Manley  ...Manley – Manley Slam!
SLAM! stands for “Stereo Limiter and Micpre” and it pretty much describes what it will do to most VU meters. Manley had to put a switch on this limiter to drop its internal VU meters down 3 & 6dB to keep the poor little needles from bending-it’ll get LOUD fast (hence the exclamation mark). And on top of being an amazing pair of (actually four) Limiters, and Class A tube mic preamps, it also has masters degrees in DI, AtoD and DtoA, VU and PPM but that was too much for an acronym. When it comes to classic gear, especially classic limiters, we can all agree numbers like LA2s, 1176s, 2264s, and others come to mind. What if all those sounds were to be found in one stereo tube unit. Interested? Manley combined their favorite Electro-Optical circuit (ELOP) with a fast FET based brick-wall limiter reminiscent of some cool classics. Manley added a sidechain filter that can remove low frequencies that makes it more useful for a variety of tasks, while retaining that easy, “it just works” quality that has made it a favorite for vocals everywhere. The FET-based limiter has different desirable characteristics that both optimizes the signal for digital recording, due to the brick-wall capability, and lets you dial in how clean or crunchy, or punchy, and how loud and proud you want it. Get in: The Manley SLAM! starts with tube mic preamps on both channels with switchable phantom power and phase reverse. Manley provided plenty of gain for you in this tube circuit, up to 60dB with 20dB more in the limiter-plenty for soft singers using low output ribbon mics. The input attenuator is right up front, like a variable pad so your loud rock ‘n’ rollers won’t cause a problem either. Track direct with the Direct Instrument input or bring your line level inputs into the Manley SLAM! for processing.
