Pultec MEQM-5 Matched Pair Mastering Equaliser
Use the Pultec MEQM-5 midrange mastering equalizer to fine-tune this crucial frequency range in your mixes, while adding undeniable Pultec vibe too. The MEQM-5 dedicates its existence to everything between 200Hz and 7kHz. That's where your vocal tracks are most vibrant, where your guitars have girth and body, and generally where mixes either shine or fall flat. In classic Pultec fashion, you get two bands of midrange boost and one attenuation band (with 21-position stepped switches for easy setting recall), and that's all you need to add amazing mojo to any track with the Pultec MEQM-5 midrange mastering equalizer.
Magical tools revered for their capability to improve the sound of audio simply by passing signal through them, Pultec equalizers, such as the MEQM-5, are the stuff of legend. You've heard them on countless hits. Rare vintage units cost a pretty penny - if you can find one in good working order. So naturally, there have been many hardware and software "re-creations" over the years. Well, now you can grace your recordings with the sweet sound of the MEQM-5: a genuine made-in-America Pultec EQ.
Long story short, a detailed, vibrant, rich midrange is what separates world-class mixes from the rest. It's where most of the sonic excitement of your mix lives, and the MEQM-5 gives you two bands of boost and one attenuation band to shape it just right. The sound is amazing, and with a little experimentation, you'll be enhancing vocal intelligibility and beefing up guitars with incredibly musical results.
When you're mastering with outboard gear, it's crucial to be able to accurately recall settings. The MEQM-5 mastering equalizer sports 21-position stepped switches for its boost/attenuation controls. The tapers have been engineered to give you a maximum of 10dB of boost/cut, with .5dB step increments. So when you need to recall exact settings, the MEQM-5 makes it easy and precise.
