    API Audio 527 - "My go to compression"


    The API 527 is a 500 series compression/limiter. I love the way it handles the threshold and has great attack and release capabilities via the controls. This unit as a whole has some of the best compression that you will hear in this type of unit th…

    API Audio 212L - "Awesome Compact Mic Pre"


    This is an API mic pre. API tends to make universally awesome gear, and their mic pres are top of the line. This is basically a stripped-down version of one of their 512 mic pres, which are arguably their best-known pre. It's a solid-state pre, is al…

    API Audio 212L - moosers's review


    The API Audio 212L is a mini microphone preamplifier that is a module for a 200 series rack casing. The 200 series rack is a smaller, less popular version of the incredibly popular 500 series casings. You won't see this mic preamp around too much, …

    API Audio 7800 - moosers's review


    The API Audio 7800 Master Module is a piece of gear to use in tandem with either the API 8200 or the 7600 modules. I've used it with a series of 8200 line mixers, as it's almost like having a console if you've got this and a few of the eight channel…

    The API Audio 554 is a three band, semi-parametric equalizer. It is a 500 series (lunchbox) style module, only fitting within these confines. It is an analog piece of gear, consisting of no connections of it's own, except of course the connections …

    API Audio 3124+ - "Four Mic Pre's in one Rackspace!"


    These are some of my favorite mic pres that I have used at the new studio that I work at. I really like the fact that they are such a useful mic pre and don't color the sound. These are analog mic pre's. They are incredibly easy to use and have a han…
