Manley VOXBOX shares its fully featured mic preamp design with Manley's acclaimed Mono Mic Preamp, giving you a whole lot of headroom and Class A vacuum tube tone. All of these features make the VOXBOX a true sonic studio workhorse, in addition to a flexible Pultec-style mid frequency Equalizer, de-esser/limiter section, and Stereo Link function. Pultec-style Equalizer Manley took their Pultec-style Mid Frequency Equalizer up a few notches when they added it to the VOXBOX. It's now extended to 33 frequencies in 3 bands, so it offers six new frequencies from 20-150Hz as well as six new frequencies from 6.4-20kHz. With real inductors and Class A circuitry, the VOXBOX's Equalizer is set to serve up that "magical" sound.
An EQ input switch lets you patch in the line input, preamp output, or insert return. The switch also acts as a bypass switch for the preamplifier or external processors, for processing two different tracks. De-esser and Limiter section The VOXBOX's de-esser and limiter section gives you even more flexibility with the source. The peak limiter is based on the ELOP limiter design, and Manley added a passive LC network to take care of the de-essing.There are four carefully chosen notch frequencies - 3kHz, 6kHz, 9kHz, and 12kHz - to tame problematic frequencies. Plus, a fifth position offers up a LA-2A-style limiter - compress pre-EQ, then limit post-EQ.
You can also seamlessly and smoothly insert the de-esser as the music plays, so you only use it where you need it. Switchable VU meter The Manley VOXBOX is packed with a full-size, illuminated Sifam VU meter. An included 5-position switch lets you switch between levels - monitor line input, preamp output, and final output audio levels as well as compressor gain reduction and the de-esser/limiter action. Innovative "extras" Manley gave the VOXBOX a few clever "extras, " including warm-up muting circuitry that you can bypass using an internal switch, making the VOXBOX perfect for both the studio and the stage. Other welcome additions include extensive magnetic field containment, "smart grounding, " and silent switching.Manley transformers with nickel laminations in mu-metal cases. 2 Kohm mic input z with high current 48v phantom power built-in.
