API Legacy Plus Now Part of U.S. Army Band's Legacy

The U.S. Army has its own Band—and that Band never accepts less than the best. That's why "Pershing's Own", named after the General who founded it, recently enlisted a 48 channel Legacy Plus from API. Pershing's Own was established in 1922 when General Pershing saw that many European armies fighting in the Great War had musicians travel and perform with them to increase the soldiers' morale. Before World War One drew to a close, Pershing's Own was born.

The Army Band's Legacy Plus will clearly be too large for all their international tours; however it will make Pershing's Own sound as good as its reputation. The Army Band records all of their music, and saves it to an archive that is preserved by the Library of Congress. All of the clarity and power of the 260 piece Band's music will be captured through the Legacy console, whether it is used for tracking or mixing. Either way, API is honored to serve alongside of Pershing's Own.
