Pultec Passive EQ Collection
Pultec Passive EQ Collection
Great upgrade to legacy plus extras
Like all mkII upgrades the Pulteq EQ collection is a very nice upgrade over the legacy version. A bit more depth and character with the new version, though I still use the legacy on some sources. The filter is the sleeper plugin in this bundle. Don't have another filter that can so dramatically alter the frequency response while retaining and even sweetening the source material.
very useful plug-in.Great sound
Absolutely a MUST HAVE
This EQ collection changes my game something vicious! LOVEEEE it!
Pultec Passive EQ
very useful plug-in . I love it.
It is nice collection,but to be honest with you I use the Pultec pro legacy it is amazing
Pultec upgrade from legacy
Excellent modeling,I compared it to my real pultec that came out of a radio station in New Jersey.I brought 5 colleagues into the studio and did a blind fold test....no one could tell the difference between the hardware or the new plug in....
Excellent job men...as always...Iam saving my penny's for the A.M.S. Know

Pultec Eq Review
Love the sound and colour these eq's provide they really lift unheard harmonics out of a wide array of instruments.
The presets also help you achieve a quick dial up setting that you can tweak for a mix.
Ultimately this is a must have plug in
Soft or edgy
A good mix of different frequencies. Most are very subtle and one of them is very punchy.
Excellent for ambient and acoustic recording
I do mostly live in studio recoding with a lot of ambient sound and bleed. This is the best EQ I have found for usable coloration of off axis response. Of course the direct sound is wonderfully treated by this plug-in as well. I was not sure I was going to do this upgrade as the legacy is very good, but I'm very glad that I did.
A true classic
I loved the Legacy version - and I still use it when I'm mixing and running low on DSP - but the Pultec Passive EQ Collection is on another level. Low end warmth, punchy mids, or shimerring highs; this collection can do it all. Hell, half the time I just put it on my signal chain or my stereo bus and don't touch a single thing! If you run a full mix through this eq (with no adjustments whatsoever), you can still hear the Pultec working its magic. The best, most authentic Pultec emulation, hands down.
I've tried many Pultec emulations and while there are many that work well for me, this is above the rest.
This is a nice and smooth EQ! There is not one thing that would sound bad with it. I use it on drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and everything really!
Pultec Collection Baby!!!
Incredible eq!!! Love how it warms and thickens stuff up that's too shrill or gives a beautiful smooth sheen to anything that needs to be brightened. A crucial tool for my workflow. Use them all over my mixes on everything. Even on my mix buss! It rocks! \m/
A must have
2 reasons to buy it : first good sounding and efficient, next one of a cheapest UAD2 plugin. Bought it under 100€ with a coupon and at a christmas offer special prices.
Very Good Emulation
This Pultec plugin is extremely useful on just about all material.
It doesn't quite sound like the real thing - I have a unit and despite this plugin being used extensively, it doesn't sound as nice as the hardware.
Of course, all that means is that the hardware is *that good*. I use this plugin all the time, so who cares if it's identical? It's still excellent.
lives on my two bus.
eq simplicity perfected. so much vibe hidden under such simple controls. makes everything sound better!
Very unique EQ
I have tons of EQ plugins. This one stands above them all as an extremely flexible and colorful tool. It adds such a unique character unlike anything else. It can fatten a guitar, tighten a bass, and just make a full mix shine. The three components don't necessary need to be used together but when they are, it is an equalization arsenal. As stated, simply running a mix thru this plugin gives it a fresh character. Tweaking the freqs just a little can completely enhance an instrument or mix. I don't know why I waited so long to get this set. I guess I figured it was just another EQ, but I was quite mistaken!

This plugin is sweeter than brown sugar. If you need to brighten a track or add a solid bottom, look no further. It's hard to make this emulation sound bad.
How can an EQ add shine to something and keep it lovely and warm at the same time? For me I use this for vocal sweetening, full mix broad range top end boosts, and low end boosts on drums and bass. Adding 16khz at a broad boost and attenuating at 10khz by a few decibels really does do magical things to a vocal.
Silk, Buttery Smooth!
The knobs are like long throw faders but are knobs that are very smooth when boosting or cutting.
I use it on everything!
