British Iconic Sound of the 70’s

For years, top producers have coveted the sound of the venerable 1973. Now - through the power of Arturia’s advanced TAE® modelling - you too can have that harmonically rich, classic tone within your DAW. Devised by visionary electronics engineer and pro audio legend Rupert Neve, the 1973 preamp became a staple of the world’s top studios and added its unique tonal flavor to countless hits. It was a revolution in 1970, pioneering the use of reliable high-efficiency transistors to replace the temperamental vacuum tube technology of the time. The sound of the preamp became an instant hit with record producers, sound engineers, and artists the world over, cementing the 1973’s place in music history. Continuing that revolution, using their exclusive TAE® technology, Arturia have recreated this phenomenal piece of music production history. Capturing and recreating its distinct musical color, its pleasing analog distortion, and its sweet-sounding tone controls, you’ll be able to start your virtual signal chain with one of the best sounding pres ever created.
