Postby OverTone DSP; Tue Oct 02, 2012 1:40 am OverToneDSP Pultec EQ 50% discount until end of October 2012

The PTC-2A is a Windows VST and Mac OSX Audio Unit emulation of the classic Pultec EQP-1A. Separate LF Boost and Attenuate controls allow simultaneous boost and cut, replicating the signature Pultec sounds while a smooth mid-range boost and top end attenuate permit large amounts of boost without becoming harsh. A transformer-coupled tube amplifier emulation further enhances the vintage qualities, something which is not always found in similar products.

Free demo available from the OverTone website, the full version can be purchased at a 50% discount until the end of October 2012.

Requires Mac OS X v10.5 or later and an Audio Unit compatible host application

or

Windows XP / 7 and a VST compatible host application.

It's strangely quiet so far about this new Pultec clone.

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… ;-)

@Spitfire31: Glad you liked the plugin - the low-end trick works well on Bass, but also on kick drum etc, it's one of the signature sounds the Pultec is famous for, and we're hopeful that the discounted price will continue to generate more interest in this plugin. You can also use the EQ to good effect on vocals and across an entire mix, the mid-range boost and top-end attenuate can similarly be used to 'push' and 'pull' the top end allowing large amounts of smooth high / mid boost without becoming harsh, just like the genuine hardware.

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.

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.

cheers,

Theo

@ttoz:

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.

I absolutely have become a huge admirer of this plugin. I bought it without expecting a whole lot . . . boy, was I wrong. This is a very, very nice Pultec clone. I really, really like the "tight" but very robust low end. The mids/high are nice too, but boy, is the low end ever nice.
Thanks & God Bless,

Just here to echo the praise this plug is getting.

Rounds out the low end nicely.
