Universal Audio, a manufacturer of high-quality audio hardware and award-winning UAD-2 Powered Plug-ins for Mac and PC, today announced the release of the highly anticipated Manley® Massive Passive EQ plug-in. Working with Manley Labs, Universal Audio's Massive Passive EQ plug-in represents the most ambitious hardware EQ modeling project to date, bringing UAD-2 users both the standard and mastering versions of this world-renowned EQ in one package. Specifically, the two-channel, four-band Manley Massive Passive EQ utilizes design strengths from choice console, graphic, parametric and Pultec EQs — delivering a fundamentally different EQ that's beyond compare. The Massive Passive's natural treatment of a signal lends itself to both radical tonal shaping as well as delicate vocal shading or subtle mastering enhancement. "The Massive Passive EQ is one of our best-known products. We didn't even want to entertain the idea of doing a plug-in unless it was really going to be done right," commented EveAnna Manley, Owner, Manley Laboratories, Inc. "Our expectations were high for the plug-in emulation to be spot-on. Working with Universal Audio, we believe they've totally nailed it." The Manley® Massive Passive EQ Powered Plug-In features include:
  • Highly coveted 2-channel, 4-band, passive, tube EQ emulation plug-in, both standard and mastering versions
  • Painstakingly modeled over a six month period and rigorously scrutinized by Manley Labs for authenticity
  • Filter curves, band interdependencies, distortion and hysteretic behavior all represented in plug-in — yielding a unique, very musical and "open" sound
"The Massive Passive is truly the ultimate in mastering grade EQs. It sounds warm without ever being dull; it stays precise while remaining highly musical," offered UAD Powered Plug-Ins Product Manager, Will Shanks. "Manley Labs represents quality, sonic excellence and unequivocal analog design expertise," enthused Matt Ward, President of Universal Audio. "There has always been a special affinity between our companies, and we are elated to have EveAnna Manley joining us a plug-in partner for the UAD-2 platform." More information on the Manley® Massive Passive EQ Powered Plug-Ins for UAD-2 can be found at: http://www.uaudio.com/products/software/manley/index.html The Manley® Massive Passive EQ plug-in is available as part of the new UAD Software v5.6.0 release.
