From The Street:

"I recorded 'Sonically Speaking' using API pres for all of the instruments. The tones are very warm without being muddy, and the API pres have the perfect color I'm looking for in the mid-to-upper-mid range. The pres' response and ability to capture inflections is truly brilliant. All my harmonics ring through on guitars, and the 512cs are incredibly versatile. When I use it on drums and bass the sound is very punchy, and all articulations and snap that you hear in the live room comes through.

"The API EQs are also brilliant, especially for guitars. I like the 550bs for notching my guitar tones when mixing. I recommend API gear to any serious musician who records albums. Further, API gear can also make a home studio sound pro!"
