Pultec Plug-in Collection For UAD

UA models the EQP-1A, MEQ-5, and HLF-3C EQs for UAD-2 and Apollo      10/07/13

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:

  • Faithful circuit reproduction of the most popular outboard studio equalizers ever made.
  • Models entire electronic path of three Pultec EQs -- including tube amplifiers and transformers -- for colorful, highly-musical distortion characteristics.
  • EQP-1A Program EQ provides silky, vintage highs and tight, focused lows using combined boost/cut resonant shelf dip.
  • MEQ-5 Mid-Range EQ features broad, overlapping frequency selections for fine peak and dip midrange filter control.
  • HLF-3C EQ delivers 12 dB cut filter for tonal sculpting or special effects.
  • Includes artist presets from Neal Cappellino (Alison Krauss, Brad Paisley), Jacknife Lee (U2, R.E.M.,Taylor Swift), David Isaac (Prince, Eric Clapton, Robin Thicke) & more.
