TESTIMONIALS

Instant love. Sounds massive and punchy. Adding low frequencies making explosions from kick, yet retaining all the transients. It’s super easy for me to make an event from the bass. Really love the smooth top end on vocals. Now it’s all over my mix. From kick, bass and vocals to guitars, keys and plucks. Classic eq with modern character.

Overall a perfect Pultec Channel-strip that has all you need for equalizing individual instruments as-well as full mixes. You really can't go wrong with the Rule Tec Heritage Pro.

I have the original machine. But this plugin is just like original. Even better than the best known emulation versions. My directly recorded vocal tracks turned into giant, definitive and clear voices. I definately recommend it! I use it on even electronic music...

Finally someone gets it about Pultecs !

Rule Tec EQ1A
★★★★★
I am not a huge Pultec users. In the studio I am used to having "only" 2 Pultecs units. But I tried all Pultec EQ I could find and was never really happy with them. Because of one thing : The way they handles transients and peaks. This Pultec gets it ! Finally a Native Pultec that has that very nice low-end reinforcement and respect to the transients. I def recommend it. It lives 95% of the time on mixbus for my in the box mixes now. Awesome job !!
- Wheeliemix

Well worth
