Universal Audio Expands UAD Spark Plug‑In Subscription with Pultec Passive EQ Collection

Now compatible with native Apple M1 Silicon Macs, UAD Spark gives music creators the authentic sound of the greatest tube equalizers ever made, for any audio interface

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • July 12th, 2022 — Universal Audio Inc. (UA), a worldwide leader in audio production tools including Apollo and Volt audio interfaces, UAD plug‑ins, UA mics, and UAFX guitar pedals, is proud to announce the addition of the Pultec Passive EQ Collection to UAD Spark, UA’s plug‑in subscription service.

Available natively for the first time ever (no UA hardware required), the UAD Pultec Passive EQ Collection gives music creators the most authentic plug‑in emulations of the greatest tube equalizers ever made for sculpting vocals, guitars, bass, drums, and more.

Pultec® Passive EQ Collection ‑ $12.99/month*

Now available natively, the Pultec Passive EQ Collection brings one of Universal Audio’s most popular plug‑in titles to UAD Spark.

Originally developed as a UAD Powered Plug-In for the award-winning line of Apollo audio interfaces – and one of UA’s best-selling plug-ins of all time – the Pultec Passive EQ Collection for UAD Spark leverages extensive end‑to‑end analog circuit modeling to capture the full essence of the highly‑coveted vintage hardware.

“It’s fitting that the Pultec EQ Collection is now available in UAD Spark, alongside plug‑ins from so many other iconic audio brands,” says Bill Putnam Jr., CEO of Universal Audio. “We created UAD Spark to bring the sound of the best studio hardware ever made to all music creators, and these classic equalizers certainly belong in that category.”

The Pultec Passive EQ Collection is available to demo free for 14 days in UAD Spark, with an exclusive 30‑day trial for Volt audio interface owners. Featuring over 20 plug‑ins, with titles from Neve,® API,® Moog,® Lexicon® and more, the UAD Spark subscription is available for $12.99/month.*

* Price reflects annual subscription cost. UAD Spark plug‑ins are available for Mac (Windows coming Fall 2022); no UA hardware required.
