Two Classic API EQs for One Great Price!

The Waves API 550 Collection gives you two amazing classic processors. The API 550A and the API 550B are two pro-quality EQs found in serious music production studios around the word. Modeled on the 1960's legend, the API 550A EQ delivers a sound that has been a hallmark of high end studios for decade. You can set its high and low frequency controls as either peaking or shelving, and you can insert its band-pass filter independently of all other settings.

The API 550 also includes the API 550B 4-band equalizer. Featuring four overlapped EQ bands, the 550B gives your tracks that sweet analog sound that API is renowned for. With 7 switchable filter frequencies spanning up to 5 octaves per band, the 550B's "Proportional Q" automatically widens the filter bandwidth at minimal settings and narrows it at higher settings. Together, the API 550A and API 550B give you a vast range of tonal possibilities perfect for any project.

Top Notch Plugin

I love Waves and this is one of the plugins why. Great equalization that adds it's own unique coloring to a track that gives the track a little wow factor. Versatile enough to use on any track. I always seem to use this plugin particularly on my piano tracks; it adds a definition, warmth and presence to my piano tracks whereas other eq's seem to take away or limit the sound in some fashion. It also seems to be pretty CPU efficient.
