Manley Massive Passive Master B-Stock

Stereo EQNo mastering studio can do without a 'Massive Passive' today. The Massive Passive is probably the most common equalizer in mastering studios and there's a reason for that. Its unique sound and unique way of working with filter settings that can't be done with other EQs and this makes it very special. The 4 parametric filters per channel are coupled in parallel, and as a result, the Massive Passive behaves differently than other EQs - you can create ranges that would need 6 tapes for conventionally working EQs.

How does it sound? The passive filters are very transparent and only the tubes give the device character. The mids are legendary and many think there is nothing better for Rock. But even with acoustic music, the Massive Passive retains an open sound, even if it requires more intervention. Bass and treble ranges can be created that are similar to the Manley Pultec. Simply by varying the bandwidth you can create a punchy and crisp, or a fat and warm bass. The mastering version is not like the SLAM! or VariMu discrete resistors behind the front panel, but works with mechanically screened potentiometers, which have a slightly narrower adjustment range and thus allow finer tuning. So you can use the standard version without any problems for mastering and grab more power when editing single signals.
