Columbia, MD (November 22, 2004)–Essentially a mini API console in a 19-inch studio rack with roll-around casters, the new DSM (Discrete Summing Mixer) workstation monitor rack is specifically designed to complement any digital audio workstation by providing professional analog summing, mixing, control room switching/monitoring, patchbay facilities, and studio I/O connections.
The DSM is loaded with all API equipment, with 2,520 discrete op amp modules used throughout. The three new API DSM products are the DSM 24, DSM 48 and DSM 72. Each is ready to go work with DAWs that have 24, 48 and 72 output channels, respectively. At the top of the DSM rack is a 2-rack-space meter bridge panel for monitoring the stereo bus level and individual LED trees for the four recording busses and four auxiliary sends.
