Makes the drums go SMACK!!
Man, this thing just makes a drum bus pop. Even individual drum tracks benefit from the 2500. I also love how it glues the master together without making mush out of it. Money well spent!
I worked in a studio for a few years that had an API Legacy Plus and two API 2500. This is one of my favorite compressors out there. UAD did a fantastic job with this plugin!

It's amazing magical channel strip with soft results, I use it and its great for lead vocal and guitars.
After getting this plugin and trying it out on various things, I've found it to be useful for just about everything! With a gain dial, gate, compressor and EQ, this plugin is a perfect place to start for all of your mixes. Use it a the top of your channel strips to quickly dial in great EQs and get a nice console sound on your whole track. Highly recommended plugin
Drums, Drums, Drums
Love it on Drums, it's also nice to have 4/5 of these running across individual drum hits.
Amazing Channel Strip!
Lovely sound. Very different to the Neve sound, but I use them together all the time. I use these when I'm on the road and I don't want to drag my API's with me.
Great channel strip
To me API is synonymous with punch, and this plugin perfectly captures the API DNA. The gate/expander in conjunction with the compressor/limiter is the perfect recipe to give punch to lifeless drums and other material. The EQ is also very musical and allows me to sculpt the sound in ways I desire.
WOW!!! Better than the Neve Channel Strip
I was very interested in the Neve Channel Strip but quickly turned to the API Vision when I realized the Neve was such a DSP hog. With the Apollo 16, I can run 16 instances of this API Vision plugin. That's exactly what I wanted to do. I actually use the Slate Virtual Microphone, but instead of using their supplied plugin, I've been using this and the sound possibilities are amazing. The versatility is amazing, the EQ, compressor is great. The Preamp section is amazing and loaded with character. You couldn't really mess up sound with the Neve EQ. It was too musical. This channel strip is all the doctor ordered. Try it out.
UAD do it again
Awesome Channel SAtrip
I havent messed around too much with it yet but so far what i hear i like very much
if only i could have it on every channel in my pro tools sessions.....
Love in snare, oh, guitars, drum buss, mix buss
UA continues to outdo themselves!
That API Sound!!!
It's a great job of UA!!! Amazing sound of this Channel Strip!!!
I was waiting for this one on the UAD Platform. It is just greta and I love it :-)
I've used this channel strip for about 2 months now, and I'm really impressed with how authentic it sounds. Great for tracking acoustic and electric guitars, snare, kick, etc.
Compressor which is must have
UAD Thanks! Finally you have done this! Now we have this wonderful compressor.
I am impressed. It works great with any material
Better and bigger
I always used the waves one. It's for sale now , enough said :-)
It's THE API plug in I was hoping for!
The API Sound
For those that are familiar with the API console, you will immediately be reminded of the API sound using this Bus Compressor. I have just began to work with the plugin and it is very impressive. UAD has done it again. :-)
