Manley® Complete Bundle
Manley Complete Bundle
This is an absolutely killer plugin! I've been skeptical about it for a while and didn't even demo it because of the high price. But eventually I tried it out on a project I'm working on right now, and maaan this was spot on! Doesn't transform poor mixes to something magical but will put some sparkle on an already good mix. This is the missing part for me when it comes to mastering. Will buy it as soon as the demo is over. The 299 is a bargain compare to what you get and in comparison to the hardware;) Even if it's a resource hog, I will buy a new card just for this plugin, it's that good! GOOD work UAD! Really looking forward what UAD have for us in the future:)
best plugin made by UAD yet. hands down. can`t go without it anymore
This is by far the best damn EQ! Since I don't have the deep pockets to own the hardware I feel empowered to own the emulation...which completely ROCKS.
WOW! This Massive Passive Rocks Like The Hardware.
Remember Voltage Is What You Hear Perfect Job UA.Peace!
Worth the price of admission to the world of UAD2. Its nice that there is a regular and mastering version. Priceless sonics and quality.
2 words: Buy it! Need more words? Alright, how about this: It's the unrivaled champion of Equalizers. It imparts a super-smooth sound to anything it touches, and you can apply extreme cuts or boosts without ever getting a harsh or nasty sound due to the way the bands interact. The bands are very flexible and can act in shelf or bell mode, with configurable bell shape (Q) and, more interestingly, configurable shelf shape where you can change it so that it's not a pure shelf but actually giving it some interesting shapes that allow you to cut or boost without muddying or creating hollowness in nearby frequencies. Additionally, all the bands of the unit interact and can be combined around the same frequency ranges for amazing effects thanks to the unique curves this provides. It comes in a mastering and regular version. You NEED this!
Awsome - the glue that binds a mix together & makes it sparkle!
With the Massive Passive EQ you can produce great vocal nuances or enhancements in mastering. The sound of this plug-in is unique, very open and musical.
In my opinion the best emulation of UA. www.mdbaudio.com
Great sound, easy use. Good idea the 2 versions for mastering.
WOW...theres nothing like this in the digital world, love it on accustic drums and vocals, really beefs sh+# up
Cannot believe how good this eq is. Perfect for the 2 bus; mastering; or any bus track that needs some sweetening...
good caracter give that phat sound, it is totally diferent form other eq plugins, seems that you could now let the hardware passed by.
One of the best EQ plug-in on the market, never tried the original but this plug-in add a lot of nice coloration
The perfect EQ. A true masterpiece. Amazing high end sheen (makes you say, OMG this is digital?!?), delicious mids, beefy lows. Tons of control, and switches easily from broad strokes to precise tweaks. Somewhat unique interface takes some getting used to. Very heavy DSP user, but worth it. Transparent filters. Impossible to make it sound bad. A steal at double the price.
A must have... I often use it in the master chain of my daw.
Truly an amazing eq. Very clean, and can be pushed hard without signal degradation. I know--it's pricey. But worth it.
I do not know the hardware but the plug is super efficient. The only limit is me, as often ua
Any time I think I'm finished with EQing, if I haven't already got this in the mastering chain, I'll slip one it, and whoa! In three shakes, I've got something MUCH better than I had without it. Doesn't matter what's in the chain already. It's almost always an improvement.
On some material (tambourines, cymbals and other "white noise" percussion instruments, as well as strings bow sound, etc.), there's something the Manley does to those sounds that is VERY unique and recognizable. I know it when I hear it in other people's work, and I like it more times than not!
It's something I never want to be without again, and I don't think it would ever have come about in plug-in form if it hadn't been for UA. Thanks, EveAnna and Hutch, for the original design (and for helping get the plug-in right), and thanks, UA for bringing it to us in the software domain!
Great sound and clean sound, simple to use. A most !
