AUSTIN, TEXAS – APRIL 2011: Established in 1998, The Bubble recording studio has recently joined the ranks of API 1608 owners across the world. Their new 16-channel 1608 analog console is in good company. The Texas studio already owned an array of API equipment, including a 3124+, four 550b discrete 4-band EQs and two 560 graphic EQs.

“We have been using API gear for a long time,” said Alex Lyon, co-owner and co-engineer of The Bubble, “so we knew the sound and build quality were things we liked. We had never heard or seen a 1608, but just knowing it was an API was enough to sell us.”

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – APRIL 2011: Like a self-assured CEO of a Fortune 500 company walking into the PTA meeting at their kid’s school, Tammany Hall recently opened on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and immediately asserted itself as a formidable player in the local music scene. Its owners have created a number of successful clubs in New York City and across the country, most notably Crash Mansion, also on the LES. Tammany Hall delivers a wide selection of excellent beers and mixed drinks across three floors: an upstairs balcony, a prohibition-style basement lounge, and a main room with a generous stage. The owners gutted and rebuilt the interior to distance Tammany Hall from the space’s previous long-term resident, The Annex. Similarly, they hired Paul Bell of PBell Sound to completely redesign the new club’s sound system. Bell relied on Ashly Audio’s new high-power, low-cost KLR-Series amplifies, as well as more
