    Dutch recording artist and member of the band “The Common Linnets” Ilse Delange, and her producer JB Meijers, spoke with API recently about their console and the effect it’s had on their work. Meijers commented: “The 1608 is ruling the Dutch charts. Our room is designed so that if we have a great idea, we can immediately track it. The API makes it possible to skip the laptop/bedroom phase.” Delange first saw a 1608 in Nashville’s Blackbird Studio, and sold… View this story

    Oakland, California’s 25th Street Recording opened their doors with an all-discrete, fully-analog, 64-channel API Vision Console six years ago. Today, the console is still keeping 25th Street booked and busy. Among those who have called the studio home are all-star producer Joe Chiccarelli, when he is in town, ‘80s icon Sheila E., Norteño mega-band Los Tigres Del Norte, and guitar hero Joe Satriani. Twenty-fifth Street draws in high-profile clients with the help of the well-earned reputation and versatile capabilities of… View this story

    Carl Lie, a mixer and producer in Manhattan, New York, was looking for a small-footprint solution to his big-picture problem: he wasn’t enjoying his work the way he used to. That all changed last summer when he added an API BOX console to his home studio. Immediately, Lie began welcoming artists with problems of their own into his workspace again, and was comfortable offering a variety of solutions. Lie says the studio can now do anything from mixing an entire… View this story

    Grant Goddard is not new to the music industry, but his studio “Bikini Atoll Sound” recently got its first bit of API gear. In addition to owning Bikini Atoll, Goddard is also a professional sound designer. He saw a 1608 installed in his studio this spring, and he’s already looking forward to expanding it. “The 1608 allows for better recordings, warmer sound, bigger, fuller mixes, and smoother work flow. I’m planning on more modules, another 16-channel chassis, and plan to… View this story

    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
