Everything is as it should be.


Solid beyond mention.


The Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer and Pultec MEQ-5 plug-ins are faithful electronic reproductions of the classic hardware equalizers. Our DSP wizards have ensured that every revered sonic nuance of these vintage processors are faithfully maintained.
In designing the Pultec equalizer plug-ins, we performed detailed analyses of the signal path and equalization characteristics of selected well-maintained, in-spec Pultec equalizers used regularly in professional studios. A “golden unit” was selected, and the resulting model reproduces the measured equal- ization and signal path characteristics to within a fraction of a dB mean error for all knob settings.
All of the unique features of the original Pultec EQ’s are included in the plug- ins, including the separate boost and attenuation controls, the smooth, sweet top end, and the ability to dial in seemingly dangerous amounts of boost with- out getting into trouble. All front panel controls are included, and all of the knob tapers are accurately modeled. The Pultec has long been a choice of re- cording and mastering engineers for its ability to bring out individual fre- quency ranges without significantly altering other frequencies. In addition, the Pultec is one of those magical pieces of gear that makes audio program sound better just by passing through it. The sophisticated modeling technol- ogy used in the Pultec plug-ins captures both of these key attributes.
The EQP-1A can control three frequency ranges simultaneously, using three groups of interacting parameters.
The first group controls the low frequencies and has three controls: boost, at- tenuation, and frequency select. The second group controls the high frequen- cies and has three controls: boost, bandwidth, and frequency select. The third group also controls the highs and has two controls: attenuation amount and frequency select.
