Universal Audio Releases the API 2500 Bus Compressor Plug-In for UAD-2 and Apollo Hardware
Endorsed by API and developed by the world-class algorithm team at Universal Audio, the API 2500 Bus Compressor is part of UAD Software v9.0
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA • November 3, 2016 — Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is proud to announce the new API® 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in.
API 2500 Bus Compressor Plug-In — $299
The API 2500 Bus Compressor is a fixture on the stereo bus of many the world's top engineers and producers. Considered the best of the Paul Wolff-era API circuit designs, this iconic hardware is relied upon to deliver energy, movement, and tone to stereo mixes and subgroups.
Available in the UAD Store for $299, the API 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is a spot-on emulation of this classic compressor, capturing its all-discrete circuit path with Thrust® circuitry and features a fanatically detailed modeling of API's custom transformers and 2510 and 2520 op amps.
Using "for-your eyes-only" schematics made available to Universal Audio by API, our team of DSP experts analyzed two classic API 2500s — rackmount and in-console — ensuring one of UA's tightest behavioral circuit models to date — and the definitive representation of this iconic compressor.
