Universal Audio have announced the release of the Pultec Passive EQ Plug-In Collection. Picking up where UA's legacy Pultec emulations left off, the new Pultec collection revisits two must-have Pultec EQs -- the EQP-1A and MEQ-5 -- and adds the HLF-3C filter.
Lauded as the most popular outboard studio equalizers ever made, these classic Pultec EQs can be heard on countless hit recordings from the past five decades. The EQP-1A Program EQ is famous for bringing out individual frequency ranges without significantly altering neighboring frequencies, remaining smooth and musical even with extreme levels of boost. With the companion MEQ-5 Mid-Range Equalizer, producers can skillfully tweak the mid-range thanks to its abundance of band overlap and unique filter interactions. Finally, the HLF-3C adds 12 dB per octave low and high cut filters, providing broad, retro-flavored tone sculpting.
The new Pultec Passive EQ Collection models the complex transformer and tube amplifier nonlinearities of these must-have tools, in addition to their unique filter interactions. The result is a dead-on emulation of the Pultec's signature air, silkiness, and warmth.
Pultec Passive EQ Collection features include:
Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide
