API Debuts The Box – Small-Format Analog Mixer
Automated Processes Inc. (API) has announced The Box, a small-format, project analog console. The Box is specifically designed for audio professionals with project or home studios who require a smaller format console but want that full-blown, large console sound. True to its heritage, The Box features the same circuitry, performance and legendary API sound as the company’s Vision, Legacy Plus and 1608 consoles.
Optimized for the digital era, The Box handles all the functions needed for production not provided by most DAWs, including mic preamps, input signal processing, high-quality mix bus, cue sends with talkback, monitor control, and more, without the redundant capacities of larger consoles. Most importantly, The Box provides the all discrete API sound in an efficient, cost-effective package.
