Pultec Pro EQ Demo

Universal Audio's Pultec-Pro combines the Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, two of the most sought-after hardware EQs, into one plugin that is the very essence of vintage EQ emulation. The Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer has been out of production for some time, and is the ultimate compliment to the Pultec EQP-1A. Most studios liked to have one of each for full bandwidth vintage EQ, and the MEQ-5 section allows you to boost and cut midrange bands with the same silky smoothness and personality of the original MEQ-5 hardware. Either EQ section can be enabled or disabled separately, saving DSP power on your UAD. Like the EQP-1A, the MEQ-5 was meticulously modeled with the attention to detail you expect from Universal Audio.
