API 1608 VENTURES INTO THE CANADIAN NORTH

QUEBEC, CANADA – JUNE 2013: When singer-songwriter Florent Vollant updated his studio, it was a 32-channel API 1608 console that found its home in an interesting place in the far north. Established in 1997, Vollant’s Studio Makusham is located in Mani-Utenam, Quebec, Canada, a part of the Innu Reserve, where over 3,000 indigenous people reside.

Florent Vollant’s music history runs deep. He has released three albums in his Innu-language and is well-known in the Inuit community. His Christmas album, Nipaiamianan, received a blessing from Pope John Paul II and the Juno Award for Aboriginal Recording of the Year in 2001. Throughout the years, Studio Makusham was very interested in API gear and finally, in December 2012, they made a major upgrade to the facility, acquiring an automated 1608 console through API’s dealer Studio Economik in Montréal.

“The Makusham home – it is the traditional dance, this is a gathering, a feast, a celebration of the rhythms Teuaikan. I am pleased to invite you to this place of creation to live an experience of freedom, sharing, exchange and respect for the music of the world,” said Vollant of Studio Makusham.

The first endeavor on the console was Vollant’s upcoming album, but the 1608 has also lent its capabilities to Quebec recording artists such as Richard Seguin and many others. “The sound is very pleasant and surprising and the build quality is undeniable,” said Volant. “Thanks to Marc-Andre at Studio Economik for consulting on the deal. We are extremely happy customers!”
