Großer EQ im kleinen Rahmen
noiseless, 05.05.2021
Der API 550b Discrete....großer EQ im kleinen Rahmen...

Wer API und die alten analogen Pulte kennt, weiß auch was der 550b mit dem Sound macht.

Eine weicher aber doch druckvoller EQ.
Ich benutze ihn oft zusammen mit dem API 527 Compressor bei Gesang oder im Schlagzeug (Kick, Snare).

Die Bedienung ist einfach. Die Potis lassen sich etwas schwerer drehen bringen aber daher wieder ein Gefühl von hoher Wertigkeit.

Sound, Verarbeitung, Bedienung einfach 5 Sterne.
