Oktaven Audio's live room
2018; Mount Vernon, NY: API has sold a 48 channel Legacy AXS console to Oktaven
Audio, a studio in Mount Vernon, NY specializing
in classical, jazz, and acoustic music recording. The AXS console is slated for
installation in Oktaven's Control Room A in September 2018. This
sale was completed with the help of Vintage King's Jason Cropper.
“Oktaven has grown rapidly since we moved into a new, larger space in 2016.
With our ever-increasing volume of work, large-ensemble classical and jazz
tracking sessions in particular, we soon outgrew our old board," says
Oktaven Engineer and Co-Owner Ryan Streber. "Only the AXS perfectly
fulfilled all of our needs for a flexible analog console for tracking and
mixing, with great reliability and serviceability, a familiar and intuitive
work surface for visiting freelance engineers, room to expand, high headroom,
and amazing sonics."
"The API team have been incredible in helping us take this next step, and
we couldn’t be more excited about making this beautiful console the centerpiece
of our control room," Streber adds. "We’re also honored to be only
the second studio in NYC to commission an AXS and hope that it will help us
continue to contribute to the incredibly vibrant and prolific contemporary
music scene in New York.”
