Love it!

It has very few weaknesses. I have tried it and liked it on everything except stereo buss, vocals and guitars. It will be a classic. The company dissed me, but I still think they make some amazing stuff. What made you ask about this piece of gear? What do you like it on?

I used to use the Massive Passive alone and didn't like the sound of its highs until I started using it with the VariMu.

Somehow the two complement each other and the highs end up not so harsh (for the lack of a better word) since the VariMu darkens it a bit....

Thanks for the feedback.

I asked because it was a piece recommended to me by the thrillfactor; a mixer who contributes a lot of very good info here.

It is very popular here but people seem divided on what it's strengths are and I was curious about your opinion.

I use it on drums, bass and miscellaneous samples.

I haven't made it work on vocals yet although i want to spend some time really focussing on the mids and vocals with it.

I find the high end a little disappointing.

Do you like any software EQ for vocals particularly?

Thanks!

Hi Rene,

I always mentioned that in order to make it work really well on a lead vocal, its important what comp you use to follow it.

Certain comps highlight the mids in different ways.

Also for the air freqs i do tend to use something else(mainly the GML8200).
