I´ll borrow a API in 2 weeks and test both together.
Thanks for the hint.
2500/STC 8 combo here and I'm in heaven.

Also have a 5500/Clariphonic. The amount of versatility between these 4 boxes is incredible for tracking and mixing.

Up next is a UBK fatso...

Seems like it. We went through it on the buss tonight, the most gluey sounding thing I have ever heard. The tone seems perfect for the style of music I mostly make. Will report back as we use it more but so far the sound is incredible.

Yea the 2500 is by far my most favorite piece of outboard gear period. Welcome to the club!

Just picked up a 2500 last month and think it's a great piece of gear. Some great options at hand with it.

Here for the gear
 

I'm a huge fan of the 2500 in a mastering set up, especially using "MED" thrust mode to catch any nasty peaks that may pop up occasionally.

The tone of this box is just something else...some pieces of gear I just feel a connection with the moment I use them, and the 2500 is one of them.

Mixed at a studio on the weekend brought mine along
squashed the drum buss into oblivion .
Think the Troggs or THEM "here comes the night"
but as it destroyed the toms the bell on the ride rang like iron.
an amazing efx box as well,
I always have used it in my mastering setup
and a little can go a long way,
but for this pushing it out of control was the best thing for the song.
2500 of pure fun.
