The Canading plugin company Kiive Audio creates great analog modelled plugins. The Warmy EP1A Tube EQ is a 1 to 1 analog modelled plugin based off of a modern take on the classic pultec EQs. The EP1A offers low boost, low cut, high boost, high cut, and an added tube emulation knob which enable the user to select the exact amount of tube intensity.

Hear it in action here:


  • Low Cut and Boost
  • High Cut and Boost
  • Two High Frequency Selectors
  • Tube Emulation Mix Knob
  • Resizable GUI
  • Oversampling

The Low-Frequency section of the plugin allows you to boost and cut the same frequency from the selected range. Using non-linear modelling to replicate the original unit, you can create an unlimited number of EQ curves using just these three knobs.

The High-Frequency section gives you individual knobs for cutting and boosting the high frequencies, as well as a bandwidth knob for shaping the Q of the high boost.

The Tube Emulation section gives you a one-knob algorithm for adding in tube drive found in the hardware units.
