The API Collection from Waves consists of four plug-ins that meticulously model the company's classic dynamic and EQ modules. Developed in association with API, the software delivers the authentic API sound, whether in-the-box or live on stage.

  • API 2500 - Stereo Compressor Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

    The API 2500 from Waves is a dynamics plug-in that features the classic punch of API hardware, while allowing for shaping the tone of mixes with absolute accuracy. Its dual channel design lets it function as two separate mono channels via a single compression setting.

    Its auto-makeup gain function provides the ability to adjust threshold or ratio while automatically maintaining a constant output level. With a choice of an old style "feed back," or the new style "feed forward" compression types, the software delivers a wide range of very musical parameters, making it a favorite of engineers everywhere.

    Switchable three-position Thrust high-pass filter
    Variable-link left and right channels
    Three variable-link filter types
    Three compression modes - soft, medium, and hard knee
    Six release settings - five fixed, one continuous
    Up to 24-bit/96 kHz resolution
    Mono and stereo* components
    *For TDM use, Accel card required for stereo 96 kHz operation
    SoundGrid license compatible with MultiRack Native, StudioRack Native, MultiRack SoundGrid, StudioRack SoundGrid, and eMotion ST Mixer
  • API 550 - Classic Equalizer Plug-Ins (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

    The API 550 from Waves is a plug-in developed in association with API that models two classic API equalization modules. The API 550A module is modeled on the legendary late '60s hardware and provides reciprocal and repeatable equalization at fifteen points in five 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 API 550B functions both as a problem solver and a sweetening device, and provides four overlapped EQ bands with seven switchable filter frequencies spanning up to five octaves per band. "Proportional Q" automatically widens the filter bandwidth at minimal settings and narrows it at higher settings. The EQ can undo previous processing, or even perform reverse tonal modifications.

    API 550A
    Five selected frequency centers per band
    Maximum 12 dB of boost/cut per band in 2-3 dB steps
    "Proportional Q" narrows filter Q at extremes
    High headroom, +30 dB clip level
    API 550B
    Seven selected frequency centers
    12 dB of boost/cut per band
    Bands 1 and 4 offer shelf/peak switching
    High headroom, +30 dB clip level
    General
    Modeled vintage EQ plug-ins
    Up to 24-bit/96 kHz resolution
    Mono and stereo components
    SoundGrid license compatible with MultiRack Native, StudioRack Native, MultiRack SoundGrid, StudioRack SoundGrid, and eMotion ST Mixer
  • API 560 - Graphic EQ Plug-In (Native/SoundGrid, Download)

    The API 560 from Waves is a plug-in based on the classic hardware EQ module from API, providing 10-bands of graphic EQ featuring precision filtering and high headroom, ideal for signal enhancement and room tuning.

    The original's "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.

    Ten-band graphic EQ with customary one octave centers
    12 dB of boost/cut per band
    "Proportional Q" narrows filter Q at extreme filter settings
    Additional resolution in the critical +/-4 dB region
    Clip level greater than +28 dBu
    Up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution*
    *For TDM use, Accel card required for stereo 96 and 192 kHz operation
    Mono and stereo components*
    *No stereo at 96 and 192 kHz in TDM mode - use multi-mono instead
    SoundGrid license compatible with MultiRack Native, StudioRack Native, MultiRack SoundGrid, StudioRack SoundGrid, and eMotion ST Mixer
