Manley Labs Stereo Variable Mu Limiter/Compressor by EW1
Bought the Vari Mu several years ago. It was one of the first high-end hardware pieces I ever purchased. I love it. Some hardware is sold with the rationalization that there is a cumulative effect as gear is introduced into the signal path. The Manley Vari Mu is NOTICEABLE by itself. I've been stymied trying to understand why a mix wasn't sounding good only to find that I left the Vari Mu out of the hardware chain. I actually phoned EveAnna Manley to say thanks & send my compliments on the Vari Mu. It's the best piece of audio hardware I've ever purchased (really).
