The Bomb Factory Pultec EQH-2 is an equalizer plug-in that comes in the Bomb Factory Pultec bundle for Pro Tools. There are three plug-ins in this bundle, with this one basically being a simpler version of the most popular EQP-1A. I wasn't involved with installing or getting these plug-ins situated, as I don't own the bundle myself and have only used it at the studio where I'm working. Using the EQH-2 is quite easy, as it's just a two band equalizer. It really doesn't get any simpler than this, with each band having a few fixed frequencies to choose from to go along with boost and attenuation knobs. This is the standard Pultec make up, so those familiar with other software Pultec emulators or real hardware Pultecs will feel right at home here. No manual should be necessary, and I can't comment on this one in particular since I haven't had a need to check it out at all.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

We're running the Bomb Factory Pultec EQH-2 on a few different systems at the studio, as we have a number of rooms. The main room, like all of the rooms, is Pro Tools HD based, and this room in particular has a Mac Pro computer consisting of 10 GB of RAM and a dual 2.66 Intel Xeon processor. This is really more than enough to run this plug-in, and since we have Pro Tools HD anyway we don't get many performance problems with any plug-ins...

OVERALL OPINION

For whatever reason, I often find myself using this simpler Bomb Factory Pultec EQH-2 over the EQP-1A, even though it's got more options. It does really depend on what I'm looking to do, but sometimes it's nice to use this plug-in because it's just so plain and simple. It has a good sound quality and is fine for boosting or cutting at the given frequencies, although you don't have control over the set frequencies. This bundle as a whole is definitely nice to have around, but I've yet to add it to my home rig as it isn't completely necessary for me. If you're interested in these plug-ins for nostalgic purposes I'd recommend staying away since they won't live up to the hype, but if you want a simple and clean sounding EQ, the EQH-2 is definitely worth looking into.
