G-Sonique releases Pultronic EQ-50M plugin

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jul 31, 2014 - comment 0 comments

G-Sonique has announced the release of the Pultronic EQ-50M, a mid-range vacuum tube equalizer plug-in for Windows.

G-Sonique Pultronic EQ-50M

After big success of Pultronic EQ-110P, few years later we noticed there is still something missing. While EQ-110P was perfect for adding deep analog bass and treble color to your mixes, we think you still need tool that can add unique vintage color also to your mid-range.

So we opened our analog laboratory again, and after precious development, new mid-rande Pultronic EQ-50M is here.

If you need to add some more presence/analog color to mid frequencies, or you are thinking your tracks sounds still empty it is right time to choose one of 6 mid range vacuum tubes.

One of know benefit of analog equalizers comparing to sterile digital EQs is that you can make some frequencies more „visible“ in mix just with adding few db of boost, example you can achieve same result (psychoacustical boost) like 2db of digital EQ by boosting only 0.5db with analog EQ, because of more color, saturation and harmonics. This can be perfect feature if your mixes are almost peaking at 0db but still has empty mid sound.

ultronic EQ-50M features

    boost and bandwidth knob.
  • Dip (cut) module with frequency range 300hz – 6kHz, with boost and bandwidth knob.
  • Vacuum tube drive module: with on/off switch and warmth, saturation drive, brilliance knobs for modeling sound of main (output amp) vacuum tube, to add more fatness/warm to overall sound.
  • Input and Output knob volume for more/less analog drive (more input = more saturated sound).

The plug-in is available for Windows (VST) for the introductory price of 12.90 EUR for the first 100 customers (regular 22.90 EUR).

The Harbinger M60 and M120 are full-featured systems including four-channel powered mixers with professional quality loudspeakers for natural sound and full-range musical performance. Both models offer four microphone/instrument inputs with individual volume controls, as well as an Aux input for connecting MP3 players for integrating music or backing tracks.

The MüV M60 PA system features a 60 Watt powered mixer with two 10-inch two-way loudspeaker cabinets. The larger M120 offers 120 Watts of power, with a pair of 12-inch two-way speakers with high frequency compression drivers.
