The PULTEC Harmonics is good. You can't get this effect simply from a EQ like fabfilter.

Simply amazing! Makes everything sound better and will smash your expectations!

I bought this plugin because it was on sale and I didn't know what to expect but I chucked it on, and even with this simple, 2-band EQ and 2 knobs for each band, it has the ability to make everything sound better. My mind is blown 10x over. It's insane. It's amazing. It literally is the only tonal EQ you will ever need.

Amazing sound with minimum efforts

This plugin will make your tracks sound better just by putting it on a channel. Then only a few knob twists and you will be amazed by how it opens up the sound, making it thicker, more open and cleaner at the same time. Its low frequency boost/attenuation trick is invaluable when it comes to bass or mix bus processing, taking a lot of guesswork out of the picture.
I haven't been able to work with its analogue counterpart, but out of all other Pultec emulations this one is surely the best I've used, as it gives great results almost instantly. That is what a great mixing tool should be!

Finally updated from the legacy!

Loving it but why did they remove the old all-in-one legacy plugin called "pro"? I like the freedom of using them all in one slot, I don't get it..

The Frank's Louisianna Hot Sauce of EQ's. I use them on everything!

The real deal EQs. The Frank's Louisianna Hot Sauce of EQ's. I use them on everything! Low DSP utilization and the bonus of receiving them natively make this collection a best buy as well.

It’s pretty simple. You need certain processors in your rig. Pultec Eq is one of those. Very smooth and musical to the sound. I enjoy using this on everything.

The color this brings to tracks is awesome. Use it on individual tracks or the entire mix.
