THE BOX MIXES IN NORWEGIAN HOME STUDIOS THROUGH KAN LYD

SKIEN, NORWAY: Operating out of the home of sound engineer Kjetil Arvesen Nesheim, Kan Lyd is a growing professional project studio for mixing and overdubs. While recording and mixing full productions, Kjetil often travels with his studio gear to record throughout multiple locations. To create the sounds of a big studio through smaller recording spaces, Kan Lyd has commissioned API’s THE BOX console to accommodate the needs of recording artist clients with worldwide audiences.

Kjetil had dreamed of owning a high-end console for years, and was inspired to make an API purchase after listening to vintage American vinyl recordings. He specifically cited Fleetwood Mac’s album Rumors, which was recorded through an API console in 1977. Kjetil contacted API’s Norwegian distributor Prolyd to find a system that would integrate seamlessly with the rest of his gear, and fit the needs of Kan Lyd.

“As soon as I saw the ad for THE BOX, I knew it was the right console for me,” recalls Kjetil. “After I started using it, my mixing became faster and easier, and made my mixes sound more three-dimensional. All instruments blend together perfectly. It sounds bigger, wider, and clearer all at the same time.” Kjetil also appreciates the versatility of THE BOX, and it’s optimization for the digital era. “The idea of having twenty channels of summing in mix-down, built-in preamps, EQs and compressors was very intriguing.”

For mixing purposes, Kjetil had two additional 550B EQs installed. “The first four channels of THE BOX are dedicated to drums: a 550A for kick and snare, and a 550B for toms. I’ve got the compressor strapped to the mix bus at all times. Doing it this way gives me the best of two worlds. It sounds more expensive now.”

On top of working on a voiceover project for a digital guide, the latest album for Christian rock musician Arvid Pettersen is being mixed at Kan Lyd. Kjetil comments that THE BOX has improved his work flow in comparison to his past recording projects. “This is my first experience with API gear, and I love it.”

ABOUT API (AUTOMATED PROCESSES, INC.) Established more than 45 years ago, Automated Processes, Inc. is the leader in analog recording gear with the Vision, Legacy Series, 1608 and THE BOX recording consoles, as well as its classic line of modular signal processing equipment.
