API 2500 Stereo Compressor

High-quality summation compressor

The API 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor is a compressor featuring selectable ratio, attack and release times with a variable link between left and right channels. The API 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor allows adjustment of sonic qualities to alter the punch and tone of the stereo mix. The 19" rack-mountable unit boasts a dual-channel design that can be configured for stereo compression or for use as two separate units via a single compression setting.

The old compression style uses "feedback" type of compression, while the new style uses a "feed forward" type where the compressor side chain is fed directly from the unit input. Additionally, the output stage exhibits an auto-makeup gain button that permits the user to vary the threshold or ratio while automatically maintaining a constant output level. The 2500 ensures fidelity with its all-discrete, fully balanced design and two front panel VU meters showing input, output and gain reduction levels.

The main features of the API 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor include:

  • Variable Threshold: -20dBu to +10dBu
  • Selectable Ratio, Attack & Release Times
  • THRUST Selectable High-Pass Filter Before RMS Detector
  • Variable Link Between Left & Right Channels
  • Old "Feedback" or New "Feed Forward" Compression
  • Soft, Medium or Hard Knee for Easy to Sharp Compression
  • Auto or Manual Gain Make Up
  • 1/4" Balanced Side Chain Inputs
  • Output Clips at +28dBu
  • Size: 19" (Rack-Mountable)
