Pultec Eq

After having not used it for a few months, I have come back around to this guy. It does a good job as long as you don't need it to be too surgical. I finally have my head around the technique of boosting and cutting the high end at the same time (which the Pultec was designed to do). The engineers designed it so the boost and cut on the high end work independently of each other, thus you can boost 3 at 10 Khz (or kilocycles) while cutting 4 at 5 K. The bottom end boost and cut are tied together (Special thanks to Steven Drake for the lowdown that FINALLY got through my thick skull). David

I don't know about you, but it took me a while to get the hang of it. The controls work differently than the way I am used to from "normal" parametric EQs... My advice to anyone else that is just starting out with the Pultec is to read the documentation, then just start fiddling with the knobs for a day or two...all of a sudden, the light will come on in your head, and you will have a new favorite plug-in!!! :D
