What We Think

An incredibly powerful multi-purpose unit from API/JDK. This box does as much as is humanly possible in a 1U rack space unit while still retaining the character and quality of the ATI console from which it's based. 8 mic pre's, all with compressor/limiters, built in PSU, and a stereo mix bus, just to name a few. Ultraportable, ultracompact, and very reasonably priced.

The extremely versatile 8MX2 rack mount preamp/mixer provides a huge amount of flexibility while fitting into just one rack space. This unit is perfect for all critical digital and analog projects, including at-home and remote recording as well as live broadcast feeds. Boasting +24 db of headroom, the 8MX2's microphone preamplifiers can be driven hard without clipping. This mixer allows engineers to feed the mixbus while simultaneously feeding the direct outputs.

About Manufacturer

It all began with a dream. It was 1968. The company: Automated Processes Inc., formed by men with a vision. Best known for their now legendary "2520 amplifier", this unique amp has been and will continue to be the heart of all API discrete products. It continues to provide reliability and sonic purity unmatched by the competition. The resulting console met the needs of the music, commercial and broadcast industry. API became the leading audio broadcast console manufacturer for radio and television networks and high profile stations. In addition, recording studios, large and small, began using API.....and receiving rave reviews from engineers and producers. There are over 700 API consoles across the nation and around the world, including the three major networks. Over thirty years later, many of these consoles are still in daily use in some of the most prestigious recording and broadcast facilities in the world because, to date, there are few, if any consoles of equal sound quality at a cost-effective price.
