API has commissioned a 16-channel 1608-II mixing console at RPM Music Studio in Rancho Cordova, California.

RPM‘API has a rich history with having recorded some of the greatest rock-n-roll and country albums and it’s American made,’ says studio co-founder Buzz Raley. ‘API consoles are a game changer compared to the competition.’

RPM Music Group was founded in 2017 by Raley and Jeff Matej, who have both been in the music industry in the Bay Area since the 1980s. With decades of music knowledge and experience, and shared passion for recording, Raley and Matej realized that they would make a fantastic team and became business partners. Hundreds of hours were spent on not only building the studio but also researching the best possible equipment. Raley and Matej chose the API 1608-II as their studio’s centrepiece, with the purchase made through by Vintage King.

‘API has a rich history with having recorded some of the greatest Rock & Roll and Country albums and it’s American made,’ says Raley. ‘API consoles are a game changer compared to the competition.’

‘We love the stereo aux addition. The EQ’s and preamps give you that API sound on every channel,’ adds Matej. ‘It is a dream. We wanted that API punch and the 1608-II makes our left speaker hit like Sugar Ray and our right uppercut like Tyson.’

Raley and Matej already plan on adding an expander to their 1608-II console.
