Waves Release Jack Joseph Puig Collection


After previously offering the producer’s preferred presets for several of their plug-ins (see May 02 story below), Waves have now released the Jack Joseph Puig Collection consisting of models of the Fairchild 670, the Pultec EQP-1A, and the Pultec MEQ-5. Waves tell us that they have precision-modelled these rare pieces and captured every detail of their rich harmonic complexity. Here’s all the details in their own words…
Throughout the vinyl era, the original Fairchild 670 compressor was ubiquitous: From the recording studio to the record lathe, the Fairchild was renowned for its advanced compression techniques and incomparable sound. We’ve captured every distinctive nuance of Jack Joseph Puig’s Fairchild 670 along with every detail of its rich harmonic complexity.

  • Up to 24bit, 192kHz Resolution

The Pultec EQP-1A is renowned for its unique ability to boost and cut the same frequencies simultaneously, thereby creating a resonant shelf. The PuigTec EQP-1A is a remarkable replication of Jack Joseph Puig’s original hand-crafted unit, heard on dozens of popular recordings from artists including Weezer, Black Crowes, and Panic At The Disco.
