The new Pulse-Tec EQs plug-in is a faithful emulation of the legendary PULTEC passive analog equalizers range from the 50’s. The hardware has been heard on countless records and are still being used today.
The Pulse-Tec EQs v2 plug-in adds an adjustable analog circuit module that replicates the complex behavior of analog tubes and transformers. It generates a pleasant analog saturation effect, to any sound you feed into it.
V2 features a completely rewritten DSP engine, a brand new resizable UI with two skins, a new HLF-3 filter module, along with many other improvements.
The Pulse-Tec EQs include 3 equalization modules modeled after the original Pultec hardware, all in a single plug-in. Each module can be individually disabled or used simultaneously for full range equalization.
The HLF-3 is a vintage filter module made of two high quality 12 dB/octave high-pass and lowpass filters. Each band provides 10 frequency options and can be individually used or disabled.
The MEQ-5 is a midrange equalizer which consists of two peak boost bands and one dip attenuation band. As an extra addition to the original design, the mid band filter offers 2 dip filters that can be used simultaneously.
The EQP-1A section is composed of 3 filters: a low shelf, high peak and high shelf. The low band can be simultaneously boosted and attenuated to achieve the classic “low-end trick”, while the high peak and the high shelf can only be respectively boosted and attenuated.
The PRE-2S is the master section of the entire EQ chain. Use it to adjust the input and output levels, the amount of analog character and the dry/wet mixing ratio.
