Producer/Engineer Tony Platt on the Pultec Passive EQ Collection: “These are excellent versions of these iconic units!” – Universal Audio – VIDEO – Tutorial

Tony Platt:

Delighted that Universal Audio have released the native version of the Pultec Passive EQ Collection. These are excellent versions of these iconic units!

The Pultec Passive EQ Collection includes three legendary EQs that give you all the analog magic of the original hardware right in your DAW. Sculpt your low end and add silky highs with the EQP-1A, shape your mid frequencies with the MEQ-5, and remove unwanted frequencies with the HLF-3C.
These astonishingly accurate EQs are nearly indistinguishable from the original analog hardware, giving you the same rich tones used by the producers of John Mayer, Daft Punk, Mariah Carey, and more.

Craft Legendary Low End: The EQP‑1A

Make confident broadstroke EQ moves and get the vibiest low‑end you’ve ever heard. From bass guitar and synth bass to kick drums, you’ll be amazed at the tight, focused thump, with the twist of a couple knobs.

Customize Your Mids: The MEQ‑5

Add vibrancy and depth to vocals, guitars, and keys — the important “power region” of your mix — with the MEQ‑5’s two bands of mid boost and single band of midrange dip, complete with unique filter interactions of the vintage hardware.

Get Cleaner Mixes and Effects: The HLF‑3C

With just two controls, the HLF‑3C will give you retro, lo‑fi effects on your vocals and instruments, or let you surgically remove troublesome frequencies like excessive hiss and rumble that can build up and muddy your mixes.
