November 2017; Houston, TX:
API has just completed the commissioning of a 32 channel AXS console at Wire Road Studios in Houston, TX. Prior to its commissioning, Wire Road's AXS was displayed in API's booth at the AES Show in October.
James Kelley, Owner and President of Wire Road Studios, said, "We have been considering a large format console for Studio A for some time. The flexibility of the new Legacy AXS coupled with API's history drove our decision. Many of our clients have already expressed excitement about bringing the API sound to our facility and we believe the AXS will allow us to take another step in building national recognition for Wire Road Studios."
Wire Road Studios, designed by the renowned Russ Berger Design Group, opened its doors in 2011 and was recognized by Mix magazine as one of the top new studios placed into service that year. Since then, Wire Road has garnished many accolades, including two RIAA Platinum Records, one RIAA Gold Record, and one Billboard Gold Record. Other recognitions include the recording of a Grammy award-winning song, as well as multiple Gold & Silver "Addy" awards for its audio production work.
