IN THE MIX GETS INDIA’s FIRST API 1608 ANALOG CONSOLE

in_the_mix.JPG

MUMBAI, INDIA – JANUARY 2011: When considering equipment for his new studio, iconic Indian playback singer Hariharan sought an analog console that would produce a different sound than that of the various small, all-digital studios throughout the region. After researching and testing out several mixing desks, he and his sound engineer/producer KJ Singh decided that In the Mix needed an API 1608.

“We’d used an API Legacy console at Phase One Studios in Toronto to mix Hariharan’s last album, Jab Kabhi Bolna, so we got to appreciate the full API experience then,” said Singh. According to Singh, when the duo finished demo’ing their console options they found that the 1608 delivered the sound needed to set their productions apart from the competition.

“It just had that sound,” said Singh. “Plus, the 1608 has a small footprint, but is very big more

McGILL UNIVERSITY’S SCHULICH SCHOOL OF MUSIC ADDS API VISION CONSOLE

MONTRÉAL, CANADA – JANUARY 2011: With graduates such as Richard King, Jeff Wolpert and John Sorensen, the McGill University Graduate Program in Sound Recording is among the most prestigious audio engineering programs in the world. In fact, the program only admits seven new students each academic year, all of whom must hold bachelor’s degrees in music. Because the program is part of McGill’s Schulich School of Music, its students have always had numerous opportunities to record top-tier musicians and ensembles from many different genres and backgrounds. Now, they will have countless opportunities to do that recording on one of the highest-quality consoles available – a 64-channel API Vision.

“The Schulich School of Music recently completed a new building,” explained Prof. Wieslaw Woszczyk, who founded the recording program in 1979. “We now have three recording studios, four concert hall recording spaces, an ear-training lab, post-production suites and a multichannel audio more

API INTRODUCES THE CHANNEL STRIP

channel_strip.JPG

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

THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S ANEMIC BOWL STADIUM SOUND. DANLEY JERICHO HORNS AND SUBS DELIVER FULL FIDELITY TO BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL FANS

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
