"We are excited to experience the PE 1C in the digital domain and impressed again by the skills of Softube."John G. Petersen. Designer and president of Tube-Tech.
"I used to wonder what the whole fuss was with Pultec-style EQs, but after trying out the Tube-Tech PE 1C and ME 1B I really got what it's all about. It just puts things where you want them without complicating things."Tore Stjerna. Watain, Funeral Mist, Ofermod and other black/death metal acts.
"The Tube Tech EQ is my go-to bass eq. Best thing ever on bass. Boost a little 60 and 1.5k and there ya go! Dialed!"John Kerns. FOH Engineer (Sum 41, No Doubt, etc).
Loved and coveted by sound engineers all over the world for its super huge bass and its silky shiny treble, the PE 1C is Tube-Tech's modern day take on the famous Pultec tube-driven passive equalizer. It does things no other equalizer can, and when you start twisting the knobs you will find it's more versatile than it may appear at first.
We think the sound from this equalizer is the reason why some people started spelling "fat" with "ph" when describing a sound. The PE 1C will give you the most thunderous and solid low end on the planet, and in addition to that, a treble that is so silky and sweet you just want to cuddle into it.
The Tube-Tech PE 1C is a passive, tube-based equalizer suitable for many different sources ranging from bass drums and guitars to vocals, and not least for giving full mixes that extra weight and shimmer. The equalizer features a Low Frequency section made up of two low shelf filters which can be combined to attenuate and boost at the same time. These filters are actually bit apart in frequency even if they are controlled by the same frequency selector, and if you find the Boost gives you too tubby a sound, the Attenuate knob will clear that up for you.
The High Frequency section has a peak and shelving filter working in parallel, which provides a smooth and bright top end while never becoming brittle or harsh.
The Tube-Tech PE 1C plug-in by Softube captures every nuance of the hardware version. It has an extremely analog sound which is evident as soon as you start using it. Every aspect of this studio standard, 25 years in the making, is now finally available as a plug-in.
