The Bomb Factory Pultec Bundle is a set of three equalization plug-ins for Pro Tools. These plug-ins pay homage to the classic Pultec outboard equalizers that are generally considered some of the best ever made. In this plug-in bundle is the EQP-1A, which is the most well known Pultec, as well as the EQH-2 and the MEQ-5. I don't own this bundle at home, and I wasn't involved with installing it at the studio where I work. As far as the the learning curve of the plug-ins is concerned, they are really simple plug-ins and just about anyone should be able to figure out how to use them. They all share a similar kind of EQ make up, which is a configuration that has been copied many times over the years since the original Pultecs were made. A manual shouldn't be necessary unless you're having some sort of a technical issue.


The studio that I'm currently working at has the Bomb Factory Pultec Bundle on a few different systems. We have a number of different studios on site, so we have our plug-ins running on a few different Pro Tools systems. All of our rigs are Pro Tools HD based, so running these plug-ins is never an issue. Even if you were running them on an LE system I would think that you'd be okay as they really don't seem to take up too much processing power. It really all depends on your personal system, but as long as you're currently able to run some plug-ins without a problem I would think you'd be okay here.


The Bomb Factory Pultec Bundle is a great little EQ bundle to have around. These certainly don't sound anything like a real Pultec, but just having their make up makes them easy to use. They aren't the most versatile equalizers, but anyone who has used a Pultec or an EQ with a Pultec make up will know that this isn't the strong suit of these EQs. They are great for doing simple jobs and for getting a quick boost or attenuation a certain frequency quickly. These plug-ins are pretty clean sounding but again, definitely don't expect them to be anything like a real Pultec in terms of tone. If you're looking for an inexpensive way to get some easy to use EQs in your Pro Tools DAW, the Bomb Factory Pultec Bundle is definitely worth trying out.
