"A fantastic sounding plug-in" -
Even with modern digital equalizers, low-end boost can often come at the expense of focus and definition.
In contrast, the elegant simplicity of the vintage Pultec EQP-1A design, renowned for its signature 'low-end trick' - the ability to boost and cut low frequencies at the same time - adds powerful, tight bass boost without sacrificing detail.
The PTC-2A emulates the signature vintage Pultec sounds, replicating the unique ability to sculpt the EQ curve using separate boost and attenuate controls, while innovative DSP technology reproduces the desirable analogue filter response, without additional latency or CPU intensive processing.
A transformer-coupled tube amplifier emulation further enhances the vintage qualities, adding subtle character even with the EQ stage bypassed, just like the original vintage hardware.
