Canandaigua, NY (April 9, 2015)—Finger Lakes Community College in New York state is expanding its studio facilities with the installation of an API mixing console.
According to Professor Robert Potter, “What we didn’t need was another large-format heartbreak with a bunch of knobs and faders. We decided on the Vision because it’s easy to operate, with a kind of smooth sonic signature that makes folks smile.” Potter is the recording studio manager/technical specialist for Finder Lakes Community College and has worked for the school since 2003.
The console is so new to the program (only having only just been installed) that it hasn’t gotten any exercise yet. However, Potter has high hopes and expectations for it. While comparing the Vision to other options for Finger Lakes, Potter said, “It’s the best of everything—pres, compressors, EQs—all in one complete unit. Choosing the Vision was very much in our best interest.” He also says the Vision is unique “because of the classic sound, of course.”
Potter is so confident in the success of the Vision that he already has a vision of his own, and he’s seeing double: “We don’t have any other API gear currently, but we are hoping to order a 32-channel 1608 for one of the other studios here next semester.”
