Famed for its ultra-low noise floor and the cleanest of clean tube makeup gain, the Massive Passive gives you 2 channels with 4 overlapping equalization bands, as well as high-pass and low-pass filters.
The Massive Passive is the ultimate tool for introducing subtle detail while tracking, or adding the finishing touches on the end product. The controls are versatile enough to accommodate any production style, whether you take a surgical or more artistic approach.
Overall, the Massive Passive combines excellence in workmanship and audio innovation in a timeless design that allows you to come back to it repeatedly on every track you work on without ever thinking about digital recall.
