warning, if you are ableton live user, don't buy this!

since uad o.s. 6.2 the massive passvie will not run within ableton live correctly,
it produces very loud crackles and pops, nearly taking your internal cpu to collapse.

i am very pissed off that this issue is not soved since three o.s. updates....

This plugin is astonishing. What it does for vocals alone would be worth the price of admission (silky smooth highs and ear pleasing mid presence which can be so elusive before can be dialed in in seconds). In addtion, it seems to work on any source I place it on as well as providing a fantastic in-the-box mastering tool.

Honestly I wouldn't have thought this possible from a software EQ based on previous experiences. Simply stellar in every way.

Not so great as people give it credit for.. It sounds good, but nothing like the real deal.,,,,
Usable but its prisy and other eq´s will do the job as well

Magnificent emulation of the hardware!

I absolutely love this on the mix bus! Best sounding emulation of the real thing to date!!

mai sentito un equalizzatore fare ciò che il Manley è in grado d fare. Dopo aver provato la demo l'ho subito acquistato senza attendere offerte speciali sul plug-in. E' incredibile, anche alla massima esaltazione delle frequenze il suono è limpido, delicato, mai fastidioso. Un miracolo nell'equalizzazione digitale.

Good Stereo EQ

I used pretty much on every mix that I work in the box.
the definition's amazing with a nice top end.

Pretty good

but not amazing good. It's not as clear as I expected. I like for adding a bit of warm and tubey sounding bottom end on subgroup out main output, but that's about it. Boosting high frequencies is hit or miss, and midrange bands are–I haven't found a use for them yet. It definitely isn't as useful as their compressor is, which I really like.

Manley Massive Passive EQ

very good.
But I use DSP too much. That is a shame.

I'm not quite sure how they did this with a plugin. It really sounds magical, and captures the grace of the original. I use it alllllll the time.

Very nice eq on output busses

Not so great on individual channels. Very warm and clear but not very powerful. Excellent for correction and refinement, one of the better high frequency bands of any software eq. One of these lives on the output of everything I do.

Manley Massive Passive EQ Magic

I'm still new to the MMP EQ but have used it on the mix bus of several tracks. UA plugins are unique. They've managed to capture the analog sound of vintage gear and offer it to musicians using digital platforms. Thanks for the Manley magic.

It's very unstable

I sent email to support team and re-install UAD 2 twice, it still doesn't work. Some of my session could be opened if I insert Manley Massive Passive, but most of my sessions are not. The whole session will be no response after insert Manley Massive Passive.

Good on dance tracks

It has a place on certain sounding tracks and gives it "that sound" that we are familiar hearing on certain tracks. especially, in the 4k mid range frequency boost. I bought it because it made a lot of sense when I put it on my track, it had that specific mid range presence that just worked to get me where I needed to go. I don't feel it suites every single master, or genre, but its really dependent on the material. However, when it works, it works in an irreplaceable fashion. Buy it, you won't regret it. You're bound to need to use it down the line on something

It’s subtle, but in a way that’s very beautiful. Highly recommended.

The best for mastering

No eq plugin is better than this on to boost eq for the master bus!

In the early 2000s, I had the pleasure of doing some contract mixdown/mastering work at a studio with some nice kit I could never afford. The Manley Massive Passive was a standout, and changed the way I use EQ. Thanks to its parallel routing and gentle curves I likened it to sending a channel to four sends, each with a buttery Pultec on it and summing them back together.

Haven’t done an A/B, but the plugin works/vibes similarly. Dig into mixing cuts & boosts in the same range, or stacking shelves with different center frequencies. Lovely stuff!
