API 1608 II
The API 1608 II is an high-quality 16 channel analogue recording and mixing console, with 5.1 monitoring. Following the introduction of the 1608 in 2008, API delivered over 600 consoles and expanders to discerning audio professionals throughout the world. New and based on the incredible success of the original, API proudly announces the 1608-II.
Equipped with an updated feature set and debuting API's new cross-platform Final Touch automation system, the 1608-II continues API's rich legacy of crafting the world's highest-quality analog recording consoles. Adding valuable features for today's Engineers, Producers and Musicians, the 1608-II provides the powerful reliability and the incredible API sound that has characterized API products for nearly 50 years.
Derived from API's Vision Automation System used extensively in the Vision, Legacy Plus and AXS consoles, API now offers optional Final Touch fader automation for the 1608-II console. Final Touch automation combines system reliability, user flexibility and operational simplicity and offers a host of features found only in the most expensive and sophisticated console automation systems typically costing many times more. Consoles can be factory-fitted with Final Touch automation prior to delivery, and existing 1608-II consoles can be retrofitted with Final Touch automation.
