API 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor

Details
The API 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor is a unique compressor unit featuring patented 'Thrust' circuitry. The 'Thrust' circuitry allows you to utilise the punch and hard hitting low-end frequencies, creating a high quality and thick sound. The API 2500's primary function is as a stereo compressor, although you can also use it as two separate units. One of the most unique features of this compressor is the ''old/new'' switches that let you choose between classic and modern compression types. This opens up a whole range of different sounds and applications with your API 2500 adding extra control and versatility. Also featured is an auto-makeup gain button that permits the user to set the threshold or ratio whilst maintaining a constant output level.

Mono Functionality and Auto-Makeup Gain

The API 2500 provides a variable link between the left and right channels, making it easier to work with your mono sources. The auto-makeup gain button on the output stage allows you to control the threshold or ratio, while automatically maintaining a constant output level. This gives you added versatility when it comes to treating audio.

API Audio History

In 1968, Automated Processes Inc. began building quality consoles for broadcast applications. Soon, the company's products found favor with recording studios, and a string of industry-leading advancements (including computerized console automation, the first VCA, and more) followed. API produced the 2520 amplifier, one of the most famous op-amps in the recording industry, and their consoles and products found homes in such iconic studio facilities as The Hit Factory, Record Plant, Ocean Way, and Sunset Sound, among others. In fact, there are over 700 classic API consoles around the globe - many of which are still in use. And the company certainly isn't resting on its laurels; today's API products give you the same unbeatable combination of utility, innovation, and great sound.
