The Manley Stereo Variable Mu Limiter Compressor has been Manley Labs' flagship compressor since 1994. The Variable Mu's Class-A, tube and custom transformer-driven design epitomizes hand-made boutique craftsmanship. Developed under Manley Labs' rigorous scrutiny, the Manley Variable Mu Limiter Compressor plug-in ($299 US) for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a thorough emulation of this legendary tube limiter. The plug-in models entire stereo Class-A circuit, including custom transformers, input gain, and gain reduction characteristics, and adds plug-in only features include Dry/Wet Mix, Controls Linking, and Headroom functions. The new UAD Software v7.11 also features three new Direct Developer plug-ins - the Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite, Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor, and the Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 plug-ins. Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSM-2 Mix Satellite plug-in ($299 US) offers innovative controls for expertly targeted harmonic generation, as well as plug-in-only features such as the THD Mixer's Harmonic Balance control and the ability to run the unit's two harmonic generators simultaneously in parallel or series. Also developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor plug-in ($299 US) is an exhaustive emulation of the original hardware, right down to its four hand-built discrete VCAs. A uniquely powerful equalizer, the Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 plug-in ($299 US) provides crystal clear processing at the highest resolutions. A go-to EQ for music, as well as game developers and engineers in film and television, the MDWEQ5 plug-in is accurate, precise, and ear-tuned by the man who invented the term "parametric EQ".
