The classic signature sounds of one of the world's most sought-after vintage EQs, emulated for Mac and PC.
Even with modern digital equalizers, low-end boost can come at the expense of focus and definition.
The elegant simplicity of the vintage Pultec design is renowned for its signature 'low-end trick' - the ability to boost and cut low frequencies at the same time, adding 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 with separate boost and attenuate controls, while innovative algorithms provide a genuine analogue filter response without requiring conventional CPU intensive techniques.
A transformer-coupled tube amplifier emulation further enhances the vintage qualities, adding subtle character even with the EQ bypassed.

Separate LF Boost and Attenuate Controls   Simultaneous low frequency boost and cut, emulating the classic Pultec 'Low-end trick'.
Physical Control Weighting   Replicates the 'feel' as well as the look of high quality rotary controls.
Passive Filters   6dB / Octave passive filter emulation maintains the smooth frequency response and desirable control interaction of the original vintage designs.
Transformer-coupled gain stage   Similar to the original Pultec EQs, the passive filters are followed by a transformer-coupled tube amplifier stage which further enhances the vintage qualities.
Analogue Filter Modelling   Analogue Filter Modelling algorithms recreate natural analogue filter curves, without requiring high sample rates or CPU intensive upsampling, allowing more plugin instances in a typical DAW.
