Legendary API sound

29.09.2016
This things rocks.
If you are there it's because you already know it.

Stellar API sound and improved functionality made this compressor an Industry Standard that you can find in almost ANY professional recording/mixing/mastering studio.

Tons of make-up gain and punch, selectable threshold "knee" behaviour, auto-gain function, switchable HP+LP filters, side-chain inputs, stereo link knob, fully adjustable release time and of course 3 different compression modes plus the "feedforward" or "old" compression modes that affects color and sound of the unit.

This compressor is really capable of working on almost everything and give you always what you want.
A true BEAST

I use it 100% of the time in every project I work on.

There is simply nothing close to versatility of this power-horse. Undefeated on Drum- or Stereo-bus.
