API THE BOX Project Recording and Mixing Console

SPECIAL ORDER ITEM: non-cancelable and non-returnable

Building on API's rich heritage of extremely high-quality recording consoles, THE BOX is a small-format recording/mixing console designed for professional project studios, home studios, and production facilities of all kinds. Optimized for the digital era, THE BOX handles all the functions needed for production not provided by most DAWs, including mic preamps, input signal processing, high-quality mix bus, cue sends with talkback, monitor control, and more, without the redundant capacities of larger consoles. Most importantly, THE BOX provides the legendary "all discrete" API sound in an efficient, cost-effective package.

What makes the BOX such a great value? While there are many answers to this question the simplest way to address it is to look at The BOX’s components.

Each BOX begins with four all API input channels-a number carefully chosen to match much of today’s workflow. The BOX also features 22 summing inputs. These flow into a professional and comprehensive center section. The entire console is completed with a stereo bus compressor which—importantly—can be assigned either to the mix output or any of the input channels. The result is a full-featured, highly flexible and totally professional tool that features the same API sound you would find in any of our other consoles: from the 1608 all the way up to a 96-channel Vision. Big sound, big value, small footprint.

The BOX has an outstanding Summing Section.  All 16 channels use the same circuit board layout and component selection as API's complete lineup of large format consoles.  This means the summing buss is every bit as exceptional as the Legacy Plus and Vision, bringing that huge sound into smaller spaces.  Each channel has 100mm long throw faders to mix on, or if you need, you can use the 0dB button placed at the top of each channel.  The will bypass the BOX manual fader, and send the summed mix to the program buss at 0dB.  Also, every channel includes:

  • balanced insert with switch
  • 2 mono aux sends
  • 1 stereo aux/cue send
  • pan-pot
  • program buss assignment
  • solo
  • solo safe

...all of which combine to create the BOX's comprehensive summing mixer.
