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.

A small device with a hot character

Great preamp. Warms up the signal nicely. Liked it on voice, bass, for saturating subtle timbres. Thanks API and UAD!

Awesome API Saturation

I’ve been a big fan of the UAD API Vision channel strip for years. I decided to buy a real 550b EQ and 527A compressor. They sound amazing, of course, but I was missing the preamp gain. This little plugin completes the package.

Fantastic!

Using this plug-in as Unison channelstrip gives me more flexibility and ease. As expected the sound quality is stunning

LPX switch to UAD Luna

I’m a hobbyist that recently switched from LPX and Izotope plugins to Luna with full API console emulation bundle…. So what’s changed?? Almost everything….
1. Recording is much easier in Luna
2. I got in a bad habit of mixing with my eyes…. Now that I have fewer visual cues to look at, I’m using my ears… which is forcing me to really learn this system.
3. Like many have said, just running the tough mix through Studer, Ampex and Summing sounds really good…. Now add API consoles and wow…
4. I have a new MacBook Pro 16gb RAM computer and was worried that no way would it handle all of this stuff… wrong…. Works great… now I don’t do projects with a hundred tracks… instead, I’ll very carefully bounce complex backing vocals or orchestration into stereo files…. Much easier to deal with…
Love limited choices…. Makes committing much easier. The gate, compressor and EQ’s sound beautiful and I can work quickly….
My hobby is a lot more satisfying with mixes coming together much faster and sounding great….

UAD, Please Allow Your Plugins to be Resized!!!

I am giving this 1 star because here we are in the year 2022, and UAD plugins are still not resizable in Pro Tools. Come on, even $29 Waves plugins are resizable. It looks very unprofessional to have 50% user interface and 50% blank space in the plugin window.

Also, please add code that detects which plugins I own and only add those to Pro Tools rather than forcing ALL of your plugins on Pro Tools. Again, here we are in the year 2022. There is no excuse for this.

favourite channel strip

Authentic sounding, rich in functions, tweak able without getting lost, with a native version, a low dsp footprint, and a LUNA console integration! Thank you UAD for fixing the drama last year by minimizing the cost of the legacy version upgrade.

The best for mixbus

Perfect for mixbus and almost every source! The weight and lows it gives to drums are amazing! Combined with distressor is a grate combo!
