Producer, Mixing Engineer

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.

Dimitier Ganchev

Producer, Mixing-Mastering Engineer

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...

I’m very pleased

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
I’m very pleased with the Heritage Pro. It delivers instant beef to your source if you want, but also subtle warmth if desired. I ran a few pulltec emulations through plugindoctor and the EQ curves from the Heritage pro seem to be more accurate than from other plugins. Recommended, certainly at this price!
- Ruud K.

A MUST HAVE

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
First of all: I really don´t like trying out software, that stops working every 30 seconds. Just imagine you add five or six plugins to a demo project, all of them muting the sound again & again. What a torture! After a while you´re going nuts…What about a time limited but fully working demo version? But let´s get to the point. – Question number one: So, why did I give “Rule Tec Heritage Pro” a try under “going nuts” conditions? The answer is simple. A few days ago I bought their Stereo Finalizer, which really knocked me off my studio chair. I wanted to listen to more NoiseAsh stuff… – Question number two: Do I really need another Pultec emulation? o.k. – Like most of us, I never had the chance to listen to the origins. I have a few Warm Audio EQPs in my studio rack. Hardware clones – but good sounding anyway. So, what made me buy this software, even if I already have almost all available EQP emulations (UAD etc.)? The answer is quite simple: While (almost going nuts having it in 10 tracks!!) demoing Rule Tec Heritage Pro, I WAS KNOCKED OFF MY STUDIO CHAIR AGAIN. Mid & high bands covered my music with pure silk, adding a charmingly WARM 3D character which I normally only experience when inserting hardware. Unlike many other engineers, I am not such a big fan of Pultec bass. Doing “The Trick” or not. But this is a matter of taste. The lower range of this emulation sounds more defined than the lows of my hardware. A big advantage in many situations. Kicks will love it. Rule Tec Heritage Pro is a perfectly programmed piece of software, VERY LOW ON CPU (choose your own preference) and VERY HIGH ON SOUND. In my eyes, one of the top EQP emulations on the market. A MUST HAVE anyway.
- Roberto G.

pultec to warm the sound

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Compared against a number of alternatives and this one is more gritty and lively than most. Price is also lower than most. It bundles HPF and LPF, which is a nice addition (HLF-3C is not often modeled). However, this one goes often for the “pultec to warm the sound”, no real filter active as it usually brings something just by being there.
- Enrico F.

Keep up the good work!

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
I just love this eq. Sounds huge and present at the same time, without ever sounding harsh. Keep up the good work!

Love it!! 5 stars all day.

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
I have nine or ten other Pultec emulations. Absolutely love this one. Low end boost is fat and clear.Instant vibe! I have the Softube one which is very clean but the saturation and vibe on this is wicked!! Put it on my mix buss for some 70’s style jazz funk and it kick ass!!! Wish it didn’t cost more to have units separately though but that’s no biggie considering the quality of this bad boy. Bought at the sale price it is an absolute no brainer. Love it!! 5 stars all day.
- Frank F.

I was lucky to get this

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Giving shine and bottom for your final master. Now this is the right thing. Sounds very impressing! Noiseash did it again! And I was lucky to get this.

MAGNIFICENT EQs.

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Top end, bottom end, and a nice, warm mid. My mixes have never sounded so good. I hadn't even planned on buying the Puigtecs right now, but when I saw them listed in my daily deals, I couldn't pass it up. They are MAGNIFICENT EQs.
- Jim I.

Required machine

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Very user friendly. Rule Tec Includes all plug-ins required for mixing and mastering. best Pultec emulation ever.
- Sam U.

Great sounding piece of gear!

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Dialing in low end with the Pultec sounds fantastic ... retuning a kick drum, getting rid of mud in a bass guitar. The color of the pultec is nice, but keep in mind by default the signal gets boosted around 1.2 db, you'll have to reduce the output to get a fair comparison.
- Harvey M.

5 stars

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Quite possibly the best Pultec plugin I have ever used, and I have tried most of the big name brand ones we all know about. Having the mid and the filter modules included makes this extra useful as a go-to EQ for almost any source. Also listened to a shootout with some hardware and this sounds very similar to me to some of the really expensive stuff, where a lot of the other Pultec plugins and cheaper hardware really don’t. Quite a bargain when its on sale as well. 5 stars.
- Daniel W.

By far the greatest plugin

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
This is by far the greatest plugin and I've added to my toolbox. Demo it and see for yourself and if it doesn't fit you're toolbag don't get it.
- IVAN I.

Must have

Rule Tec Heritage Pro
★★★★★
Wow! This is a really great emulation and a great sounding eq, especially for the mix bus. I compared it with 5 other emulations of the same eq model and none of them could top the beautiful high end and analog bump of the NoiseAsh Rule Tec. Going to be using this a lot. Must have been modelled from an extremely great sounding unit.
- Jesse B.

★★★★★
I’m too inexperienced as yet to compare this with it’s many alternatives in a comprehensive manner but from the first try of this I knew it was immediately special and compares very favourably to any other equaliser I’ve used so much so that it’s my first choice now. Hey but try it and you’ll more than likely but it.
