UAD Demo Video
Featuring the Manley Massive Passive EQ plug-in
The two-channel, four-band Manley Massive Passive tube EQ utilizes design strengths from choice console, parametric, graphic, and Pultec EQs — delivering sweet, musical curves with unparalleled clarity and headroom. The “Passive” in the Manley Massive Passive refers specifically to the tone shaping elements of the equalizer, which use only resistors, inductors, and capacitors to create all frequency changes. Its Frequency controls intentionally interact with one another, as do the Gain and Bandwidth controls, allowing for the Massive Passive’s natural and organic sound.
The Only Authentic Massive Passive Emulation
Painstakingly modeled by Universal Audio and rigorously scrutinized by Manley Labs for authenticity, the Manley Massive Passive EQ plug-in captures the hardware’s unique filter curves and musical distortion.
Mix or Master
The Manley Massive Passive EQ plug-in offers a Standard version that offers continuous Bandwidth adjustment, and a Mastering version that includes 16 steps of easily recallable Bandwidth selections. Perfect for subtle or broad strokes to individual instruments or whole mixes, you can add presence and sizzle without harshness to drums and vocals, or add weight and heft to an entire mix without muddying the bottom end.
“I can't hear any difference between my hardware Manley Massive Passive and the UAD plug-in on any instrument I've A/B'd. It's that good.”
– Michael Brauer (Rolling Stones, Coldplay)
“The bottom-line to me is, the UAD Massive Passive sounds @#$%ing great! This is my new buss EQ.”
– Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers)
“It's amazing how accurately the UAD Manley Massive Passive EQ captures the subtle EQ sweeps of the hardware. ”
– Jason Schweitzer (Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Ciara)

Manley® Massive Passive EQ プラグイン
I'm just starting to learn more about frequency and what are some go to frequencies to boost or reduce for specific instruments. Having said that, I like to just use my ears and listen. The massive passive is a passive equalizer and descendent from the great pultec. Pultec is nice put this is nicer. All is on one panel and this is great for mixing on individual tracks, the bus, and is also used as a mastering unit. I kept missing it after the demo so it was an obvious choice. Now with 12 cores of dsp it has a permanent home on any mix.

Love it!! very clean, great sound
Revive el master
Revive el máster y le da el toque pro a todas tus mezclas
Un des eq les plus musical que j’ai en rtas. Il reproduit à 98% l’original. Juste un peu moins de profondeur mais avec la musique de nos jours et les compressions, ca fini qu’on ne voit pas la différence !
Legendary equalizer that works perfectly on the master channel!
Great filters and I love the way the bands interact, always on Master Bus
And if I have enough dsp, the channel version is nice to use too

Just insert it on your 2-buss, try the Manson curve preset and play with the knobs depending on what you’re looking for in your mix, and puff! You got a better mix
This is a great sounding EQ. You can't go wrong with this. So far any setting sound musical whatever you do.
Amazing mastering eq with good presets
Вся линейка Менли - шикарна!
Ive used many Eq's before. My old favorite was Cambridge eq however, Manley Massive Passive is definitely the EQ of choice from now on!!!!!!
Must have EQ
I use it mainly on vocals but it works great on everything
UAD Massive Passive
The Massive Passive UAD plugin is one of the best ever made. It sounds very close to the hardware. Worth the money just for ease of use. Use it with the UAD API 2500 on the master bus for a quick mix or master that stands out.
How you can not like it! A got to for every Mastering. My friends use it also on Vocals!
I was looking to tame high end of an acoustic guitar to get it to be warm but not dull. I have many EQ’s to choose from but this is the only one that accomplished exactly what I was looking for. A musical EQ for sure. Thanks guys!
