Combining the iconic sounds of both the 1073 and 1290 modules the Neve Preamp plug-in promises all the bandwidth and attitude of Rupert Neve’s original hardware design.


Tracking can be performed in real time for a vintage analog channel with low DSP usage. UA’s Unison is also supported allowing interface users access to the Neve preamp’s impedance, gain staging, and circuit behaviours.

For UAD-2 hardware users the plug-in can be used for mixing and tone shaping in the box, and the low DSP usage means it can be placed across multiple channels.

  • An authentic end-to-end circuit emulation of the legendary class-A, Neve mic preamp, exclusively for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces
  • Combines sonic attributes and features of both the coveted 1073 and 1290 designs
