Universal Audio Announces API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In for UAD Powered Plug-Ins Platform

Featuring Five Classic API Modules, the Vision Channel Strip Provides the Classic Punch, Presence, and Color of API’s Flagship High-End Console

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • October 10, 2013 — For over 40 years, API mixing consoles have become synonymous for audio excellence and multi-platinum recordings. From the Foo Fighters to Fleetwood Mac’s classic Rumours, API mixing desks are legendary for their colorful punch and warm analog detail. Now Universal Audio is pleased to release the API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

Featuring five API modules — the 212L Microphone Preamplifier, 215L High/Low Cut Filters, 235L Gate/Expander, 225L Compressor/Limiter, and 550L 4-Band Equalizer — the API Vision Channel Strip plug-in allows owners of Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware to impart their tracks with the same focus, punch, and harmonic detail as its high-end hardware counterpart.

Available for purchase via UA's Online Store for $299, the API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In is part of the new UAD Software v7.3.
