API has announced the latest addition to its line of analog consoles: THE BOX project console. They say that THE BOX is specifically designed for audio professionals with project or home studios who require a smaller format console with that "big console sound." True to its heritage, THE BOX features the same circuitry, performance and legendary API sound as the company's highly successful Vision, Legacy Plus and 1608 consoles. The new console debuted to a highly enthusiastic AES show in New York, and is now shipping from the company's factory in Jessup, Maryland.
API President Larry Droppa, told us, "THE BOX offers an easy, turnkey solution for recording and mixing. It's a great option for people who record a few channels at a time, but demand the warmth and punch that a large API console delivers. In addition to four inputs, full center section control, and 16 channels of API's famous summing, the icing on the cake is a classic API stereo compressor on the program bus. Now you can truly record and mix... in THE BOX."
