Jessup, Maryland - Nov. 2012:
API, manufacturer of high-end analog processors and consoles, announces that Tónastöđin will serve as its dealer in Iceland and that VGL will serve as its distributor in Chile. Both firms have been supplying their respective regions with professional audio equipment for over twenty years, and both firms are highly visible and respected. The new agreements confirm and solidify API's commitment to satisfying the demand for its unique brand of warm analog processing in every market where professional recordings are made.
Tónastöđin's customers originally made the recommendation that the firm start carrying API gear. "With a total population of only just over 300,000, Iceland is a relatively small market," said Andrés Helgason of Tónastöđin. "So you might say that most, if not all, musicians and audio engineers in Iceland are quite familiar with Tónastöđin. We have great access to the studio world here and are therefore in a good position to promote API." Tónastöđin will begin selling API rack equipment and 500-series modules.
VGL is an audio-visual system integrator, and its audio division specializes in professional, high-end equipment for recording studios, broadcast studios, live sound, and installed sound. "Like our customers, we are passionate about audio and so we have a deep appreciation for their needs," said Daniel Vinagre of VGL. "In addition to our sales team, we have a customer support team that is ready to provide after-sale assistance. That helps to earn customer loyalty and repeat sales. We're excited to work with API because their gear has a unique sound that is full of character and that serves very well in an integrated analog/digital studio." VGL will distribute the entire API line, from the smallest 500-series module to the small-frame 1608 console to the grand API Vision and Legacy consoles.
