newManley Manley SLAM! Mastering

Stereo valve limiter designed for mastering applications.
  • Description
  • Features

The Manley SLAM! Mastering Version is actually two limiters in one; one Electro-Optical circuit (ELOP) and a really fast FET-base brick-wall limiter both design to provide the flavour of some of the most sought-after limiters.

First is the Electro-Optical (ELOP) limiter which is a firm favourite for tracking vocals. It features a side-chain high pass filter to avoid unwanted rumble to affect the gain reduction. Like many other electro-optical limiters, the SLAM! Mastering edition features 5 ratio settings: 10:1, 5:1, 3:1, 2:1 and a unique Auto HF which starts at 1.5:1 and gradually increases to 10:1 for high frequencies. This works effectively as a De-Esser which can work wonders with the ELOP Side Chain toggle set at 200Hz.

Following the ELOP is Manley’s implementation of the FET Limiter. Extremely versatile, the FET limiter can yield great results from clean and predictable to grungy and distorted. This quality is what made some FET limiters so desirable. By controlling the R…

This works effectively as a De-Esser which can work wonders with the ELOP Side Chain toggle set at 200Hz.

Following the ELOP is Manley’s implementation of the FET Limiter. Extremely versatile, the FET limiter can yield great results from clean and predictable to grungy and distorted. This quality is what made some FET limiters so desirable. By controlling the Release, you can add different colour and behaviour. A CLIP setting lets you add even more crunch and distortion. The attack control works in a very unique way adding some of the characteristics of attack on compressors while retaining a zero-overshoot tolerance found in brick-wall limiters. In the SLAM! Mastering Version, Manley has included some extremely useful features such as 50%, LP Lim, Both and Clip modes. The 50% mode mixes an uncompressed signal with the limited signal giving you all the flavour of the FET limiter but with a much cleaner sound due to the mix. LP Lim focus its limiting in the low frequencies and reduces the gain reduction resulting in a brighter and more present signal.

All knobs are discrete detented switches to ensure precise control, repeatability and recall. With most steps being incremental by 1/2dB, 1dB or 2dB, it is possible to achieve very precise results.
