API® 2500 Bus Compressor
API 2500 Bus Compressor
Like the hardware
I’m happy to own the HW of this… but the Plug-in is the real deal and so much more handy! Going to sell the HW!
The best for mixbus
Perfect for mixbus and almost every source! The weight and lows it gives to drums are amazing! Combined with distressor is a grate combo!
A new go to on my mixbus! really amazing even if subtle compression is on!
Must have !
I have tons of plugins comp, and some hardware too. This API 2500 is really nice, can be subttle or not, i really like it in loud mode. It s amazing on mixbus.
An inspring compressor for me to compress hard
The compressor of the pros
i love it..!!
Workhorse Im going to use on every track
The enthusiasm lies in its sound and its numerous special functions. After all, only the best should be used for processing sums :-)
A clean useful comp-lim
Not something I would buy as hardware but in plug in style yes. The sound is good on drum tracks. From acoustic to EDM.
I will use this on all my productions
Best compressor for Drums
I have many compressor plugins., But nothing compares to this one if you use it with drums. Really natural and organic...best purchase in some time !!
Infamous bus compressor
Api on the buss
I'm an API guy and I owned an actual one of these. I enjoy that the plug is easier for me use in the box. It's still pretty new so I'm still getting used to it but I sent a couple songs out to a client today and got an email back congratulating me on the quality sound of the tracks. I like that.
Bus Compressor at its best!
Favourite 2500 plugin version
The api 2500 is one of my favourite bus compressors, excellent for shaping, making drums especially punchy and bringing out the room tone in creative ways, I’ve tried a few different plugin versions, waves, sk note (which I love), Softube American class a (which is excellent but limited controls in console 1).
Uad version is my favourite yet, doesn’t quite capture the sense of space for whatever sound you send it like the hardware, but it’s close, also like the tone of the hardware slightly more, but the compressor action is superb. Find the dsp hit to be reasonable, overall happy with my purchase.
Perfect bus compressor
It is a must in every studio!
More versatile than you think.
My favorite thing to use the 2500 on is BGV's. There is just something about it.
API, Great Sound
It works great, on all busses and instruments, that‘s what I missed.
The best compressor for the master bus
Unprecedented sound quality. Flexible compression adjustment and response to each channel separately. Very precise operation of the compressor. Thrust detector above all praise.
Won on the Neve 33609 bus master.
2500 buss compressor
I thought waves had a good one until I got uad. Man there is a big difference in them. Uad has better quality and punch. Keep up the great work. 2022
