Get the Sound of Manley's Flagship Hardware
The Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip plug-in thoroughly emulates the modern boutique hardware, including its high-fidelity tube mic preamp, vactrol optical compressor, Pultec-style passive EQ, and de-esser/limiter, giving you hit-making vocals that are clear, detailed, and full of life.
Add Magical EQ Sculpting
The Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip plug-in’s three-band, passive EQ is based on the classic Pultec MEQ-5, giving you a broad-stroke EQ that keeps the top end sweet, and the lows defined, yet natural sounding — even with extreme boosts and cuts.
Compress Sources Before the Preamp
Just like the hardware, the Manley VOXBOX plug-in lets you tame transients before the preamp with its perfectly tuned, flexible optical compressor. This, along with a ton of interactive Attack and Release combinations, you'll get exceptionally smooth-sounding tracks every time.
Get Ultra Transparent De-Essing and More
At the center of the Manley VOXBOX is its sublime, natural sounding de-esser. With two knobs, you get complete control of not only vocals, but shrill electric guitars, or overly bright overheads. You can also turn off the de-esser frequency control and use this section as an aggressive and colorful limiter.
Record "Through" a Boutique Tube Preamp With Apollo
UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology lets you track in realtime "through" the Manley VOXBOX Channel Strip plug-in using your Apollo, giving you the original boutique hardware’s line/mic preamp impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and exact circuit behaviors.
Use on Any Source for Pro Results
For years, the Manley VOXBOX has been a secret weapon for bassists looking to harness its high-end tube signal path and slick EQ and compression appointments. The Manley VOXBOX is also perfect for clean electric guitars, strings, and drums as its always-musical results can lift any source way beyond the ordinary.
