Manley Massive Passive
Soundwise it is great. Works very good for mastering and bus eq. However even though this should run from UAD-2 DSP cards, it still consumes 37-41% of your host CPU? This is a big turn off. That;'s su[[osed to be the reason to step on the UAD2 train, to unload the burden of your host CPU. Biut seems not all plugins are programmed to run 100% from the DSP's. However this may be a bug in the 64 bit version of the UAD software for which UA may release an update.
Perhaps the most impressive EQ from Universal Audio
I used the Massive Passive on various instruments and got great sounds on drums, bass, guitars, and vocals. On the mix bus, as well as in mastering sessions, it was clear and bright.
The only downside to this plug-in is the massive amount of the UAD-2''s CPU it uses, but it''s worth the strain. The Massive Passive will not replace all of your other more surgical or more colored EQ plug-ins; however, what it does sonically, it does incredibly well. I''ll never do another in-the-box mastering session without it, and it brings me one step closer to wanting to mix exclusively within my DAW.
Go to Sweetning eq, having used the real version of this, I can't say they are exactly the same. But the air this thing gives is extremely similar.
How did I live so long with out the Massive Passive???? I'll never know!
Crazy Eq. Really! I don't think you can make anything sound bad with this thing....
Although I'm sure I'll find a way to.....
A Big Cpu Hog... but... A must in any arsenal...
UA does it again!
This EQ it's just amazing, so versatile and powerfull. A little "CPU" heavy but really wonderfull.
Good job! We compared to hardware version!
We were able to compare, because we own also the hardware version. From our point of view(ear) the UAD Plugin is 85-90% close to the Hardware version. Really good job UAD!

Manley Massive Passive
The sound of this plug-in is amazing, very musical, smooth and sweet. It´s one of the best plugins made by UAD.
This EQ sounds amazing. Smooth and warm.
Be aware its a dsp-killer.
Un gran EQ
Un gran Eq. Sutíl y detallado. Es difícil hacer que algo suene mal, aún llevándolo a los extremos. Ideal para buses y Mastering.
La única contra es que consume mucho DSP. Si no tienes varios DSP, puedes usar como alternativa el precision EQ.
Super Son !
EQ très doux , rend le son très agréable , même dans les réglages extrémes .
Manley Massive Passive EQ plug-in
I just wanna know that this plugin is for both Mono and Stereo.It is correct?
When we adjust one channel and the other will follow automatically.So we can not adjust them separately Am I correct? Thank you
Intuitive, crystallclear, pure warm sound.
Uses an icredibly lot of dsp power, and, the price is also very hihg, but, for vocals, drum bus, mastering it is a must-have.
Brr: the best I ever used :)
You need this for sure in your mixing arsenal, along with the Harrison. There's thousands of eqs out there for surgical sculpting, sound coloring and so on. But the Manley gives you that perfect mix between the 2. It makes your sound expensive. Get this, not your average eq!!
Manley EQ best EQ Plug-in
This is amazing!! It gives me everything I am missing in my mixes,best EQ sound I ever heard .Manley® Massive Passive EQ Plug-In is the best EQ plug-in for the final mix. It is transformed your final cut into the next level of the pro audio. I really love the deep and crunchy sound that come out of this EQ processor.
Beautiful sounding EQ. I used the demo on an album. Loved it. Kept thinking about it, missed it, wished I had it, so I came back and bought it. For me, this excels at bringing out the best in pristine clean material. Acoustic guitar. Synthesizers. Voice. And in the mastering chain.
Some EQ's, maybe you only use for what it does to the top or the bottom, or how it pulls out good mid-range, but on this EQ each band is excellent. The curves that Manley chose are exactly what you need - distinct, right on the money each in their own way.
One of my favorite UA plugins for sure!
Blow me away!!!
Sound like the the real hardware. I can confirm that!
The Manley Massive...I wanted this thing for a long time!
I love the precise touch, especially in the higher frequencies!
Ideal for mastering eq as well! One major downside though.
It's a very heavy plugin! It drains DSP % and since I have the UAD 2
Duo card, I run out of DSP space fast with this thing, causing my
DAW to lag intensely once the UAD DSP usage is at max!
So if that problem could be solved, then it's a 5 star plugin for me! :-)
ESTE EQ ES INCREIBLE, MUY SUTIL. YO CREO QUE SI LLEGARAMOS Y MOVIERAMOS TODOS LOS PARAMETROS SONARIA BIEN IGUAL. MUY BUENO !
Manley Massive Pasive EQ
What I can say,the best Eq what I have check on Mastering chain, and also on some buses too,yes is CPU hungry but very soon will come out 64 bit for Mac users and this will be the greatest handly precision EQ.Thank you Uad Team
This plug-ins most useful and Very good sounds. I love manley.
