Fat, tube-driven, passive equalisers can be so much more than functional tools. They impart character and style to any source; drums, synths, vocals, guitars, strings, brass… you name it! As such, they’ve been sought after in top-of-the-line international studios for decades, and their sound enriches the textures of thousands of classic records, in every genre you can imagine.
Now combined into a single plug-in, which not only improves the workflow but allows for a revitalised approach to the sonics using our latest digital signal processing technology, the Softube Tube-Tech Equalisers Mk II are a huge step forward for an already phenomenal pair of processors.
- Improved sound, updated using our latest signal processing technology.
- Spectacular new high-resolution graphics.
- Still the same epic audio processors they always were.
- A ‘Pultec’-style low and high end equalizer.
- Mid-range equaliser with the same passive, tube-driven design.
- Combined into one plug-in for better workflow and sound than ever.
- Legacy plug-ins included.
Loved and coveted by sound engineers all over the world for its super huge bass and its silky shiny treble, the PE 1C is Tube-Tech's modern day take on the famous Pultec tube-driven passive equaliser. It does things no other equaliser can, and when you start twisting the knobs you will find it's more versatile than it may appear at first.
Try, for example, the famous “Pultec” low-end trick: because the filters for the low frequency boost and attenuate functions are slightly offset in frequency (despite being controlled by the same frequency knob) it’s possible to create attractive and well-focused bumps or cuts in the low end by boosting and attenuating simultaneously. Give a kick drum more body, for example, by boosting heavily at 60 CPS and then attenuating to deal with the muddiness. The bump will remain, but you’ll have cleaned up too.
The ME 1B was designed to accompany the PE 1C equaliser, and provide control over the frequencies that the PE 1C cannot adjust. On its own it's a great tool to shape the midrange of any audio material, and together with the PE 1C it becomes a versatile and full featured equaliser.
The user interface of the ME 1B is pretty straightforward. You have three different sections, the Low Frequency Peak, Mid Frequency Dip and the High Frequency Peak. The only confusing thing is that the mid section never boosts, but always attenuates the selected frequency. The other two sections, low and high frequency, always boost the frequencies. But as soon as you start to use the ME 1B in conjunction with the Tube-Tech PE 1C "Pultec" Equaliser you'll find that these equalisers complement each other perfectly.
The Tube-Tech Mk II EQ Collection includes the combined Tube-Tech Mk II equaliser and the original legacy PE 1C and ME 1B equalisers.
