Developed in association with Automated Processes Incorporated, the API Collection features four precision processors based on renowned API modules: the 550A 3-Band Equalizer, the 550B 4-Band Equalizer, the 560 Graphic Equalizer, and the 2500 Stereo Compressor.
Used by engineers worldwide on countless hit records, these modules deliver a sound like no other. And with the API Collection, Waves captures every nuance of their unique sonic signatures.
As the latest addition to our family of modeled hardware processors, the API Collection carries on the Waves legacy of advanced audio technology. The API Collection is much more than software emulations of hardware; it is the sound of API.
Modeled on API’s late 1960’s legend, the API 550A EQ delivers a sound that has been a hallmark of high end studios for decades.
The API 2500 is a dynamics processing powerhouse that lets you deliver the punch with absolute accuracy. Its dual channel design lets the 2500 also function as two separate mono channels via a single compression setting.
