The Neve 1081 channel module was first produced in 1972 by Neve, and was used to provide the mic/line amp and EQ sections in consoles such as the Neve 8048. The Neve 1081 has been used by artists ranging from The Rolling Stones to The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The Neve 1081 channel module is a four-band EQ with high and low cut filters that feature two parametric midrange bands, with "Hi-Q" selections for tighter boosts or cuts. Both the high and low shelf filters have selectable frequencies and may be switched to bell filters. The Neve 1081 EQ is a five frequency (3.3, 4.7, 6.8, 10, 15kHz) high shelf/bell EQ, a ten frequency (1.5, 1.8, 2.2, 2.7, 3.3, 3.9, 4.7, 5.6, 6.8 , 8.2kHz) hi-mid parametric EQ with two Q types, a ten frequency (220, 270, 330, 390, 470, 560, 680, 820, 1000,1200Hz) low-mid parametric EQ with two Q types, a five frequency (33, 56, 100, 180, 330Hz) low shelf/bell EQ plus a five frequency (27, 47, 82, 150, 270Hz) high pass filter and five frequency (18, 12, 8.2, 5.6, 3.9kHz) low pass filter.

A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).
