API® 2500 Bus Compressor
API 2500 Bus Compressor
Fantastic sounding compressor
API 2500 -- Immediate Punch
Creates immediate punch and brings out the vibe of the mix.
Love the mix nob, as well as the HP and LP filters.
Works as advertised on drum busses.
Very handy as a 2-buss mixing tool.
Really this plug is fantastic! I don’t have the hardware but to me hear so good! Must!!!
So cool to get it in the rack. Fat and Punchy
From "great" to "wow!"
The API 2500 is my new favorite drum buss compressor. I had a drummer in who I have worked with for years. He always likes the drum sounds we get but after inserting the API 2500 on the drum buss, he was visibly happy. From "great" to "wow!" I'll take that any day.
Now if you could only make a Great River unison preamp...
Preserves guitar grit, crunch and clarity ...
I had read reviews of the hardware unit and it’s ability to feed signal back in that helped preserve the nuanced grit and crunch in heavy guitars... So I had high expectations, and what I got was great— exactly what I have come to expect from all UAD plugs. Solid five stars .
THE MAGICAL DRUM BUS!
I use this almost every time on my drum bus! It just has that glue that everyone is looking for. 10/10 recommend this for every engineer!
GoTo Tool for Drums
So powerful for Clubkicks!
I use it in every Session
Better mixes right away
I just got this and only just started using this on a mix I'm currently doing, so I don't yet have extensive experience to write a comprehensive review. But, as soon as I connected it and called up one of the presets, I could instantly hear a punchier and warmer sound than I've been getting from my UAD SSL G Bus Compressor I've been using for years now. The API has a much bigger set of controls for sound shaping, so this is likely to be my go-to bus compressor from now on!
This beast is a killer machine !
So soft and delicate. So strong and fast. This is must have piece of gear. Thank you UAD team !
Put it anywhere you like.
The compressor will immediately feel the difference.
My favorite compressor!!!!
Great work UAD
So match character! It will be my favourite drum buss.
THE bus compressor!
Put it on the master bus, just a tiny gain reduction and a lot of the mixing is already done! Awesome...I also have the waves version, but this one sounds for me much more fuller and rounder. Thanks UAD
Huge Bus compressor, apply liberally. Or just use it once. All to taste but this sounds just like the hardware.
API makes it bang!
It makes my drums pop and brings all of my mixes together! It's the glue that binds us!
I have the original API 2500 - The UAD Plug-In does not have to hide!
Great ! Thanks UAD !
Ce compresseur réputé apporte aux mixages stéréo et aux sous-groupes l’énergie, le mouvement et un son comme aucun autre, avec une précision absolue.
