Manley® Complete Plug‑In Bundle
Manley Complete Bundle
Great little software preamp
Nice and clean in the midrange and sound great on guitars!! It does a little something different than the VoxBox in the gain stage to my ears so it was worth the purchase.
Manley won again !
I have compared it with other compressors from the uad platform and believe that this is the only compressor that adds a 3d effect to the mix. This effect is very subtle, let's say 2-3% of the difference only heard on good speakers or headphones, but if you hear this difference, you'll be using the Manley forever.
I'm happy with the purchase
A month ago I tried the demo and immediately fell in love. I accidentally went to the site and saw a discount on this device and bought it without thinking. mmm vocals now sound at $ 1,000,000
Great on my vocals!!!
Why do VoxBox owners need to pay for this?
Feel a little duped...If I paid for VoxBox, UA should give this one as a free update.
Sounds amazing! Way better than VoxBox IMO
I was reluctant to demo initially since I have the VoxBox plugin and never use it, but this preamp sounds way better to me, especially with the transformer on. The top is smooth but with more detail than the 1084; the mids are foward and very pleasing on my voice; and the bass is thumpy and super full, which can be rolled off if necessary. I also find myself using less plugins in the chain to color the signal, so it's a great DSP saver. Absolutely demo this preamp!
if you have Voxbox you don't need this
I have the Manley Voxbox. This should be free for Manley Voxbox owners.
Smooth and clean, just what you'd expect from a Manley preamp. Highly recommended.
Love how this pre shapes the sound. Tight and contained bass, less low mids without sounding thin or shrill.
This should be free for the owners of Voxbox
Like Neve and Api, this is absolutely absurd, why should I pay for a portion of a Voxbox? Shouldn't it be free for the already owners? Like the Neve 1084 for the 1073 owners? I don't get it.
Great on vocals
This thing is smooth and clean.. Drop it in the unison slot and automatic warmth and clarity on your vocals
Warmth is Amazing
And gloss. Love it.
Really glues the mix! I liked the coloring very much.
One of the best compressors for master bus!
This is the secret sauce on all my tracks
Unbelievable sound. I put this gently on the master buss and it just brings everything to life in a very sexy, velvety way. Secret sauce, no doubt. One of my favorite plugins.

A must have for voice recording
A must have for voice recording, it really makes the difference
I've only had the chance to use the VOXBOX on a handful of sessions so far, so my opinion is still forming. So far, I like it. Smooth is the best word to describe it. One thing I noticed is the EQ needs to be boosted or cut rather a lot in order to even hear a change. It's like the curve is very mild until about 75%, then it's really pronounced. I don't know if the hardware is the same or not. The compressor can be a bit "grabby", so you need to be very precise in how you set it. Having only a 3:1 ratio is kind of unfortunate. The de-esser is like the EQ, it sounds like nothing is happening, then all of a sudden it's way too much. Subtlety and precision is how this channel strip works. I look forward to using it more. I've only used it on vocals so far.
This is really good, like all other plugins from UA
I mainly use this on the guitar bus. This Vari Mu glues all my guitars together and makes them stand out in the mix
