Pulsar Massive at Gear Expo Summer 2022: the most complete passive EQ plugin


GEAR EXPO SUMMER 2022: Pulsar Massive is an emulation of the Manley Massive Passive EQ that is present in almost every mastering studio in the world. This unit is considered one of the most versatile and colorful passive EQs on the market.

It has a rich and dynamic sound due to the accurate inductors modeling, it is never muddy at the bottom, never aggressive at the top. With its smooth and musical EQ curves due to its parallel topology, Pulsar Massive offers a more intuitive and fluid way to shape the frequency spectrum.

Pulsar Massive meticulously reproduces all the important aspects of the original hardware, but adds all the key features you would expect from a modern, versatile EQ plug-in. The beautiful graphical editor will allow you, for the first time, to visualize the peculiar EQ curves of the original unit.
