"Another favorite is the the Pultec Passive EQ Collection. I like to use it without any boost — just insert it and it gives you a wonderful tool for blending live elements with synths — just by going through the virtual circuitry." - [Armin Van Buuren](http://www.uaudio.com/blog/armin-van-buuren).more
When asked if he has uses many of the same "go-to" plug-ins, Diplo responded, "Yes. For vocalists, I nearly always use the Pultec EQP 1-A and the 1176 Compressor. The Pultec, especially, has a great ability to boost up the shine or fresh quality of a vocal, and the 1176 keeps it in place."more
