API 1608-II - 16 Channel Console (Unloaded)
API remains at the leading edge of small format analog console design with their newest offering the API 1608-II Console. Expanding on the architecture of their ever popular 1608 console, which helped revolutionize the analog project studio, API has brought out its latest iteration, the Mk II. The 1608-II is a fully analog board that merges a wealth of modern features with the rich history of API console design in the classic 1604 model. All analog, all day long enter a realm that API knows like no other.

The API 1608-II features a single audio path design, perfect for analog tracking, routing and monitoring. Each channel on the 1608-II consists of one signal path for tracking or mixing. The core of each channel is the 548C Channel module, which provides for a variety of functions. The combination of the 16 channels, the 4 Stereo Returns, and the 8 Summing Bus masters provides 32 channels of audio for mixdown via the Program Bus.

The 548C Channel module provides everything you need to track and assign your audio signals. Employing a variation on the classic API 212L mic pre, the preamp section provides the essential tools of 48 V phantom power, polarity reversal, a -20 dB pad, a peak output LED, and up to +55 dB of gain.

The API 1608-II comes equipped with 12x 550A Parametric Equalizers, and 4x 560 Graphic Equalizers. Enjoy the best of both worlds with APIs two flagship EQs to shape your sound any way you want.

The API 1608-II provides a meter bridge with full analog VU metering, in a classic black/red scale on a yellow background for easy visibility. All Input channels have a medium-size VU meter, with the first 8 doubling as meters for the Summing Buses. Over the Master Section, the 8 Auxes & 4 Stereo Returns have their own set of small meters, while the Stereo Program Bus is displayed on the largest pair. All meters are illuminated.

The Master Section of the API 1608-II has a comprehensive set of tools that allow you to control and process your signals for both tracking and mixing. This section houses the controls for the Stereo Returns, Auxiliary Sends, Summing Buses, Solo Bus, Oscillator, Talkback and Control Room monitoring functions.

Key to the processing and color of your sound are the four Stereo Returns located on the 265C module. To maximize the utility of the Stereo Returns, load the 500 Series modules of your choice for compression, limiting and tone shaping of every description. These modules can be used in pairs in conjunction with the Stereo Returns, or as individually patchable processors. Complement the classic tone of the API mic pre/EQ with even more sonic sculpting!
