Featuring the API Vision Channel Strip plug-in

UA’s Most Colorful Channel Strip Plug-In

UA’s Most Colorful Channel Strip Plug-In

Comprised of five classic API modules, the API Vision Channel Strip plug-in transforms your DAW into a high-end analog mixing desk, injecting your tracks with the sonic color and personality that has made API legendary. Take a quick tour of the five modules below.

Unison Technology for Apollo

Unison Technology for Apollo

Harnessing UA’s groundbreaking Unison technology, the API Vision Channel Strip plug-in gives you all of the API Vision’s important impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and circuit behaviors that have made its 212L preamp one of the most detailed and punchy preamps ever devised. The secret is Unison’s bi-directional control and communication from the API Vision Channel Strip plug-in to the physical mic preamps in Apollo.

Run Signals through the 212L Preamp

Run Signals through the 212L Preamp

Widely praised for its detail and warmth, the 212L Preamp finds its roots in the legendary API 2488 console — best known for the famed “LA sound” of the ’70s and ’80s. UA’s API Vision plug-in expertly models this preamp, right down to its custom 2520 API op-amp and transformers, giving you the unmistakable tone of its esteemed hardware counterpart.

Sculpt Your Sounds with the 550L EQ

Sculpt Your Sounds with the 550L EQ

An evolution of the iconic API 550A, the 550L EQ offers vintage flavor and modern tone shaping via an additional filter band and several new frequencies. API's “Proportional Q” circuitry widens the filter bandwidth at minimal settings, and narrows it at higher settings, resulting in a simple EQ that sounds musical — even when cranked.

Tame Dynamics with the 225L Compressor

Tame Dynamics with the 225L Compressor

A versatile compressor brimming with character, the 225L thrives on any instrument, in any genre — from a single track to an entire mix. With selectable “New” and “Old” functions, you’re afforded two delicious brands of compression, from mild to severe.

Explore the Creative Possibilities of the 235L Gate/Expander

Explore the Creative Possibilities of the 235L Gate/Expander

One of the most expressive gates ever devised, the 235L Noise Gate/Expander is possibly the fastest noise gate available — anywhere. The 235L serves a creative function as well, letting you shape a kick drum’s attack and contour in a host of ways, ranging from subtle and sublime to sick and stuttered.

Make Broad-Stroke Cuts with the 215L Filters

Make Broad-Stroke Cuts with the 215L Filters

A passive, sweepable filter, ideal for broad stroke EQ sculpting, the 215L Cut Filters are powerful tools designed to expertly craft your source material, while preserving its original tone.

      My Go To

      Love this channel strip! I use it for vocals, guitar, and drums. It has everything to craft and polish my sound all in one plug in. I also think the auto make-up gain on the API is a winner!

      Great sounding plugin

      A very effective plugin, in which you can find the true vibe of the API circuits! Top reference for guitars and drums.

      One stop strip

      This plugin is pretty much everything you need. I use this on absolutely everything that I track. I’ve always been a bit uneasy about recording through with equalization or dynamics processing, but this changed that. Can be very transparent or slammed/crushed. Try it, get it.

      Fantastic channel strip!!

      Api vision sounds great, and has so much packed in it, even running synths through it really does add something special to the sound, bigger bottom and a real punch that makes the sound come alive! It’s all great, but I want to specifically mention the hi-pass and Lo-pass filters. They sound so good and are the most musical sounding filters I’ve used, they just really help tame the lows and highs without sounding thin or dark. Love it! 5/5 stars, thanks UAD

      My favourite channel strip, because

      It has cool functions and great color. I’m using it for live streaming with dynamic mics, recording acoustic guitars and vocals too. I’m very happy with it.

      API and drums!

      I bought this for tracking guitars. When I tried it on drums is where it shines the most. As always great stuff from UA plugins.

      Amazing Sounding Plugin, would love to use the modules separately

      Everything about this plugin sounds great, and offers a lot of functionality with all of the sections of the channel strip! My only wish is to someday UAD will offer a split of the plugin into each of its individual parts. Sometimes I only want to add the 550L EQ instead of the entire strip. Thanks for a great product!

      Distinctive, vigorous, good

      Great emulation of the famous mix console channel. Perfectly not only for drums and percussion.
      I would like a finer adjustment of the level of individual EQ filters (for example 1dB instead of 2dB jumps), but it would be no longer an emulation of the original, I know :-).
      I like this; great job.

      Must Have For Guitar/Drums

      I made an entire API Vision console in my DAW with this plugin for drums and guitar, and it turned a dull/crappy mix into something you'd hear on the radio. Definitely worth buying if you're doing rock/alternative/metal.

      The sunset sound ... wow !

      When I saw a video on YouTube saying that you’ve modelled the chip in the sunset sound console , I was interested to say the least !!
      The gain knob , the EQ , the compressor ... everything sounds great and precise ! I’m new with the unit but so far , i love it ! Great job UA !!
