API Bus Compressor Powered Plug-In

Universal Audio releases the API 2500 Bus Compressor for UAD-2 and Apollo Hardware      04/11/16

Universal Audio has announced the new API 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in. Here's their press release with the full details...

The API 2500 Bus Compressor is a fixture on the stereo bus of many the world's top engineers and producers. Considered the best of the Paul Wolff-era API circuit designs, this iconic hardware is relied upon to deliver energy, movement, and tone to stereo mixes and subgroups.

Available in the UAD Store for $299, the API 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a spot-on emulation of this classic compressor, capturing its all-discrete circuit path with Thrust® circuitry and features a fanatically detailed modeling of API's custom transformers and 2510 and 2520 op amps.

Using "for-your eyes-only" schematics made available to Universal Audio by API, our team of DSP experts analyzed two classic API 2500s -- rackmount and in-console -- ensuring one of UA's tightest behavioral circuit models to date -- and the definitive representation of this iconic compressor.

API 2500 Bus Compressor Plug-In Key Features:

  • Painstakingly modeled by Universal Audio's plug-in design team, licensed and authenticated by Automated Processes, Inc.,
  • Provides the entire circuit path and control set of the API hardware including custom API op amps and transformers
  • Signature API 2500 features include patented Thrust® sidechain filtering, "New" and "Old" Compressor Types, and Variable Sidechain Link
  • Plug-in-only features include Dry/Wet parallel processing and Headroom for user-customizable operating level
  • Artist presets from Jeff Balding (Faith Hill, Trace Adkins), Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White), Ryan Hewitt (The Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and more
