The classic vintage Pultec mid-range EQ
Emulating the classic vintage Pultec MEQ-5 mid-range EQ, the PTM-5A replicates the sought-after passive filter character of the original, providing a versatile equalizer capable of subtle sonic enhancement or adding more obvious bite to the mid-range to help elements of the mix stand out.
Ideal for acoustic instruments, drums and vocals, the PTM-5A perfectly complements the more familiar PTC-2A vintage Pultec EQ, much the same as the hardware MEQ-5 and EQP-1A units.
