newManley Manley SLAM!

Stereo valve limiter and a class A mic preamp
  • Description
  • Features

The Manley SLAM! is a stereo valve limiter and a class A mic preamp designed to increase the apparent loudness of your music to optimise your signal for digital recording.

First on the SLAM! is a dual channel valve mic preamp with phase reversal, high pass filter, and +48V phantom power. The preamp delivers a hefty 60dB of gain before reaching the limiter which adds another 20dB. A variable input attenuator is also included to allow for the handling of loud sources. A DI input is also included which features a dual impedance system. Plug yout jack-in all the way and the input impedance is 100k Ohms, while if inserted halfway, the impedance increases to 20 MOhms.

Following the mic preamp we find 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! uses the set-and-forget two knob approach, with controls ov…

Following the mic preamp we find 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! uses the set-and-forget two knob approach, with controls over the Dynamics and Level. A Line switch lets you use the line stage with outher sources while the High pass filter provides different settings, including a 200Hz which is tailored for vocals by removing unwanted low-end frequencies and add a subtle de-essing.

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 brickwall limiters.
