Manley Massive Passive Eq Plugin.rar
the default setting of the voxbox compressor is extremely flexible. you can easily dial in a very smooth and musical compression, even go a bit wider and brighten things up. another cool function in the voxbox is that it offers a preset compressor algorithm for each of the four manley time constants mentioned above. this means that you can apply any of the 10 presets and still have an extremely transparent compressor. manley is also the only compressor that offers 9 different de-ess algorithms. the default settings are a bit too narrow, but thats easy to change. the baxandall de-ess is a little too bright for my taste, but that can be easily turned up or down if you prefer. the default settings are more than adequate for most situations, so you can forget about changing them. another cool feature is the ability to choose between the default voxbox compressor settings or the total bypass method. this bypass mode lets the voxbox bypass the compressor entirely, so you can apply it as a plug-in without altering the main signal at all. this setting is perfect for a few different scenarios, like mixing live and panned tracks and getting a more transparent feel to the signal.
in short, manley has answered a lot of the questions that i had when designing this plugin. it captures the vintage sound of the original hardware with accuracy and finesse, and it also allows you to add some very cool new ideas to your mixes. its also a very flexible compressor for many different situations, and its a ton of fun to play with. this is an audiophile must-have plugin. finally, whats also cool is that you can download pulsar audio pulsar massive vst at a price less than $100.00! thats a must if you want a true and authentic passive eq.
the va-2 is a solid sounding compressor that is more or less modeled after the iconic la-2a by manley. it features a traditional bell-shaped attack and release characteristic that is perfect for smoothing out the peaks in your signal and reducing its dynamic range. however, the la-2a was more of a hi-end limiter, so the va-2 doesnt quite have the same transparent quality as the la-2a did. va-2 also boasts 9 different de-ess algorithms, including the baxandall de-ess. the default settings are a little bit bright for my taste, but thats easy to fix.
