API 529 stereo compressor

Posted on: Tuesday 13th of February 2018

api_529_smBased on the success of the 19-inch, rack-mountable 2500, the 529 takes many of the features and controls from API’s famous stereo compressor and puts them into the first dual slot 500 series module from API. This stereo compressor features API’s THRUST circuitry for a punchy low end (frequency dependent side chain control), along with an Old/New switch that lets you choose between classic and modern compression characteristics: Old for vintage-style feedback compression and New for today’s more common feed-forward compression. The Auto-makeup Gain button lets you adjust ratio and threshold controls without affecting the output level. There are three selectable compressor curve Knee settings, and the audio circuit uses the well-known API 2520 and 2510 Discrete Op Amps with transformer output.
The 529 is priced at $2,195 / £1,574 (ex VAT)
