June 2019; Jessup, MD:
Renowned studio designer Wes Lachot has commissioned a custom 32-channel API 2448 console, now available for demo, at his Overdub Lane Recording studio facility in Durham, North Carolina.
In operation since 1983, Overdub Lane Recording has hosted countless sessions for artists such as Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Meat Puppets, Tift Merritt, Alejandro Escovedo, The Mountain Goats, John McLaughlin, and Superchunk among many others. Lachot worked as an Engineer/Producer at Overdub throughout the 80s and 90s before forming his extremely successful studio design and acoustic consulting firm Wes Lachot Design Group.
Lachot previously installed a 48-channel API 1608 console in Overdub's control room, which he expanded from its original 16 channels over time, and with the addition of the 2448, he firmly stands by the API sound.
"We've installed many big name consoles in studios over the years," says Lachot. "But I've always thought that the APIs sounded the best."
