The API 505-DI 500-Series DI Module delivers fat, punchy sound. The DI circuitry the instrument passes through has everything to do with that – you certainly don’t want to degrade your sound right at the input.
In 1968, Automated Processes Inc. began building quality consoles for broadcast applications. Soon, the company’s products found favor with recording studios, and a string of industry-leading advancements (including computerized console automation, the first VCA, and more) followed. API produced the 2520 amplifier, one of the most famous op-amps in the recording industry, and their consoles and products found homes in such iconic studio facilities as Ocean Way, the Record Plant, and Sunset Sound, among others. In fact, there are over 700 classic API consoles around the globe – many of which are still in use. And the company certainly isn’t resting on its laurels; today’s API products give you the same unbeatable combination of utility, innovation, and great sound.
Now you can equip your studio or road rig with the same DI hi-Z input you’ve heard on countless hit records, with all the convenience of the 500 Series format. Equip your 500 Series rack with the API 505-DI 500-Series DI, and get killer direct sounds right from the get-go. Give your basses and synths the classic fat and punchy sound of the API 505 DI.
