The Neve 88 Series is a paragon of large-format analog console design. Introduced in 2001, the 88 Series is renowned for its startling depth, airiness, and clarity — deftly encompassing the best of all Neve designs that came before it. Not surprisingly, Neve 88 Series consoles are found in some of the world’s finest studios and scoring stages, including Skywalker Ranch and Capitol.

Now for the first time, you can track through an authentic emulation of this modern masterpiece — complete with its famous mic/line preamp, cut filters, dynamics, four-band EQ, plus post-fader output amplifier — exclusively for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces.

Universal Audio’s all-new Neve 88RS Channel Strip for Apollo and UAD-2 precisely emulates the unique circuit behaviors of Neve’s flagship large-format mixer. Modeling the mic/line preamp, cut filters, dynamics, four-band EQ, plus post-fader output amplifier with fanatical detail, the Neve 88RS Channel Strip plug-in replicates the luxurious, high-fidelity sound of Neve's ultimate mixing console.

Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the Neve 88RS Channel Strip Collection gives you all of the 88RS mic/line preamp’s impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors that have made it the modern benchmark in analog preamp design. The secret is Unison’s bi-directional control and communication from the Neve 88RS plug-in to the physical mic preamps in Apollo. And the results are nothing short of spectacular.

The 88RS is outfitted with broad range, minimum-phase 12 dB high and low cut filters to shape any signal during tracking or mixdown. In addition, Neve's famed Formant Spectrum four-band EQ, perfect for ambitious tonal strokes or precise surgery, offers classic Neve color on any source.

With versatile and musical VCA-type limit/compress and gate/expand modules, the 88RS’ dynamics sections can precisely tailor any source; transparently smoothing a lead vocal, bringing excitement and immediacy to a percussion bus, or even providing frequency-dependent gain reduction for de-essing.

Of course, the Neve 88RS Channel Strip Collection isn’t just for Apollo owners. UAD-2 owners can use the Neve 88RS Channel Strip for amplification, EQ tone shaping, dynamics control, or adding the Neve sheen to any source, without going outside the box.

With the Neve 88RS Channel Strip's complete console channel emulation, plus the included DSP-lite Neve 88RS Channel Strip Legacy, you can craft your projects with the stunning analog clarity of the 88RS.
