Dan Zimbelman, API, director of sales, with Full Sail's API Vision console, to be installed in January.
Winter Park, FL (December 3, 2012)—Full Sail University update its Studio B in January with a 64-channel API Vision analog surround sound console.
"We considered everything," said Dana Roun, director of audio arts at Full Sail University. "But we were aiming for that boutique, sought-after, no-questions-asked, flat-out great analog sound." Roun and a small party of faculty traveled to Nashville, where they could test-drive each console in close proximity. "We left Nashville sure in our decision that API had the sound we were after," he continued. "When we heard it, it felt unmistakably right."
"API is pleased not only to be chosen to build and supply a custom API Vision console for Full Sail, but also to show this 64-channel console on the floor of the recent AES Show," said Gordon Smart, managing director of API. "This special desk, scheduled for commissioning at Full Sail on January 2, 2013, was unveiled at this past AES convention in San Francisco. It's exciting to welcome one of the most prestigious secondary schools on the planet into the API family!"
Because the API Vision can mix in stereo and surround sound simultaneously, Full Sail will be able to merge it with audio-for-video courses and projects.
