Manley® Complete Plug‑In Bundle
Manley Complete Bundle
Great on vocals
This thing is smooth and clean.. Drop it in the unison slot and automatic warmth and clarity on your vocals
Warmth is Amazing
Really glues the mix! I liked the coloring very much.
One of the best compressors for master bus!
This is the secret sauce on all my tracks
Unbelievable sound. I put this gently on the master buss and it just brings everything to life in a very sexy, velvety way. Secret sauce, no doubt. One of my favorite plugins.

A must have for voice recording
A must have for voice recording, it really makes the difference
I've only had the chance to use the VOXBOX on a handful of sessions so far, so my opinion is still forming. So far, I like it. Smooth is the best word to describe it. One thing I noticed is the EQ needs to be boosted or cut rather a lot in order to even hear a change. It's like the curve is very mild until about 75%, then it's really pronounced. I don't know if the hardware is the same or not. The compressor can be a bit "grabby", so you need to be very precise in how you set it. Having only a 3:1 ratio is kind of unfortunate. The de-esser is like the EQ, it sounds like nothing is happening, then all of a sudden it's way too much. Subtlety and precision is how this channel strip works. I look forward to using it more. I've only used it on vocals so far.
This is really good, like all other plugins from UA
I mainly use this on the guitar bus. This Vari Mu glues all my guitars together and makes them stand out in the mix
Instant vocal perfection
I was tossing up between this and the Avalon, but the Manley Voxbox won out. It just sounded better on my voice with an SM7B. The de-essing is super simple to use and highly effective, without the need for pretty visualisations. Using it in the unison slot means it's missing a gate in front but that can be worked around. I'm not sure I really need anything else on the vocal recording chain. Winner!
A must have for mix and mastering Engineers
This has become the go to mastering Eq plugin for us in Sophia Studios. It brings to life elements within the mix and makes vocals to be upfront. We have bypassed one of our outboard Eq for this plugin! All we can say is that it is wonderful, I hope one day we will be able to AB it with the real hardware unit it was emulated on
Took me a few years before I really could appreciate everything it does!
Never heard the real one but
It gives voice tracks sustain as well as a rounder sound and crispness to be proud of.
You just tweak it and you will be pretty much amazed by its capabilities.
I like it!
The best of the best
Just use this plug for vocals and the magic will happend.
10/10 in every parameter!!!
I love it!
I use it for mastering. Must have!
A must-have for Mastering and for Rock/Metal songs
Remarkable EQ, I'm blown away. This is a must-have for Mastering, and also if you mix a lot of Rock & Metal like I do. I've experimented with many different digital EQs from many different companies and whenever I'd try adding boosts (e.g., anything maybe 300Hz or greater) to distorted guitars (or to a mix containing distorted guitars), the resulting sound was kind of harsh/gritty. Not the Manley EQ. This is an amazing technological accomplishment by Universal Audio.
Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip
This is simply great to use. I am fully satisfied to use this and the output is brilliant.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner
Ive tried a lot of different preamps in my unison slot, and this is BY FAR my favorite one. This preamp is clear and transparent. It also has an incredible ability to allow you to shape the charachter and tone that it provides. The compressor is smooth and buttery and the pultec style EQ adds a beautiful color. I HIGHLY recommend the Manley Voxbox. Dont hesitate to pull the trigger on this one. You will be glad you did.
This is an indispensable plugin for every good audio application.
This was one of the plugins I bought as soon as I got my Apollo Twin USB...and it was honestly a sure-fire purchase since you've worked with the physical device and you know the incredible sound it has. And this plugin translates very well this wonderful sound that can be used in many applications. Perfect and amazing.
I just demoed this. When I switched it on, I instantly heard the sound of 179$ leaving my bank account.
