This special bundle from Pulsar Audio gets you the powerful combination of their Massive passive EQ with the Mu compressor.
Pulsar Massive is an emulation of the Manley Massive Passive* EQ that ispresent in almost every mastering studio in the world. This machine was designed as a synthesis of the best passive equalizers of the last 70 years, and several distinct features in the design give it an absolutely unique sound.
The fully parallel topology of the EQ gives completely different kind of response to a digital equalizer with the same settings. A parallel equalizer’s tonal corrections aren’t cumulative, but tend to interact with each other, resulting in a more intuitive and fluid way to shape the frequency spectrum.
Pulsar’s MU is the most faithful emulation of a modern yet legendary tube compressor/limiter – perfect glue for mixing and mastering.
There are several reasons to use a variable-bias tube compressor. One is the exceptional compression transparency that this kind of compressor can achieve, even when pushed into extreme gain reduction. Another – and perhaps the most common – is their ability to add cohesion or “glue” to buses, whole mixes and masters.
