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 teh 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...

Total analog control

★★★★★
This plugin is great, makes magic for all situations. boomy, mid, treble. Total analog control
- Ange Y.

Thanks again NoiseAsh

★★★★★
Firstly, I bought Rule Tec EQ1A, thinking that was all I needed. But I decided to test out the EQ5M anyway – wow! really glad I did. Very quickly I got this too. Why? in short, the sound quality – clear as a bell & very, very sweet. The Pultec ME5 has tended, in general, to garner much less interest than the Pultec EQP1A – the Rule Tec EQ5M changes this for me. I will use it often. Can’t wait to see what Noise Ash decide to do next! They can clearly create high quality – I’d love to see them do a compressor myself, anything really. Thanks again Noise Ash
