I don’t disagree with the idea, but the Pultec is a passive EQ where each band can literally change the response of the other band(s). In an active, buffered combination like a multichannel resonator, the results are less unpredictable. However, technical constraints aside, there might be unpredicted creative results attainable with a more flexible design architecture.
