Expert Review

Considering it packs so many intricate components within a single unit, the Manley Core is very easy to use, with a clear and intuitive design and interface. Powered by a Class A tube mic preamp hand-wound with Manley transformers, this unit will make your vocals or acoustic instruments sound incredible. The direct input employs the same circuit as the company’s popular SLAM! unit, which lends a similar impeccability to direct instrument recording, too. A Baxandall EQ offers low/high shelving, and sweepable mid frequencies for intricate sound shaping. A fast attack FET brick wall limiter protects your converters from clipping while recording. The meter display can be adjusted to showcase input, output, and compressor gain reduction levels.Rating: 4.25/5
