Famed producer, mixer and engineer Joe Chiccarelli is slated to appear for API (Automated Processes Inc.) at a special API JDK Day event. The special showing will feature a Q&A with Chiccarelli as well as a demonstration of his recording and mixing techniques using an API 1608.
“We are so thrilled to have Joe available to appear at this event,” said Larry Droppa, API president. “Getting Joe to explain his recording and mixing techniques in an intimate forum like this is a very rare occurrence, and API is honored to have Joe doing the demo on a 1608. He has been a fan of API gear for many years and has the ability to get the equipment to bring out the best part of an artist’s performance.”
Chiccarelli rose to industry fame as an engineer and producer for acts such as the Counting Crows, The Shins, The Strokes, Jason Mraz, Elton John, The Killers, U2, Beck, My Morning Jacket, Tori Amos, White Stripes, Christina Perri and many others.
The event, a joint presentation sponsored by West LA Music and API, takes place at Westlake Pro (4101 Lankershim Boulevard, North Hollywood) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 24th. API will be raffling off a JDK R22 Channel Compressor at the end of the presentation.
