August 2018; Jessup, MD:
API is pleased to announce the sale of a 64 channel AXS console to the prestigious Tokyo College of Music in the Toshima area of Tokyo. The AXS will be part of a new studio, designed by Sam Toyoshima. This is the second AXS placed in Japan, with the previous console having been installed at the new Studio Tanta, also in Tokyo. Placement of both of these AXS consoles was facilitated by API's exclusive Japanese Distributor Mix Wave, headed by Mr. Hiro Saika.
Although Tokyo College of Music will be the first academic institution to install an AXS console, it is preceded by a long list of higher education facilities, including Berklee College of Music, New York University, Abbey Road Institute, and Full Sail University, that integrate API's Legacy Plus, Vision, and 1608 consoles into their curriculums.
"We're excited to see how the pro audio community of studios, engineers, and producers in Japan are showing a clear preference for the API tone", says Dan Zimbelman, API Director of Sales. "With two Vision consoles at NHK Tokyo, the new 48 channel AXS at Studio Tanta, many 1608 consoles all over Japan, and now the new Tokyo College of Music order for a 64 channel AXS console, Japan is quickly becoming one of our most significant export markets. Thanks to Mr. Hiro Saika and the entire professional team at Mix Wave."
