Get the Sound of Manley's Flagship Hardware

The Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip plug‑in thoroughly emulates the modern boutique hardware, including its high‑fidelity tube mic preamp, vactrol optical compressor, Pultec‑style passive EQ, and de‑esser/limiter, giving you hit‑making vocals that are clear, detailed, and full of life.

Add Magical EQ Sculpting

Add Magical EQ Sculpting

The Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip plug‑in’s three‑band, passive EQ is based on the classic Pultec MEQ‑5 but extended, giving you a broad‑stroke EQ that keeps the top end sweet, and the lows defined, yet natural sounding — even with extreme boosts and cuts.

Compress Sources Before the Preamp

Compress Sources Before the Preamp

Just like the hardware, the Manley VOXBOX plug‑in lets you tame transients before the preamp with its perfectly tuned, flexible optical compressor. This, along with a ton of interactive Attack and Release combinations, you'll get exceptionally smooth‑sounding tracks every time.

Get Ultra Transparent De‑Essing and Limiting

Get Ultra Transparent De‑Essing and Limiting

At the center of the Manley VOXBOX is its sublime, natural sounding de‑esser. With two knobs, you get complete control of not only vocals, but shrill electric guitars, or overly bright overheads. You can also turn off the de‑esser frequency control and use this section as an aggressive and colorful‑limiter.

Use on Any Source for Pro Results

Use on Any Source for Pro Results

For years, the Manley VOXBOX has been a secret weapon for bassists looking to harness its high‑end tube signal path and slick EQ and compression features. The Manley VOXBOX is also perfect for clean electric guitars, strings, and drums as its always‑musical results can lift any source way beyond the ordinary.

This is what Class A sounds like

I've only tried this plugin one time, but that was enough to convince me to buy it immediately (on Native; I only have a Volt). It has a really, really smooth sound. I would definitely recommend.

Convenient, warm and clean

The compressor before the pre is a cool touch, is enjoy the de esser, very clean, the eq is great for tone shaping. This doesn't need more than 4 to 7 db of compression to level out a vocal well. It has a nice tone and it's own sound, when you learn how all the different components interact with eachother, you can make something incredible with this while tracking vocals.

Incredibly versatile and transparent channel strip!

Like the title of this review says, the Manley Voxbox is incredibly versatile, and quite transparent until you hit the input hard and slam the compressor to silly levels, then you can "hear" the effect. It can and does add some warmth around a signal source. But overall it's really great for leveling out a dynamic vocal or other source. The de-esser in this plug in is BOSS!

Um canivete suiço ao alcance.

Tenho usado o VOXBOX em diversos casos. Obviamente que ele cai como luva nos vocais, da um calor aveludado e profundo nos canais de voz, comprime sem esmagar, sem sugar a energia, mesmo com uma compressão pesada. Mas gostei do comportamento do VOXBOX no baixo e no violão. Nos violões em particular me surpreendeu muito, essa característica de comprimir sem esmagar ajudou os violões ficarem presentes na mix ter de comprimir muito, com alguns dBs de gain reduction o violão já ganhou uma vida a mais. Parabéns a UA pelos excelentes plugins.

Amazing Plug-in

I am extremely satisfied with the majority of UAD plugins that I recently purchased and have been using. In particular, the Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip provides me with great satisfaction when setting up vocals, especially during the preamp stage. I highly recommend it. Thank you, UAD.

Every good thing said about this channel strip is true!

Just absolutely amazing! I thought it would be a very good ''one trick poney'' but I was wrong. This CS is incredibly versatile. Love how the gain button gives me different character for different types of songs.

Still waiting

I am still waiting for the download of the UA software to my system. It has been almost 2weeks! I’ve spent much time trying to get assistance from UA to no avail. The $$$ was taken from my account on day one. Quite disappointed. May not be buying anymore UA plugins, which is unfortunate I like the ones I’ve bought so far…
