Pultec Pulse Techniques




Walk into any world-class control room and you'll see one or more classic tube Pultecs - it's as true now as it was in 1978! The Pultec EQP-1A two-band equalizer, the modern-day re-creation of the legendary tube EQ, can give your tracks the massive bass, silky air, and addictive warmth that made the original a studio standard. Pulse Techniques is back, hand-crafting their classic EQs without compromise or "enhancement" to the original designs. New Pultecs like the EQP-1A contain only original-spec components and are dead ringers for their vintage ancestors. It may sound like magic, but it's time-tested and proven - the Pultec EQP-1A equalizer can make any track sound better.


  • Boost, cut, or both - it all sounds great

Take a look at the Pultec EQP-1A and you'll see it's not designed like your typical equalizer. The two-band design basically gives you flexible low shelving, along with broad-bandwidth midrange peak control. Because the boost and attenuate controls work independently you can use an old trick to add weight to the bass region while also notching a bit above the cutoff point, by boosting and attenuating at the same time (try it on kick drum and you'll never look back). On the high-frequency side, you can set separate ranges for the boost and attenuation. Said another way, you can boost at 12kHz and cut at 5k, adding "air" to a track without increasing presence.
Fortify your rack with "True Blue"
You've heard them on countless hits. The 3-rackspace blue Pultec EQP-1A was originally made from 1961 until 1971, when it was replaced by the 2U silver-faced EQP-1A3. While the EQP-1A3 was functionally identical to the EQP-1A, many engineers and studio owners swear by the original 3U "true-blue" unit. This inspired design places a tube-driven, push-pull gain-makeup stage after the EQ section to eliminate the gain insertion losses typical of passive filters. Intended for broad program EQ, the EQP-1A gives you four low boost/cut frequencies, three high-cut frequencies, and your choice of seven HF boost points, along with a bandwidth control for shaping high-boost Q.
