John Frye Mixed w/ Bernie GrundmanThis box will take away jobs from most of mastering & mix engineers! Anyone hip hop or R&B label should invest in this unit and streamline your workflow. If they would have included the tape emulator, this box would be unstoppable. Manley, TubeTech, & all others kick rocks!

Mind blowing sound and unlimited warmth and powerThis thing is a monster. Clear winner I pass all my tracks through this mbp before mixing in box and the way it makes the sound fuller and full of presence is unthinkable. So warm and powerfull. Also the slik is just amazing. Stereo field editor is just awesome . Even passing a mix track for fine tuning gives great results . Brilliant brilliant gear to have.

MBP is a MUST HAVE!!!!!When I received this unit my hands were shaking with anticipation!! I had read about what it could do but hearing it on the first few mixes was just amazing!!! The compression and limiting is unbelievably transparent, I have seen up to 12db of reduction with no artifacts!!The stereo field editor is jaw dropping, the silk mode(s) are...Neve silky!!!! Speaking o the silk modes, if you want to add color these are awesome. I have had excellent results using the silk + mode on electronic music to smooth out harshness and add warmth. Let's just say that to purchase a bus processor and also get the option to add the famous color of a Neve console is the bargain of the century. On top of that the plethora of features include some awesome shelving EQ'S. This unit could take the place of three separate units and as a result is a true time saver. I can get phenomenal results in extremely short periods of time. Don't get me wrong, this thing is full featured and it takes some time to understand it's capabilities and uses but once you get the hang of it you will wonder how you mixed and/or mastered without it. in my opinion this is a MUST HAVE and an instant classic!!
