API unveils 1608-II Special Edition

In celebration of its 15th anniversary, API has released a commemorative edition of the 1608 console. The 1608-II Special Edition console features the vintage style cream colour worn by numerous iconic API consoles, and is accented with blonde maple side panels, bolster and meter bridge trim. Each console is also loaded with matching API 550A and 560 EQ modules and is equipped with API’s Final Touch Automation.

“We’re making a limited number of the Special Edition consoles with both a nod to the past, and a view to the future,” said API President Larry Droppa. “With hundreds of 1608s installed in facilities around the world, this is a fun way to celebrate how much impact the 1608 continues to have on the industry, and also how API is honoured to play such a major role in audio for the past 55 years.”

“Special Edition consoles will begin shipping this month and we’re slotting them into production wherever we have room,” added Richard Josephs, API’s production director. “It’s a beautiful console and a pleasure to build. We expect to have them all delivered by the end of this year.”
