API 1608-II Recording and Mixing consoleAPI has introduced the 1608-II Recording and Mixing console, ‘adding new and powerful features to the already hugely successful 1608 console, and designed to continue API’s tradition of crafting the world’s most sought-after analogue recording consoles’.

Since the introduction of the 1608 in 2008, API has delivered more than 600 consoles and expanders throughout the world. Given the success of the original 1608, API’s Engineering team focused much of their efforts on making the 1608-II more intuitive to use, including a layout upgrade to the Auxiliary Masters, the inclusion of 4 automatable Stereo Returns, and a revamp of the Control Room section of the console to provide even smoother and easier workflow.

‘Also new to the 1608-II is API’s optional cross-platform Final Touch automation system,’ says API Director of Engineering Todd Humora. ‘Final Touch is a step up from the automation system that was offered with the original 1608. Not only is it equipped with an easy-to-navigate touchscreen, but moving forward, Final Touch mixes can also be shared among API consoles that feature Final Touch. For example, now you can record tracks on a 1608-II console and Final Touch allows you to mix those tracks on a Legacy AXS or Vision console. This is a major step in convenience that Producers, Engineers and Mixers have been asking for.’
