Waves 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

Waves 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

Waves 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
