In the August issue of Mix magazine, Engineer Ray Kennedy discusses tracking Steve Earle's new record So You Wannabe an Outlaw with API.
"Everything was recorded through an API console—all the API preamps in the hybrid API/Neve they have at Arlyn [Studios in Austin, TX]," says Kennedy. "I recorded through the API and monitored through the Neve. I like the toughness and punchiness of an API console, and I use a lot of API equipment in my studio."
So You Wannabe an Outlaw joins an impressive list of recent albums recorded on API gear, including Sonny Landreth's Recorded Live in Lafayette, Mýa's Grammy-nominated Smoove Jones, and Miranda Lambert's The Weight of These Wings, among others.
