Music for CBS series ‘CSI’ scored with API console

John Keane, a veteran composer and music recording artist, is using a 1608 small-frame console from Automated Processes, Inc. (API) for the hit CBS series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”

The 1608 incorporates API’s discrete electronics topology and is built to the same exacting standards as its flagship Vision and Legacy Series consoles. The standard 1608, with 16 input channels, eight buses, eight aux sends, eight reverb returns and full center section facilities, includes a dozen 550A three-band equalizers and four 560 10-band graphic EQ modules with space available for eight additional 500 Series modules.

Keane said he likes the flexibility of being able to move modules around and add 500 Series modules from other manufacturers. To complement its “API sound,” Keane has added 500 Series modules from Purple Audio and Shadow Hills to the 1608.

With the 1608 as the centerpiece of his newly-renovated studio, Keane began to slot modules for drums to craft a truly awesome input that would be “up” at all times. Then he mic’d and tweaked his Yamaha C7.
