Manley Ref C Sample Audio

Manley Ref C Sample Audio

So Guys, I'm in the market to get a new pre-amp for my Manley Ref C.

Now there are a few audio samples floating around here on gearslutz but I'm particularly interested in hearing the Manley paired with a BAE 1073.

Does anyone have this chain and can offer up some audio samples for me to hear? Vocals are of particular interest.

Surely Someone with a Manley Ref C can chime in?

Here for the gear

I have been using the Manley Ref C for Male Tenor Heavy Metal Vocals with the Great river ME-1 NV (It is supposed to be in the 1073 vain)

My chain for tracking in the home studio is Manley ref C >> Great River Preamp with the gain up >> Warm audio Wa2A with a liberal amount of compression.

I really like the results I get with this setup. the LA2A style comp and neve type preamp gives a bit of weight to the otherwise bright and modern sounding manley. I imagine you get a similar result with the BAE 1073.

I only have a processed example at hand of what it sounds like:

Hi Ikke, Thanks for posting. I heard the GR ME-1NV paired with the Manley but felt it was slightly in the opposite direction of what Im after. I feel the BAE would be a good choice in regards to the sound I'm interested in but I'm struggling to find anywhere here in the UK to demo it.

Maybe try to find a dealer that has a good return policy and try it out. these guys seem to do it in the uk and have BAE products

Hi Ikke, I've spoken to SX and sadly they don't offer a demo on the BAE. Gutted I can't find samples or demo it anywhere.
