API used the occasion of 135th AES Convention to launch The Box project analogue console, designed for audio professionals with project or home studios who require a smaller format console with a “big console sound.” The Box features the same circuitry, performance and “API sound” as the company’s Vision, Legacy Plus and 1608 consoles. “The Box offers an easy, turnkey solution for recording and mixing,” said API president Larry Droppa. “It’s a great option for people who record a few channels at a time, but demand the warmth and punch that a large API console delivers. In addition to four inputs, full center section control, and 16 channels of API’s famous summing, the icing on the cake is a classic API stereo compressor on the program bus. Now you can truly record and mix… in The Box.” www.apiaudio.com
