JESSUP, MARYLAND – MAY 2011: Proof that analog audio is a powerful force in the digital age, the Foo Fighters’ recent analog effort, Wasting Light, debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart last month. The album, which moved more than 235,000 copies in its first week, was recorded and mixed completely on a 32-channel API 1608 console in frontman Dave Grohl’s untreated garage and spare room. Although many consoles would have fit Grohl’s spacing and input requirements, the API 1608 and its sixteen-channel expander stood out as the perfect mix of uncompromising professionalism, flexible topology and functional size.

While the client demanded the best system available, it also needed to be simple to use and convenient, and the architect was insistent that each room could have no more than a two-gang light outlet. This meant that most lights had to go to lighting panels and keypads, making PCS’ products perfect for this installation. The installer placed 125 WS1D wall switch dimmers, 34 KPLD/R keypad dimmers, and 20 KPCW wall mount keypads, more
