More Than Just a Demo
Looks like API is offering up some new gear models, including a tube pre, and tube compressor. I was surprised how "reasonable" the prices were, and am particularly interested in the stereo 4 band, parametric equalizer. Not sure how they sound but API knows good audio, so my expectations are that they are good.
check em out at their site.
Oh man oh man, this could be good. Fingers crossed. @$1199 it's excellent per channel cost, got input And output xformers, and also an an output knob per channel, which could be useful when not only for good gain staging, but especially if these trannys overdrive pleasantly. Plus the op amps are easily swappable. If I'm dreaming I don't wanna wake up!
What can you tell me about the API 2520?
- What made it famous or sot after?
- Did API actually design it?
- This is reissued in this Pulse EQP 1A3. Are they making it? The spec sheets attached have a date of 1981.
I can't just demo one here either. Any history on it would be a fun read at least.
Is this it on the back of this EQP 1A3
Particularity on the Pulse Techniques EQP 1A3 . Not interested in other clones.
I'm addicted to Pultec's this month and want to know how sweet the high end is on the SS compared to the tube version?
I know you are looking for opinions on these or have some if you are here.
1. Can I use the api 205 direct input module as a stand alone input?.. Granted i buy the chasse with the power supply... will turning down the input level of the VS2480, and turning up the gain on the api 205L be super effective? or not.

Well we know where Pro Audio is headed!
I would love this as an add-on to my Neos system . Best of both worlds.
API just nailed it. Check this out and listen to the awesome distortion. It sounds partially digital but analog smooth. Interesting mix and sound. If this is the sound of THE BOX, I want one. Perfect combination.
Looking at adding another 2-bus comp to my chain. I'm going to get them both sooner or later but just wanted to hear some opinions. Please chime in and share your experiences on either of these.
I am going to undertake an experiment, and I need the help of knowledgeable people. In return, I will share my results freely in another thread for all to use. So if you contribute, you stand to gain something. Perhaps a perfect recreation of the API525, perhaps an imperfect one, but most assuredly, a new idea on how to achieve the sounds of your dreams.
