Excellent Compressor

By magoon67

from St. Johnsbury, VT

Comments about Waves API 2500 Native Software Download:

If your're heavily into recording and music production of that sort. You definatly should have this compressor. Incredible for stringed instruments like acoustics and even electric guitars if used right. Good for use on room mics and vocals too. Not to big on using it on drums or anything cause it could kill the dynamic of a drum if used wrong or too heavily.

- Brings out picking dynamics of Acoustic guitars. Good for driving an Eq into.

- Could squash too much if not careful.

- Great Comp. for $200

- Very flexable
You can really shape the compressoin to fit your need well.
Compresses well compared to a couple of other Waves compressors I've used.
