. It's intuitive and easy to use, even for those who are not familiar with the original hardware. The controls are straightforward, and the visual feedback is helpful in understanding how the plugin affects the sound.

      In terms of performance, the UAD Neve 1073 is efficient and reliable. It runs smoothly on the UAD platform, and the DSP usage is reasonable considering the quality of the emulation.

      The only potential downside is the price, which might be a bit steep for some users. However, considering the quality of the plugin and the sonic possibilities it offers, it's a worthy investment for any serious audio engineer or producer.

      In conclusion, the UAD Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection is a top-notch plugin that faithfully recreates the sound of one of the most revered preamps and EQs in history. It's a powerful tool that can add a unique character and warmth to your recordings, making it a must-have in any digital audio workstation.

      Very very good!

      I first tried the Neve 1073 years ago. One of my favorites.
      The GUI is outdated. 15 years ago it was OK with the screen resolution, but not today. I wouldn't complain if the plug was $ 20, but it is expensive. So - it's not hard to program a newer GUI... Still 5 star - but fix the GUI.

      A must have for rock recording and mixing

      I own 2 1073 eq and preamps and I have to say this is one of the few plugins that has been able to come close to the sound of my hardware. its ever so slight differences are only really noticeable when I sit and listen very critically. other than that I have zero problem recording thru this or mixing a record with it.

      I do not see the relationship with a NEVE 1073 hardware apart from the visual!

      Have you compared mixing a song with 24 NEVE 1073 UAD and 24 NEVE 1073 hardware? there is really no relation... and anyone blind test will choose the hardware version...
      I'm not saying that your emulation is not usable, but looks nothing like what the original can do...
