JESSUP. MARYLAND - MAY 2012: API marked the tenth 1608 delivery to Argentina with the installation of the console at Studio Fort Music. Sold by SL Audio, API's sole distributor in Argentina, the console joined the studio's digital platform to create a completely analog recording set-up.

Studio Fort Music's manager Oscar Gimenez Plett has been active in the Argentinian music scene for some time. He began his engineering career in the 1970s at Studio DISCOS CBS. He then moved on to Sandro's Studio, Studio Greengo, Ion Studios, Pulstar Studios, Digiart Studios and Del Absto al Pasto before landing at Fort Music.

"API is the mixer brand which I learned to work with," Plett said. "Once I tried the new 1608, I saw that it has the same audio dimension and quality as the API consoles had back in 1974, when I used them for recording Sandro's hits at CBS Records!"

Over his career Plett has worked with artists such as Sandro, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Arturo Sandoval, Vox Dei, Vivencia, Iva Znichi, Ricardo Fogli, María Marta Serra Lima, Leo Dan, Paz Martinez, Cuarteto de Guitarras Martinez Zarate, Hilda Herrera, Cacho Castaña and Valeria Linch.

API Managing Director, Gordon Smart, said, "SL Audio continues to exceed our expectations in the Argentinian market, and it's an honor to place a 1608 into such a prestigious facility like Studio Fort Music."
