Pulsar MASSIVE 149

Pulsar Massive is an emulation of a legendary analog EQ that is trusted by the best mixing and mastering engineers in the world. This Pultec-style passive EQ embeds a parallel topology with no cumulative tonal correction, resulting in a more intuitive and fluid way of shaping the frequency spectrum. When you want to add a bit more snap, color, and excitement, Pulsar Massive delivers every time thanks to its tube-powered passive circuit and two transformer models with adjustable drive.

Pulsar MU 149

With Pulsar Mu, you get the most faithful emulation on the market, of a mythical all-tube compressor that remains THE reference in a vast majority of mastering studios around the world. You can use it to manage transients in a soft and musical way, even with extreme settings, and get full control of your dynamic range with the plugin’s Sidechain and look-ahead/look-behind option, M/S mode, and modern graphics.

Vintage vibes, modern workflow

Take advantage of the analog character of the hardware in an easy-to-use and intuitive interface designed for both “retro” enthusiasts and modern features hunters. You can add multiple instances on your tracks thanks to the CPU optimization, resize the plugin as you like, up to x8 oversampling, and more. The most common use for this bundle is to live on your master bus, but Pulsar Massive & Mu finds their way on nearly every kind of source.

“Pulsar Massive is the most unique recreation of this legendary eq. The extra warmth and the almost surgical precision of the MS mode of the plugin are the real deal. Incredibly helpful when trying to wide stuff out and supercharged with a range of improved aspects that make this plugin my go to eq for all sort of things!

“What Pulsar Massive does above all others is it finds a very pretty way of reproducing the subtleness and creaminess of the top band. This is becoming a favorite for strings by far of all my other eqs. The mid range gives just enough zing in there too!”

“I use Pulsar Mu plugin on every mix. It gives me true tube smoothness which rounds off any harshness. Aside from the dynamics control that you get with a compressor /limiter, I find that Pulsar Audio plugins give me the truly wonderful analog character and focus that I require.”
