Acustica Audio has released Coffee The PUn, a freeware Pultec-style parametric equalizer plugin for digital audio workstation software on PC and Mac.
Coffee The PUn is a characterful equalizer effect modeled after the classic Pultec EQ design. The software is based on Acustica Audio’s Acqua Engine Core. Coffee The PUn is available in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for compatible host applications on PC and Mac.
The plugin emulates a certain Pultec-style analog equalizer. The information on the product page isn’t very exact, but users who are familiar with boutique studio gear will probably be able to guess what hardware EQ is being modeled here. According to Acustica Audio, their new freeware EQ plugin has an aggressive sound character.
In a world of vintage ‘Purple-style’ units (well, if we just consider the AA world), the time has come to give you a real ‘Punisher’, a vigilante that specializes in characterful clean-ups in the digital domain. Meet Coffee The PUn, a FREE plugin resolver with a big sound and aggressive character, but who can also treat your source with respect, awaking its inner potential.
