Jack Joseph Puig's Classic PulTec EQs!

The Waves PuigTec EQP-1A and MEQ-5 tube-style equalizer plug-ins give you the sound and unique character of Puig's own PulTec hardware, previously available only as part of The Jack Joseph Puig Analogue Legends collection. Like all vintage equipment, these beautifully modeled EQs have a sound unlike any other. They don't even sound like other Pultec EQP-1As or MEQ-5s. The ones in Puig's rig have been on countless hit records by Weezer, U2, the Black Crowes, and many others. Sweetwater was thrilled to learn that you can add that same sonic mojo to your rig with the Waves PuigTec EQP-1A + MEQ-5 native plug-in equalizer bundle.

Classic broadband PulTec design lets you pull off amazing studio stunts

Any way you look at it, the PuigTec EQP-1A is a simply incredible equalizer. One of the things the PuigTec EQP-1A lets you do is to boost and cut the same frequency range simultaneously - just as you could with a hardware PulTec EQP-1A. This produces a resonant shelf, which lets you add presence and extreme clarity to your tracks. It's a great mixing trick that few EQs are capable of, and when you add that to the characteristic sound of Puig's personal hardware, it's easy to hear the kind of difference the Waves PuigTec EQP-1A equalizer plug-in can make in your music.

The vintage sound of PulTec's timeless midrange EQ design

The PuigTec MEQ-5 gives you the distinctive tonal characteristics of the MEQ-5 that have made the original Pultec hardware a mainstay at high-end studios for decades. Its characteristic boost/cut/boost, 3-band design lets you boost and cut across the same frequencies, giving you massive midrange-shaping control. Together the broadband PuigTec EQP-1A and the PuigTec MEQ-5 deliver a full range vintage EQ chain for incredible results.

Waves PuigTec EQP-1A Equalizer Plug-in Processor Features:
  • Inject your DAW with the sound of two amazing vintage equalizers
  • A spot-on model of Jack Joseph Puig's (The Rolling Stones, Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt, John Mayer, etc.) personal, hand-built PulTec EQP-1A and MEQ-5 EQs
  • Comes with tons of great presets crafted by Jack Joseph Puig himself
  • PulTec-style frequency bands let you boost and cut overlapping frequency bands for a unique resonant shelving effect
  • Includes both mono and stereo plug-in components
  • Supports up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution (Mac and PC)
Add Jack Joseph Puig's sought-after EQ sound to your DAW with Waves' PuigTec EQP-1A + MEQ-5 equalizers!

I always wanted the Puigtec eq's I was waiting for it to go on sale. And when it did I grabbed it fast. The 1st thing I did was put it on a kick and snare on a beat i had already made months ago. And WOW it just gives my drum kit that punch I'm looking for. Thanks Sweetwater for your wonderful sales you don't always have to buy the bundle guysss to get a great plug in eq like this. But I guarantee if you purchase the Puigtec you will be using it on a lot of mixes!!!!

Waves PuigTec EQs Plug-in

I'm not an engineer to explain the electronics. However, as a musician, I'm using my ears to explain these plug-ins. These plug-ins are great once you've found your unique sound - such as in guitar. These plug-ins work in two ways. First, they act like a 'booster' to your total sound. They take your unique sound and they make your sound louder, yet still crystal clear. Secondly, they take your unique sound and 'polish' your unique sound with fine tuning controls. And, these plug-ins are very user friendly and intuitive to use. A real must to your unique sound and home studio!

Add mid to your mixes with MEQ-5

When my mix lacks mid I reach for the MEQ-5. If my guitar needs weight or clarity I reach for the EQP-1A. Great plugins!

For the price alone this plugin does what it says on my tracks. Very easy to dial in highs and lows without adding unwanted color. I love this plugin. Pultec!
