Great plugin! I've been using it a lot in my mastering chain, combining it with other plugins and hardware gear. Very well modelled!!! Highly recommended!!!

Very Useful!!

Great compressor plug-in. Very useful in my scoring work to help mixes retain fullness when mixed under dialog. Thanks, UAD!

Very close to the hardware

As a plugin, it's just great. Very close to the hardware' sound (maybe a little bit of glue less), but very usable and always "right" on tracks. Puttin' this plug on a mix is never a mistake, it works everywhere in the mix.

What this does to drums, vocals, guitars, with the input into both channels, lets the low end still pump through into the mix. Best combo with the Massive Passive, able to dial the attack on drums to make a larger than life sound.

Love this on my stereo bus, or anything really... definitely glues everything together without being too grabby or sounding squashed... it sounds amazing!

It sounds like a dream to hear the sound of manley. It seems to hear another elaborately mastered sound.

Mix glue

I've used the HW version on the mix bus whenever I've had the opportunity, and now I'm addicted to mixing through the UAD version! I'm never doing more than about 2db of reduction, but it's always the perfect glue and makes things just sound "right".

The Real Deal

As someone who used the real thing every day for nearly four years, this sounds and reacts exactly like real a Manley. Brilliant as an individual compressor on single outputs or as a buss of groups or whole mixes. I have been recording my old vinyl thru this plug in and it gives the finished recording a gentle hug. Absolutely my favourite compressor

Gospel Beats

Great sounding compressor. Have not had it long enough to play around with it and push the controls, but simply just placing it on your audio track, it very transparent, compression with actually hearing the music being compressed.

So real so good

It sounds like the "real" thing and everithing that goes trhought this beauty... gets better. If you wanna use it to add "magic" to your mix or track just put a liitle of it... not too much. Great device.

Vari Necessary

The first thing I listen for when I instantiate any plugin is whether or not I lose sonic detail, or if the plugin smears my sounds. This is especially true of software compressors. UAD gets it. This compressor controls the sounds without melting them. It glues them together while retaining their sonic images. I'm loving UAD right about now.

Manley Variable Mu® Limiter Compressor

I have compared other two Variable Mu compressors with this one:
NI/Softube Vari Comp and Klanghelm Mjuc.
Manley Variable Mu is subtle but It is not superclose to the hardware.
I find it almost useless for me and I regret that I have bought it.

The best compressor emulation that I have seen so far!!

Awesome compressor here! To my ear this is by far the best emulation of an analogue compressor that I have seen. Incredible job UA!

Great Character!!!

Warm, punchy, very flavorful. Killer if you want some mid smack. Has more of a vintage frequency response, I throw it on most of my masters to give my digital mixes more analog feel. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great mastering compressor.
