The massive process of replacing not one, but two large format analog mixing consoles is beyond its halfway point. The first of two 48 channel API Legacy Plus consoles has successfully replaced the venerable Neve VR at the Gilbert location by completing it’s first week of duties under the hands of CRAS instructors and students. Check out photos of the Gilbert console swap and shots from the first sessions here.
With the first API up and running in Gilbert, attention can be turned to the Tempe facility where another API Legacy Plus has just been rolled into Studio C at that location.Â There’s still much work to do, but in the capable hands of the CRAS techs Jeff Harris and Cory Smith it’s now a matter of days before the first session on the second of these phenominal sounding consoles.
