Sound Magic has released Dynamic9:Blue25, which they tell us is an API 2500 Bus Compressor Emulation plugin for macOS and Windows. Here's the details in their own words...
Dynamic9 is a series dynamic processing unit modelled from vintage units. By using the latest Black Box Modelling technology, Dynamic9 series can offer an affordable price for the vintage sound. If you want a vintage unit sound, Dynamic9 series has an unbeatable advantage in performance/cost efficiency.
Blue25 is modeled from a API 2500 Master Bus Compressor unit. It is a high-end analog compressor that's designed for use on the mix bus of a mixing console or in mastering applications. It's a stereo compressor that provides a range of compression settings, including hard/soft knee compression, variable attack and release times, and adjustable threshold and ratio controls.
The API 2500 is known for its ability to add warmth, punch, and character to a mix, while also controlling dynamics in a transparent way. It has a unique "thrust" control that adds low-end punch and tightens up the mix, and a "mix" control that allows you to blend the compressed and uncompressed signals together.
