Manley Massive PRIDE - Special Limited Edition Massive Passive Stereo Tube EQ
In celebration of LGBT Pride Month 2020, Manley Labs is extremely liberated to announce the MASSIVE PRIDE - a special edition of the classic best-selling MASSIVE PASSIVE Stereo Tube Equalizer with rainbow cosmetics derived from the original 1978 gay pride rainbow flag. Proceeds from sales of this unit will go to the Human Rights Campaign.
From EveAnna Manley:
“In the spirit of social inclusion and recognition of our desire for the supportive embrace of all people, I invite everyone to help celebrate Gay Pride Month 2020 with us. May unification, peace, and calm be eventually restored to our planet with love, appreciation, and understanding for all of our fellow humans.”
Creating natural, organic, acoustic tone can only be done with an equalizer that treats the signal with natural methods. The Massive Passive uses simple passive components and exploits their natural qualities rather than forcing a complex circuit to meet an arbitrary clinical or scientific goal. Manley knows that recording and mastering equalizers are used by artists for artistic goals and they balanced this design with a little more art than science. The Massive Passive is intended both for the most radical EQ sometimes needed for tracking as well as the most subtle shadings for vocals and mastering. It is designed to be a fundamentally different EQ but incorporates the best strengths of Pultecs, choice console EQs, parametrics and graphics. The difference is that the Massive allows twice as much EQ with half the coloration. It allows huge HF boosts without sibilance problems and unbelievable fatness without mud. This is unique. Being different also gives it some quirks and idiosyncrasies that will spark your creativity and sense of audio adventure.
