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.

API

Channel strip by a legend, easy to use and it's great to have it in my arsenal

I was skeptical...

Since the 2500 is such an incedibile tool, I was really skeptical about this emulation so... I asked a friend to bring the hardware in my studio and we did a blind test with different settings. This plug-in is so close I had to buy It immediately. it's great, period.

Powerful, versitile, CLEAN!

API sounds so good done by UAD. I love how clean all the API plugs sound, and how distinct they are from other strips you folks make. I can get nice color, or cleanliness from UAD plugs, and this one is awesomely clean.

One star cause I purchased the Vision right before this Legacy'd me.

Im not sure if this was a put down, but I had just purchased the vision channel strip before this updated version came out, if I had waited a month I could have purchased this and saved some money, now I feel like I'm buying the same exact plugin again, 1 star experience, if purchased within the same year should be grandfathered in to the update like SSL does. (that's why SSL is the best)
2nd star cause at-least I get a pretty fader and a graphic eq. sounds the same as the legacy to me minus the graphic eq. Win for UAD.

Pure API sound without any fuss

Pure API sound straight to your Apollo

Same clean signature API sound as it's big brother but less DSP use. I have not regret having both. UAD nailed it on this one!

Real API sound for tracking

No need to describe much, it's one of the best UAD Unison preamp emulations. Channel strip with authentic API sound and grit. All you need for tracking great vocals and instruments. Highly reccomended!

My most used plugin, by far!

This is my go to channel strip. The eq alone is worth it, but the fact that you can drive the preamp in unison mode for color is great, the gate and compressor are essential and extremely useful tools, and the high and low pass filters also make it perfect for almost every source. A must have!

Classic sound

UA have come up with a very convincing-sounding emulation of the API Vision console, capable of imparting a classic sound quality to just about any genre of music. Classic API sound, faithfully modelled. Five modules add up to huge versatility. Filters and separate EQ provide comprehensive tone-shaping.
