[NAMM] Universal Audio API 500 EQ Collection
Universal Audio announces the impending release of the API 500 Series EQ Plug-In Collection for the UAD platform and Apollo Interface.
This API-endorsed, UA-developed collection features emulations of the legendary API 550A 3-Band and API 560 Graphic equalizers.
Designed by API’s Saul Walker in the late 60's, the 550A and 560 modular EQs featured Walker’s signature 2520 op-amp and proportional Q circuitry. For the API 500 Series EQ Plug-In Collection, UA circuit modeling team captured the filter shapes, band interactions, and filter amplifier clipping behaviors of vintage API 550A and 560 units.
Additionally, the API 500 Series EQ Plug-In Collection includes presets from several famed engineers and producers, including Ross Hogarth (Van Halen, R.E.M., Ziggy Marley), Vance Powell (Jack White, Red Fang, The Dead Weather), Eli Janney (Jet, Ryan Adams, Wilco), Jeff Juliano (John Mayer, Shinedown, Train), Carl Glanville (U2, Billy Joel, Jason Mraz), and Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead, Charlotte Gainsbourg).
Available as part of an upcoming UAD Software release scheduled for February 2013, the API 500 Series EQ Collection will be available for $299US via UA’s Online Store.
