New API 500 Series Compressor


API has announced the introduction of the 527 compressor, a single channel module based on API's 225L discreet channel compressor.
The 527 features comprehensive controls including variable attack, release, ratio, and output gain controls. The unit also includes API's patented 'Thrust' circuit, first offered on the 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor. A 10 segment LED meter is switchable between gain reduction and output level.
Larry Droppa, President of API, told us, "Anyone who has used the 225L compressor found in API consoles has expressed a longing for the same kind of flexibility and control in the 500 Series for some time. We're delighted to now offer the 527 to complement our vintage 525 compressor, which has been many engineers' favorite compressor over the years."

Introductory price: $995.00. More information:
