Pulsar Audio Pulsar 8200 v1.0.6-R2R screenshotTeam R2R | 2023.05.02 | 55.2 MB
The paragon of EQs, reinvented. The best companion for your passive EQ.

Pulsar 8200 is a faithful emulation of the legendary GML 8200 designed by George Massenburg*, the inventor of the parametric EQ. Full EQ control is a formality today, but it was a dazzling novelty back in the days.

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”.

Main Features

Visual curve editing
Manipulate a peculiarly shaped analog EQ curve in an intuitive way. The curve editor is extremely easy to use, with a clear and concise overall frequency response display. You can edit all properties of any filter – including its assigned name – without touching the lower panel.

An embedded simple-but-efficient de-esser gives you full control over the aggressive or harsh transients of the spectrum, to get a more polished and professional result. In the central panel, choose the frequency, the amount, and the filter type (bell or shelf).

Mid-Side processing
Make EQ changes to a signal’s centre or stereo information by operating in mid/side mode. The Listen buttons help audition each signal in isolation, and the screen displays only the channel you’re working on, so you always know what you’re doing.

This control compensates for volume changes introduced by equalization, keeping output level consistent with input. It uses a C-Weighting-based algorithm to introduce a level compensation based on EQ curve analysis. Since this compensation only depends on your EQ settings, it won’t change during playback.

Tilt filter
Some things can’t be done with just bells and shelves. We’ve added a complex 6-pole tilt filter to adjust the tonal balance of your whole mix in a natural and analog-style way with a single knob.

Sub & Air band
The Air & Sub bands, inspired by the philosophy of parallel passive equalizers, allow you to fine-tune the extreme high-end and low-end of the spectrum without adding any mud or harshness.

Metering & Spectrum analyser
The on-screen analyzer displays the audio spectrum in real-time (fast and slow window settings) or over the long-term with the Infinite Spectrum setting. In addition, peak metering provides insight into overall dynamics, and RMS meters let you monitor loudness and level matching. An overall gain meter is also available.

Gain scale
For wholesale reduction or increases in gain, the Gain Scale control lets you accentuate or reduce an entire EQ curve, acting like a multiplier for all bands’ gain settings.

A bit weird that it's already on v1.0.6! Shouldn't v1.0.0 be the first official release version, while anything lower than 1.0.0 is beta?
  Member 3.11.2022 45 164
The website.... free Trial... v1.0.6
  Resident 29.11.2020 29 2638
It's kinda trendy now that developers send v1.0.0 to paid "reviewer" ie. the youtube guy to test it first before making any review, then if the reviewer found anything they don't like or problematic the dev will fix it before the official release. So the promotional video will be pretty and the plugin too, which is kinda win win.

I think the problem was with the De-Esser's aliasing so they half fix it and the rest can be solved with oversampling.
It makes no sense to say you’re not good at it. It’s like saying, “I’m not good at being a monk.” You are either living as a monk or you’re not.

Anyone tested on Windows 7?
  Member 6.06.2020 13
Yep - working fine here on Win 7 (via FL Studio/vst3.)

OMG !!

Its the first Pulsar Audio release that work here.

All other release never worked and now this one is working without a single hiccup.

I don't know what R2R changed but I finally have a Pulsar Audio plugin that is able to be installed here.

Thank you so much Witch of the wild !!

For all the Plugins in the last year, check out VC runtime 2022 X64 last versión, and direct x 9 y 11, last versión x64 to. All pulsar R2R relases last weak are working, same for previous relases.
Win 10 pro x64 22h2, Cubase 12.0.60, same nuendo, Fl 20.9.2, ableton 11.2.x

There might have been a language translation issue there.

I was not saying it was not working for you, I said it never worked for me and that one is the first one working.
  Member 3.11.2022 45 164
Yeah, i noted that, for that reason i said that check out You vc, because i don't see it other users claiming that the other releases not working for them. I apology for my bad english, i try to write whit out use a traslator.
  Resident 20.09.2012 4 383
No worries. You might want to check out some of the previous releases on this site where multiple users (including me) said they couldn't install any Pulsar plugins.

For your convenience and read, here's one of many :

The recent interface

Ok, I could bore you with various technical stuff and measurements (phase, freqs, gain, Q, harmonics, ...) but I decided to refrain to two things:
1. running on WiN7 here (PD and Reaper)
2. (and most important) level matched, in a double blind test I found Kirchhoff in 9/10 more open and punchy sounding!
  Resident 11.08.2012 17 225
did you check that the curves were the same?
Come back, on the fonky track
  Member 12.01.2021 600
Damn, I knew I forgot something.

Ok, seriously. Not in my case but in principle a valid question (ok, that wasn't that serious either ).

For the comparison to Kirchhoff I matched them in Bertom's EQ Curve Analyzer. Thanks to Stevie Dude's comment at AS, I meanwhile matched it to EQuilibrium's 8k2 preset in PD with the same result. EQuilibrium sounded more open and punchy.

Just another EQ indeed, though this one has a lot more knobs to play with.
  Member 1.03.2014 467
Weird this the first Pulsar plugin not showing up in Cubase, win7. Scanned everything 2x, tried both versions.
