API® 2500 Bus Compressor
API 2500 Bus Compressor
I worked in a studio for a few years that had an API Legacy Plus and two API 2500. This is one of my favorite compressors out there. UAD did a fantastic job with this plugin!
Drums, Drums, Drums
Love it on Drums, it's also nice to have 4/5 of these running across individual drum hits.
UAD do it again
Love in snare, oh, guitars, drum buss, mix buss
UA continues to outdo themselves!
I was waiting for this one on the UAD Platform. It is just greta and I love it :-)
Compressor which is must have
UAD Thanks! Finally you have done this! Now we have this wonderful compressor.
I am impressed. It works great with any material
Better and bigger
I always used the waves one. It's for sale now , enough said :-)
It's THE API plug in I was hoping for!
The API Sound
For those that are familiar with the API console, you will immediately be reminded of the API sound using this Bus Compressor. I have just began to work with the plugin and it is very impressive. UAD has done it again. :-)
My New Favorite Buss Compressor!
API is all about the magic of analog and UAD has delivered a character driven masterpiece.... The API 2500 instantly established itself as my new favorite Buss Compressor!

I have been waiting for UA to release this plugin for a long time and now that I have it I am not disappointed. This is one of the best bus compressors out there. It adds a character to your mix that no other buss compressor can. Having the API-2500, SSL G Channel and the Neve 33609 gives me all the options I need for character and tone.
More useful to me than the 'Real thing'
I have never been a fan of this Piece of gear, this UAD plug in changes that.
I would like UA to retro fit the HR control to all plug ins please, this is singularly the most useful advance since the 'mix/blend' control.
API 2500 Bus Compressor
I've been using the Waves 2500 for years, so I was excited to see a UAD version. My expectations were far exceeded. This is as close to the hardware than anything else I've heard.
What Can I Say!
Simply the best emulation ever! The Waves API 2500 has taken a back seat! This plugin is a must Have!
Just when I thought I had my bus chain figured out, UA had to go flip my world upside down again. My jaw hit the floor when I got this thing dialed in for the first time. If you are used to using the Waves 2500, prepare to have your head spun. I will never not use this compressor on my bus, or... anything I can really! Do yourself a favor and buy it.

Il this is a true winner in your UAD tool box!
The first real API-2500 Plugin
I used other API-2500 Emulation plugins before,but none of them works that extraordinary well as the new UAD API-2500. Congratution UAD! Excellent Sound, nice shaping, character, excellent glue on the mixbus. On of my top favourite Plugins. I am very happy with the plugins in v9 AND that Console 2.0 is there Finally for Apollo Firewire.
API 2500 inside my Mac :)
UA have done it again, and I'm glad to stand by UA as a long time user of UAD plugins. They nailed the API EQ's, and now they've nailed the compressor. Love the familiar grab, punch and VCA / OpAmp tone of the API 2500. Scary close to an actual 2500, and I look forward to using this new beast in my hybrid chain followed by the API 5500 analog EQ. Well done UA!
Awesome sounding compressor.
