Waves PuigTec EQP-1A
Plugin utilisé sous Windows 7, disques SSD, 32 Gigas de RAM, Protools 2018.3

Plugin assez facilement installé ( téléchargez la licence et le logiciel, et zou... ).

Payé 29 € en Février 2018 grâce à une belle promo chez Waves : j'avoue ne pas vouloir passer plus dans les plugs, mais à ce prix là.... ben ça dépanne, même si on est encore bien loin du son de l'original...

Possédant seulement de très bons clones ( de chez ProReplicas ), ayant déjà mis les mains sur des originaux et les Tubetech, je n'ai pas eu totalement la même sensation à l'activation du plug de Waves...

Cela me semble plus plat, moins de "jolie distorsion" :)

Bon sinon le plug n'est pas si mauvais hein : on arrive bien à utiliser les courbes "fameuses" du pultec ( plateau dans les graves avec une attenuation en cloche juste avant ), permettant de mettre en évidence une batte de grosse caisse par rapport à la basse -par exemple-

Prenez bien garde à l'utilisation toute particulière de la face avant avec ses trios de potards ( semblable à l'original et toutes les copies du marché ), donc n'ayez pas de scrupules à bouquiner un peu le manuel ou visionner quelques vidéos sur Youtube à ce sujet ;)

Le petit truc sympa c'est le niveau de sortie et le Vu mètre ( qui n'existent pas sur le rack original ;) ), et assez pratiques à l'usage !!

Pour le prix, excellent investissement !! :)

Sa fonction unique d'atténuer et augmenter une même bande de fréquence créé des harmoniques somptueuse dans le bas du spectre, de l'air et de la brillance, sans agressivité, dans le haut du spectre.

Simple et efficace, à recommander !

Waves PuigTec EQP-1A
This Waves plugin is pretty famous as it's modeled after the Pultec EQP-1A. That's been a very famous EQ that was used on records from Black Crowes, Weezer, Panic at the Disco and more. It's unique in that it can boost and cut the same frequency at the same time, so you can get all kinds of cool EQ curves going on. This plugin models that very EQ that was made so famous throughout the years. There are quite a few knobs on this, but they're all fairly straight forward as to what they do. You select a low or high frequency, and then you turn the dials to boost/cut it. There's also a bandwidth knob which adjusts the "Q" control of the EQ curve. This makes it sharper or broader across the EQ spectrum. Finally, there's a gain and attenuation knob you can adjust to fine tune everything.


Waves plugins are some of my favorite out there. First of all, they're cross platform, and as a Mac user, that's a huge plus for me. The plugins are always rock solid, too. They perform amazingly well, take up very little memory and play nicely in Logic. While they're 32 bit, Logic applies a bridge that allows you to use them in 64 bit environments. This way, you get the best of both worlds -- you can use these 32 bit plugins, but you can still access all the precious memory that the 64 bit environment needs. I never read any of the manuals, so I can't comment on that.


This is a pretty unique EQ thanks to it being able to cut and boost the same frequency. You can get all kinds of killer tones out of it because of that. However, it's not that versatile in terms of what you can actually cut or boost. You're limited as to what frequency the program allows, and that can be a bit of a pain. I tend to find myself using Logic's built-in EQ more than anything, to be honest.

Waves PuigTec EQP-1A
The Waves Ltd. PuigTec EQP-1A is an equalizer plug-in that's designed by Jack Joseph Puig and Waves, and of course modeled after the legendary Pultec EQP-1A Program EQ. I don't believe that the plug-in is available outside of buying a full bundle, with the JJP Analog Legends bundle being it's origin. It's also available in a number of other larger bundles from Waves. You'll install it along with whatever bundle you get it in, which shouldn't be a hard process in the least. Using the plug-in should be even simpler, even if you aren't familiar with the Pultec make up. It's about as simple a make up as you'll find in an EQ, and is one that has been copied by countless plug-ins and outboard EQ's. It consists of two bands, each with parameters for boost and attenuation, a well as a certain number of fixed frequencies to choose from on each. It also has a bandwidth parameter for setting how wide or small you want the Q to be, as well as an overall gain parameter which isn't something found on the original Pultec...


Right now I've got the Waves Ltd. PuigTec EQP-1A running on my system at home, although it's not the only place I've used it. My home studio is Pro Tools HD 9, which I run on a Mac Book Pro laptop consisting of a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run Pro Tools with a Digi 002R audio interface and monitor with a set of ADAM A7's. I've also used this plug-in on our systems at the studio where I work, which are all Pro Tools HD based. I can't say that I've ever had a problem running this plug-in on either system, as both have been adequate enough to run it smoothly.


The Waves Ltd. PuigTec EQP-1A is one of my favorite versions of the Pultec EQP-1A Program EQ, as it's quite solid and very useful for inside the box mixing. Using a Pultec in any form is super simple and I feel like this simplicity almost always helps to yield good results as there isn't too much here to get confused with. It's overall sound is pretty impressive for a software EQ as it's got a nice and warm feel. It's more realistic sounding than some of the other ones out there, as I like this one better than both the Bomb Factory and Nomad Factory versions of the EQP-1A. If you like plug-ins that are modeled after real gear, the JJP Analog Legends bundle is an absolute must try as you'll get this stellar EQP-1A in there!
