Introducing the API 529 Stereo Compressor, a fusion of API's iconic compression technology with the convenience and popularity of the API 500 Series format. Meticulously crafted to offer a broad spectrum of compression possibilities, the 529 provides warmth, clarity, and punch, catering to both subtle adjustments and impactful compression effects.
Drawing inspiration from the highly successful 2500, the 529 incorporates features and controls from API's renowned stereo compressor, marking it as the first dual-slot 500 Series module from API. This stereo compressor includes API's patented THRUST® circuitry for a dynamic low end. It features an Old/New switch, allowing users to toggle between classic and modern compression characteristics—Old for vintage-style feedback compression and New for contemporary feed-forward compression. The Auto-makeup Gain button enables adjustments to ratio and threshold controls without affecting the output level. With API's discrete op-amps and transformer technology, the 529 ensures the legendary analog sound that API is renowned for. Backed by API's distinctive 5-year warranty, the 529 is a versatile and reliable addition to the API 500 Series.
