5-Minute UAD Tips
Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection
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
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.
Add Clarity and Color to any Source
Of course, the Neve Preamp & EQ Plug-In Collection isn’t just for Apollo owners. 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.
“The new Neve 1073 plug-in is a bigger-sounding, punchier version of the original. The addition of the fader and impedance switch offers more possibilities and an even more accurate representation of the original console.”
– Joe Chiccarelli (Jason Mraz, Beck, The Strokes, Morrissey)
“The new UAD Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection sounds amazing. Super warm, just like the real thing.”
– Trevor Lawrence Jr. (Dr. Dre, Herbie Hancock, Eminem)
“The Neve 1073 plug-in adds another dimension to the sound. The harmonics are fantastic and the output fader lets you drive the line amp harder and reduce output level – just like I do on a console. ”
– Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers)
“I really love the UAD Neve 1073 plug-in. Using it in Unison mode gives you an amazing front end when tracking vocals, guitar, and bass. If character and saturation is what you're looking for, then look no further.”
– Ivan Barias (Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Estelle)
“All my earliest sessions were recorded and mixed using Neve consoles — they were the only mic pres & EQs that I knew. The new UAD 1073 plug-in has truly captured every nuance.”
– Steve Levine (Culture Club, Beach Boys, Ziggy Marley)
“I frequently grab the Neve 1073 plug-in for bass, kicks, snares & vocals because whatever I do, that EQ always sounds musical.”
– Ryan West (Eminem, Kanye West, Kid Cudi)
“I use the Neve 1073 as both an EQ and an ‘aural exciter.’ No other EQ breathes life and excitement into a sterile DAW track or soft synth like this does.”
– Ian Boxill (Lenny White, Prince, 2Pac)
“The new UAD 1073 Collection is another welcome addition to my other Neve plug-ins! As soon as I instantiated it, everything became nice and warm.”
– David Isaac (Marcus Miller, Luther Vandross, Eric Clapton)
“I'm so happy with the Neve 1081 EQ and 1073 Preamp & EQ plug-ins. They're the closest emulations of the hardware I've heard.”
– Adam Hawkins (Twenty One Pilots, Switchfoot, Keith Urban)
“The UAD Neve 1073 is perfect for adding warmth to orchestral sounds.”
– Henry Jackman (The Da Vinci Code)
“I'm very fond of the UAD Neve 1073 and 1081. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.”
– Glenn Rosenstein (Ziggy Marley, U2)

Chewy Gain, Poingant EQ
The 1073 can make a vocal clip like fingers on a baloon, with color and grit for days. Rich, chewy harmonics. I love driving amp mics with this thing too. The EQ is surprisingly versatile - I often break out this plug just to use the EQ and grab a little extra vibe.
since I tried it nothing beats it, excellent preamp and eq plugins.

An all time Classic
The 1073 is one of the best preamp and eq of all time, used by all the best and on countless recordings. It has a beautiful warm yet articulate and clear coloration with the great signature punch that Neve is known for. I use it on a lot of configurations with a lot of mics. The eq is simple and really efficient. This plugin perfectly recreates the magic and authenticity of the original unit. That's one of the reason you have to choose UAD. It simply sounds awesome.
I love this plug in so much. I will never record drums without using this as my preamp ever again! Thanks UA for doing what you do!
R. de Keijzer
Love what this plug-in does to my mixes! Worth every penny.
Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ - My Go To
This has taken my tracking to the next level. Provides flexibility and quality that would be inaccessible for me if relying on hardware units. Thank you Universal Audio for making this classic sound affordable to the masses!
Very satisfying sense!
This is as good as easy to use!
Exactly what i expected !
I think is the most apropiate from the original pre. and eq ,great saturation !
Simple and Good
You can´t go wrong with a classic like this , put it on vocals and you never want something different...
The Classic as Plugin
I think there's not much to say - people know and love what it sounds like - rightly.
For me especially I really like how pragmatic the frequency bands got setup: Bottom of Bassdrum = 35-60hz or for snare = 220hz. Very nice for Drum Mixing:).
Go for it if you don't already have it!
This is on my vocals. Always!
Loved it so much that I made a 20€ sports bet and played until I got 1700€ to buy the hardware. The plug in is very close to the hardware tho!
Sounds great and is incredibly easy to use. Well done!
It comes pretty close to an analog equalizer.
A classic must have. Sounds great on everything!
the classic 70s sound
