Transform LUNA Recording System into API's flagship analog console.

API analog consoles are at the heart of some of the best‑sounding albums ever recorded. From Fleetwood Mac's Rumours to Radiohead's In Rainbows, API desks add character, color, and punch to everything that passes through them.

The API Vision Console Emulation Bundle turns LUNA into a full API console. Track in real time through API preamp and channel modules, then mix with API's illustrious analog summing and bus compression — seamlessly switching between low-latency tracking using Apollo DSP, and high-powered native mixing within LUNA.

Now You Can:

Transform LUNA into API's flagship Vision Console, using the world's first true end‑to‑end console emulation

Track in real time through complete circuit emulations of API's iconic L-Series Unison-enabled preamp, EQs, compressor, gate, and filters

Shape tracks using API channel strips in LUNA, without managing multiple plug‑in windows

Get "big console" sound with all of the cumulative analog character, rich nonlinearities, and transient clipping

Sum individual channel buses or your entire mix through API's hybrid voltage/current summing circuits

Add glue and tone on buses and the master with the inline API 2500 Bus Compressor

TAKE A LISTEN

A Genuine API Console, Right on your Desktop

A Genuine API Console, Right on your Desktop

Built into the fabric of LUNA's mixer, the API Vision Console Emulation is the first of its kind. A complete, end‑to‑end emulation, these LUNA Extensions let you fill your LUNA sessions with rich API tone — and without floating plug‑in windows. You can quickly "paint" API Vision Console channel strips across your entire mix — and sculpt your sources using API's classic L‑Series channel modules.

Everything you Need to Record & Mix

Everything you Need to Record & Mix

Each channel strip in the API Vision Console Emulation gives you access to six of API's iconic L-Series modules. From the punch and presence of the 212L preamp and colorful 225L compressor and musical 235L gate/expander, to the powerful tone shaping of the 550L/560L EQs and sweepable 215L Hi and Lo pass filters, you can sculpt with bold API tone — in real time.

Add API Analog Summing for Rich Harmonics

Add API Analog Summing for Rich Harmonics

When audio sources flow through an API console — specifically the 2520 op‑amps and custom output transformers — natural analog nonlinearities work together, creating musical harmonics and transient clipping. The API Vision Console Emulation expertly captures all of the Vision Console's hybrid voltage/current summing circuit, giving your summed signals punch, depth, and character for a mid‑forward, lively mix.

Classic In-Line API Console Compression

Classic In-Line API Console Compression

Revered for adding energy and movement, the Vision console’s "in-line" version of the API 2500 Bus Compressor gives your buses and master fader all of the analog glue and mid-forward attitude that put API on the map. Easily apply this fanatically detailed emulation — including its powerful Thrust control — on drum buses, synths and more for authentic, unmistakable API punch.

The First of its Kind

The First of its Kind

From the input stage to bus summing and the master fader, there's never been a digital workflow that so thoroughly emulates the large-format analog console experience like the API Vision Console Emulation. Now you can harness the same inspired workflow used on countless hit records, complete with the cohesion, character, and color of a classic API desk.

Beyond LUNA…

Beyond LUNA…

The API Vision Console Emulation Bundle also includes UAD plug‑in versions of the API Preamp, Vision Channel Strip Collection, and API 2500 Bus Compressor, letting you track and mix in real time with Apollo and your favorite DAW.

feels like a disappointment

Take away an allready bought API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In feels like a disappointment and lowers the trust in the uaudio brand.

I Already Paid for This ...

I already bought this, and I'm being offered ZERO loyalty discount on the update. Why should I have to pay for it a second time just because it's been repackaged? So you added the graphic EQ. So what? That's not nearly enough of an improvement to justify moving my already paid for software to the legacy bin.

After all I wanted it and bought it.

After all, the feeling that the sound comes out one step ahead is good.

Great sound, Annoying fader scale.

The console emulation and summing are very good, but I cant understand the "feature" that changes the fader position and scale when you insert the console or summing emulation, this makes my workflow much worse, nonsense!

please allow the users disable that useless "feature".

API Pre Amping Oper Fredegonde Dortmund Germany

Hey Guys, i am very happy to use my new API Preamp. In this special Case of mixing an live Recording over 100 Microphones. I record with Luna and API Pre Ampings via Madi Interfaces und stacking Apollo 16. My Customers are very happy about the solution. Thanks UAD. Best Regards

Sorry, think about your update policy!!!

As a lot of others here I think there should be a fair way of updating your plugins. Legacy … come on. I dropped Waves a while ago cause I canˋt stand their way of handling and throwing a lot of money in the bin. The internal DAW stuff is getting better and better and at some point it’s not worth spending more money on That…….

Solid utility pre.

Just a dash of API flavor.

very similiar to my API hardware.

very cool plugin! while not 100% as 3D and alive as my API hardware, this is a very versatile and useful plugin with that familiar API flavor.

A Must Have Plugin

This plugin is a must have!

I Thought I Already Owned This Plugin...?

Sure it's an amazing sounding plugin, but why should I have to buy it again? People paying for this plugin twice sets a dangerous precedent as it lets UA know this is acceptable. Am I going to open a mix tomorrow and see all my plugins are now "legacy" requiring a paid upgrade? Shame on UA for stooping to such lowly marketing techniques

Api channel strip

very disappointed with uaudio, bought the api vision channel some time ago. now the whole thing is being transformed into a legacy version and i am supposed to pay a lot of money a second time for a product that has simply been mutated a second time. (full version) ?! sorry, I'm not participating!

Not sure I want this....

Just bought an X4. Now I see that UAD pulls the same stunts that Waves does on their stuff. Big disappointment. I was told earlier that UAD kept customers happy by guaranteeing future upgrades and improvements, the so-called "you buy it for life" model. Sounds like that is not the case.

Man, I am so happy!!!

So, I had Apollo Twin Duo and Satellite Octo and buch of plugins from UAD, Tapes, Analog series mk2 etc. Recently started using Luna as a FUN PT replacement. And with this sale this was no brainer to pick this up and Maaaan! I Love the feel, the workflow, the sound. Bow for real now I have a freaking API console with instant recall, hundreds of channels and all mastering units baked when you want them, instant sound. Now that is a New Year present, thanks UA, you giving us, digital producers reminiscence of that sound and workflow, it is really good for studying how great songs can be made, I am a Student. Thanks friends!

Shame

Заплати дважды за один и тот же плагин. Ребят, это позор! Нельзя так с людьми, которые платят и без того немалые деньги за ваши плагины. А еще отдельно заплати за версию для LUNA... Я разочарован.

* * *

Pay twice for the same plugin. Guys, it's a shame! This is not the case with people who are already paying a lot of money for your plugins. Also pay for the LUNA version separately ... I'm disappointed.

Afordable heaven

I read a lot between the line when I read the review`s from those who ar complaining over the price etc. As a former owner of big format studio consoles I can assure all that this is dead cheap compared to the maintenance cost of a big desk. It is also a big space saver. I have never mixed on API before - but this blew me out of the water. By far the best H.W emulation I have ever heard. If you are a pro user this is a no brainer. If you are a bedroom producer - don't bother... Spend the money on the room. This is a fantastic plug in. By the way-you can try before you buy. I will invest in this as soon as possible. Right now I have been using the 15 day trial of about 4 hours - I am completely sold on this. By the way - I do this of a living.

Paying double for just an "EQ option". BUMMERTOWN.

Very sad that this is just an update to the eq section and now my API channel strip i bought earlier this year is a "legacy version". Shady business forsure.

same plugin as the old one with a few 'updates'

the old buyers of the 'legacy' version will complain & the new buyers will praise their new purchase
