Printing Stems through API The Box or 1608 Consoles

Printing Stems through API The Box or 1608

I’m considering purchasing the API Box or 1608 primarily for use as a stem mixer. I would also insert a hardware chain on the mixbuss of the API.

My question is this - when printing stems through the API (one at a time through the inserts), will the resulting stems have excessive hiss once added together to form the full mix (at the dubstage), due to the multiple passes through the mixbuss?

When working ITB with hardware inserts on the ITB mixbuss, I haven’t had noise issues when adding together multiple stems run through my chain - however, I recently tried printing stems through a Heritage summing mixer, and the full mix derived from adding the stems together was unusable due to the hiss. Will I run into the same issue with the API consoles?

I’d be curious what people are experiencing out there - I’m hoping this mini-console will work with my workflow!

Not if you gain stage properly.
