UaD Pultec Passive EQ collection

Definitely the best Pultec emulation I've ever used, it brings a very present analog coloring.
UaD's Pultec Passive EQ collection has already earned a place in my Mixing Chain.

Pultec EQ bundle

Excellent EQ bundle, they're much more useful than you'd think. No regrets here. This is the best one I've heard. And it's doing the Pultec boost attenuate punch quite well.

A warm blanket for your music with the precious Pultec

Just running a signal through the Pultec EQP-1A, without turning any knob, already can give my music a desired character. I love putting this on my sampled strings, for warmth and a little more energy. It also makes instruments or aux signals sound more lively, coming out of the speakers just a little more (not volume wise). The knobs do react very smooth, blending the sound in, hard to go wrong with this one. And also love the GUI's simple appearance, it keeps you focused on the jmusic. Glad UAD has these big time sales regularly where these amazing plugins are so reachable.

eQ musical polyvalent

j'ai découvert la musicalité (légendaire et décrite mainte fois) de cet eQ qui fait sonner "justement" chaque instrument en modifiant simplement quelques potentiomètres (chose impossible avec des eQ classiques)
ils ont maintenant leur place sur chaque pistes de mon mixage

After trying many Pultec's ITB - this is the one I use the most.

When I think of the Pultec sound I fondly think of how this pair brings out the musical clarity of every mix we do.
We do a lot mix wise, from Grammy winning EDM tunes, to mixing a super tight local jazz band of pro's looking for their live sound to tape, this one consistently delivers.
The MEQ-5 probably gets more use on channel duties for electronic music and EDM drums than any of our other tools. Nothing keeps the transient clarity, while getting rid of those hard 1.5-4k klacky, or that hashy unmusical midrange tones.
The HP and LP filters are fantastic for shaping drum loops and focusing them prior to hitting Oxide hard to obliterates headroom eating peaks.
We also have the "Pultec" bass trick on the Main buss, too...
Out of all of the Pultec emulations we have on our system from some awesome developers, UA is consistently at the top of the pick every time.
