The class A/B Neve 33314a is essentially the same as the Neve 32264/33609, possibly the best compressor/limiter ever made. The same circuitry is wrapped in a slightly different package, with metal knobs replacing the plastic ones of the previous incarnations.

Compressor is extremely versatile, with adjustable release, ratio, threshold, and makeup gain. Separate limiter is virtually invisible, has very low distortion, with adjustable release and threshold. Linkable for stereo, with a hard bypass.

Great for setting lead vocals in the perfect sweet spot in the mix, and on most instruments, and across the mix buss. Limit and compress at the same time!

  • Separate Limit and Compress switches

Formed in 1961, Rupert Neve & Co. was focused from the beginning on designing and building the highest quality professional audio components. After establishing itself in the marketplace, and moving from Rupert's house to a newly built factory in Melbourn, England, Neve went on to create three of its most iconic products: the 2254 Compressor/Limiter in 1968, the 1073 Mic Pre/EQ in 1970, and the 1081 Mic Pre/EQ in 1973.

Aimed at the broadcast market, these units were found in numerous custom-built Neve consoles of the day. And because so much of their work was customized, there are many variants on the basic 2254 Compressor and 1073 Mic Preamp, including different form factors, cosmetics, components and features.

Using Class A discrete, transistor designs, meticulously hand-wired and built to last, Neve became the world standard for excellence in broadcast and recording studio consoles. From the small-format BCM10 and Melbourn mixers, to the large-format 80 Series, these consoles continue to be treasured today, while standalone modules from them can be found in the racks of the best studios all over the world.

To this day, the most important Neve products from the late 60s and early 70s are still manufactured according to the original specs. The reason is obvious - no other gear has that ‘Neve sound’, and there is no substitute for the real thing.
