The Waves API Collection Plug-In Bundle is developed in association with API for authentic API sound, in-the-box and live on stage. This Collection features four precision-modeled plugins based on renowned API equalizer and compressor modules.

The Waves API Collection Plug-In Bundle features four precision-modeled plugins based on renowned API equalizer and compressor modules: the API 550A 3-Band EQ, API 550B 4-Band EQ, API 560 Graphic EQ, and API 2500 Stereo Compressor. From its beginnings in 1968, the API sound has been a favorite of audio engineers. Hundreds of API consoles are still in daily use in the world’s leading studios, and countless legends – Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers – have been recorded and mixed using the API EQ and compression modules. The classic API units deliver a sound like no other. With the Waves API Collection, Waves has captured every nuance of their unique color and sonic signature.

    Api Bundle
    Shark Studio

    This has been a go to bundle for me on every session. The 2500 compressor alone makes becomes this worth it. Then you add the eq's with it and its amazing.

    One of the best in the Waves line
    Steve McCabe

    I didn't want to like these. I've used API gear at a number of big studios and we usually turned to Pultec and Neve EQs. But I found myself using to these a lot as "in the box" EQ's. Really great sounding and easy to use. My "go to " EQs right now.

    Great for a Plugin
    Ryan Frith

    I really like the 2500 series compressor plug; it really has some bite and adds character. I find it really nice on a drum sub mix. The EQs are decent for plugins, although none of them are as fun as decent outboard stuff.

    A Plugin That Fills the Void
    John Erler

    I'll start off this review by saying that I have had very little opportunity within my lifetime to work on an actual API board or with API modules...so I'm not going to begin to compare this bundle to the real thing. I will say the eq plugins and compressor contained within have really opened up my sound. I mix with Pro Tools LE, and I know my limitations...however this bundle has opened my eyes to new opportunities. The equalizers are aggressive but, used with finesse, will refine and boost the lows and highs in the most appealing way. The compressor takes some time to get use to, but has a great deal of versatility. All that said, Waves plugins aren't the cheapest tools around, but I will confess, I feel like I am getting my money's worth so far.
