Jessup, Maryland - June 2007:
API announces the release of their line of modeled plug-ins. Aptly named the API Collection, the new plug-ins are co-engineered with and for Waves.
The new Waves API Collection is a set of precision-engineered plug-ins that digitally render the classic sound of API analog consoles and components. Recognizing that only the best would do for an authentic API plug-in, the company chose to partner with Waves in order to create the best product possible.
The API Collection features four processors, modeled on the most popular API modules: the 550A three-band equalizer, 550b four-band EQ, the 560 graphic equalizer and the 2500 stereo compressor.
API modules are familiar to engineers worldwide and are well known for their unique sonic signatures, now digitally reproduced in the API Collection. Noted Larry Droppa, president of API, "We are extremely pleased with the results achieved by Waves in producing software plug-ins for our products. Waves has been able to replicate the recognizable look of API and have put forth a superb effort in maintaining the sound quality of the software. While we still believe nothing totally replaces the hardware, we are confident that the new software represents the heritage and lineage of API very well indeed."
The API Collection is now available from Waves.
