Manley® Massive Passive EQ
Great sound, I'll be using this plugin alot.
Great sounding master EQ and also works great on the 2 bus! Gets me where I’m going quickly.
This is a unique and beautiful EQ. From the middle cut knobs to the cut and boost per frequency band, the choices between shell and bell boost and cut (ohhh my the amount of volume you can add or remove). FLEXIBLE. The cross over points from the frequencies. This is really a great plugin with so much to offer. It works beautifully on bass… clear transparent and musical. I use this on multiple other instruments as well…
Massive Passive sounds great
Un eq sutil que realmente hace la diferencia.
Transparency or not, it’s your choice
I use it mainly on buses to clean some frequencies and on synths to help some frequencies to be less sharp
I have wanted it for a long time and now I am the owner of this unsurpassed warmth)
Sounds great. The user interface is responsive. Some of the buttons (boost/cut switch) are quite small and fiddly, but otherwise a nice plugin.
My permanent Master EQ
The most amazing master EQ I use on my master bus .
simply clean , even the presets are amazing.
Just a small adjustment you could hear the difference.
My favorite "go to" mastering eq.
Unique sound, easy to use. I am using it on master bus
Does it pass the blindfold test against the hardware? Oh yes....
I used to regularly hire the actual hardware Massive Passive to finish my mixes back in early to mid 2000's ..... I know the original unit well. This emulation is ridiculously good and an accurate rendition of the original.... I called the original hardware the "silk machine" . This plug-in allows you to impart the same subtle luxurious definition in the low frequencies without overwhelming the mix, and a trademark gossamer sheen - "air" - around the top end. The "silk" metaphor especially applies to the magic this EQ imparts to vocals. Purchase with high expectations and you wont be disappointed.
Interesting understanding of customer orientation
UAD waits until you have bought a plugin for full price and sends you exactly one day later a loyality price offer for same plugin. I like their sense of humour :-D
Mix bus and master
Great on mix bus and for mastering
Why I waited?
I can not understand, why I waited so long wuth buying this beast. One of the best plugin from UAD
Manley Massive Passive EQ
Great transparency for mastering!
Very close to the hardware!
I have the real thing but this is a pretty good plug-in if you’re looking for that similar mojo. On some applications you can barely hear the difference!
It takes some getting used to but when you know this unit - it can be a tasty little tool. Very clean and a unique modern Pultec style Eq!
Me Encanta este EQ en el Master Bus , Muy Limpio y con Muchas Posibilidades...
Not Just Another EQ
I thought "do I really need another EQ?" After using one this I do! It's hard to make adjustments that sound bad, it's so smooth. What do I do with all my other eq's?
