Track and mix using stunning emulations of API's most iconic preamp, compression, EQ and expander/gate console modules

Glue together your stereo mixes and subgroups with the world’s finest circuit emulation of the revered API 2500 compressor

Easily track "through" the world’s only authentic plug-in emulation of the legendary Class-A, API 212L mic preamp

Sculpt sources with API's vintage 560 10-band graphic EQ module and beloved 550A parametric EQ

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.

Sounds good but can't see it

I have a 4k monitor but this plugin is not resizable and thus to small to see it. This seems to be the normal for all Apollo plugins. 4k monitors or higher are now the norm for PC users and not making your plugins 4k resizable just makes them useless. Great sound but if your in 4k go to another company. It seems UAD has abandoned PC users anyway. Don't even get me started on Luna

Great sound, annoying to pay for it if you own Vision Channel Strip

Nothing to add on the sound that hasn’t been said already. I only bought it to get the Console Emulation as I own the Vision Channel strip. I’m annoyed to buy something I already own, I should have gotten it for free hence the 3 stars.

Best api emulation

It's the best api 2500 emulation for me!

It brings life to any sound source just by turning it on. To understand it, test it on your master channel. The 560 makes me want to have a 2448 with 560s in every channel! I love the easy visual and the accuracy.

Transparent preamp

Nice preamp with good headroom. With hi and low pass filters it would be perfect.

The More I Use It, The More I Love It!

The more I use the API channel strip, the more I love it. It's an amazing emulation of the infamous API gear. For those of us that need the ability to switch consoles based on client demand, this is a powerful tool to have in the arsenal. Magic on acoustic guitars; gut pushing punch on drums; crystal on vocals; power for guitars and keys. Altogether provides that API sound in-the-box for impact on mixes. Worth every penny.

Has become my go-to

Good stuff, but...

Sound is great, without any doubt. Unfortunately the upgrade doesn't include the API Console Emulation for Luna nor the API pre for some color without running out of DSP.

EQ that pops

This EQ is amazing, the 550A simply pops out a vocal as soon as you apply a preset , that how good it is.
Can’t wait to see what’s next from UAD
