The API 527 compressor/limiter brings the same incredible character and response to your 500 Series rack found in their 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor. Featuring both API's newer "feed forward" and original "feed back" gain reduction methods, the 527 covers a wide range of tone - from classic warmth to modern precision. The 527 also offers you API's famous "over-easy" soft knee type, with the option of engaging a hard knee for limiting. A wide range of threshold, attack, and decay settings give you an extended degree of control over your compression, and the 527's detented attack and decay knobs make recalling your favorite settings easy and reliable. And since the API 527 uses both 2510 and 2520 discrete op-amps, it give you signature API sound.
