Having used the real thing many years ago, I can say pretty safely that this behaves the way it should. It's a 'broad brush' approach to EQ; those expecting to find a tool to make wild, radical changes might want to look elsewhere. But for those who want a device that reliably 'nices up' signals without imparting anything extreme, this is your go-to. Hell, it's my go-to, actually...I find it winds up on my master bus all the time as an 'I don't even need to think twice'-type of choice for zeroing-in overall spectral content. It also has a few frequency settings not present on most other Pultec emulators, which is a big plus. You can't go wrong here.
A great EQ for broad, non-surgical applications. I find PTEq-X to be a useful tool in mixing guitars and for vocal treatments, as well as a handy addition to my mastering chain. If you're looking for an EQ that allows you to cut or boost exact frequencies, you may want to look elsewhere. But, for adding growl to your heavy guitars, or removing nasally frequencies from a vocal performance, PTEq-X is your go-to.
Love it! It's a really fantastic piece of software except for randomly muting some tracks. Disabling/enabling solves that until it randomly mutes the track again. As this happened on a kick track first I assumed it was a peaking problem but no - completely random and not reproducable. Can work for hours and suddenly the kick is missing from the track..so I've got to switch off/on. But I wouldn't bother doing this if it wouldn't sound so amazing.
Back to the plugin, when i use this in ableton and reopen a project, some sounds are completely panned to the right or i get a huge amount of destortion. By swinging of the tube or fiddle around with the bandwidth knob fixes it. But when u have running several instances of this plugin its a mess to see which one of this plugin causes the problem.
Will there be a update of this one? It's by far the best pultec i ran into (free that is)
