API® Complete UAD Bundle
API Complete UAD Plug‑In Bundle
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.
Fantastic channel strip!!
Api vision sounds great, and has so much packed in it, even running synths through it really does add something special to the sound, bigger bottom and a real punch that makes the sound come alive! It’s all great, but I want to specifically mention the hi-pass and Lo-pass filters. They sound so good and are the most musical sounding filters I’ve used, they just really help tame the lows and highs without sounding thin or dark. Love it! 5/5 stars, thanks UAD
My favourite channel strip, because
It has cool functions and great color. I’m using it for live streaming with dynamic mics, recording acoustic guitars and vocals too. I’m very happy with it.
API and drums!
I bought this for tracking guitars. When I tried it on drums is where it shines the most. As always great stuff from UA plugins.
Drum Bus Magic
The best I've found outside the hardware
Amazing Sounding Plugin, would love to use the modules separately
Everything about this plugin sounds great, and offers a lot of functionality with all of the sections of the channel strip! My only wish is to someday UAD will offer a split of the plugin into each of its individual parts. Sometimes I only want to add the 550L EQ instead of the entire strip. Thanks for a great product!
also the sound of Preamp is great.
Un vrai régal sur une snare, incisif sur des chants et un vrai "make up" pour un stéréo, bref un compresseur "solide" !
