Source Distribution continues to find success for API’s BOX console in the UK with a sale to popular mixer/engineer Scott Rosser. Rosser, who has “remixed many of the biggest pop names in the industry including Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Mariah Carey,” has been working from the spare room in his home for almost two years now.
Rosser ordered the BOX after just one demo session with Andy Bensley of Source Distribution. He explained: “Source kindly set up a demo unit at their London office for me to try out. I liked the look of the BOX straight away, and ran a stem session through the summing section. It sounded great!”
Now Rosser is expanding his studio’s power without taking up more space: “The BOX had everything I was looking for in one unit whereas the other options I was considering were all separate pieces. My small workspace made having everything to hand on one desk appealing.”
Feeling all early 2000’s dance music was starting to sound alike, Rosser knew he could solve the problem with analog recording equipment. “I wanted to apply a new approach which would help my mixes stand out amongst the competition. I noticed a press release for API’s new project console, and the BOX caught my attention immediately. I’ve only scratched the surface with mine, and it’s already made a big difference to my work.”
“I know The BOX is going to serve me well for years. The build quality is excellent, it’s versatile, and I can now expand the rest of my system around it.”
The BOX was used to mix an album by Fuse ODG, singles for Lethal Bizzle and Stylo G, and official remixes for Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Nicole Scherzinger, Olly Murs, and the boy band Rixton. Compared to mixing before the BOX, Rosser said his work has changed dramatically for the better. When asked what he likes best about The BOX, Rosser replied “Quite simply, the sound! That’s what I bought it for and it has delivered. It immediately added stereo width and a deep, warm feel that I’d been missing in previous mixes.”
