My Favorite use of the API 2500 with sound clips.

My Favorite use of the API 2500 with sound clips.

This may be difficult to explain out of context, but I found the API 2500 really useful for a brush kit today. It envelopes the ears in a pillow of smooth snares. It may sound a little overdone, but it definitely works as a nice texture in the context of the song. The dry track has really nice attack, but the in-your-face feel the 2500 gives is perfect.

I've always been fond of the 2500 on drums. Though, I don't recall using it on a brush kit... I'm not surprised it worked well.

Definitely try it out sometime. I always find an excuse to use LOUD Thrust!

Very cool. How much gain reduction is going on and what were you general settings?

About 8db (probably more on peaks) of gain reduction.

Hard knee, LOUD Thrust, Feed Forward. Play with the rest of the settings.
