SUN VALLEY, IDAHO – APRIL 2010: Legendary rocker and bluesman Steve Miller continues to enjoy a life of recording and touring. Godson to Les Paul, the precocious Miller tapped the artistic veins of the Chicago and New York blues scenes before relocating to San Francisco in the midst of its artistic renaissance, where the Steve Miller Band contributed to the playlist that has become a part of the fabric of modern life. Together with respected engineer Kent Hertz (Godsmack, Julio Iglesias, Gloria Estefan) and eminent producer Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Van Halen), Miller is currently re-recording with the same passion that has attended him his entire life. The trio purchased a 32-channel API 1608 console to contribute the right sound to an otherwise ideal digital workflow.

The new collection will be released on Miller’s new record label, “Space Cowboy Records” which has signed four promising artists. All of the label’s recordings will originate from Miller’s well-appointed personal studio in gorgeous Sun Valley, Idaho.

As soon as the API 1608 arrived, Hertz ran some tracks through flat. “Even with no processing, the sound was instantly punched way up,” he remarked. “That’s what we had been looking for!” For the greatest hits project, the API 1608 acts as a front-end for newly recorded tracks and as a mixer for the tracks that have already been recorded. “For me, the analog/digital hybrid is the Holy Grail,” said Hertz. “I’m fully invested in the digital workflow – instant recall and random access are indispensable. With the sonic contribution of the 1608, we now have all that functionality with a sound that brings us back to our analog roots. It’s the best of both worlds – an inspiring way to work!”

ABOUT API (AUTOMATED PROCESSES, INC.) Automated Processes, Inc. remains the leader in analog recording gear, with the Vision, Legacy Series and 1608 Recording Consoles, as well as its classic line of modular signal processing equipment.
