Manley Preamp Is great!
A smooth, creamy tube preamp with high headroom.
We put the Manley preamp before our Api Vision Channel strip when we a wanted a smoother, creamy tube effect going into the punchy API for further processing for a more sophisticated, ballad-style, vocal chain.
It also is very useful to add clean to mildly saturated sound as an additional amplifying gain stage following a different preamp in the Unison slot in the vocal chain for powering a Sm-7b without a cloud lifter. It has a large VU helpful to set levels going into the next plug even set to a clean boost. Very useful for example for raising levels to go into a Studer tape plug-in to or higher levels to go into a Fairchild at the sweet spots.
I own the neve preamp, the Avalon and a bunch of others. I’ve taken the time twice to A/B all of them and this one stands out to my ears. I am specifically working with pop for what it’s worth. It provides lots of gain for quiet vocals and is clear as a bell. It is now my go-to.
Very good channel strip forr vocals
Got it a few weeks ago and still impressed - the dresser is especially good on this one. Great tool for any studio
Excellent sound, easy to setup
After thinking a lot i got this and for a good reason became one of my favorites unison pres. Quite easy to use, great sound.
Excellent Plug in
Excellent Plug in particularly suitable for the master. I am very satisfied!
MANLEY has minimum dsp usage, different flavour and color that’s different from any other plug-in. Hope to be free for Manaly VOX or bus ..
Como dice una canción de Marc Antony. Esto está rico.... Genial como suena este huff
Easy to Sound Great
It's hard to make this tool sound bad. It takes care of several tasks at once, and it does them well.
This is a staple of studio awesomeness
This compressor is a must have for glue and warmth. If you buy this comp and use the Manley Passive, you will not regret it!! II IS HOT!!!!
A Diamond in a field of diamonds
I actually forgot i purchased this since I bought the amek 9099 console.
I haven’t even used it yet. Maybe I’ll try it today
Like the hardware

The best way to save dsp
It's a fantastic plugin. The only thing against it is the amount of memory it consumes. For interfaces with little memory, like mine, to use it, I need to use it alone.
Definitely one of the best plugins that you can use on vocals!!!
On a mix just turn the knobs till you find what you want to boost or cut. Then see if the shelf or bell works it's magic ! Use ears not number or lights ! Move to the center and control gain, high and low pass ! Move it around in the plugin order and find the spot ! Done.
I still don't know
I liked it when I used it alone, but I don't know yet because I haven't been able to use it compared to other preamps.
why I didn't purchase it sooner
Perfectly designed for vocals. Sounds great and I actually dig it more than the hardware unit. No fiddling or patching. I open a session and I'm ready to go.
