API has long been a household name in every recording studio, with their classic line of powerful yet musical analog gear finding its way into many a lunchbox. And while it can be easy to rest on your laurels, innovation is something that has been central to API from the very beginning. The latest release from this legendary US-based audio manufacturer proves that there’s always room to try something new.
Come join us this week as we get hands-on with these new units from API!
All New Select Series
Automated Processes Inc. (API) announces the SV-12 Compressor and SV-14 4-band EQ 500 Series modules as the latest additions to the API Select range of products. Designed, built, and tested at the API factory in Jessup, Maryland, API Select products are specifically engineered to complement API’s classic line of mic pre’s, equalizers, and compressors.
API Select SV-12 Compressor
The API Select SV-12 features the original compressor circuit designed for the ATI Paragon live analog mixing consoles. Re-engineered for the 500 Series format, the SV12 provides comprehensive, easy-to-use compression with full LED metering of both output and gain reduction. The unit also includes API’s patented THRUST circuitry, which protects sensitive high-frequency content of the audio signal even under the most vigorous of compression ratios. Two channels can be linked for use as a stereo compressor with true RMS power summing of the left and right signals.
API Select SV-14 EQ
The API Select SV-14 EQ circuit design is likewise rooted in API’s history. Faithfully re-engineered from the highly sought-after APSI 562 EQ’s which were distributed by API during the 1970s and 1980s, the SV14 provides parametric equalization at an affordable price point. The SV14 also features an EQ in/out switch, transformer balanced output, and dual concentric knobs, which provide continuously variable control of boost/cut and frequency selection.
