Manley® Complete Bundle
Manley Complete Bundle
Best Mastering EQ Plugin
Simply turning the plugin on makes things better! After that you have 4 EQ bands that are equal parts precision and tone.

If the others don't, this one might
This is great a great tool for making a mix/bus stick together. Great flexibility, i don't know what's going on with the imaging but you perceive things a little wider, on the right source it sounds really nice.

This thing sounds tight, adds size and presence (tube flavour)
And it appears UA did a pretty good job at modelling it, because I managed to fool engineers who only track through the original hardware unit, thanks lol
UA / Manley ! Good stuff
I'm a UA only plug-in shop and I'm never disappointed.
The Vari-Mu is my latest purchase and it works super on the mix bus but I've also used it with great success on the Bass buss also. Thanks for the affordable tools and attention to detail.
Who doesn't want a big hug?
I master with two compressors in sequence. This one is very soft, yet binds the mix perfectly without making it sound obviously compressed. I follow this with a slightly more stiff compressor. Sounds so good I want to remaster everything. Should have bought this a long time ago.
Standard on my vocals
I have not experimented much with its EQ and compressor functions, but the preamp component is priceless. I like its colour very much
I first used the hardware on the mix bus on our first album years ago. Thought it was awesome then. Just used the hardware again recently on a drum session. It sounds great in the box too. So many toys!
Variable-MU is a must-have compressor in my mastering chain!
I doubt there will be one to replace it.
A processor you can’t hear!
I wasn’t convinced that UA could reproduce the qualities of the VoxBox but it took only a few minutes to be pleasantly surprised by the app. Compression EQ and hi and lo pass filters ready to go!
After getting the feel of the Manley compressor, I found that it is very powerful and amazing at glueing the mix together in a mastering situation. Once I got the hang of the headroom feature this compressor quickly became my go to compressor for my mastering needs. Highly recommended! I have a multitude of great compressors at my disposal and the Manley is my number one compressor for Mastering. I haven’t tried it out on mixing instruments and vocals yet, however I can imagine it will do just fine.
I just got this, but....
...I'm going to use it on EVERYTHING. It sounds great. For my purposes the compression is exactly what I was looking for to add a little depth, color, and adhesion to my overall mixes. I can't compare it to the hardware, which I'm sure is wonderful, but if you're on a budget this is a solid option to start with.
Excellent sound quality!
Very good EQ!
It sounds amazing! Excellent!
Simple quick operation and very good sound
Plugin for those of you, who like a brisk setup without hundreds of options.
Good and effective deesser.
Very solid compressor.
Manley MassivePassive (like) EQs for bass and treble.
Warm "tube" sound.
Good not only for vocals!
Well done ... and thanks to UAD.
I use this plugins on a live-Rack and it works great.

Definitivo en Voces!!
Una pasada, insertado en los tracks de voz solo con los presets, se hace indispensable!!
Brilliant vocal EQ / Compressor
I,like many powerful yet high tenor vocalists,need to occasionally reign in my midrange.VoxBox does it nicely.Cheers
Perfect for vocals and pianos
This Channel strip has a reputation for a reason. Simply put this is first class! Love it
Something amazing happened during the demo
I went through the presents on a bass line + loop and bang it sounded incredible. Very rich sounding.
I had a finicky bass track and literally tried every UAD plugin trying to get the flipping' thing to sit in the mix and then I remembered that the Manley Vox Box is the "Go To" for bass. 2 minutes later I heard every detail and it sat perfectly in the mix. I don't care if it only sounds "94%" accurate, it works like a charm.
