IK Multimedia's T-Racks Vintage Equalizer EQP-1A is a plug-in that comes with the T-Racks 3 Deluxe Mastering software. It can also be purchased as an individual plug-in in any relevant format, but it's really worthwhile to buy T-Racks 3 in my opinion. As far as installation go, it depends on if you're installing all of T-Racks 3, or just this individual plug-in. I've only used this within T-Racks 3, but either way it shouldn't be unlike installing any other plug-in or software. In terms of the interface, it's got the exact same make up as the Pultec that this is modeled after. It is a two band equalizer that is very simple to figure out, even if you don't have experience with the Pultec or one of it's many replications.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I'm running the the T-Racks Vintage Equalizer EQP-1A plug-in and the entire T-Racks 3 suite on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I've run it both in Pro Tools LE 8 as an individual plug-in, and in T-Racks 3 stand alone. I haven't had a problem running it in either format, although T-Racks 3 does take up a whole lot of processing power. It also does take up a good amount of space if you use it as an individual plug-in, but not so much in my system that I wasn't able to run it well.

OVERALL OPINION

I love using IK Multimedia's T-Racks Vintage Equalizer EQP-1A both in the T-Racks 3 mastering suite and as a plug-in in Pro Tools. While it certainly doesn't sound like a real Pultec, at least the make up is familiar and it does have an overall great sound quality for a plug-in. I would really encourage those interested in this plug-in to go with the entire T-Racks 3 mastering software instead of buying this an individual plug-in. It's worth the extra money to get all of the software with the full suite of plug-ins without a doubt...
