API recently got a visit from the esteemed Frank Wells. Having formerly served as the President of AES, Mr. Wells is now the Editor of WorshipAVL and a contributor to Pro Audio Asia and Pro Audio MEA. He has been an AES member since 1992 and served on several boards within the organization. He also previously edited Pro Audio Review, Pro Sound News, and Audio Media, and held chief engineering positions with various facilities.
"While we get to visit with the API team and check out their iconic and expanding product line at various events around the world, there's no substitute for a chance to meet up at the place where API hardware is conceived and produced," said Mr. Wells.
"At first, I thought my timing might just be fortunate, as there were consoles being assembled at every turn. Subsequent conversations revealed that it was not just happenstance; API's business is healthy and thriving. That's good news for the industry and for analog fans world-wide. The API team is understandably proud of their continued success. Hearing past and present customer stories and reverently touching the vintage API console that was the core of the late, great Les Paul's studio, to seeing the row of completed 'The Box' desks, a trio of Legacy AXS consoles in various stages of assembly and several in-progress 1608s, I came away with confidence that Big Iron Audio is alive and well, and in good hands."
We'd like to thank Frank Wells for his visit to API, kind words, and his countless contributions to the pro audio industry.
