API Legacy is a ‘Plus’ for MacEwan University

Posted on: Thursday 6th of December 2018

Canada’s MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta are confident their students will benefit from a benchmark experience, recording with their API  32 channel Legacy Plus console in the university’s brand new recording studio space. Designed by David Kotch of Criterion Acoustics, the studio boasts top notch studio gear, which MacEwan sought in establishing an unparalleled recording education environment.

“As an educational facility, MacEwan wanted to choose a brand that fits with their philosophy of how audio engineering should be taught,” said Kotch. “The school strongly believes in API’s brand. And in the analog console market, we fully believe API is the best out there.”

Paul Johnston, Head of Recording in MacEwan’s Department of Music, also praised the new desk at the centre of the studio. “My favourite part of this entire space is the API console. This particular console was my preference and we worked hard at getting it. We really looked towards Berklee and other music schools as to what exactly that professional kind of recording space would be like.” Berklee College of Music is home to a total of six API consoles, including four Legacy Pluses.

“This kind of space in an undergraduate university doesn’t really exist in a lot of places,” added Johnston. “So if students want to study recording or production, whatever they do here is going to have the possibility of being recorded better.”
