This plugin is based on a DIY version of one of the best and most musical passive EQ software ever created.
It is extremely accurate and offers sound characteristics indistinguishable from the originals,
thanks to advanced simulation technology based on Impulse Response.

Detailed description and characteristics :
• Introducing “Blues Tech”: an exceptional digital replica of a handcrafted passive EQ, meticulously crafted to achieve unprecedented precision. Thanks to FFT convolution-based emulation, we have achieved an accurate digital fingerprint that perfectly captures the distinctive curves of the original models.

• Audiophile quality, ready for mastering. Blues Tech has that 3D feel. Place it in your master book and get analog depth in your mix!

• Control the amount of “Mojo” using the input gain. The more you load it, the more harmonic distortion you get. Great for adding a live sound to your tracks

• The intricate interactions between filters, known for their fluid and musical curves, have been faithfully recreated, providing an authentic reproduction of the iconic interaction. To improve usability, we’ve developed a new layout that’s easy to understand even for those unfamiliar with the intricacies of Pultec. Each band now has a corresponding gain knob conveniently located underneath it, eliminating the unintuitive layout that characterized the original hardware.

• By introducing a controlled amount of harmonic saturation (THD) into the audio signal, our emulation technique adds richness, depth and character to digital recordings, emulating the unique non-linear characteristics of an analog device.

• Combined with precisely calibrated frequency centers and boost/cut ranges, this plugin is ideal for performing classic EQ techniques, including the revered “Pultec EQ Trick”.

• We’ve expanded the low-frequency range by dividing it into two sections, giving you the ability to cut and boost two different frequencies. This creative freedom, previously unattainable with original hardware, allows for unprecedented audio manipulation, such as cutting 30 Hz while boosting 100 Hz.

• Give vocals, drums, guitars, synths, or even your entire mix the velvety analog warmth of this legendary instrument. Going beyond the capabilities of other Pultec-style EQ plug-ins, “Blues Tech” seamlessly combines the timeless nature of the sound of vintage gear with the cutting-edge advances in analog modeling we have today.
