blackbird neve channel strip kit plugins

Different by design

BB N105 is the only channel strip plugin of its kind, modeled after the only analog console of its kind — Blackbird Studio's iconic Neve® 8078.

This highly-modified console has not only birthed countless hits but also holds some of the most legendary sonics in the history of recorded music. Now it's yours forever in powerful plugin form.

The sound behind countless chart-topping records

A more realistic analog experience

Our engineers developed a next-gen proprietary sampling method that models analog hardware with never-before-heard depth, detail, and clarity.

We model the full analog range from 10Hz - 96kHz, giving you the truest analog experience available in a plugin. A sonic difference that is both heard and felt.

What pros are saying about BB N105

When I saw that KIT modeled one of my all-time favorite circuits and added the mic/line input character of that desk, I had to have it.

Great bite in the mids that isn’t harsh. Most other Neve® emulations haven’t nailed this from the hardware, they’re either scratchy or marshmallowy.

With BB N105, I feel like I have my console in front of me, but on steroids. On top of that I can use oversampling. I literally put it on everything.

BB N105 is now my favorite channel! The overdrive is especially useful. I’ve worked on the console at Blackbird and this plugin is extremely accurate!

This has quickly become not only my favorite Neve® channel strip, but also one of my absolute favorite saturation plugins!

Rich Tozzoli

(Grammy-nominated Producer/Mixer/Composer)

Growing up on a Neve® 8058 console, I know what a good emulation should sound like. BB N105 is in some ways better than the hardware. It’s on every session I do now.

Built-in option to select Mic or Line input stage.
Over 120 mix ready presets to get you started.
Built using our award winning FRM technology.
