API® 2500 Bus Compressor
API 2500 Bus Compressor
I have the original API 2500 - The UAD Plug-In does not have to hide!
Great ! Thanks UAD !
Ce compresseur réputé apporte aux mixages stéréo et aux sous-groupes l’énergie, le mouvement et un son comme aucun autre, avec une précision absolue.
Best Api emulation ever
Best stereo bus compressor
Its great,a powerful tool on the master and bus.
Have also parallel compression
Most favorite (next do 33609 as a counterpart)
Still my be loved and first go to Compressor.
So much charakter.
But there are drawbacks too: Copaired to the analog hardware there is quit a huge sound lack and as always on the newer UAD Plugins - limited bandwith (Mastering not suitable?)
Best API 2500
I've been using this compressor from other vendors, but after demo it, I've bought immediately. Best compressor for mix metal music ever!
Buss drum heaven!
I've been using this since the day I bought it a year ago for drum buses and I can see what all the hype is about. It gives weight and presence to my drum buss and is my go to plug in!
This thing is a BEAST!
I ignored the API suite for years, thinking hey it's just for Rock music, but just tested in place of the trusty SSL G Bus Comp MKII and it's a must have. I make mostly Hip Hop and R & B and it sounded so good on the master bus when demoed I had to have it. The shape and tone controls are great and it sounds more open than the SSL to me.
Might be my new fav Bus Comp
Haven’t used yet...but it’s API...duh!
Tested it out in demo. The reviews made me finally pull the trigger.
My favorite compressor
magic when used gently
really shines doing some minor peak softening, very happy with this one on the master buss
A must buy!
Awesome compressor, I'm loving the old style colors nice my techno kicks.
a permanent fixture in my plugin chain
thank you so much for doing such a great job emulating this modern classic. it really does add depth to your mix just like the hardware.
Has not left my mixbus since I got it. There is a punch and glue to this compressor that I can't get from any other compressor I own. It goes on my mixbus and I mix straight through it. Bypass it and my mix loses it depth and punch. It has quickly become one of my desert island plugins!
Powerful, musical and smoothe but needs a careful hand
Not quite found the perfect setting yet but just getting started. I can feel the power in this plug in. No regrets but much tweaking to do.
Been using the hardware earlier - Now I have it in the box and love it
This was the first plugin i used that made me instatly feel using analog gear.
Not always the first choice because of the colouration and special behaviour, but the smack it makes is sweet and predictable. In this case it is of no importance if it emulates the hardware perfectly or not, it simply works well. Perfect for drums.
An excellent compressor, classic API sound...I love it!
It comes as a pair
The API 2500 is perfect after the API Vision Channel Strip, they are a team...
Awesome - Thrust it
Awesome simply awesome. Just try it and you'll buy it - Thrust it ;)
