1608-recorded 'Wasting Light' wins Best Rock Album

This year's Grammy Awards saw a major API presence. The Foo Fighters' newest album, "Wasting Light," which was recorded and mixed entirely on an API 1608 console, took home five awards, including Best Rock Album, Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for "White Limo," Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for "Walk," and Best Long Form Music Video for "Foo Fighters: Back and Forth." Frontman Dave Grohl gave a nod to the all-analog approach in his acceptance speech for Best Rock Performance, saying the award "shows that the human element of making music is what's really important."

API is honored to be an element of music-making art.
