From The Street:

"I have the API 7600 Channel strip, and there's a problem with it — I CAN'T SOUND BAD!!!! Everything is creamy and smooth, and I sound so good even being out of tune and out of time doesn't distract me from it!

"Honestly, I am now making records instead of demos, and I couldn't be more grateful. I've had 200 songs on internationally released records, and some of them had crappy demos and got lucky, but these new recordings are so much more apt to help the songs hit the intended targets... everything sounds rich and natural... I am not a tech dude, so can't really tell you WHY it's better or exactly what is different, but it all sounds like music to me, and that wasn't the case in the past.

"And I've found that people don't buy a CD or song because of its "specs," they buy cause it speaks to them, and with my new API unit I am speaking LOUD AND CLEAR!!!! Lastly, my reedy tenor doesn't sound thin anymore, so thanks for packing on the pounds!

"Many thanks, many blessings."
