MIAMI, FLORIDA: Professional analog audio gear manufacturer API has just shipped a 16-channel 1608 to a new premier recording facility in Miami-Studio 26. According to the facility’s staff, the console provides exactly the kind of sound that they were looking for.

“After looking at all of the other options on the market, we decided to go with the API 1608,” said PJ McGinnis, Studio 26′s manager and main engineer. “I really love the vintage look and sound of the 1608, but I also love that it offers new, modern features that make today’s recording process quicker and more flexible than a vintage console. The 1608 seemed to fit perfectly with the type of projects that will be worked on at Studio 26,” said McGinnis.

The studio’s first project is for up-and-coming singer-songwriter Cris Cab’s debut album. Cab, who is just more

JESSUP, MARYLAND – MARCH 2011: Working on a follow-up album to its 2009 debut, rock and roll super group Chickenfoot has recently finished recording new tracks on a 16-channel API 1608. The band, comprised of Sammy Hagar (Van Halen), Michael Anthony (Van Halen), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and solo musician Joe Satriani, worked at Hagar’s Red Rocker Sound studio – an annex to the lead singer’s house that was once a rehearsal space. According to veteran recording and mixing engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Guns ‘N Roses, Metallica), the 1608 played a pivotal role in capturing Chickenfoot’s music.

“I absolutely love the sound of the 1608,” said Fraser. “It’s classic API. The 1608 shares the reliability of other API gear. In fact, it works so well and so transparently that I seldom had to think about the mechanics of what I was doing on the board. It was more

GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING ENGINEER RICH BREEN USES METRIC HALO ULN-8 INTERFACE ON NEW YELLOWJACKETS RECORDING

rich_breen.JPG

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA – MARCH 2011: Rich Breen’s quick and early ascension to the upper strata of professional recording a quarter-century ago was not owing to a flashy style or a voguish sound, but rather a well-considered, well-rounded approach to sound recording that was, and continues to be, in equal measures scientific and artistic. He holds a degree in electrical engineering and has studied music, a synergism that has contributed to his roster of clients and recordings that include the Yellowjackets, Charlie Haden, Dianne Reeves, Herbie Hancock, Norah Jones, members of the Rolling Stones, and Ramsey Lewis. Breen has been nominated for the Non-Classical Engineering Grammy, and dozens of his recordings have been nominated or won Grammy Awards in various categories over the years. Last year he won a Latin Grammy for the Ivan Lins/Metropolis Orchestra Recording. In recent years, Breen has become more

JUPITER GETS PINSTRIPES

EDINA, MINNESOTA – MARCH 2011: Pinstripes delivers to its patrons the unique combination of superb Italian-American fare, stately lanes of bowling, bocce courts, and banquet and party space for up to six-hundred guests. Until recently, only the denizens of suburban Chicago enjoyed Pinstripes in its two locations, but success spurred the owners to open a third location in Edina, Minnesota, just past the Minneapolis city limit. GMK Integrated Systems (Lombard, Illinois) designed and installed the audio systems in all three locations, turning, in the newest location, to Symetrix’ recently-introduced, “zero learning curve” Jupiter hardware and “app-based” software for system processing in the banquet rooms.

The audio systems in the older Pinstripes locations worked well enough, but when GMK system designer Chris King heard about Symetrix’ new Jupiter series, the functional fit seemed perfect, despite Jupiter’s lower cost. Unique in the industry, the Symetrix Jupiter hardware operates with software “apps” more
