RPM Music Group Sets Off with the New 1608-II

RPM Music Studio has installed a 16-channel 1608-II Console at their facility located in Rancho Cordova, CA.

RPM Music Group was founded in 2017 by Buzz Raley and Jeff Matej, who decided to become business partners with their shared decades of music knowledge and experience, and passion for recording.

Ever the perfectionists, Raley and Matej agreed they needed the best equipment and consulted API dealer Vintage King.

RPM chose the API 1608-II as their studio's centerpiece because, as Raley said, "API has a rich history with having recorded some of the greatest Rock & Roll and Country albums and it's American made. API consoles are a game changer compared to the competition."

The studio already plans on adding an expander to their new console.

"We love the stereo aux addition. The EQ's and preamps give you that API sound on every channel," adds Matej. "It is a DREAM. We wanted that API punch and the 1608-II makes our left speaker hit like Sugar Ray and our right uppercut like Tyson."
