Universal Audio announces its release of the API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In ($299) for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces. Featuring five API modules—the 212L Microphone Preamplifier, 215L High/Low Cut Filters, 235L Gate/Expander, 225L Compressor/Limiter, and 550L 4-Band Equalizer—the API Vision Channel Strip plug-in allows owners of Apollo audio interfaces and UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware to impart their tracks with the same focus, punch, and harmonic detail as its high-end hardware counterpart.
The API Vision Channel Strip Plug-In is part of the new UAD Software Version 7.3. It models custom 2520 API op-amp and transformers with circuit nonlinearities, allows recording in real time via Apollo interfaces (with a reported sub-2ms latency) and mixing workflows via UAD-2 hardware, offers more than 70 artist presets from Joe Chiccarelli, Neil Dorfsman, David Isaac, Nathaniel Kunkel and John Paterno. It requires a UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide.
