API announces that the New England School of Communications (NESCOM) in Bangor, Maine, recently installed a 48-channel API Vision large-frame surround sound analog console in its Studio D. The company states that it built NESCOM's Vision console to specification, and that the console includes hand-selected bird's eye maple trim, compressors on every channel and 560 Graphic EQs in the options bucket.

"Classes only started a few weeks ago, but already we're in love with the new Vision," says Dave MacLaughlin (pictured), executive director of audio for NESCOM. "I, and some of the other instructors, have conducted several recording sessions with students. The Vision's sound is purely magical. It's probably the best-sounding console I've ever heard. Even with the processing flat, signals come out sounding better than when they went in. In addition, the Vision looks great. It's literally awe-inspiring."

NESCOM says that its new Vision is being used primarily by juniors and seniors working in classes and independently on music and post-production video projects. According to NESCOM, two students are recording and mixing full albums on the console this semester, and eight students are set to do the same in the spring. Studio D includes full 5.1 monitoring, allowing students to use the console's surround sound topology.

For more information, visit API will also exhibit at the 129th AES Convention in San Francisco from November 5-7, 2010 in booth #720.
