One of the most beloved console emulated to the core — Neve 80 Series Console and 80 Series Mix Buss emulations
Lindell Plugins is proud to bring you their exacting emulation of original 1073/1084/2254 channel modules and the 1272 line amplifier buss module into your DAW. One of the classic hand-wired mixing consoles made by Neve Electronics, the 8028 is a truly magical desk on which countless seminal records have been cut in the last 30 years; think Queen, David Bowie, Nirvana, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and Slipknot –– the sound of this analog legend is nothing short of extraordinary. In Lindell 80 Series, you will find aggression and power to make your records sound as analog as possible.
Lindell 80 Series Channel and Buss Overview:
Dating back to 1969 when 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. It is 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.
“With warm lows and smooth highs, this plugin easily became one of my favorite console emulations! It’s extremely simple to use, has character, and sounds really good! This is one of those plugins that really can make a difference. I love it!”
- Eryck Bry (music producer, recording and mixing engineer), 2019
Lindell 80 Series brings the sound of this desk into the digital domain. Track, mix, and master your records with this particular Neve flavor and achieve the thick tone only made possible by the individual components found in the original channel strip.
To complete their new console offering, Lindell Audio has licensed the patent-pending Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) from Brainworx in order to provide an authentic analog experience in the digital realm. Mix your songs with 32 different channels in order to replicate the various component tolerances found in the original hardware. As part of the Plugin Alliance family, Lindell are also offering a workflow and feature set with this new TMT console that will feel very familiar to all users of the current bx_console... line.

About Lindell Audio (www.lindellaudio.se)
Sweden’s Lindell Audio was founded in 2010 by Bohus Sound Studios resident producer Tobias Lindell. Having set out to design high-quality hardware recording equipment to satisfy his own way of working by developing hitherto unavailable functions and user interfaces, introducing the Lindell Plugins product line based on its hardware designs as a joint venture with LSR Audio later lent that same authentic attention to audio quality and efficient workflow to direct DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) usage.
