PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN APOGEE AND PULSE TECHNIQUES
In an obsessive effort to reproduce every nuance of the Pultec program equalizer and mid-range equalizer, Apogee had a worthy partner - Steve Jackson of Pulse Techniques, the current manufacturer of new Pultec hardware. During the 10 years Steve spent building the legendary EQP-1A, he learned the intricate secrets of each component from the only person who knew it - Eugene Shenk, the original Pultec designer.
Legendary sound engineer Bob Clearmountain has been using original Pultec EQs as an integral part of his mixing process since his early days at New York's Power Station studio, so he was thrilled to play Steve's replicas. After careful listening, Bob found that the new units sounded identical to the originals. At Mix This, his studio in Los Angeles, he alternately uses new and original units.
After careful analysis of several old and new Pultec EQP-1A and MEQ-5 units, Apogee decided to model the plugin after Steve's new hardware - it was like taking brand new units out of the box in 1959.
Apogee's Pultecs are the only EQP-1A and MEQ-5 plug-ins recommended and fully licensed by Steve and Pulse Techniques.
