I downloaded the demo, read up on the 'Pultec bass trick' and got a beneficial effect on a bass guitar track that needed a bit of 'definition'.
So, I bought PTC-2A immediately, installed with a key file without any problems and am happy so far. And you can't fault the current discounted price…

This is one of the finest pultec plugins i ever tried, and is as good as the $200 softube one
at $25 (after pp conversion), and desperately looking for a cheap character eq at a low cost since leaving reason and going back to logic with barely any plugins, you have actually filled a big hole for me,
thank you for the ridiculous price and fine tool, off to purchase now.
There is a very important bug i have pm'd you about as i couldn't talk about it publicly, you will understand when you read the PM.

Thanks for the information, we have done some tests, and while we haven't been able to replicate the issue you highlighted, the issue as described will not normally affect the functionality of the plugin, however, we continually develop and improve all the products and updates will be available (free to existing users) if necessary.
this is stellar. I don't know why someone said the other day in another topic the high end was harsh, it's smooth as butter.
Regarding the top-end EQ, all EQ's can be made to sound harsh in the right (or wrong) circumstances e.g. if you boost the midrange with a narrow bandwidth (and the same could be said of the original hardware), however the defining feature of these EQs is the way the passive filters behave, providing a generally smoother characteristic, for relatively large amounts of boost, than for example a conventional parametric.
Combined with the separate boost and attenuate controls which allow you to 'push and pull' the top-end, if there is anything in the original material which gives rise to harshness it can normally be tamed by pulling down on it with the HF attenuate.
