The Legacy continues...

Firehouse 12 in New Haven, CT had such a positive experience with its API Legacy console, that when time came to replace it, another API was the obvious choice. A new 32 channel Legacy Plus was commissioned just this month. It was all hands on deck for a team of API technicians, who carefully packaged the console in pieces out of the Maryland factory, and traveled up the east coast to the console's final destination in the Elm City. Firehouse 12 is well known for its contribution to the Connecticut music scene, boasting a recording label, live performances, studio recordings, and its own bar.

 


The 1970's era API 3232 in Ben's Studio

Hunting Down another Platinum-Selling Album with an API 3232

The new album from country music superstar Hunter Hayes was tracked at Ben's Studio in Nashville on its API 3232 console. Coming May 6th, STORYLINE is the latest from this multi-talented 22 year old. Engineered by Tony Daigle and produced by Dann Huff, the first single released is titled 'Invisible'. Hayes performed at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards show on Sunday, April 6th.

And the 'Most Creative 1608 Photo' award goes to...

The crew at Noise Factory Studio in Milan really had to put their heads together for this one. The studio is home to an API 1608 console, and by the looks of it, it seems to have some creative ideas emerging from it. Studio owner Alessio Camagni calls it "A console to lose your head for!" He's seen here, along with the faces of Federico Calvara and Niccolò Fornabaio below.

BOXing out the Competition

The BOX® sales have been booming throughout Europe after a successful showing at Musikmesse in Frankfurt. Caduceus Mastering makes up one of those purchases, becoming the latest studio in Switzerland to seek one out. Geneva-based engineer Ladislav Agabekov, who purchased the BOX through German distributor Erwin Strich of ES-ProAudio, tells us he already has big plans to use his new gear for stem mastering. Lad is currently working with the well-known DJ and producer, Cassy.

Justin Timberlake armed with a suit and tie, and API

Justin Timberlake is making rounds across the globe with his 20/20 tour. We caught up with his performance at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., where we got to watch from front of house. Justin uses a couple of API's 512c mic preamps for vocals. Could that be why he's sold out most of his performances?

Buenos Dias from Sound:Check

We're here in Mexico City for the 2014 Sound:Check Xpo, where the weather has been tremendous, as is the interest in the debut of The BOX. API's Dan Zimbelman and Mark Seman are stationed at the Vari International booth meeting folks from all over Mexico, Central America, and beyond. Pictured are Hugo, Eugenia, and Gustavo from Vari showing off a 1608, along with Dr. Francisco Javier Ortiz of Technologico de Monterrey.
