APRIL 2018; JESSUP, MARYLAND: API is
pleased to announce the order of the next Legacy AXS recording console for the
European market. The new 15IPS Studios
in Croatia will be taking delivery of a 32 channel AXS console, which will be
displayed at the Musikmesse exhibit in Frankfurt, Germany and shipped to the
new facility in July. This is the thirteenth AXS to be delivered since the
product's launch approximately one year ago.
With an expanded and powerful feature set, the new AXS console continues API's
commitment to an all-analog signal path. Console frames range from 32 to 80
channels, with each channel offering dual input capability and access to two
API 200 Series module slots.
One of the many new aspects of the AXS design
is a return to the traditional 1.5 inch module width standard, which allows for
the use of API 500 Series Equalizers on a per-channel basis. AXS consoles also
feature a complete Center Section which includes six Automated Stereo Effects Returns
with motorized faders, 5.1 Surround Monitoring and a built-in 2500 Stereo Bus
Compressor, along with onboard or remote patch bay facilities. A DAW/Producer's
Desk is one of many customizable options available.
Previous deliveries include Made In
Memphis Entertainment in Memphis, TN and the all new Studio Tanta, the first new studio construction in Tokyo in many
“The AXS builds on the success of the Legacy Series consoles with a fantastic
set of features and the finest moving fader automation system we’ve ever
supplied,” says API Sales Director Dan Zimbelman. “We could not be more excited to be a part of
the new 15IPS Studios, overlooking
the sea in Split, Croatia. With the API
console, it’s sure to become a leading destination studio in this part of the
Director and recording Engineer of 15IPS
Studios, Borko Kovac, says,
"We made the choice for the API Legacy AXS console because of the
character of the sound; the great preamps, equalizers, compressors and the 28dB
of headroom. API was capable of customizing the desk to our specific needs
and wishes, and ES Pro Audio worked hard to make our budget work. Combined with
our living accommodations and a spectacular view of the coast from the studios,
API and the AXS was only a dream, but now has become a reality."
