API Audio is now shipping the API 8200 8-channel mixer, the latest addition to the company’s popular line of rack-mount modular components. The 8200 boasts several unique features that allow the user to employ all of the famed assets of an API console without the size and cost.
The new mixer offers discrete signal paths and provides direct control over level, panning, inserts and sends. The one-rack space, 8-channel 8200 adds the final link in the modular audio chain, completing the circle from recording to mixing using legendary discrete API modules.
Designed for use with the API 7800 master module and API 7600 input modules, the new API 8200 allows DAW users to bypass their internal digital mix bus and use the 8200 as a discrete summing mixer for warm analog sound. Each channel has level pan, two aux sends, solo, mute, and insert. All external audio connections are balanced +4 dBu and the 8200 is configured with industry-standard DB-25 multi-pin connectors for easy integration into existing audio systems.
In addition, the flexible 8200 mixer can be used in a multitude of mix and submix applications including confidence monitoring, live recording, studio recording and mixing and even ADR and Foley monitor playback. Multiple 8200s can be easily linked to create multi-channel operations.
Dan Zimbelman, director of sales for the ATI Group, “The 8200 gives DAW users the best of both worlds – the flexibility of using their digital workstations with the ability to mix to stereo through the 8200s discrete summing signal path, the cleanest, most pristine stereo bus in the world.”
The 8200 modules provide a high-quality discrete API solution for an array of professional audio applications – the possibilities are endless!
