I love outboard gear. It is like an addiction, every time, I turn on our MANLEY VOXBOX and the yellow light in the meter sections comes up. This is true old school, the sound is analog and warm especially with recoding vocals. This is not comparable to any plugIn, in my opinion ! I don’t wanna drop too much props on MANLEY here, there are so much great PreAmps out there. What do you use? What do you like most?
