    Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua, NY is expanding their studio. Professor Robert Potter, the recording studio manager/technical specialist, says they couldn’t have done it without API. The faculty at Finger Lakes selected the API Vision console to “best outfit” the studio. “What we didn’t need was another large format heartbreak with a bunch of knobs and faders,” Potter stated. “We decided on the Vision because it’s easy to operate, with a kind of smooth sonic signature that makes folks… View this story

    South Korean distributor MI Corporation’s most recent sale for API is a landmark deal, with the two 1608s marking the first two colleges in the country to install API consoles. The first console of this double-hitter was sold to Kwangwoon University in Seoul, where the 16-channel 1608 is used in the Practical Music department, which is designed to give students hands-on experience that will translate to important skills in the work force. Kwangwoon was founded in 1934, during the “dawn… View this story

    Northern Sky Music on London, run by Grammy-nominated songwriter and music producer Steve Robson, is among the first studios in the U.K. to add an API BOX console. The BOX made its debut at the AES show in New York in 2013, where Howard Jones of London’s Source Distribution couldn’t wait to bring it back home. “We had a call pretty much the moment the first BOX landed in the U.K., saying that Steve wanted a demo right away,” Jones… View this story

    The API 1608 analog console at the center of The Blackbird Academy’s 30-seat classroom has scarcely been idle since the school opened its doors in 2013. The academy, an extension of the top-flight, multi-room Blackbird Studio in Nashville, is owned and operated by recording engineer John McBride and his wife, country music superstar Martina McBride. Students in the program learn the basics of pro audio sound quality and signal flow using the classroom’s 1608, and then apply that knowledge in… View this story

    Harter Music, a thriving studio in San Antonio, has been working on a 32-channel API 1608 console for almost a year with impressive results. Keith Harter owns the studio, and along with his team Jonathan Harter (producer and engineer), Jorge Infante (engineer) and Joshua Harter (composer), has carved a permanent place in the “diverse culture involved with Texas music,” including country, blues, rock, gospel, Tejano, and a good deal of hip-hop and R&B as well. In addition to recording other… View this story

    Assistant Professor John Fishell teaches music media and production at Ball State University in Indiana, but enjoys recording from his home. In order to get a large format sound in the small space, Fishell turned to Vintage King and the BOX console from API. The BOX was the perfect size for Fishell’s small footprint requirement, considering his entire studio is located in the second bedroom of his apartment. However, the footprint of the console is the only thing he finds… View this story

    Pie Man Sound opened last month in Cary, NC, – co-owners Max and Mitch Dancik were so eager to start using their 32-channel API 1608 that it’s already been used to record several local projects. Mitch said the studio is already booked solid through the year with musicians from a variety of genres anxious to record. Among others, the studio is looking forward to sessions with a young jazz/rock band working on their debut album, a quartet of Mexican classical… View this story

    Panoramic House, a personal recording studio owned by John Baccigaluppi and Bobby Lurie that’s located on the western Marin coast north of San Francisco, now incorporates Baccigaluppi’s recently-expanded API 1608 console. The duo, who own and operate studios on both the east and west coasts (The Dock in Sacramento, CA and Mavericks in NYC), renovated the historic 1960s structure, which was built entirely from recycled architectural materials salvaged from the Bay Area. Now, Panoramic House is celebrating its first year… View this story
