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)

I was using the 610 pre, very nice pre too, but something was missing. I lot of people talk fantastic thing about this Neve, and I can see know why. Fat tone just with engage it, very nice EQ, and trust me, it’s a game changer. Don’t think to much and get it. Thanks UAD gracias
This is why I love UAD
No other word, perfect for every tracks.
Nice colour and sound
The options for drive and EQ can offer everything from a very subtle 'thickening' and warmth or greater clarity around the upper mids and tops to outrageous crunch and musical overdrive/distortion. A definite and immediate 'go to', whatever the source.
This is insane!!!!!
probably one of my favorite plugins ever! don't hesitate, just go for it!!!
It's so perfect !
korean love neve
this is amazing...!!!! i love it..!!
This preamp is simply Amazing! I had recently purchased a Neve clone preamp and although it gave a good sound, as soon as I demo'd the Neve 1073 from UA, there was no competition. The EQ that it comes with is also awesome. The best plugin I have purchased ever.
Another must have!!!!!
An amazing emulation of an iconic preamp and eq
Very smooth vocals
Sounds fantastic using almost every session. Very distinct sound from the unison and 610. Perfect for rnb/afrobeat/latin/rap vocals almost every time.
Vox in a box
Silky smooth and subtle
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.
Best vocal I've recorded
The title speaks for itself. Highly recommended UAD software
It is a real Neve 1073!!!!
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.
