API INTRODUCES THE CHANNEL STRIP

JESSUP, MARYLAND: One of the highlights of the recent AES convention in San Francisco was API’s introduction of its brand-new Channel Strip. The API Channel Strip includes a 512C mic pre, the famous 550a EQ, the 527 compressor and the 325 line driver, all well-known and highly-coveted pieces in their own right, now packaged together. Each processing piece can be switched in or bypassed individually, and a flip switch allows the compressor to be placed after the EQ if desired. Additional features include an insert point, side chain input, multiple metering locations, and the famous API 2520/transformer combination.

“There was a need for a leaner, meaner version of the API 7600 that could serve as a stand-alone unit, with just the right features necessary for a comprehensive audio channel,” said Larry Droppa, API president. “We picked all the more

PROVO, UTAH: Set amid the stunning mountains of Provo, Utah, LaVell Edwards Stadium marks the home turf of the Brigham Young University Cougars. What started as a 30,000-seat bowl in 1964 expanded dramatically over the years and now seats over 64,000 BYU fans, a capacity that is frequently met several times during the regular season. Recently, Salt Lake City-based Poll Sound replaced the stadium’s aging, mid-1990s-era loudspeakers with an array of JH-90 Jericho Horns, Danley Sound Labs’ latest revolutionary offering, bolstered by Danley subwoofers. In contrast to the old system, which, like almost every bowl sound system in the world, was dominated by mid-range, the new Danley Jericho system boasts a hi-fi balance of low end and high end, even 700 feet away!

“There are two main problems that have plagued long-range sound systems for as long as anyone has had the wherewithal to provide sound more
