    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 post

    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 post

    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   Once upon a time, there was no recorded music.  To hear music you needed to go to a live performance. Eventually sheet music was printed and available to buy. If you liked the song, you bought the sheet music … if you were lucky enough to have an instrument and could play you could actually hear the song. The piano (or other musical instrument) was an important part of home entertainment. In the… View this post

The new 1073MPL delivers the same class A sound that BAE preamplifiers are known for, all in a compact and cost effective 500 series package. For equipment manufacturers,… View this post

    You patch in a piece of audio equipment, and there it is: HUM! This annoying sound is a common occurrence in sound systems. Hum is an unwanted 60 Hz tone—50 Hz in Europe—maybe with harmonics. If the harmonics are especially strong, the hum becomes an edgy buzz. Your sound system also might be plagued by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). It’s heard as buzzing, clicks, radio programs, or “hash” in the audio signal. RFI is caused by CB transmitters, computers, lightning,… View this post

    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 post
