Come Meet Your Colleagues And New Gear 

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.

The API Select SV12 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.

The API Select SV14 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.

With brand new gear offerings from a world-renowned manufacturer, gear giveaways, and Dolby Atmos demos, you don’t want to miss out on this Westlake Pro Tech Talk.

Universal Audio has long been a stalwart of the audio industry. From interfaces to outboard gear, their gear is found in nearly every studio you can name. Now is the time to get your hands on some of their indispensable new products and ask the pros all the questions your heart desires. We’ll even be giving away a brand new Apollo Twin X Duo! Come on down to the Westlake Pro Tech Talk this coming Wednesday, August 24, from 11-1 pm CT, grab a piece of pizza, learn about LUNA, and join the Universal Audio Universe!

Here’s what we’ll be covering this week.

Pedal Power

Built on powerful dual-engine processing and world-class UAD modeling come three new instrument amplifier pedals to grant your every wish. From sweet, rich cleans to growling, grinding distortion, these new pedal offerings will take your tone on a journey far from home. Whether you seek the quintessential British tube amplifier, the true depth of vintage spring reverb, or the classic richness of an American tweed amp, these new pedals will give you the authentic grit and response you’ve been looking for. 

Impressive Interfaces

The gorgeous clarity and punchy, open tone of Universal Audio’s Apollo line has been heard on countless Grammy-winning albums, and the new elite-class 24-bit/192kHz converters and fine-tuned analog circuitry continue the Apollo legacy. The Apollo’s class-leading sound is the perfect blank canvas for shaping your next hit with Universal Audio’s award-winning UAD Powered Plug-Ins.

The All-Mighty Mic Locker

The SD-1 is Universal Audio’s flagship dynamic microphone for recording and live use, featuring a cardioid polar pattern, selectable low cut and articulation boost switches, and Apollo Channel Strip Presets for instant pro sound. With the SD-1 Standard Dynamic Microphone, you can capture vocals, instruments, livestreams, and podcasts like a pro, quickly giving you polished studio sound that’s broadcast-ready.
