An Industry-standard Mastering Tool

The Variable Mu Mastering Version is the perfect addition to any professional mastering facility. In fact, since its introduction, it's quickly become an industry standard mastering tool - and it's the limiter/compressor responsible for an incredible amount of hit records over the last decade. 

The Manley Variable Mu Mastering Version's detented switches let you easily dial up or log favorite settings. Likened to "pouring a bowl of sweet cream over a mix," if you're looking for the ultimate in mastering weaponry for your pro sound armory, you'll find it in the Manley Variable Mu Mastering Version.

Behaves much like the vintage Fairchild 670
The Variable Mu uses a compression/limiting technique similar to the beloved vintage Fairchild 670. As "mu" means gain, the Variable Mu Mastering Version offers true variable gain by constantly re-biasing the unique 5670 dual triode at the center of the peak-reducing and compression action, allowing the tube to smoothly change its gain. 

The Variable Mu Mastering Version offers a soft-knee 1.5:1 compression ratio while its limit mode is sharper knee, starting at 4:1 and moving to 20:1 when limiting over 12dB. The knee softens the more limiting is used. To achieve more sounds, you can creatively use distortion by turning up the input and turning down the output while minimizing your use of compression.

Premium switches, for logging and recalling settings
Unlike the standard Variable Mu, which uses smooth-moving pots, the mastering-dedicated Variable Mu Mastering Version offers detented steps. This way, you can easily log your settings or recall them. The steps are built with 1% metal film resistors on sealed gold-contact Grayhill switches.
