Waves API Collection for Academic Institutions
Delivered By Download

API sound in your DAW!

Note: This is an offer from Waves allowing approved educational facilities to purchase this software at a special discounted price. A school Purchase Order (PO) is required to order this product.

The Waves API Collection brings four classic processors from Automated Processes Incorporated to the masses. API is used by engineers worldwide, and has been heard on countless records. Their sound is like no other. The API Collection from Waves captures every nuance of their unique sonic signatures. Developed in association with API, this plug-in bundle re-creates the magic of four of API's most renowned modules: the 550A 3-Band Equalizer, the 550B 4-Band Equalizer, the 560 Graphic Equalizer, and the 2500 Stereo Compressor. For the sound of API in your DAW, Sweetwater can highly recommend the Waves API Collection.

Waves API Collection at a Glance:
  • API 550A - 3-Band Equalizer
  • API 550B - 4-Band Equalizer
  • API 560 - 10-Band Graphic EQ
  • API 2500 - Stereo Compressor
API 550A - 3-Band Equalizer

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. It provides reciprocal equalization at 15 points in 5 steps of boost divided into three overlapping ranges. The high and low frequency ranges are individually selectable as either peaking or shelving, and a band-pass filter can be inserted independently of all other settings. The 550A is a uniquely powerful equalizer with that one-of-a-kind API sound.

API 550B - 4-Band Equalizer

Featuring four overlapped EQ bands, the 550B gives 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. It even lets you undo previous processing, affect or even reverse tonal modifications. With its vast range of tonal possibilities, the API 550B is a versatile EQ for all your processing needs.

API 560 - 10-Band Graphic EQ

Based on API's 1967 classic, the 560 10-Band Graphic Equalizer features precision filtering and massive headroom, so you can take your sound to the edge and beyond. The 560's curve shaping potential is unmatched, while API's unique "Proportional Q" design intuitively widens the filter bandwidth at lower boost/cut levels and narrows it at higher settings. And since boost and cut characteristics are identical, previous actions can be easily undone. For precision equalization with unmatched versatility, turn to the EQ heard on top recordings for decades: the API 560.

API 2500 - Stereo Compressor

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. Using auto-makeup gain, you can adjust Threshold or Ratio while automatically maintaining a constant output level. With both "feed back" and "feed forward" compression types, the 2500 boasts a wide range of incredibly musical parameters which have made it a favorite of engineers the world over.
