“The Manley summing mixer I have this constantly set up as 16 stereo auxiliaries in Logic. The second you split up your tracks, they open up massively. It’s like they’re stressed out when they’re going through channel one and two, and when they have their own channel on the Manley they just relax.
"When I was using just one channel and I had a compressor on output 3+4 for my kick, as soon as I sent it there, the kick got a lot bigger and the track had more space. And I just thought, ‘How big can it get?’, so I got this and it’s amazing.”
"Below that is the Manley Massive Passive I use this for strings a lot ’cause it’s so smooth. There’s a mastering version with stepped knobs but this is the pot version. I love it.”
