API® Complete UAD Bundle
API Complete UAD Plug‑In Bundle
simply to use
simply to use, sounds good
One of the better channel strips
If the source is a tad harsh, the API is perfect, if it needs a little drive, SSL. If I could only have two channel strips, this is one of them.
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.
API At Its Finest
These are top-of-the-food-chain emulations. For a real treat, try the 560 on guitars. The EQ is perfect for both electric and acoustic.
its great !!!
the sound is very good ..... I love the compressor .... end the super fast gate !!! the eq have smooth sound wel done...UA
After using real API’s in many of the studios I work in. I had to pull the trigger on getting one myself. I was considering the 500 series version and then I tried the demo of the API Vision Channel strip. Wow! It sounded amazing! It honestly made my guitars come alive! And the best thing was I could save my settings and also us other engineers presets! UA you have knocked it out of the park again!
I put this plug on (560) on nearly everything to sound like all my tracks are going through an API board!
Stupendo, nessun altro aggettivo possibile.
I love that punch, each time i use this on my kick and i feel so so good every single time :-p
If you send the right signal level to it then those presets amazingly could work.
i would like to say it "i love that punch and color <3"
I own 3 Rack API 3124 and using this plugin really shocked me! I find it a great alternative to the SSL Channel Strip, this adds even more punch and "sound in the face" of SSL! Really special on Drums !!!
I love having different channel strips to choose from. So this is a welcome addition to my plug in arsenal.
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!
Don’t have the hardware, so I can’t compare, but I do like this strip a lot
The preamp in unison mode adds tons of API character to the tracks.
I love it even if i never use the eq and dynamics!
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.
Didn't know I needed this, until i tried it.
Having already had the SSL strip and Neve Strip, I felt satisfied in my options. Until I demo'd it knowing it was coming as a freebie with my octo purchase. WOW. game changer on drums for me (as a mainly pop / hip hop mixer and producer). The EQ is stellar, the compressor and side chain capabilities just make everything feel fatter and better. Instant juice :) Sometimes I feel like the step input options are too much or too little with no in between but I compensate with plugins before or after when needed. love it!
Wicked Punch warm harmonics
Punchy and warm is what I would use to describe this channel strip. Solid on drum busses and even killer on overall mix busses. I love it. The EQ does a fantastic job of cutting crazy unwanted frequencies. Rich sounding UAD plugin to my ears.
It is a very silky sound, I feel the real machine of the API. This might be a problem only for me, but there was a slight sense of incongruity in the degree of the compressor's application. It is a point that the degree of caught of the threshold is sometimes not smooth with the sound of the Pad system. It may be due to my poor operation, so I will try to master it a bit more.
Been using the hardware earlier - Now I have it in the box and love it
560 for the BASS.
I love to use 560 on my synthbass, I can do magic with this.
