API® Complete UAD Bundle
API Complete UAD Plug‑In Bundle
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.
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.
Lots of tools in one
Eq, compressor, gate, preamp all in one plugin!
An excellent compressor, classic API sound...I love it!
Perfect Channel Strip
This channel strip does exactly what UAD says it does. It give you that sweet API vibe. I mostly got it for the purpose of tracking since it's very common for people to track anything from pianos to vocals through some sort of api console or mic pre. I love it!
It comes as a pair
The API 2500 is perfect after the API Vision Channel Strip, they are a team...
A really wonderful channel-strip, classic API sound, with the advantage of weighing much less on the dsp compared to the other UAD-2 channel-strips (like SSL, Neve, UA, Helios,...)
Awesome - Thrust it
Awesome simply awesome. Just try it and you'll buy it - Thrust it ;)
