Neve 8801 Channel Strip
The 8801’s signal path consists of our extremely high-quality Neve mic preamp, high and low pass filters, four bands of highly musical equalisation, a compressor, gate, dynamics side chain and an insert point. The order of the signal path can be easily modified as the producer requires.
The filter section and/or the equalisation section can even be routed to the dynamics side chain to tailor the dynamics response of any input signal. An optional Neve-designed analogue-to-digital converter accommodates all standard sample rates up to 192kHz, as well as direct-to-DSD conversion. In listening tests, many engineers and producers preferred the sound of these Neve-designed converters to standalone converters costing more than the entire 8801 unit.
Neve's proprietary Recall software (Mac- and PC-compatible) allows the 8801 to be seamlessly integrated with workstations, providing instantaneous recall of all external device settings. An essential tool for creativity, Recall combines the flexibility of a computer-based system with the power and sound quality of genuine Neve design. Quite simply, the 8801 is the most convenient way to give any serious studio the ultimate Neve analogue sound.

I love this channel strip! The flexibility is impressive as well. The preamp is beautiful and deserves a great microphone but can make a not so great one sing better. The EQ is second to none in my opinion it’s very musical and easy to dial in subtleties to surgically changing sound. The compressor is the same way. Paired with an 1176 compressor turns this thin into a
Monster! Just love my 8801!
