As mentioned earlier, AMS Neve continues to carry on the tradition of the brand’s original designs and makes a modern version of the 1081 to spec. There are several different versions of the 1081, which makes it easy to find one that will fit into the racks for your studio space. AMS Neve makes the horizontal Neve 1081 CH, the vertical Neve 1081 CV, and the micro processor-based Neve 1081R Mono, Neve 1081 AIR Mono, and Neve 4081.
There are other current manufacturers aside from AMS Neve making mic pres/EQs based on the 1081. BAE Audio's 1032 has frequency points that are inspired by the 1081 and features Class A transformer-coupled circuits. Great River's EQ-2NV has a topology based on the Neve 1081 and 1083 and allows for digital control over analog components. One other modern example is the Vintech X81 mic pre/EQ, which utilizes the mic pre of their X73 and a four band EQ that is similar to the 1081.
In addition to all these physical recreations of the Neve 1081, there are some high quality plug-in emulations of the mic pre classic. Universal Audio has a fantastic version of the 1081 Classic Console EQ that allows you to capture the punch and presence of the Neve original.
Waves Audio also makes the V-EQ4, which features the classic 4-band EQ and offers smooth, responsive performance.
