API is pleased to announce the commissioning of a 32 channel 1608-II console at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY. The console sale was facilitated by Adam Levin of Washington Music Center. API spoke with Grammy Award winning Audio Engineer and Lecturer for The University of Rochester's Audio and Music Engineering Program Stephen Roessner to hear how the 1608-II has enriched the university's program.
"We chose the API 1608-II for its versatility in the studio and its ability to help students understand signal flow," says Roessner. "Students are engaging with an analog console that has many routing options, adapting their workflow for their needs in and out of the box, and utilizing the impeccable mic pres and EQ's for any style of music they wish to record and mix. Plus the ability to add the API 529 Compressor to the console for mix buss routing is an incredible feature which gives students sonically interesting options while working on the console."
