API president Larry Droppa recently traveled to Los Angeles to congratulate film and television composer William Anderson on his purchase of the 100th API 1608 console, delivered just over two years after John McBride's Blackbird Studio in Nashville purchased serial number 001.
Anderson, owner of Anderson Scores, is a full-time film and television composer with over 200 projects to his name. "The API 1608 was a pretty major purchase for me," said Anderson. "When I had everything in place and lined up, I put in a CD and was totally blown away. I had goose bumps and had to sit down. It was like there had been moving blankets all around my speakers and the 1608 cleared them away. The API sound is huge, open, and clear. The depth and imaging are precise and beautiful.
"In about thirty seconds, any lingering doubts I might have had about my investment in the 1608 vanished completely."
