SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • March 20th, 2018 — Universal Audio is proud to release the Neve Preamp plug-in — giving users the clarity, grit, and complex class-A saturation of the legendary Neve mic preamplifier in a simple two-knob plug-in that’s perfect for UA Audio Interface owners.
The Neve microphone preamp is an undisputed audio masterpiece, adding the genuine Neve sheen, richness, and thick musical detail to any signal that passes through it. The pinnacle of Neve preamp design is the classic 1073 module with EQ, but Neve also briefly produced the 1290 module — a rare, preamp-only version of the 1073.
The Neve Preamp plug-in combines sonic attributes and features of both the coveted 1073 and 1290 designs and provides all the bandwidth and attitude of Rupert Neve's original hardware design, as heard on countless classic recordings. By thoroughly modeling the dual-stage "Red Knob" preamp and output amplifier with obsessive detail, the Neve Preamp plug-in replicates the sound and behavior of the original preamp with stunning accuracy.
Owners of UA Audio Interfaces can now track through an iconic Neve preamp in real time, for a vintage analog channel with low DSP usage. The Neve Preamp also supports Universal Audio’s Unison™ technology, giving UA Audio Interface users the Neve preamp’s all-important impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviors that have contributed to making it a recording icon.
UAD-2 hardware owners can also employ the Neve Preamp plug-in for mixing and tone shaping — without ever leaving the box. Thanks to its lower DSP usage, you can easily place Neve Preamp plug-in instances across multiple channels, turning your favorite DAW into a classic Neve console.
