We never wanted to play by the rules, so we gave the old Pultec ® some twist. Combining vintage schematics with modern technological know-how, we crafted the perfect Audified 1A Equalizer – where innovation meets tradition.
Keep an eye on the THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) meter, so you will always know how much of that sweet saturation you are getting.
Nail the perfect saturation for your tracks with unrelenting and precise calibration. Saturation is the heart and soul of this plugin, so use it bravely!
This is familiar to everyone. Boosting and Attenuating lows or highs in a signature way is a quintessential part of the original units. We also nailed the classic Boost-and-attenuate trick!
Seize control over your soundstage with the Mid/Side (M/S) processing feature. M/S processing separates your audio into Mid and Side components, giving you the power to sculpt the center of your mix and the edges of the stereo signal separately. Forge your ultimate mix or master, and enhance your overall color with linkable parameters and switchable L/R and M/S modes.
Punchy drums are something everyone strives for. Add a bit of low-end boost to your kick and snare; your drums will sound much tighter and in-your-face.
Make your guitars more defined and cut-through. Add or remove the guitar’s low end as needed, or add a bit of chime and clarity on the top end.
Enhance the bass’ groove by adding punch, weight, and definition. Boosting the lows and cutting the harsh highs will make your bass stand out.
The old boost-and-attenuate trick is the most famous use of the unit. You will achieve perceived loudness and fullness by boosting a frequency and attenuating it slightly less than you boosted it.
When Eugene Richard Shenk created the unit in the 1950s, the original unique design changed the game. The original unit was used on countless hits from the 50s to today and will remain a staple in the music industry. We captured the essence and added our technical expertise and audio engineering experience on top. Our technology and love for tube-based devices come across in our plugins and studio work and keep being an endless inspiration for creating tools for musicians worldwide. So don’t think about 1A EQ as an “exact replica” (as if there is such a thing) – think about it as an homage and evolution.
