Throughout the vinyl era, the original Fairchild 670 compressor was ubiquitous: From the recording studio to the record lathe, the Fairchild was renowned for its advanced compression techniques and incomparable sound. We’ve captured every distinctive nuance of Jack Joseph Puig’s Fairchild 670 along with every detail of its rich harmonic complexity.
The Pultec EQP-1A is renowned for its unique ability to boost and cut the same frequencies simultaneously, thereby creating a resonant shelf.

The distinctive tonal characteristics of the MEQ-5 have made the original Pultec hardware a mainstay at high-end studios for decades. The midrange PuigTec MEQ-5 and the broadband PuigTec EQP-1A together comprise a full range vintage EQ chain.
