MANLEY MASSIVE PASSIVE EQ
This is my first time experimenting with the software emulation of a Massive Passive. I can't say it sounds just like hardware, but it's definitely a sweet eq. IMHO it's really not the best in a mastering environment, but much better suitable for adding clarity and stereo width to vocal and instrument busses. This could work as a finishing eq to add a layer of transparent, digital sheen to a drum bus but there are better main eqs for drums, kits, and overheads and honestly, any other individual mono or stereo instrument. In the context of busses this really shines but on a full mix, it doesn't work as well as a Dangerous Bax or Bx_Digital. I really wanted to love this one due to all the hype but it's still an excellent choice for the right situations, just not the best.
While it would be unreasonable to expect the same three dimensional sound of the real thing, this plugin works and reacts like the original, producing the same effect. UAD did an excellent job of emulating the Massive. I use it on the mix-bus or for mastering application mostly.
Adds such a sweet sound to the mix when mastering. Love it!

EL TOQUE FINAL
La colección incluye dos versiones: una de mezcla y otra de mastering. Las diferentes curvas del EQ hacen que el sonido se equilibre y suene increible. Es la principal característica de Manley, la musicalidad.

Very good for mastering and solo instruments. It is a good addition for "when you need it" moments because nothing sounds like it. DSP print is horror, UAD should work on it's efficiency.
MAstering in the box
Great to have a Maley massive passive in he box. Massive Sound I like them for drumgroups or Mastering =)
This Eq has been an amazing addition to my mixing and mastering workflow. Works wonders and sheesh it sure can make your low-end sound St. Bernard and beautiful at the same time. Should I say Beauty and the Beast reimagined for your music landscape!!!!
Extremely powerful in handling high and low-mid frequencies
The highlight of this excellent Mastering EQ, is the high, and low-mid frequencies.
Smooth as butter silk.
Great Mastering EQ
I used this mastering some vinyl transfers. Very smooth and musical. Great for tone-shaping with enough flexibility for light surgical fixes.
The UA Massive Passive does what its supposed to for a fraction of the hardware price! Highly recommended.
Best eq ever!
With this eq I can reach the perfect curve for my master!

Manley Massive Passive EQ
Superb eq not only on the master but everything.Subtle but can be coaxed into more semi surgical tasks.Recommended .Richard from Somerville & Wilson
Massive Passive can do wonders in the hands of great masters of audio.
This has to be my favorite UAD plug
Great tone shaping tool.
Does what it's supposed to, in an elegant and musical way. Great job UA.
Great for adding freshness and livening up my pre-apollo mixes, not to mention all my mixes in the future :)
