Api 525

Ok, so these babies are not 'flavor of the month' but more staples in many studios through history.
I would love to know who is using them and what particular uses? Any stereo uses? Tracking what? Mixing what? Finally, why do you like these over other comps for the applications?
Thanks!!

I have a pair and love them! Just got them sent in for servicing (vu meter bulb and one meter was getting stuck) in the week they have been gone I missed them in my last mix. For vocals they shine, if my sta level doesn't work on the singer (which is rare) then my 525 works instantly. Also works on bass and percs. Don't like them at all on bus duty though. I sometimes track w them on soft female vocals. But for lead vox they rock. I think it's my fav 500 series comp for vox and more. Don't like the deeess feature on it. If you haven't tried one I strongly suggest u try one! You won't regret it. My fave vox setting is both buttons in!
GL!!!!

I can only say...if Paul Wolff Designed the unit, I doubt it's going to sound in any way not useful, a mean it's API/Tonelux and a kind of meet in the middle scenario for some products - others are PMI designed so maybe not with Mr. Wolff's touch etc?

In fact I am using tx5c. Sounds great and adds nice sheen with proper "tilt" control!
