Acustica Audio Magenta4
Magenta3 reproduced Manley’s revered Massive Passive. Living up to its numerical suffix, Magenta4 emulates four Manley pieces (all unofficial). Magenta4 Pre gives you the warming preamp of the Manley Slam. Magenta4 EQ is a revamped Massive Passive sim. Magenta4 Comp recreates the Manley Vari-Mu in mono or stereo. And bringing it all together is the full Magenta4 channel strip, which seems to take the concept of Manley’s Core channel strip and expand it with choice elements from the others. It’s €199, all in.
