Neve 1064 (#1)
Reid: IMHO the best of all the Class-A Neve modules. Better low end and silkier highs than the 1073. Rupert picks the frequencies for you and really nailed this one. Classic Neve 80 Series 3-band EQ. Amazing vintage transformers. Everything sounds better through these things, even with the EQ flat.
HPF filter: 45/70/160/360. Leave this off (unless you’re making a telephone eq fx)
Low EQ: 35/60/100/220.
Mid EQ: 0.7/1.2/2.4/3.6/7k.
Hi EQ: 10k shelf.
The Hi/Lo switch is in the Hi position.
MIX: run your mix through a pair of these. +1 @ 60, +1 @ 10k. Sometimes 35 is the magic tho.
VOCAL: same as above, sometimes you want to cut 360. Sometimes +2 on the high.
DRUMS: these into your drum buss, you’re welcome.
GUITARS: Push 7k and 100 for rock. Try 700 for vibe. This is the one time you might want to use the HPF
EVERYTHING ELSE: let’s face it. It’s Neve transformer gooey goodness. There’s a reason I own 24 channels of this.
Vintage Neve Modules.
Transformers: Hell yes!
Character: Thickness. Glue.
