It’s not hard to use the Neve 1057 if you’ve got a little bit of experience using other Neve channel strips of even just semi-parametric equalizers. It’s got more to work with than most of the other Never EQ modules that I’ve used, including the 31102’s and 1073’s that you’ll find in the studio’s Neve 8068. On top is a trim knob as always for setting your level coming in, which is followed by three bands of EQ. The top band is a high frequency band, which is followed by a high pass filter. The middle gives you the most control, with separate parameters for frequency, bandwidth, and gain, while bottom band has the same minus the full Q parameter. It’s definitely not too hard to use, especially if you’re used to the Neve format of EQ’s as I am.
With the Neve 1057, you’re getting a bona fide Neve sound. For me there isn’t anything like that of a Neve preamp and EQ, as in general they’ve got the fullest sound of any channel strips I’ve used before. The 1057 in particular has a sound that falls right in line with most of the other Neve modules that I've used before, the only major difference has to do with the make up of the EQ's more than anything. It just provides you with more options and more flexibility, but as far as sound goes this sounds much like your standard 1073 Neve, although I haven't shot it out with them.
I don't think that you'll find too many people out there who have a bad thing to say about the Neve 1057. This is one of the earliest Neve modules out there from what I was told, although it doesn't seem like too many of them made it very far since the ones I've used were the only ones I've ever even seen. For this reason I think it's safe to assume that these will cost you a good amount of money since they're so rare. I don't think it would be worth it to spend an extreme amount of money on these if you could get other Neve modules cheaper, but they definitely sound as good as any Neve module out there.
