"I didn't know how  great this would be until I used it for a while in my mastering studio.

The best thing about the Backbone is being able to hear what the various gear does to the audio by simply pushing a button. Super fast to hear what the various EQ & compressors do to the sound of the music at a quick button press."

Completely a necessity in mastering!! There's plenty of Youtube videos complimenting this wonderful gizmo!


This unit has been loved & not used since 2018 when we closed mastering due a new landlord. 
I'm selling it due health problems. Manley gear is the best!
