Pulsar Audio have released the Pulsar 8200, a faithful emulation of the legendary GML 8200 designed by George Massenburg, the inventor of the parametric EQ. Pulsar 8200 is available at the intro price of €89.00, increasing to €149.00 after the promotion. Subscribers to Pulsar Audio’s Newsletter receive a loyalty discount, further reducing the price to €59.00.
Just like the original machine, Pulsar 8200 gives you a tight and solid low end, a crystalline high end, and surgical control over the frequency spectrum. He perfectly replicates the all-discrete, Class-A analog electronics that made the original machine famous in the 80s, and still used today.
Its parallel topology, coupled with unique filtering shapes, allows an intuitive and unique spectrum shaping, resulting in smooth curves, and a more natural result compared to classic digital EQ, maintaining its own “analog personality”.
Pulsar 8200 comes with a complete on-screen curve editor and spectrum analyzer. This best-of-both-worlds approach gives an accurate overview of your EQ changes while highlighting the singular behaviors of the original unit. The easy-to-use graphic interface allows for a much faster workflow in mixing applications.
Get a polished result by removing sibilance and harshness as part of your EQ process thanks to the built-in de-esser. Tame aggressive vocal sibilance or control high-frequency transients in overheads with Frequency, Amount and Band Type controls.
Pulsar 8200 is a component-accurate model of the original unit, perfectly emulating its original unique filters shapes and parallel EQ behavior, producing natural-sounding corrections even for EQ moves that other units would struggle to keep up with.
Go further than the hardware with more Pulsar-added benefits. We’ve added high and low-cut filtering, a Tilt filter to adjust the overall tonal balance of the entire spectrum, and Air and Sub bands to operate at the extreme ends of the audio range.
Pulsar 8200 takes full advantage of modern CPUs to do more with less. Despite the tremendous amount of complexity in its audio algorithms, you’ll be able to use numerous instances. The resizable interface, coupled with the generous offering of modern features, will make Pulsar 8200 your go-to transparent EQ.
