API® Vision Console Emulation Bundle
LUNA API Vision Console Emulation Bundle
For years I was hoping they would make this plugin, detached from the bulky Vision channel strip I do not like or use. And here it is, at last! Spot on modeling, sounds legit, doesn't burn up a ton of dsp. Highly recommended for everything except the mix buss.
Small and easy but powerful
Almost uses no dsp but sounds as good as the API Vision Channel Strip! I love it as much than the Channel Strip because you don’t have to think too much or cut a part of the big version. Sometimes less is better!
Just flat-out crazy good
A plugin like this makes me want to go back and redo a bunch of previous mixes so I can use it more! Gonna resist the impulse (keep eyes to the future!) but still...the API CS just seems to make everything sound better.
New package, same sound
As others have pointed out, it is difficult to recommend this update if you already own API Vision Legacy and the 560 EQ. You get an output clipper and another high-pass filter, while the other updates are mostly cosmetic in nature. It doesn't seem to offer anything new.
Is this for Luna only? API is the BEST!
MAgic MAGIC better than waves
MAgic MAGIC better than waves
Another awesome addition from UA. The system just keeps getting better!
Works fine and sound good
Missing a BIG part of a real console!
What we call "Bus" in digital world also mean "aux send" and "aux return in a channel input" in the analog world. But this emulation dosen't let you add a channel strip on your reverb return strip like you do on an analog console.
Half done work... again.
API Vision Channel Strip Collection
The API Vision channel strip is an awesome collection plugin, the sound quality is incredibly nice, I like you can switch between the two EQ 550 and 560L in the GUI.
มันคัก อิหลีเด้ !
จัดไปกับ ตัวนี้ ไม่ผิดหวัง ...
Big bucks for small changes
I love API Vision, now the legacy version. But this upgrade offers little improvement for $149. Plug-in Alliance has a very good alternative with some features extras. It should be a free or inexpensive update for those who already own the legacy version.
upgrades should be free!
You can't simply continue to turn things into "legacy" products and make your loyal customers pay twice! C´mon make the update free for existing loyal customers!
This is my first ever review...and I must say. What a load of wank!
What the f@ck ?!!
Owner of the original channel strip and the Equipment Collection..
Everything has already been said here.
UA, aren't you embarrassed reading these 1 star reviews??!
...and to the ones who have decided to support this update and added a 5 star review, SHAME ON YOU!
Spent a small fortune for the API Vision CS only to have to buy it again YIKES
I spent quite a bit of money just to buy this plugin recently and now have to pay another $150 more just to it? What other plugins will we have to pay $150 just to update? This is the beginning of the end for the UAD infrastructure.
It’s like having a real console in front of you
UA did it again! I honestly don’t know what to say more than excellent
Literally JUST bought the API Vision a month ago...
..No grace period? I moved away from Waves because of the update plans. I’ve been with UAD for less than a year now because I thought the quality justified the investment price but this is kind of messed up, especially with so many customers upset about the same thing.
Scrolling through the reviews I see five 1-star reviews for every 5 star review, yet it’s showing almost 5 stars from 800 reviews on the plugin page?
I selected the API Channel Strip because i cant afford the API Vision, but it works for me,
Is a great Plugin
New features are so worth it
Unlike the now "legacy" version of the API Vision Channel Strip, this one took the time to model the input transformer of the mic pre to get the most out of your Unison experience. Furthermore, it includes a fader with VCA behavior, and models the 2520 op-amp, features not available at the time the legacy was first introduced, when Unison was just starting. The addition of the 560 is an added bonus. No one likes spending money, but any objective user that owns the "legacy" version will not be disappointed. I don't understand the complaints about the price. The transformer emulation alone is worth the upgrade.
