Pultec Passive EQ Collection
Pultec Passive EQ Collection
I wish I had more than 5 stars to give it
Title says it all. I love it! I just wish it was all in one wrapper like the legacy pro.
Are EQs allowed to be this good?
Fire up the 14 day trial. Stick on the drum buss. Dont even tweak it. Listen.
Ordinary analog EQ
This plugin wasn't shock me at first time...neither at second. It has very own subtle sound,useful on guitars,vocal ,something natural...it adds "analogness" as well. But it isn't groundbreaking EQ. It is completely useless in dance productions,in my opinion.
P.S. HLF thing is outstanding. I use it all the time,this is only reason i purchased this plugin.
I Like It A Lot
Nothing Harsh about it. Awesome for drums. I have a bad room to work with. Helps a lot.
es una de las mejores emulaciones de el pultec sus curva bueno para mazterin mezcla se me quitaron el deseo de comprarme el orijinal aunque no lo e comparado pero a la hora de la verdad pagar por este vs 1500 por un clone creo que me quedo por siempre con la vercion uad
First all I'm not a plug in eq fan, at all.
Most all of them sound like some kind of unusable kids toy.
I just A/B'd this today with the HW EQP-1A that lives here at my studio Orbit Audio in Seattle.
It amazed me, I was shocked.
It reacted the same, we set the SW to what the HW was and listened...closely.
The HW was a little tiny bit smoother but the difference was hardly what I thought it would be.
Dang UAD...a plug in? WOW!
The pultec EQ's have been remade by several companies as plugins but the UAD's are my favorite. Like most of the vintage remakes UAD do they seem to be accurate to the original and love to be driven. I find these sound great when you start to crank things and settle them in to the tracks your using them on. My only complaint is there is no complete channel strip like they have on the legacy versions.
This is it!
This review should be about the Pultec Hardware. The plugin is not close, not almost, not somewhat comparable. It is EXACT! Never thought I would see the day, to actually feel a plugin giving me the same feeling as the hardware. UA Collections series Pultec is all of that. Purchased it after demoing for a day. I was going to buy something else but got sucked in by this Beast. I've used the old Pultec emulation, it was ok, like other emulations, ok.
Also bought the UA 1176 Collection, same vibe, a new special sauce technology. After you listen to this Pultec, you will stare into space, grinning. Dreaming of the new sounds to come...
Nice work UA!
Pultec older version had been my go to EQ to tone and make everything at their distinctive spot ... to make things cuts through or blend in a musical and instinctive way .
The new version... oh hahaha my god !!! It's sounding so a magazine ... so much better . I knew it would (like the 1176 new version), but seriously ... This is way beyond my expectations !!!
Can't live without it !!!

I already owned the legacy version,and believe me, even I can hear the diffrence between both.
I thought they should be the same, NO lets get professional...
Now I Get It
I had the first UAD Pultec, and, meh. A little sweeter than my DAW's parametric, but generally not worth bogging down the UAD card (I need the power for the many Studer and ATR-102 instances). Got the new version, and now I understand why folks pay so much for hardware Pultecs. It's not the most pinpoint-accurate of EQs, but sweet, sweet, sweet.
It's worth it to use it in conjunction with a parametric if you need a little more precision in an area. Audibly livens the track just putting it in the chain, just like the real thing. Really helps glue my mixes together. Love it!
Silky smooth vocals
The Pultec Passive EQ is fantastic on vocals or just run your mix through with no EQ´ing
Picked this up on sale, big tonal improvement over the original, highly recommend.
Worth the improvements
I like the larger GUI on the Pultec collection and the ability to use the three components separately or together depending on the task. Example; the HLF-3C on it's own can be used to easily dial in a filtered effect that sounds great. It doesn't just "do the job", but somehow adds some magic. I had previously bought the Legacy Pro version and was a little dubious about buying the plug again, but I am not sorry. Technology sprints onwards and UAD's improvements capitalise on the emerging possibilities. I look forward to any session using the Apollo software. Addictive!
UAD nail it
congratulations UA for listening to your customers and updating the Pultec with your latest algorithms and programming, something we have been calling for on forums and in surveys. And for giving current owners of the original UAD Pultec a break on the price. That is truely looking after your customers and keeping them happy! i cannot recommend the new Pultec plugin enough. There are plenty of lookalike emulators but only one original and that is the UAD version!
Sonic Deliciousness !
This is my favorite EQ by far! It's a brilliant tone shaping device.
better than legacy
i loved the legacy series EQ had to try the new version was not disappointed this thing sounds great.I use it on drum buss gives the kick a little more balls, Bass guitar same ,this is the ticket for a great sounding EQ.can't beat the December price
Excellent and easy to use !!!
Yet another UAD plugin that brings the sound
Out of the speakers. Easy to use hard to go
Wrong with rhe Pultec "bundle".
It is effective to tight
Those before compared to, it depends on the band which we would like to apply securely.Great EQ!!
I always loved the legacy pultecs, they added a nice vibe to the tracks!!!....but now this guy is a beast!....it feels 3D...awesome for a plugin!
