EVERYONE should have at least one Pultec. Unless there are kats out there making modern repros, that will never happen.
Also, comparing the technology of a vintage passive tube eq to any new consumer computer is a ridiculous stretch of a technological metaphor.
Computers are constant and evolving with highly owned technology patents.
Pultecs were and thats it.
As far as the G-SSL and such, anyone who has any respect for Gyraf (of which I have craploads) would read his disclaimer and appreciate not minting a business off of those particular designs.
It happens all the time though anyways, unfortunately.
BUT, if you follow the SSL link and look at the IGS guts, there is really no similarities.
That 'Gloobus' looks cool. I have a project like that on the table now.
