Filter with surgical precision

If you deconstruct the greatest sounds on some of your all-time favorite recordings, you'd be surprised how often filtration is the key. More often than not, cutting a specific frequency is more effective than boosting in other areas of the spectrum. A popular kick drum trick back in in the soulful '70s, for instance, was a minus 12dB cut at 400Hz on an API 550 EQ. Now API gives you a tool designed specifically for filtration with surgical precision - and, of course, it's got that classic API analog mojo. With highpass, lowpass, and a midrange notch with Q control, the API 565 is your new secret weapon. Put one or more in your 500 Series rack.

Quality gear from API

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 Ocean Way, the Record Plant, 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.
