Scotts Valley, CA (November 7, 2016)—Universal Audio has released its new API 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in.
The plug-in emulates the API 2500 Bus Compressor, which has been used for decades to provide energy, movement and tone to stereo mixes and subgroups. Modeled by Universal Audio's design team, the plug-in has been licensed and authenticated by Automated Processes, Inc.
The API 2500 Bus Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces replicates the all-discrete circuit path with Thrust circuitry and features a detailed modeling of API's custom transformers and 2510 and 2520 op amps.
Signature API 2500 features include patented Thrust sidechain filtering, "new" and "old" compressor types, and Variable Sidechain Link. There are also plug-in-only features, such as dry/wet parallel processing and headroom for user-customizable operating level
The plug-in also comes with artist presets from Jeff Balding (Faith Hill, Trace Adkins), Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White), Ryan Hewitt (The Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and others.
