By PSW Staff • October 10, 2012 Elijah Gudroe, a student at New England School of Communications (NESCOM) enjoys the second API 1608 console purchased by the school. The New England School of Communications (NESCOM) is a private institution in Bangor, Maine that instructs over 500 undergraduates in the technically-demanding fields of audio engineering, Internet communications, video production, journalism, marketing communications, and broadcasting. In order to fulfill the needs of its growing audio engineering focus, NESCOM recently installed a second thirty-two channel API 1608 small-frame console at its facility, which already includes a large-format API Vision console, as well as the school’s original API 1608. The new console shipped with fader automation and will be used for instruction and hands-on, project-based education in the third audio mixing course. “Our experience with the API Vision console and our first API 1608 demonstrated that the API products are rock-solid reliable and of the highest audio quality,” explained Wells Gordon, NESCOM audio media specialist and lab instructor for multi-track recording/production, which uses the school’s first API 1608. “The students use these consoles day-in and day-out, and we never have problems with them. “And with technology going in so many different directions these days, it is a service to our students to train them on a benchmark of audio quality. The API 1608 clearly meets that mark.” In addition to its craftsmanship and fidelity, both courses make extensive use of the API 1608’s comprehensive routing and signal processing facilities.
