This is the Pultec style equalizer! The PE 1C design marked the birth of Tube-Tech 25 years ago and was created as an exact replica of the original Pultec. Today, the PE 1C is a vintage classic still in production and can be found in professional recording studios all over the world.
The Tube-Tech PE 1C is a passive, tube-based equalizer suitable for many different sources ranging from bass drums and guitars to vocals. The equalizer features a Low Frequency section made up of two low shelf filters which can be combined to attenuate and boost at the same time. These filters are actually bit apart in frequency even if they are controlled by the same frequency selector. The High Frequency section has a peak and shelving filter working in parallel, which provides a smooth top end while not getting too bright.
The ability to combine the different filters and sections is what gives the PE 1C its characteristic sound and is something which plays a crucial part in explaining the classic Pultec sound.
The Tube-Tech PE 1C plug-in by Softube captures every nuance of the hardware version. It has an extremely analog sound that is evident as soon as you start using it. Every aspect of this studio standard, 25 years in the making, is now finally available as a plug-in.
"It´s just like the hardware. Really good."
Rob Chiarelli (Leann Rimes, Aaliyah, Ray Charles, Will Smith, Christina Aguilera, etc.)
"We are excited to experience the PE 1C in the digital domain and impressed once again by the skills of Softube."
John G. Petersen (Designer and founder of Tube-Tech)
