From The Street:

"I tracked all the guitars for "Guitar Nerd," through the API A2D in my home studio. I have a cab isolated in a closet with two mics hardwired to the A2D, then digital out to an Apogee Ensemble, and I run Logic 9 on a Mac Pro.

"The API preamps just sound fantastic on guitars—there's a forward character and a clarity that I just love. I use the 2:1 feature often as well; it's great for adding some extra harmonic saturation to rock guitars.

"Thanks, API!"
