The Box gives you four input channels for recording. Channels 1 and 2 have preamps, filters, 55A EQ, inserts, assignable compression and output routing. Channels 3 and 4 have the same features plus additional flexibility with 500 Series slots in place of the onboard EQ. With its 16 dedicated summing channels and four input channels, The Box makes mixing easier than ever before. All channels features a fader, mute, pan pot, program bus assignment, insert, solo, solo safe and aux-cue sends for added control over your audio.
The extensive master section gives you control functions for program bus inserts and external inputs, aux and cue masters, solo master, VU meter, talkback plus a monitor section that supports two stereo speak systems and headphones. Also included in The Box is two API 527 compressors for the master section that are fully assignable to the input channels you are recording.
API Audio Consoles
In 1968, Automated Processes Inc. began building quality consoles for broadcast applications. Soon, the company's products found favor with recording studios, and a string of industry-leading advancements (including computerised console automation, the first VCA, and more) followed. API produced the 2520 amplifier, one of the most famous op-amps in the recording industry, and their consoles and products found homes in such iconic studio facilities as The Hit Factory, Record Plant, Ocean Way, and Sunset Sound, among others. In fact, there are over 700 classic API consoles around the globe - many of which are still in use. And the company certainly isn't resting on its laurels; today's API products give you the same unbeatable combination of utility, innovation, and great sound.
