The Neve 8801 Channel Strip’s evident craftsmanship stems from its hand-built and hand-wired components. These parts, meticulously assembled, produce a quality and versatility for Neve are so famous.

The strip’s signal bath is made of a mic preamp whose excellence is typical of Neve, high and low pass filters, four bands of highly musical equalisation, a compressor, gate, dynamics side chain and an insert point; all of which is easily customisable according to the producer’s preference.

All standard sample rates up to 192kH can be accommodated by an optional Neve-designed analogue-to-digital converter (as well as direct-to-DSD conversion). Listening tests have proven these Neve-designed converters to be preferred by many engineers and producers to standalone converters that cost more than the entire Neve 8801 unit. The filter section and/or the equalisation section can also be routed to the dynamics side chain to customise the dynamics response of any input.

Simply put: the Neve 8801 Channel Strip is the easiest way to give a serious studio the ultimate in Neve analogue sound.
