Manley designed the Core reference channel strip so that you can hit record and focus on your performance, not your signal chain. It sports the quality, performance, and flexibility their VOXBOX is known for, at a price that makes it accessible to any serious artist or engineer. You get a world-class Manley mic pre, followed by a 3:1 ELOP style compressor for effortless dynamic control. Engineers at Sweetwater are ecstatic over the active Baxandall EQ, and a fast attack FET brickwall limiter at the end of the chain protects your converters from accidental clipping. Even if you plug right in without tweaking a single knob, you're sure to get an amazing sound.
