Lindell Audio 80 Series: A Classic Console Emulation Plugin

If you are looking for a plugin that can recreate the sound and vibe of one of the most legendary analog mixing consoles ever made, you might want to check out Lindell Audio 80 Series. This plugin is an exacting emulation of the original Neve 1073 and 1084 preamp/EQs, the 2254 limiter/compressor, and the 1272 line amplifier module, for your DAW. Each of these modules is drawn from the hand-wired 8028, a truly magical Neve desk on which countless seminal records have been cut in the last 30 years. Think names like Queen, David Bowie, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slipknot and more.

The sound of this analog legend is nothing short of extraordinary, and in the Lindell 80 Series, you will find that same full-bodied aggressive power, to help make your records sound as analog as possible. In this article, we will take a closer look at the features and benefits of this plugin, and how you can use it to enhance your mixes.

A Classic Console with a Cult-like Following

Dating back to 1969 when it was first brought to the market, the 80 series analog mixing desks attained somewhat of a cult-like status due to their uniqueness and rarity. Known for their breathtaking depth, pristine high end and rich definition, the individual modules that comprise these desks have stood the test of time, and have inspired countless high-end clones. It's no wonder that institutions like Sound City Studios, Oscilloscope Labs, Electric Lady Studios and Sphere Studios have relied on the sound and features offered by this desk. Lindell 80 Series Channel brings the sound of this desk into the digital domain.

An Entire Family of Neve Processors

On its own, the Neve 1073 is one of the most popular preamp/EQs ever made, capable of staggeringly beautiful high end boosts and shockingly full and useful low end amplification. Add to that faithful recreation of the even more flexible and precise 1084 EQ, which has legions of its own fans, and you'd already have a plugin that's worth more than the price of admission. But the 80 series adds on even more, with the 2245 limiter/compressor for smooth and creamy dynamic control, the 1272 line amplifier for full, rich harmonics, and a special Buss mode for all the Neve character without all the bells and whistles.

The plugin offers a channel strip interface that lets you access all these modules in one convenient place. You can switch between the 1073 and 1084 EQs with a simple click, adjust the input gain and output level knobs to drive the preamp saturation and output volume, engage or bypass the limiter/compressor with a single button, and choose between four different modes: Channel (with EQ), Channel (without EQ), Buss (with EQ) and Buss (without EQ). You can also solo or mute each module individually, or link them together for stereo operation.

An Updated Icon

To complete their new console offering, Lindell Audio has licensed the patented Tolerance Modeling Technology from Brainworx to provide an authentic analog experience in the digital realm. This technology simulates the natural variations and tolerances of electronic components found in analog hardware, giving each channel a slightly different sound and feel. You can mix your songs using 32 distinct channels to replicate the various component tolerances found in the original hardware.

The plugin also supports up to 4x oversampling for high-quality processing, MIDI learn functionality for easy parameter mapping, undo/redo history for hassle-free editing, A/B comparison for quick reference, copy/paste settings for fast workflow, and resizable GUI for optimal viewing. The plugin is available in VST, VST3, AU and AAX formats for both Windows and Mac platforms.


Lindell Audio 80 Series is a plugin that delivers the sound and character of one of the most revered analog consoles in history. Whether you want to add some warmth and punch to your drums, some sparkle and clarity to your vocals, some weight and presence to your bass, or some glue and cohesion to your mix bus, this plugin can do it all. With its faithful emulation of the Neve modules, its intuitive interface, its advanced features and its affordable price tag ($249), this plugin is a must-have for any producer or engineer who wants to bring some analog magic to their digital productions.

Here are some additional topics that you can cover in your article: How to Use the Lindell 80 Series Plugin

The Lindell 80 Series plugin is very easy to use, thanks to its simple and intuitive interface. Here are some basic steps to get you started:

  • Load the plugin on the track or bus that you want to process. You can use it on individual instruments, vocals, groups, or the master bus.

  • Select the mode that suits your needs. You can choose between Channel (with EQ), Channel (without EQ), Buss (with EQ) and Buss (without EQ). The Channel modes are designed for single tracks, while the Buss modes are optimized for buses or the master bus.

  • Adjust the input gain knob to set the level of the signal going into the plugin. You can use the VU meter to monitor the input level. You can also use the phase invert button to flip the polarity of the signal if needed.

  • Choose between the 1073 and 1084 EQs by clicking on their respective buttons. The 1073 EQ has three bands: a high shelf, a mid band, and a low shelf. The 1084 EQ has four bands: a high shelf, a high mid band, a low mid band, and a low shelf. Both EQs also have a high pass filter and a low pass filter.

  • Tweak the EQ knobs to shape the tone of your signal. You can boost or cut each band by up to 18 dB, and adjust the frequency and bandwidth (Q) of each band. You can also bypass the EQ section by clicking on the EQ button.

  • Engage the limiter/compressor by clicking on the LC button. The limiter/compressor is based on the Neve 2254, which is known for its smooth and musical sound. You can adjust the threshold, ratio, attack, release, and makeup gain knobs to control the amount and character of compression. You can also bypass the limiter/compressor section by clicking on the LC button again.

  • Adjust the output level knob to set the level of the signal going out of the plugin. You can use the VU meter to monitor the output level. You can also use the mute and solo buttons to isolate each module for fine-tuning.

  • Enjoy the sound of one of the most legendary analog consoles ever made!

Some Tips and Tricks for Using the Lindell 80 Series Plugin

The Lindell 80 Series plugin is a versatile tool that can be used for various purposes and genres. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get the most out of it:

  • Use the Channel mode with EQ on drums to add some punch and presence. Try boosting some highs and lows with the 1073 EQ, or adding some midrange bite with the 1084 EQ. Use the limiter/compressor to tame any peaks and glue the drums together.

  • Use the Channel mode without EQ on vocals to add some warmth and body. Try driving the input gain knob to saturate the preamp and add some harmonics. Use the limiter/compressor to smooth out any dynamics and bring out some details.

  • Use the Buss mode with EQ on guitars to add some sparkle and clarity. Try cutting some lows and boosting some highs with either EQ. Use the limiter/compressor to balance out any levels and add some punch.

  • Use the Buss mode without EQ on bass to add some weight and presence. Try driving the input gain knob to saturate the preamp and add some grit. Use the limiter/compressor to control any peaks and add some sustain.

  • Use either Buss mode on your master bus to add some glue and cohesion to your mix. Try using a gentle compression setting with a low ratio and a high threshold. Use either EQ to fine-tune your mix balance and enhance your overall tone.

A Comparison with Other Neve Emulation Plugins

  • Waves Scheps 73: This plugin is an emulation of Neves 1073 console module, with some additional features. It offers a mid-side mode for stereo processing, a variable high pass filter, and an insert point for adding other plugins in the chain.

  • Softube Console 1: This plugin is a hardware/software hybrid system that emulates various analog consoles, including the Neve 88RS. It offers a dedicated hardware controller that lets you adjust the parameters of the plugin with physical knobs and buttons.
