When Ollie Summerland and Gene Shenk hand-crafted the first Pulse Technologies passive program equalizer in 1951, they had no idea they were transforming an industry. But like a Stradivarius, their little garage-built, made-to-order device was copied by every EQ-maker for decades, and their early EQP-1A's still bring $4,000 plus on the used market — if you're lucky enough to find one.
The reason for all the fuss is the Pultec's unparalleled sound and control. Words like "airy," "silky," and "warm" are often used to describe the Pultec's effect on vocals, guitar, bass, kick drums, and full mixes — pretty much everything.
The new Pultec Passive EQ Collection for UAD-2 and Apollo hardware is the ultimate plug-in emulation of Pulse Techniques' original passive EQs. With painstaking amplifier section modeling now onboard, the Pultec EQ Collection "breathes" like the original hardware.

A Note about UAD Powered Plug-ins
UAD-2 and UAD-1 Powered Plug-Ins run exclusively on Universal Audio's UAD DSP Accelerator Cards. All available Powered Plug-Ins are included in the UAD Software Installer/Updater Package; and every Plug-In title has a separately activated 14-day trial -- so users can try before they buy, at their own pace. Once a user decides to purchase a Plug-In, they can click on the Plug-In toolbar "Buy" button, which automatically takes them to the www.uaudio.com website and carts the plug in; or this can be done manually via browsing our webstore. Once the purchase is complete, a downloadable Authorization File is made available. Users simply drag and drop this Auth. File into the UAD meter, and the Plug-In is authorized. UAD-1 users can transfer Plug-In licenses to UAD-2 format for free (one time only). Via Customer Support, Universal Audio also allows registered UAD owners to sell their UAD card(s) with Plug-In licenses, transferring the licenses to the new card owner (subject to Universal Audio approval).
