Once you go Pultec you can't go back

KitSebastian, 12.01.2018
As soon as I turned on the Warm Audio EQ-P, I wasn?t blown away, rather it felt like this is how my audio should be, it felt like the unaffected audio was like listening to music with earbuds sitting half outside the ear, and then pushing them in fully once I?d turn on the EQ-P. I?ve come to be confused to how I ever lived without this piece of outboard and everything I record is tracked and EQ through it.
The build quality is perfect and sturdy, the knobs, whilst beautiful, feel a little bit cheaper than my other outboard gear, however the case and switches feel great. Aesthetically I also find this piece of gear beautiful.
One thing that isn?t mentioned on any review or advert is that at the back there is a GND knob where you can control the amount of gain going through the tubes, this can be a great creative tool.
I have never used a real Pultec or other hardware Pultec based equalizers, however the plugin version has been a staple in my setup, and I have tried all other companies versions, (before I switched to an analogue setup) so I feel I know the ?intended? effect well. I can say compared the digital versions, there is way more clarity, whilst the software tended to make it unclear and hard to mix. Whilst the software was great in the highs, the lows were very messy. The Warm Audio?s lows are uncomplicated and smooth and won?t clog up your mix.
Whilst this may not sound as good as other hardware Pultecs like Tubetech or the original, it has extra frequency points (200, 400 and 800HZ) which places it in MEQ territory. This is great for mixing.
I used to think of a Pultec as a secret weapon to bring out when things sounded thin, but now I see it as also a surgical tool, and a necessity. I would highly recommend this product.

A great affordable replica of a classic

Th_Sch, 03.08.2017
I've been using the Waves and UAD Pultec EQ emulations for a couple of years now, but it was only a couple of months ago that I decided to make the step and got into the analog world, the EQP-WA being one of the first units I bought. I can tell you that sonically they are far superior to the plugin. I A-B'd the vst's to the hardware unit and the difference is definitely worth your money.

When unboxing you can immediately see and feel that the unit is heavy and sturdy, and breathes quality. The knobs are identical to the real deal and an absolute pleasure to work with.

I use this EQ on pretty much every track that needs some warming up, or a little more sheen in the high end. It's hard to not make this EQ sound good. It will warm up the bass without adding unnessecary boom, it will give your vocal a nice sheen, without making it sound harsh. What I love about this unit too, is that the switch on the low band goes all the way up to 800Hz, instead of 100Hz as is the case on the original Pultecs. This makes the EQP-WA more flexible, making it perfect for giving a snare more fat, for example.

A minor downside is the fact that not all units are gain matched (I believe they're selling gain matched pairs as well, at a higher cost though). I bought two of them, but as the output gain of my units are not identical, I have to manually correct them, which isn't ideal concerning phase.

Overall I highly recommend this unit and am extremely happy with this. The EQP-WA is an excellent replice of an original unit at an affordable price tag. I'm pretty sure Warm Audio is going to sell a ton of these!
