New York (September 8, 2009)–API will be celebrating its 40th birthday at this year’s AES show in New York City, with a massive party at the Theater District’s famed Roseland Ballroom on Saturday, October 10th at 7:30pm.
Food, drinks, live entertainment and guest appearances from celebrities (of every vintage and from both sides of the console!) will be onhand for the event. A limited number of laminate invitations are available; to secure your laminate, e-mail Angel Thompson (email@example.com), who will put your name on the API party guest list. Laminates can be picked up during the AES show by visiting API booth #355.
“We have a lot to celebrate,” emphasized mix-engineer-cum-president Larry Droppa. “Forty years is a long time, and we’re planning a party worthy of such a significant milestone. Having the party at the Roseland Ballroom is significant in itself. It’s been host to the Stones, Paul McCartney, the Grateful Dead, and countless other great bands. The idea is to have an event that commemorates API’s fortieth and remembers the many friends we’ve met along the way. Stop by our booth for your invitation!”
Four decades into its history, API remains noted for its design and manufacture of analog gear, including the Legacy console, the Vision surround-sound console, the small-frame 1608 console, and racks and racks (and lunchboxes and lunchboxes) full of outboard processors that use the same discrete topology and famed op-amps that made API the hot new thing way back in 1969
