Dealer’s Notes from API:
One question we answered repeatedly at the
Music Messe was— What makes the BOX such a great value? While there are many
answers to this question the simplest way to address it is to look at The BOX’s
Each BOX begins with four all API input
channels-a number carefully chosen to match much of today’s workflow. The BOX
also features 22 summing inputs. These flow into a professional and
comprehensive center section. The entire console is completed with a stereo bus
compressor which—importantly—can be assigned either to the mix output or any of
the input channels. The result is a full-featured, highly flexible and totally
professional tool that features the same API sound you would find in any of our
other consoles: from the 1608 all the way up to a 96-channel Vision. Big sound,
big value, small footprint. We thought you’d like to know.
CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
“The recording channels on the BOX are tops. I
love the sound of the pres for micing and direct bass. I love the EQ and the
ability to pull one of the compressors into the strip. The BOX is ergonomic and
just plain fun to use. Everything that API added to this unit was done
thoughtfully, completely, and perfectly.” –Carl Lie, Producer, NYC and BOX owner.
“The BOX had everything I was looking for in
one unit, whereas the other options I was considering were all separate pieces.
I also had to take into consideration my small workspace so having everything
to hand on one desk was very appealing. I liked the look of it straight away,
and ran a stem session through the summing section during a demo with Source
Distribution—it sounded great.” –Scott Rosser, Mixer/Engineer (Rihanna, Lady
Gaga, and Mariah Carey), BOX owner.
