PURETEQ BUNDLE is a collection of three sought-after vacuum-tube based processors that have literally written the history of professional music recording.

PURETEQ BUNDLE includes 3 different plug-ins:

– PURETEQ-Q, modeled on a universally acclaimed program equalizer;
– PURETEQ-M, its mid-range specialized companion;
– PURETEQ-F, a 18dB/octave High- and Low-Pass passive filter bank.

In typical MetaWare fashion, the original functionality of each processor has been enhanced in ways that would be highly impractical, if not altogether impossible, in the analogue domain. A transformer-coupled, vacuum-tube pre-amp stage is included in each plug-in.

PURETEQ-FREE by SoundDrops is a complimentary plug-in available in Aquarius. It is offered as a free appetizer expressly designed to give you a little taste of the magic that its three bigger brothers in PURETEQ BUNDLE are able to work on your music.

PURETEQ-FREE includes two filtering cells directly taken from the commercial bundle.
The Low Frequency cell offers two separate controls for boosting and cutting the same frequency range; similarly to its analogue counterpart, when used simultaneously these controls create interesting and unique curves characterized by a typical dip in the low frequency response (often colloquially dubbed ‘bump’) that is extremely effective in keeping track of that low-mid ‘mud’ which often tarnishes music programs.
The High Frequency Boost cell, originally a bell-shaped curve with adjustable bandwidth, here is enhanced with the option to gradually morph into a classic High Shelf response, for maximum adaptability to any mixing situation.

Every single band in PURETEQ-FREE has been sampled in a separate session; as a result, there’s no unwanted additional tone coloration, whatever the number of enabled bands: the final resulting frequency and phase response always represents exactly the sum of what each cell produces by itself, and nothing else. And all of this while retaining the all the great sonic traits of real world analogue hardware, down to the tiniest detail.
