It's a nice pultec emulation. works very well but the bells curves and the harmonic distortion is less pleasant of the paid counterparts. So if you're completely new to the pultec sound this is a good first foot in the door but if you like it an upgrade is necessary.

If you have logic you don't need this plugin since you have the vintage tube eq that does the same job and in my opinion, sounds a little bit better.
