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 footprint of the console is the only thing Fishell finds small about it. When asked what advice he would give to others considering a BOX of their own, Fishell responded: "Brace yourself, you are playing with the big boys now. With API, there should be no such thing as puny-sounding tracks. The built-in compressor is powerful, yet easy to use and makes a difference."
Even though Fishell has only had the BOX installed for a few months, he has already used it to record almost a dozen different artists. Compared to other consoles, Fishell argues that the BOX holds its own: "The BOX has the same 'mojo' and coloration of API's bigger consoles, so I can compete with other pro mix facilities in the comfort of my small apartment. It does a great job...better than mixes that stay in the 'digital box'. Even classical and jazz projects benefit from the 'muscle' that API gear provides."
