Cary, NC (October 30, 2014)—Pie Man Sound opened just last month in Cary, NC with a new 32-channel API 1608 and has already completed several local projects.
Pie Man was designed and built from the ground up by Wes Lachot, who suggested the API to co-owners Max and Mitch Dancik. “I visited various studios,” said Mitch Dancik, “including Manifold, and my ears said it was worth it. Another important consideration was reliability and maintenance. My friend Neil Steingart was an engineer at the Record Plant in NYC and he always spoke about the indestructible API console on their mobile studio truck.”
Dancik said the studio is already booked solid through the year with musicians from a variety of genres anxious to record. Among others, the studio is looking forward to sessions with a young jazz/rock band working on its debut album, a quartet of Mexican classical guitarists, and a quartet of classical sax players. Mitch believes the 1608 has been a huge part of Pie Man’s early success: “My standard setup allows me to switch from record to mix mode instantly. In a ‘mix as you go’ world, this capability is critical, and a very good reason for 1608 users to consider that extra 16 tracks.”
