Included Plug-Ins

API Vision Channel Strip Collection

API Vision Channel Strip Collection

Giving you all the critical recording and mixing functions in a single plug‑in, the API Vision Channel Strip Collection lets you sculpt your tracks with API's iconic L‑Series modules from its flagship large‑format Vision console. Easily punch up signals through the iconic API 212L preamp, expertly sculpt sources with the new 560L series ten‑band graphic EQ module and modern four-band 550L parametric EQ, tame transients using the 225L compressor, clamp down on noise with the 235L gate/expander, and dial in sources using the fully sweepable 215L's Hi/Lo pass filters.

API 2500 Bus Compressor

API 2500 Bus Compressor

An obsessively accurate emulation of API’s flagship compressor — including detailed modeling of API's custom transformers and 2510 and 2520 op amps — the API 2500 Bus Compressor plug‑in adds energy, movement, and tone to stereo mixes and subgroups just like the hardware. Easily punch up low frequencies using API's patented Thrust® technology, select between "Old” and "New” style compression with feedback or feed‑forward sounds, sharpen your workflow with plug‑in‑only Mix and Headroom controls, and contour your mix's stereo interaction with percent‑based L/R Link controls.

API Preamp

API Preamp

Easily add the same character and tone of API's hit-making 212L mic preamp with a simple two-knob plug‑in, perfect for Apollo owners. Offering the same features found in API's flagship Vision Console, including a Mic/Line switch, dedicated cut filter, and ‑6 dB Line pad, the API Preamp plug‑in lets you record "through" the iconic preamp in real time using Apollo interfaces, with low DSP use. And with Unison technology, you get all of the classic preamp’s impedance, gain staging “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors that have made it legendary.

API 500 EQ Collection

API 500 EQ Collection

Faithfully capturing the punch, transparency, and tight imaging of API’s iconic vintage EQs, the API 500 EQ Collection expertly emulates these classic tone shapers. The API 550A offers three overlapping bands of parametric EQ, independent 50 Hz to 15 kHz band-pass filter, and selectable peaking/shelving modes. The API 560 plug‑in lets you sculpt with ten bands of graphic EQ, ideal for crafting with surgical precision. Plus, API’s “Proportional Q” intuitively widens bandwidth at lower boost/cut levels and narrows it at higher levels, giving you more control over your mix.

Note: The API Complete UAD Bundle does not include LUNA API Console Emulation or API Summing Extensions.

API Vision Console Gone?

"UAD Ultimate 9 is the most comprehensive UAD plug‑in bundle available. With all 107 UA‑developed plug‑ins, including top‑sellers from Neve, SSL, Fender, API, Ampex, Capitol Studios, and more — you get a fully‑stocked analog studio at huge savings."

The UAD Ultimate copy needs updated if you really mean to withhold this API Vision Console update from UAD Ultimate owners.

Even better!

I had the MK1 version of this collection and loved it. This new version improves upon the previous one by making the overall layout and workflow much more accessible. The sound is still stellar and punchy, and the ability to offload the console to native DSP is just icing on the cake! Try slapping the console on every track in a project. Highly recommended from a sonic and workflow standpoint!

Dumpster fire decision UAD

The best way to get back at UAD for doing this is to start buying Warm Audio products and quit buying into the gimmick of these plugins. The emulations are good but they are missing the warmth and fatness of real analogue outboard gear. Try a WA76 and ask yourself why you need to spend another dollar on a plug-in ever again.

Bollocks

I've been backing away from UAD for the last couple years. Why am I re-buying stuff I've owned since the first versions came out? $150 for a very subtle sound upgrade (which is highly subjective, anyway) is stupid. Computers can hack lots of native plugs these days, and UAD is being matched and surpassed in quality at every turn. You're not the only game in town any more, UAD. I'm running out of reasons to stick with you. I got onboard with the UAD platform at the very beginning. Nothing gold can stay.

Great for distorted input

I recorded some moog effects with this plug in as insert input in the UA Console, and it blowed my mind. Awesome!!

wait, i get to pay again for it...?

as with the Neve plugs we get to pay the same price as the sale when we've already purchased these no legacy products? C'mon Avid...I mean UA. And while id love to have the graphic EQ in my Vision strip its not worth another 150$. SHould be a way deeper discounts for "leagcy" customers!

Been waiting for something like this, a fantastic companion to the Neve Preamp and the 610 plugins.

This was my favorite plugin, while it still worked

I've been using the Vision Channel Strip for about a year or so. It was my favorite plugin. I loved putting this thing in my unison slot. Sounds great whenever I want to scoop the mids for guitar. Crank the preamp and compress the hell out of a bass guitar, and you're in business. I also used it in my DAW for my kick and snare channels in nearly every single project. Adds some great punch to the kick, and I love the crack it adds to the snare's high end. Unfortunately, I can no longer use the plugin ever since the new version came out. That's right. The legacy version does not work. When I select the legacy version, the plugin gets disabled and I get an error message saying that it's not authorized. It happens in my DAW and in console. I have tried to reinstall, but I am still having issues. So it's just money down the drain at this point. And then asking me $150 to upgrade? Throw away more money? I call shenanigans. I don't mean to sound rude and I do want to emphasize that this is an incredible plugin (when it works), but this is just unbelievable.
