Perfect when you don't need the whole 1973 channel strip (or limited dsp)
I had the Neve 1973 channel strip which sounds great but is too dsp intensive to use on multiple tracks with my little Apollo Duo. This preamp only version allows me to put it on all tracks and recreate a great Neve console (it only uses 12% dsp per instance instead of 41% for the channel strip). I can also use it in conjunction with the API preamp to get different flavors for different instruments (usually API for drums, Neve for the rest)
Excellent Quality and Color
It really adds good texture to the sound, maybe 1073 sound little more better still i liked the sound and color... very cool UAD (Y)
Very useful, a great color
Me gusta mucho lo que Neve ofrece, da un color que es agradable y poco hay que añadir después de la grabación.
Scheps You Genius
I Would Like To Thanks Andrew Scheps For Suggesting This Beautiful Preamp.
Azt kaptam amire vártam tökéletes <3
Excellent, low DSP footprint
I love this plugin for the low DSP usage and that wonderful Neve color. Simply great!
It is my go-to preamp for bass and drums. I really like what it does.
Perfect preamp for your vocal chain! This product exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this plug-in!
Perfect preamp for your vocal chain! Highly recommended.
Best plus preamp
It really adds good texture to the sound, very cool UAD thumbs up.
Is good preamp but
My opinion save and buy the neve 1073 eq is better
.... when you turn it on you can only be amazed. The voice seems come out of the monitors and stand before you. Must have absolutely.
This is one of the best preamps that I've ever used in my entire life, absolutely one of my go to's
Best for vocals
perfect plugin for vocals , superb colour
Amazing vocal pre
Very easy to use, very useful for a quick and great vocal recording. sounds so good that I absolutely go to the preamp to record vocals!
I just feel i got...
The Holiday sale has lured me into buying this,.. but sadly, after trying it on a mix, I can honestly say that i really don't feel or can hear any difference using this plug-in at all, i just feel i got ripped, this is my 1st disappointment in buying a UAD plug-in so far, Sorry.!!
Is it a Neve?
It's been a number of years since i worked a lot with the original pre's, so it's impossible to say if this anything like it, as i believe it's impossible for anyone to clarify that unless u can A/B them. I did however do a direct shoot out between the UAD and the black lion Audio B173.. Hands down, no doubts the B173 was a winner. Richer, deeper, clearer, more gain and of course that distortion. The UAD is good though, it really does do something as others here have expressed. I will use it for sure.
I bought this and was expecting some EQ type effect, a gimmick. Had just received my Apollo, bought for the conversion and DSP not the preamps. I run most things at line level. Now I run at line level, slightly hot through the mic pre with this thing and just listen for it to fatten the tone. It not an EQ effect b/c there is noise as there always will be with transistor based gain circuits. The signal the Neve Preamp puts out is strong and cuts cleanly through giving me a signal to noise ratio that is serious.
Sounds really professional
My go to pre on anything, even on main out mix.
