P42 Climax Line Amp
Pulsar Modular P42 Climax is an innovative multifaceted powerstrip for tone shaping/coloration, saturation and conjures more of the idea of working with hardware. P42 Climax begins with the heartbeat of a hardware line amp, and ends on every single track because it has the cpu coverage to do so (more than 300 instances in a single session). Sculpt your perfect sound whether processing a single instrument, grouped tracks, the 2-bus or even when mastering. The sound is simply… unbelievable!
Don’t underestimate the few parameters in P42 Climax. It is chameleon like, able to assimilate many different coloring hardware devices, but never intended to copy any single one! P42 Climax works magic on drum bus, snare, and of course the bass guitar. Inserting P42 on the 2-bus track, immediately opens up your mix and exposes hidden gems in your mix. With its Mid/Side processing and detailed metering (peak, RMS and LUFS) and Auto. Gain Compensation workflow, P42 fits nicely into your mastering signal chain.
Don’t get scared by the price tag- a comparable hardware unit for a single channel costs around $1,700. Check the Audio examples below as we compare P42 Climax plugin tone shaping against the Neve 1080, Studer A812 Tape recorder, WolfBox DI and other hardware devices.

How do you get the Motown sound? You will need the Wolfbox DI made in the late 60s and used by the recording studios at that time for the signature bass guitar sound and the soft electric guitar sound. The Wolfbox was driven by a Triad A-11J or A-12J, which are not produced any longer. This is what drove the legendary Motown sound. It’s the sound of James Jamerson, Dennis Coffey, Robert White, Joe Messina, and the Funk Brothers- Motown’s legendary in-house rhythm section.
P42 Climax extended functionality is able to nail the sound of a Neve 1080. The 1084 is one of the most revered hardware units ever designed. It sounds like a 1073, and it gives you that beautiful Neve sound thats so sought after.
