OverToneDSP releases PTC-2A Pultec style EQ for Mac OSX

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 19, 2012 - comment 1 comment

OverToneDSP has announced the release of the PTC-2A equalizer effect plugin for Mac.

Modelled on the classic Pultec EQP-1A, the PTC-2A features separate LF Boost and Attenuate controls, a transformer-coupled valve amplifier emulation and the control interaction responsible for all the signature Pultec sounds, including the famous ‘low-end trick’ in which LF Boost and Attenuate controls are used simultaneously to provide tight bass boost without losing detail.

The PTC-2A is modelled using measured data and schematics from the real hardware.

PTC-2A features

  • Separate LF Boost and Attenuate Controls — Simultaneous low frequency boost and cut, emulating the classic Pultec ‘Low-end trick’.
  • Physical Control Weighting — Replicates the ‘feel’ as well as the look of high quality rotary controls.
  • Passive Filters — 6dB / Octave passive filter emulation maintains the smooth frequency response and desirable control interaction of the original vintage designs.
  • Transformer-coupled gain stage — Similar to the original Pultec EQs, the passive filters are followed by a transformer-coupled tube amplifier stage which further enhances the vintage qualities.
  • De-cramped Mid-Range Filter — Innovative DSP technology models the behaviour of an analogue peak filter more closely than conventional digital algorithms, even at low sample rates.

The plugin is available to purchase for £40 GPB.

TC Electronic announces crossgrade option to Universal Audio UAD-2 Powered Plug-Ins platform, development of PowerCore range ceases

TC Electronic and Universal Audio have announced a collaboration to offer a high value crossgrade option to UAD-2 for registered PowerCore users worldwide, as further development for the PowerCore range comes to a halt.

UAD 2 Quad

As part of a larger strategic review, TC Electronic has decided to cease further development of the PowerCore product range. With the most recent release of software version 4.0, PowerCore is fully compatible with current operating systems and DAWs – 32 bit as well as 64 bit. TC Electronic will continue to sell all of the existing PowerCore plug-ins and hardware variants and will keep offering user support for the platform. Also, TC Electronic will continue its general computer recording activities, including audio interfaces and plug-ins.

In addition, TC Electronic announces a collaboration with Universal Audio in order to offer a crossgrade program, allowing registered PowerCore users to receive a value pack of up to $1,300 worth of UAD Powered Plug-Ins free of charge when registering their newly purchased UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Package.

TC Electronic Product Manager Thomas Valter says: “We are proud to work with one of the industry leaders in external DSP power solutions to offer our users a top-notch addition to their existing PowerCore setup.”

The crossgrade offer is valid from February 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011. In order to qualify for the crossgrade offer, PowerCore users must register a new UAD-2 package, including the recently announced UAD-2 Satellite Firewire DSP Accelerator, within this period. Further, the offer is only valid to new users, i.e. users that are new to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform.

PowerCore users, who qualify and want to make use of this offer, simply have to register their newly purchased UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Package via Universal Audio’s website. During the registration process, they just enter the serial number of their PowerCore unit which will trigger the release of the corresponding UAD Powered Plug-Ins.

A-Designs announces EM-EQ2, two-channel rack-mounted equalizer

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jan 18, 2011 - comment 0 comments

A-Designs has announced the EM-EQ2, a new dual-mono equalizer.

A-Designs Audio EM-EQ2

Well-suited for tracking, mixing and even mastering applications, the EM-EQ2 is a dual-mono equalizer housed in a rugged, all-metal 2U chassis. Sonically nodding to the classic Pultec EQP-1A sound, the EM-EQ2 utilizes the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs’ popular solid-state EM-PEQ and Pacifica mic pres, putting a slightly unique twist on the classic filter design of yesteryear. That aside, the EM-EQ2 faithfully preserves the EQ section design, control layout and wonderfully smooth musicality of the original Pultec unit.

Additional features include a nickel core output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima caps, and a true hard bypass. Instead of using common off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a custom-wound tapped inductor wound to the same values as the 500 Series EM-PEQ. Fully balanced, noise-free performance with modern impedance specs make for intuitive operation and quick studio integration.

“The original EQP-1A has long been revered by both recording and mastering engineers for its ability to improve the sound of literally anything running through it,” says A-Designs Audio’s Peter Montessi. “The much more affordable EM-EQ2 is our take on that classic design with all of the same freq settings and inductors that made the Pultec a must-have for capturing the bottom end. This product is perfect for those engineers who are looking to add some vibe to their ITB tracks or two-buss but prefer to use standard rack-mount gear instead of 500 Series modules.”

“I should also point out that the EM-EQ2 pairs up exceptionally with our HM2EQ HAMMER for those engineers looking to add some analog texture that the digital world still lacks,” Montessi adds.

The EM-EQ2 is expected to be available in February, for a retail price of $2,695 USD.
