- Faithful to the original API circuit designs
- Popular for its remarkable versatility
- 500 Series format
For those of us who can't afford an original API console or simply don't have that kind of space, the API 512c is a gift. This single-channel mic preamp was faithfully designed to deliver the same distinct sound, at a price and in a format that makes sense for today's studios. The traditional fully discrete API circuit design is here, along with the famous API 2520 Op-amp. The API 512c also offers high headroom, with 65dB of gain on the mic preamp and 50dB on the line/instrument side.
Popular for its remarkable versatility
The API 512c is possibly most noted for its versatility, just like the front end of the original API consoles that somehow sounded incredible no matter the application. You can get a huge, open vocal sound with the 512c, or use it for a certain "pop" on just about any source imaginable...cymbals, piano, acoustic guitar. It plays nicely with nearly any mic too. You'll hear the SM57 open up a bit. Or, pair it with your prized large-diaphragm condenser and notice all the details you love, with just the right of complementing color. The bottom line is, you really can't go wrong.
500 Series format
API truly pioneered the 500 Series format, finding a way to make their legendary sound available on a piece-by-piece basis to meet your specific needs. Within the format, the API 512c is a staple, an indispensable preamp for the vintage-minded studio with modern needs.
