API® Complete UAD Bundle
API Complete UAD Plug‑In Bundle
Great for vocals
the 560 is amazing and so warm on vocals def recommend this!
Was surprised how the color on the preamp really shined when pushed. Masterstroke by UA.. so what else is new? These guys nailed it
Sounds fantastic, depth and punch .
I am strongly impressed by how close the API vision channel strip is, I have a couple of 512c. Definetly the API sound signature.
API Vision Channel Strip
This one simply get your mix into another dimension !! Love the analog feeling it comes from !!
Perfect for rock music
I find the graphic eq to be my go to when shaping both drums and even vocals. It's a very up front eq. While The 550a is a amazing tone shaping unit for vocals and acoustic guitars
Amazing Drum Compressor!!!!
I don’t usually write reviews but this one just sounds to good on the drums to not share. Most impressive feature: You don’t have to compress much to get a smooth phat drum mix. It’s now in my template for life!
API Vision Channel Strip
Nice flexible CS with the API tonal coloring that bridges the gap between vintage and modern sounds.
Amazing, especially for Mastering. Love it! A huge difference from other manufacturers.
The 2500 from UAD emulates its analog counterpart perfectly. However, what they cease to mention in the ad (only in small letters), that when not using Console, there is latency involved. When compressing the Drum Bus, what the 2500 is mainly used for...any form of latency is highly bothersome. I own the UAD-2 Satellite Thunderbolt 3 hardware that was supposed to take CPU load off, but without console, the greatest feature of the device is unused. SHAME
A must have
I was sceptical at first about getting the UA version of the 2500, quickly after using it on a mix I realize that it does not draw short on what you expect a 2500 to do. Does it sound like the real thing? No but it gives that same sonic reference that you can count on for your records.
Works like a charm
I trialled all the channel strips available. Here and from other brands. This one stood out high above the others for drums and guitars. Stick it on the Unison input when recording guitars and it is ridiculous how much better they sound
Sticks it all together
I love multitracking everything. Guitars, vocals, synths, drums. This goes on all my buses to bring them all together and sound coherent
this one doesnt need my approval
API 2500 Bus Compressor plugin wonderful

The Real Deal
Annoyingly good plugin. Love it for drums especially, punchy, crispy, transparent and highly usable.
Easy to use, very musical.
My Go To
Love this channel strip! I use it for vocals, guitar, and drums. It has everything to craft and polish my sound all in one plug in. I also think the auto make-up gain on the API is a winner!
Great sounding plugin
A very effective plugin, in which you can find the true vibe of the API circuits! Top reference for guitars and drums.
One stop strip
This plugin is pretty much everything you need. I use this on absolutely everything that I track. I’ve always been a bit uneasy about recording through with equalization or dynamics processing, but this changed that. Can be very transparent or slammed/crushed. Try it, get it.
