API announces new A2D digital converter at AES Paris
API Audio has announced its new product, an analog-to-digital converter called the A2D. The unit integrates two 312 discrete mic preamps with API's new proprietary analog-to-digital converters into a 1U rack space unit. It represents the first digital offering in API’s line of microphone amplifiers and signal processing modules.
According to API president Larry Droppa, the company had two distinct design goals in producing the A2D. The primary directive was to produce an A-D converter that fully complements a pair of 312 discrete mic amps. Secondly, API was determined that the product not be perceived as “vaporware." To that end, the firm is pleased to announce that the A2D is shipping immediately.
