API 1608-II - 16-channel Recording and Mixing Console (Unloaded) with Automation
API launched their 1608 console in 2008 and proceeded to deliver over 600 consoles and expanders to audio professionals across the planet. Now, the 1608-II ups the ante. With its updated feature set and Final Touch fader automation system, the 1608-II continues API's rich legacy of crafting the world's high-quality professional analog recording consoles. Packed with valuable features for today's engineers, producers, and musicians, the 1608-II provides the legendary reliability and incredible sound that has characterized API products for a half century.

API The Legendary American Console Company
No American console company is more iconic than API. Launched in 1968 by Saul Walker, 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 innovations (including the 500 Series module, the first VCA, computerized console automation, 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, Sunset Sound, and many others. In fact, there are over 700 vintage 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.
