API Select T25

Combine the characteristic sound of API with classic tube performance in the T25 two channel compressor from API Select. Built with a dual-triode vacuum tube, this Class-A, FET feedback-style compressor/limiter uses a custom built transformer on the output stage to deliver a rich, full sound. A fully featured front panel gives access to Attack, Release, Threshold, Make-up, and selectable Ratios of 20:1, 8:1, 4:1, 2:1, as well as the ability to use each channel independently, or link them for stereo usage. Switches for the Thrust circuit give you frequency-dependent sidechain control, and the D-S feature provides a de-essing ability, also for use with a sidechain. Add the sonic texture of tube with the unmistakable sound of API with the API Select T25 compressor.
