Pultec Passive EQ Collection
Pultec Passive EQ Collection
Night and day from Legacy
The Pultecs were the final piece in upgrading all the Legacy Analog Classics that came bundled with my UAD. I have to say that of all the plugins in the bundle, I think I am most impressed with how much of an improvement they are over the Legacy versions. Which is saying something because of all the Analog Classics, the Pultec was probably what I used the least! Lots of native EQ's to choose from already and I honestly when it comes to EQ I just never wanted to tap into the DSP on my UAD even though these don't use that much. No longer the case now that I've upgraded. Definitely worth it. I was going to let this one pass when the upgrade promo ended but after I demo'ed them it was a no brainer and I couldn't pass them up. So much more nuanced and musical. The Legacy Pultec is good for color, but I often found it to be lacking when the goal was corrective EQ, whether surgical and subtle or wider, more broadband boosts/cuts. Very impressed with these to say the least! Another winner from UA!
Great Sounding EQ, You can hear Improvement over Legacy Pultec
UA takes a great EQ they already had in the Legacy Pultec and improves it. The original UAD Pultec is a staple on my mix buss. The new version is even better! It has a more organic and 3 D like quality to the sound. Just helps make things sound bigger and more immersive. If you like the Legacy Pultec, it's definitely worth the upgrade, you'll hear the difference.
No words needed
It's just sweet. All the processes made by the Pultec Collection are extremely musical by themselves. It's like music itself likes these Eq's.
Pultec EQ - cool analog feel!
Hey, I love that stuff! The Pultec EQs really got that "Mojo"! One little thing: the HLF-3C cutoff filter should definitely have something in between 250 and 500Hz. For my taste I would at least need a 375 position, or better Infinitely variable!
Pultec Legend By UAD
I Owned and Loved the Pultec and then UAD Released The Collection...No Brainer,More Of Variants is too Tempting to Pass Up..More Flexibility to Be More accurate on the Exact tone you are trying to Dial In...Note If UAD picked it up it is a Serious Plug In...
"Pultec EQs feature unusual design elements, making them 'go-to' processors for a range of applications"
Great on kick
I didn't really understand the love for the Pultec until I tried the boost/attenuate trick on a weakish kick. Instant thump.
The high boost works great for synth and keyboard parts you want to cut through. The filters are useful as well (especially automated).
I would definitely recommend.
Great upgrade to legacy plus extras
Like all mkII upgrades the Pulteq EQ collection is a very nice upgrade over the legacy version. A bit more depth and character with the new version, though I still use the legacy on some sources. The filter is the sleeper plugin in this bundle. Don't have another filter that can so dramatically alter the frequency response while retaining and even sweetening the source material.
very useful plug-in.Great sound
Absolutely a MUST HAVE
This EQ collection changes my game something vicious! LOVEEEE it!
Pultec Passive EQ
very useful plug-in . I love it.
It is nice collection,but to be honest with you I use the Pultec pro legacy it is amazing
Pultec upgrade from legacy
Excellent modeling,I compared it to my real pultec that came out of a radio station in New Jersey.I brought 5 colleagues into the studio and did a blind fold test....no one could tell the difference between the hardware or the new plug in....
Excellent job men...as always...Iam saving my penny's for the A.M.S. Know

Pultec Eq Review
Love the sound and colour these eq's provide they really lift unheard harmonics out of a wide array of instruments.
The presets also help you achieve a quick dial up setting that you can tweak for a mix.
Ultimately this is a must have plug in
Soft or edgy
A good mix of different frequencies. Most are very subtle and one of them is very punchy.
Excellent for ambient and acoustic recording
I do mostly live in studio recoding with a lot of ambient sound and bleed. This is the best EQ I have found for usable coloration of off axis response. Of course the direct sound is wonderfully treated by this plug-in as well. I was not sure I was going to do this upgrade as the legacy is very good, but I'm very glad that I did.
A true classic
I loved the Legacy version - and I still use it when I'm mixing and running low on DSP - but the Pultec Passive EQ Collection is on another level. Low end warmth, punchy mids, or shimerring highs; this collection can do it all. Hell, half the time I just put it on my signal chain or my stereo bus and don't touch a single thing! If you run a full mix through this eq (with no adjustments whatsoever), you can still hear the Pultec working its magic. The best, most authentic Pultec emulation, hands down.
I've tried many Pultec emulations and while there are many that work well for me, this is above the rest.
This is a nice and smooth EQ! There is not one thing that would sound bad with it. I use it on drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and everything really!
