Another Classic Console in the Making
A classic in the making, the API 1608 has the same clear, punchy, tight and honest sound of its predecessors. However, it’s not just a great “vintage” console in a new box; it’s loaded with future-thinking features not found in older consoles. There are many ways to connect it to a DAW, sufficient headroom to send a full +24dBm RMS signal into DAW inputs, direct inputs on every channel, and +4dBu to +24dBu peak meter threshold settings.
Then marry all of this with API’s legacy, operational efficiency, and famed proportional Q EQ’s and the 1608 provides the best and fastest track to sonic heaven in years.
