rEQP-1A Program Equalizer: https://www.reasonstudios.com/shop/rack ... equalizer/

reMEQ-5 Mid-Range Equalizer: https://www.reasonstudios.com/shop/rack ... equalizer/

I'm thinking of grabbing the rEQP-1A with that intro price, as I don't yet have a Pultec EQ rack extension.
How do you think it compares with other Pultec options in the shop?

Not sure how it compares with the others, but I like this dev and want to support them. I will buy the rEQP-1A when I get paid :D

Since I don't have a pultec style eq yet, and the price is right.

I also have the Kuassa MP5 already, but I may eventually give this a look as well as the one from Blamsoft. It's one of my favorite types of EQs.

There's so many great options over the Softube Tube-Tech. I trust both the Blamsoft and Red Rock options are excellent as well.

I'd love to see Red Rock update their ModularRE with these and a CL 1B compressor.

lol I'm not an eq junky, but I do know of the Pultec and Neve eqs. I had no idea those white Kuassa ones were an emulation of those. Guess I just didn't bother to look into them at all.

After having a play around with the 'mini' Pultec included in IK's MixBox, I'm pretty impressed so I was thinking about getting the stand-alone version. Maybe I should check out the Red Rock one and get something else from the IK deal :thumbs_up:

The Kuassa ones are inspired and not necessary emulations.

I just got he EQP-1A. While it doesn´t reach the softube´s level it´s a pretty good alternative for that price :-)

Well they are still emulations and referred to as such and as reproductions, and when doing an A/B test between the MP5 and the Tube-Tech, users couldn't hear a difference. I think the inspired by portion is in regards to combining the EQs into one device like the MP5 and some extra features like saturation?

Were the users deaf maybe? :D

I made an ABC comparison between the Tube-tech, the MP5 and the RedRock rEQP-1A and there are clearly immense differences between each module.

Did you compare patches of the same settings? Did you bypass the Tube-Tech compressor?

I tested them intensly over a few hours maybe. Not only with the same settings, which sounded different already, but tried to match them soundwise through different settings on each device which just wasn´t possible because in the end they all sound and behave differently. And yes, I soloed each section, so no compression applied.

RRS have some wonderful REs, it's true
I'm sure this one will not disappoint.
I've got a full buttload of REs, may not dive in
