Pultec Pro EQ Legacy Plug-In

Silky Smooth Mid-Range Boost & Cut Compliment a Full-Bandwidth Vintage EQ

Universal Audio’s Pultec Pro Legacy plug-in combines the Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer and the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, two of the most sought-after hardware EQs, into a single plug-in. The Pultec MEQ-5 Midrange Equalizer has been out of production for some time, and is the ultimate compliment to the Pultec EQP-1A. The MEQ-5 EQ section allows you to boost and cut midrange bands with the same silky smoothness and personality of the original hardware. Either EQ section can be enabled or disabled separately, saving DSP power on your UAD-1 or UAD-2 card. Like the EQP-1A, the MEQ-5 was meticulously modeled with all of the attention to detail you expect from Universal Audio.

  • The Glitch Mob

    "We use the [UAD] Pultec plug-in a lot because we dull things out, then warm them up. For synth sounds that we really want to chop through the mix, we add the Pultec to give some boost on the top."

    Fab Dupont

    (Shakira, Santigold)

    “The [UAD] Pultec Pro, along with the Plate 140, are the two main reasons why I can't work without a UAD-2 card in my system.”

    Paul Smith

    (Dengue Fever)

    “Whether it’s the pro version with additional features, or the good old original, the [UAD Pultec] plug-in sounds so damn sweet.”

    Paul Moak

    (Third Day, Matthew Mayfield)

    "The mix REALLY came to life when i strapped the Pultec-Pro and the Fairchild [plug-ins] across the bus."

    Henry Jackman

    (The Da Vinci Code)

    "With UAD's Pultec EQs, you can really crank the top end without it sounding artificial or displeasing."

  • Adam Fuest

    (Future Music)

    "Needless to say, if I came across a [hardware] Pultec that sounded like the UAD version, I would be very happy with it."

    Dweezil Zappa

    (Zappa Plays Zappa)

    "I really like the Pultec Pro. I use it pretty frequently on at least 85 to 90 percent of the stereo mixes."

    first impressions for sample based use
    by S. Hudson (Tuesday 2 July, 2013)

    Real nice tool for putting back those bits you wanna hear. Top end is silky and twiddle the attenuate roles off or blends. Because of the smooth smudgy effect it imparts on loops an drum it really bites alot better. Its the first eq i think of now. Not an envelope shaper eq more a add abit of … Read More

    Great character - impossible to make it sound bad
    by L. Wolfe (Tuesday 19 March, 2013)

    I haven't used a hardware Pultec but if this plugin is even 1/4 as good it truly is the holy grail it's rumored to be. The top is open and airy, the phasey tube quality is warm and pleasant on guitar and voice. You can get very aggressive without sounding awful. The MEQ is a very useful addition for … Read More

    Great start.
    by S. Grush (Thursday 4 July, 2013)

    I felt this was a great starting point for my ear to settle into the UAD line. I hit the Pultec on a hi-hat and guitar lead and loved what the subtle EQ moves did for the mix. I don't think I'll use this EQ to do a lot of heavy lifting for my mixing, but it has its purpose. … Read More
