Jessup, MD (March 11, 2004)–API Audio recently announced that it’s shipping the new 8200A summing mixer, which integrates API’s 8200 eight-channel line mixer with the functionality of the API 7800 master module into a stand-alone unit. The new one-rack space 8200A is a flexible, self-contained summing mixer designed to introduce the warm sound of API’s legendary discrete analog modules to current digital audio workstations.
The rack-mount API 8200A offers direct control over level, panning, a balanced insert, and two auxiliary sends on each of the eight balanced line input channels, while also providing solo and mute functions. This new 8200A model additionally includes the necessary summing amps for the aux sends, busses and stereo mix bus.
The 8200A is configured with industry-standard DB-25 multi-pin connectors for easy integration into existing audio systems. All external audio connections are balanced +4dBu. In addition to allowing DAW users to bypass their digital audio bus and take advantage of API’s high-quality analog audio circuitry, the flexible 8200A can also be used in a variety of mix and submix applications. Those include studio recording and mixing, live recording, confidence monitoring, and even ADR and Foley monitor playback. Multiple 8200A modules may be linked to satisfy multichannel applications.
