July 2019; Jessup, MD:
Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, OH has recently commissioned a new API 1608-II console as the centerpiece of its Recording Arts and Technology program. The console sale was facilitated by official API dealer Vintage King.
David Kennedy, Tri-C's Recording Arts and Technology Program Manager says, "The API 1608-II was selected for our studio classroom for a few reasons. The first reason we chose the 1608-II is the quality of mic preamps, since students do a lot of tracking in the room. Next, the 1608-II's modularity and ability to customize appealed to us, as we have added a few extra processors and have another 500- rack right next to it. Finally, the 1608-II was chosen for the ability to break a mix out of the box. Students use Pro Tools to mix quite often, and this gives them a high quality alternative."
