Universal Audio has announced the addition of the Pultec Passive EQ Collection to its UAD Spark plugin subscription service. With this update, UAD Spark is now also compatible with native Apple M1 Silicon based Macs.

Available natively for the first time ever (no UA hardware required), the UAD Pultec Passive EQ Collection gives music creators the most authentic plugin emulations of the greatest tube equalizers ever made for sculpting vocals, guitars, bass, drums, and more.

Originally developed as a UAD Powered Plug-In for the award-winning line of Apollo audio interfaces – and one of UA’s best-selling plug-ins of all time – the Pultec Passive EQ Collection for UAD Spark leverages extensive end to end analog circuit modeling to capture the full essence of the highly coveted vintage hardware.

“It’s fitting that the Pultec EQ Collection is now available in UAD Spark, alongside plug ins from so many other iconic audio brands,” says Bill Putnam Jr., CEO of Universal Audio. “We created UAD Spark to bring the sound of the best studio hardware ever made to all music creators, and these classic equalizers certainly belong in that category.”

Pultec Passive EQ Collection features

  • EQ collection includes plug-in emulations of EQP-1A, MEQ-5, and HLF-3C units.
