API

API

API, or Automated Processes Inc are one of the longest established names in the pro audio industry.  Started in 1968, API became well known for the legendary 2520 amplifier, the design of which went on to be the core of all API products.  The clarity and high quality sound of the 2520 amp meant that when they were eventually incorporated into desks, they quickly became the industry standard broadcast consoles for high profile radio and TV networks, as well as the number one choice for professional recording studios.


The modular design on which API have built their success in recent years was actually pioneered in 1969.  The original consoles were all modular which meant that maintenance was much easier than previous designs as owners could simply remove individual sections and send them off for repair without the entire desk being out of action.  This modular system has been reborn in the 500 series.  This series not only made API quality hardware available to the masses at a lower cost but in fact set a new format standard for the industry which many manufacturers since have made compatible hardware for.


API still continues to make outstanding audio hardware today.  From microphone preamps like the 512c and the rackmountable A2D with its digital outputs, to compressors like the 2500 stereo compressor which again uses the 2520 op amp and of course consoles like the 1608 which pay homage to API’s routes.  If you’re looking for high quality audio and outstanding stability, API is the brand for you.
