With around 4,000 original 2500 Stereo Bus Compressors still in service, API has announced the 2500+, retaining the functional and sonic characteristics of the original and adding several additional design parameters that have been carefully incorporated into the original unit.

API 2500+ Stereo Bus CompressorAmong the recording industry’s ‘go-to’ stereo bus compressor since it introduction in 2002, the API 2500 is characterised by its signature tone and warmth. Today, in an age of digital sound, the 2500 is frequently used to enhance mixes across virtually all musical genres, from classical and jazz to pop and rock.

A large percentage of tours also carry one or more 2500 Stereo Bus Compressors for main, subgroup and monitor mix buses. With the standard for live sound now being digital front of house and monitor consoles, the 2500 provides punch, fat bottom end and warmth.

New features include an expanded Threshold control (+20dB to -20dB from the original +10dB to -20dB) and a new Blend/Mix function. Featured in the limited production 50th Anniversary Edition, the Blend/Mix function offers both cross-fader and parallel mix control of the compressed and uncompressed signals. A full list of the unit’s features and specifications can be found on the API website

‘Over the past 18 years, many improvements have been made to the 2500, some small and some larger,’ says API Director of Engineering, Todd Humora. ‘The 2500+ is an evolution of the 2500, with the addition of a few key features that our users have had on their wish lists for quite some time. We’re very grateful for the ongoing success of the 2500 and it’s our hope that the new 2500+ will allow for even greater creativity among its users in the studio, and in the live market.’
