Lindell PEX-500 $99
Pultec EQP-1A hasn’t just been emulated in software. Lindell’s PEX-500 hardware models the legendary EQ in your rack, and in a meta move, they’ve made a plugin emulation of that!
PEX-500 just offers three low frequencies, staying true to earlier Pultecs, but adding some excellent new features – the Analog switch lets you engage or disengage the tube ‘circuitry’, while the EQ switch helps you isolate just that warming saturation. PEX-500 also scores points for its Mid/Side capability, which lets you commit to separate settings for those two channels. A great update to a classic sound. www.lindellplugins.com VERDICT 9.2
