Description

The API 527 compressor is a single channel module based on API's 225L discrete channel compressor.  The 527 features comprehensive controls including variable attack, release, ratio and outut gain controls.  The unit also includes API's patented Thrust circuit, first offered on the 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor.  A 10-segment LED meter is switchable between gain reduction and output level.

"Anyone who has used the 225L compressor found in API consoles has expressed a longing for the same kind of flexibility and control in the 500 Series for some time." said Larry Droppa, President of API.  "We're delighted to now offer the 527 to complement our vintage 525 compressor, which has been many engineers' favorite compressor over the years."

527s in the 1608 are a must

Just bought a pair of 527s for our 1608. Ryan at VK was super helpful, took the time to explain the 527s and how they could be linked in the 1608. Also offered up several other compression options that we should keep on our bucket list. Installation in the 1608 was straight forward and a little bit of soldering allowed us to link the two units for stereo link mode. Drum buss is punchy
