Sometimes, all you need is something simple

This isn't like some sort of magic secret sauce that will automatically improve your project. But you probably already know that. I purchased this because I was looking for a mastering EQ that was simple to use. Mastering is new to me, and I'm still learning. But one thing I've learned is that less is more. There are other EQs that are more complex, and can achieve specialized tasks. I already have EQs for that. IME, this is great for making subtle, yet important, changes to your project so that you can wrap things up. I am used to using graphic EQs, but I've done OK with this by using Q3 first as a way to just "illustrate" the changes I'm making. I will go ahead and bypass Q3 though, because the massive passive just sounds better, even if I am making the same exact changes. I don't have a technical explanation for this, and it's hard to describe the difference in sound quality. It just sounds better.

It was all worth it

This was the reason I picked up a UAD rig in the first place. For a fraction of the cost, what did I have to lose? This thing delivered and delivered well. I'm so happy with it.

I wasn't going to buy this...

I was NOT going to buy another plug-in. Heaven knows, I've got enough, and they sound wonderful. But then I tried it... I was only going to try it out. OMG!! Suddenly I had a whole new recording system. I bought it after the first take on the first track. This is hands down the best EQ for acapella vocals.

Virtually tactile.

I'm just starting to learn more about frequency and what are some go to frequencies to boost or reduce for specific instruments. Having said that, I like to just use my ears and listen. The massive passive is a passive equalizer and descendent from the great pultec. Pultec is nice put this is nicer. All is on one panel and this is great for mixing on individual tracks, the bus, and is also used as a mastering unit. I kept missing it after the demo so it was an obvious choice. Now with 12 cores of dsp it has a permanent home on any mix.

Adds so much character to the vocals. Crisp, but warm.

Perfect tool for adding subtle colors

I use this mainly for group channels
This adds subtle liveliness and low-end to the bus and makes the sound more alive.
It's a favorite plug-in that famous Alan Mayson!

Wowww !

Un des eq les plus musical que j’ai en rtas. Il reproduit à 98% l’original. Juste un peu moins de profondeur mais avec la musique de nos jours et les compressions, ca fini qu’on ne voit pas la différence !
