Api 225 and Api 527

Api 225 and Api 527

I recently worked on a compressor 225 Api (series 200) and I'm orienting to purchase a Lunch Boxy of modules Api, although I would be oriented to the family 500.
There is a difference in sound between the compressor 225 of the 200 series and the compressor 527 of the 500 series (in addition to the function of limiter)?

API 527

They are compared in this article. According to SOS--Similar in sound and design, with the 527 adding feed back / feed forward, output level and thrust filter. If you liked the 225, there's a good chance you will like the 527, It seems a reasonable guess.

The review is spot on to my experience/ opinion of the --a p i 5 2 7--.

thank you Tone Laborer!
your opinion calms me a lot!
I would like try to the 527 with my hands, but "Api" is a brand that I would include equally in my recording studio. The Lunch Box 500, would be a purchase that I would do anywayy... so if the sound is similar (if not the best on the 527) rasserna me a lot ..
If you have the link of the article?

I linked the article in post 2.

Also, some fan boi wrote a review in the Gearslutz review section. Excellent reading.

Good luck, and remain calm, it's only a compressor.
