Lindell’s PEX-500 hardware unit is a mono transformer-coupled Passive Pultec style equalizer. Its all-discrete design is based upon Lindell’s hybrid amplifier providing 15dB boost of smooth silky high end and the punchiest low end you’re likely to find.
The Lindell PEX-500 is Tobias Lindell’s take on the classic Pultec Equalizer. Along with unique features closely associated with Pultec EQs, including the ability to simultaneously cut and boost a given frequency, the PEX-500 plugin also includes a few extra tricks not found on the original hardware like additional high frequency selections and a Mid/Side (M/S) matrix.
The PEX-500 plugin is a faithful emulation of this magic hardware unit, capturing that classic Pultec sound while adding features not found in the original Lindell hardware, including stereo operation, a Mid/Side matrix, and additional high frequency selections.
