Aphex  CX-500
App 514-721-1518   
Series module based on Aphex's acclaimed CX-1 compressor/gate unit
.Patented EasyRider® compressor
.Logic-assisted gate
.Jensen output transformer
.Multi-function meter for gain reduction, gating and output levels

The CX 500 combines the technologies of the Aphex Logic-Assisted gate and EasyRider® automatic compressor. The Logic-Assisted Gate provides reliable, accurate, and stable gate operation. The patented design never false triggers, clicks or chatters. Once triggered, the gate progresses through its attack, hold and release sequence. The CX 500 is designed to have both the compressor and gate work as a seamlessly integrated system. When the Logic-Assisted gate activates, the EasyRider® compressor is prevented from releasing. This avoids the compressor attempt...

Api  525
App 514-721-1518   
Originally released in the 70's, the API 525 is a "feedback" type compressor, such as the 1176 and 660, etc. An input (threshold) control and output (make-up gain) control are provided. An additional "Ceiling" fine tune function modifies threshold and make-up gain for precise changes in compression without changes in output. A compression/limit switch sets ratio at either 2:1 or 20:1. Attack time is as fast as 15u/s. Four auto release modes are offered via two switches, 0.1s, 0.5s, 1.5s, & 2.0s. A De-Ess function inserts an inverse vocal energy curve filter in the detector for effective sibilance/p-pop reduction. The 525 is an identical re-issue of one of the most popular API products ever.
 
Api  527
App 514-721-1518   
The API 527 takes it's place alongside the family of API VCA based compressors, the 225L and the 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor. Anyone familiar with those units will immediately be at home with the 527. Features common to the line like "feed forward" (NEW) and "feed back" (OLD) gain reduction methods selectable on the front panel, provide a choice of "that old way", or "the new way" of compression, for the highest level of flexibility in signal gain control. The "old way" or Feed-Back method is what most of the classic compressors used for the gain control circuit. The "new way" gain reduction is more typical of the newer VCA type compressors that rely on RMS detectors for the gain control voltage.

There is a "SOFT"/"HARD" switch for an "over-easy" type compression resulting in a ver...
 
Api  550A Discrete 3 Band EQ
App 514-721-1518   
The 550A provides reciprocal equalization at 15 points in 5 steps of boost to a maximum of 12dB of gain at each point. The fifteen equalization points are divided into three overlapping ranges. The high and low frequency ranges are individually selectable as either peaking or shelving, and a band-pass filter may be inserted independently of all other selected equalization settings. Frequency ranges and boost/cut are selected by three dual-concentric switches, and a pushbutton "in" switch allows the EQ to be silently introduced to the signal path. A small toggle switch is used to insert the band-pass filter into the 550A.
 
Api  550B
App 514-721-1518   
4 bandes paramétriques / 4 unités configurables avec préamp et / ou EQThe API 550 EQ played a major part in the history of music recording in the USA during the 60's and 70's. Originally conceived for use in API's consoles, this latest 550 "B" version is a continuation of the original 1967 550 through the 550A with one additional filter band and several new frequencies. Incorporating API's exclusive circuitry and proprietary components (such as the legendary API 2520 op-amp), the 550B artfully blends the past with the present. So many hit records still depend on the unique 550 sound, that the 550B will be an invaluable tool you will turn to again and again. The API 550B-unlike any other you will ever use.
 
Api  560
App 514-721-1518   
10 bandes graphiques / 4 unités configurables avec préamp et / ou EQ Originally conceived for use in API Consoles of the 60's and 70's, the API 560 re-issue is a unique device designed to accomplish tasks that no other EQ can do. It delivers that "one-of-a-kind" API sound, precision easy set filtering, and high headroom in a very small package. Extremely fast to set and reset using accurate zero detents, the curve shaping potential of the 560 is unmatched. At home both in field recording and the studio environment, this "new-old" version is a re-issue of the original 560 with improved resolution in the critical area of ±4 dB. Incorporating API's exclusive circuitry and proprietary components (such as the legendary 2520 op-amp), the re-issue of the 560 artfully blends the past with present-...

Spécial 541.12$ CAD   
The DerrEsser is a multi function dynamic filtering device, in an API 500 series module format. In its basic ?DS? mode, the DerrEsser is an effective, level insensitive de-esser, which is a device that will adjust the high frequency gain on overly trebly or spiky vocal, or other source. By using a crossover technique, and dividing the audio up into a high frequency range and a low frequency range, the DerrEsser can use its Voltage Controlled Amp to turn down comparatively high or harsh high frequencies in an extremely musical manner. However, unlike other de-essers, the device is not limited to just de-essing, and allows for multi use of its circuitry.
