API® Complete UAD Bundle
API Complete UAD Plug‑In Bundle
I bought this plugin in January. Now I need to buy it again to get the latest version? Bad customer experience

Channel strip to go
This is my bread and butter CS. I use it in almost in every mix. It's now degraded to legacy, but still sounds great. There's not much improvement in the upgrade. Kind of rip off.
Upgrades should be FREE
Way to rip off your customers. $150 just to add API 560? Crazy.
It's really not on to be asking £130 for a trivial update. Hopefully your clients - most of whom, like me, generally love and make heavy use of your products - are voting with their wallets and not touching this. I don't understand why you are not responding to this level of feedback, acknowledging you've made a mistake and rectifying it.
The great product and if a reasonable e price was set that's maybe also tolerable .I'm sorry but making loyal customers pay so much for an upgrade is nothing but a shameful, greedy rip-off,
Best for the best
The best sim so far.....That shimmering oasis in the distance ,that's the rest of the stuff out there..
The ultimate in convenience, speed and most importantly sound. I owned every plugin before purchasing this emulation and I would do it again in a minute.
150$ to upgrade?
Same story. I bought the API plugin and now it has become 'legacy'.
You can see I'm not the only one complaining.
It is also a really cheap marketing strategy to show only few 5 stars reviews in the product page, ignoring the 99% of the complains. I hope you'll do something about this situation, your products are great and you are still in time to fix this.
Treat us better
As a super loyal customer, Swearing to your products and happily spending a lot on them - this is very disappointing.
Won’t buy another product one until you’ve corrected this.
Plugin Alliance, Slate and Acoustica are all fine alternatives.
Treat us better. It’s up to you.
No way in hell
Am I giving more money for UAD plug ins with sketchy moves like this.
Die Plugins klingen super, aber das geht nicht: Geld Geld Geld, schade.
Sound quality is incredible!

UAD API Channel Strip
Amazing sounding channel strip with the addition of the 560 eq and the pre amp. Very soon I'm gonna get the console version for Luna.
Windows, not so much of a deal.
For Windows, a little on the expensive side for a PreAmp upgrade. Then they want you to buy the PreAmp again, as a separate plugin? It does look like a great plugin, if I could only run LUNA!
Seriously, just note moderators to your supervisors, I am done buying UAD after this "update" renamed the vision channel and forced me to update as it broke instances in my session... Thank god for Acustica Audio and Plugin Alliance... (BTW Acustica doesn't make you pay for updates and they sound better)
I owned all the API plugs before this new channel strip update... What a waste of money to "upgrade" to the bundle in order to add the same plugin (560 and pre) in a different location but sonically function the same.
Amazing sounding plugins.
Obviously a lot of current API customers are upset with the upgrade price vs perceived added features and value. With that aside, I can honestly say the API Vision is hands down my fav channel strip plug-in period. And the 2500 emulation is fantastic as well as the individual 550 and 560 offerings. So my rating is based on plug-in quality and not perceived fairness of the upgrade cost to us current customers. If I were a new UAD customer I would buy this bundle first and foremost. Quality wise, this is why I bought into UAD in the first place. If you already own the individual plugins and now-legacy version of the vision, only you can decide if the few features added are worth the cost up upgrading.
The original API strip was a recent purchase, and already I’m being asked for $150 for a minor update to keep it current. This should’ve been a free upgrade for owners of the original. Truly disappointed in UA’s customer service on this one.
I'm done with UAD. Goodbye!!
Since UAD still hasn't restored my license, I've now decided to stop investing in the UAD platform. It is a mystery to me how a company can distribute the trust of the customers like this.
better workflow gets better sound !
I'm very happy with the Api console emulation bundle. Mixing is much more efficient and I get better results in less time. Sounds awesome and much more dsp free for others Effects This put Luna to an other level !
