San Antonio, TX (November 14, 2014)—One year on from installing a 32-channel API 1608 mixing console, Harter Music is using it for “everything from stripped-down ukulele tunes to full-on orchestral film score pieces.”

Keith Harter owns the studio, which is located in San Antonio, TX. Along with his team Jonathan Harter (producer and engineer), Jorge Infante (sound engineer) and Joshua Harter (composer), “We work on all kinds of music,” says Keith Harter. “There’s a lot of country, blues, rock, gospel, a good deal of hip-hop and R&B as well. Tejano music is particularly unique to our area, so we work with lots of artists in that genre.”

The music that the Harters produce for on-camera work had a lot to do with their decision to purchase and install a 1608: “Writing and recording music for commercials, television and movies is a large part of our business, and now the 1608 gets used for all our commercial music.”

Before the 1608 made its debut, the studio also boasted a 2500 stereo compressor, a 3124 mic pre, and a six-slot Lunchbox, but the Harters wanted one cohesive unit. Having everything in one place is one of the things that has changed their work the most. “We couldn’t efficiently run all analog sessions before. Now we can record and mix all on tape if we want.”
