Apogee and Pulse Techniques Partnership

In our obsessive quest to reproduce every nuance of the Pultec Program Equalizer and Mid-range Equalizer, we had a worthy partner –  Steve Jackson of Pulse Techniques, the current manufacturer of new Pultec hardware. During the 10 years Steve spent to recreate the legendary EQP-1A, he learned the intricate secrets of each component from the only person alive who knew them – Eugene Shenk, the original Pultec designer.

Legendary recording engineer Bob Clearmountain has used original Pultec EQs as an integral part of his mixing process since early days at New York’s Power Station studio, so he was thrilled to audition Steve’s re-creations. After careful listening, Bob determined that the new units were sonically identical to the originals. He uses new and original units interchangeably at Mix This, his Los Angeles-based studio.

After careful analysis of several vintage and new Pultec EQP-1A and MEQ-5 units, Apogee chose to model our plugin after Steve’s new hardware – it was like unboxing brand new units in 1959.

We’re proud that Apogee’s software Pultecs are the only EQP-1A and MEQ-5 type plugins endorsed and fully licensed by Steve and Pulse Techniques.

“We love the FX Rack from Apogee. We have our own setups and templates so that you know you are instantly up and running with the Pultec EQ and it sounds great.”

Grammy Award Winning Producers/Songwriters

Beyonce, Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Pink, Sia, Coldplay

Anthony Saffery

“I’ve tried just about every Pultec plugin there is and am totally amazed with Apogee’s Pultec emulation. Before I touched anything it has the sonic feel of a Pultec, the source sounds better immediately and pushing up some 10k gives you that magical opening you’re looking for. The ‘low end’ trick dials in easily. For something that sounds so good it has little CPU penalty: how did you do it Apogee? Best Pultec emulation yet!”

Producer/Mixer

Madame Gandhi, Portugal the Man, Dirty Vegas

Matt Kiichi Heafy – Trivium

“With the Apogee FX Rack plugins, I’m able to use the exact same rack gear sounds that I’ve used in professional studios with all of the top producers Trivium has worked with. It’s insane that I can have the same tones at my fingertips – this easily – with Apogee.”
