okay due to the guidelines I am not allowed to say "This thing rocks!!!!!!" so I won't... yeah I like to obey me some rules.
I recently started using pro tools again since all my VST hosts were lacking in one or more respect (be it stability, reliability or recording features). with my upgrade to Pro Tools 7 came the Pultec Bundle from Bomb Factory ("hey isn't this about the URS FullTec!" - "Gimme a sec, we'll get to that soon enough")
while this Pultec emulations sounded very good they had a shortcoming... they come in different flavours, and one has to choose if it's the midrange or the top and bottom end that is important right now....
NOW THE FullTec takes a different approach.... it combines the best aspects of different Pultec Flavours and combines them into one big amazing sounding Program EQ.
When working on the bass or the high frequencies you get seperate boost and attenuation controls which means you can use them both at the same time - now why would someone want to do that: well due to the architecure of the Pultecs those two knobs can cause subtle and sweet sounding phase shifts - which means you can get a different sound without changing the volume of the frequencies.
but it's a hard thing to describe it's really the best just to try it... well you'd need an iLok for that, since the demo version needs to be authorized. and while I have absolutely no problem with iLoks some users don't or don't have enough USB slots left.
anyway this beast really sounds wicked... and it looks even better than the BLT (the blue is sooo soothing)
All in all it is one of the smoothest & lushest EQs I have used so far.
It doesn't come with presets so it only gets one point in the category from me, but since it is so fun too use and EQ presets are pretty much worthless anyway it's a minor thing. if you still need some presets I'm happy to share the ones I came & come up with myself (which are in RTAS format btw).
sorry if I sound like a fanboy - I guess I just am. I love my FullTec
