An API Vision console will
soon reside in the Jerome
L. Greene Performance Space,
hidden behind these placards.New York, NY (April 13, 2009)–Vintage King Audio had a hand in the selection of two new API Vision console at WNYC Radio, which will open the doors of its new street-level public space, The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space, on Tuesday, April 28.
Having relocated for the first time in 85 years, the nation’s largest public radio station consulted with Vintage King Audio, the world’s largest dealer of vintage and high-end recording equipment, when it came time to select the main consoles for both The Greene Space and WNYC’s music studio in its new Hudson Square facilities.
The technical staff at WNYC, led by CTO Steve Shultis, turned to Vintage King’s Peter Kehoe who handles east coast sales for the company. “WNYC broadcasts a vast spectrum of content, from traditional news programming to live music performances, so they require a high quality console to meet on-air and mixing demands,” says Kehoe. “We narrowed the selection down to three choices based on sound quality, reliability and redundancy. After demo-ing the consoles, the API Vision was a logical choice. With three stereo buses, 24 main buses and their legendary EQ and dynamics processors inserted on every channel, the console is equipped to seamlessly segue between interviews and on-air performances, ranging from intimate acoustic artists to the rich, full sound of an eight-piece jazz band.”
The Greene Space will feature a number of ongoing signature initiatives, including live radio shows; The GreeneWorks Commissioning Series, which will invite the city’s artists to use the space as a unique multimedia laboratory; and “A New Theater of Sound,” through which The Greene Space will collaborate with theater groups to re-imagine audio theater for the 21st century.
