API The Box 2 users?

I'm wondering if API The Box 2 users would share how the console is working for them. I'm seriously considering it for my next upgrade. Pictures would be awesome also.

Here for the gear
Got my unit about a month ago

Build and sound quality have been exceptional so far. No problems, in fact the noise floor and imaging seems to have improved . I used Neve 5059s and a 5060 before , for my workflow and music (EDM with live instrumentation) I prefer the box.

Would the box 2 work for someone with a bunch of analog synths? Trying to figure this out right now

check the main Box thread in this forum, there's a lot of info there. i recently upgraded from a Box 1 to a Box 2 and posted my (very positive) thoughts between the two in that thread.

as for your situation.. a mixer doesn't really care what you feed it.. synths, drums, guitars, etc... for the most part.. especially one with 8 open 500-series slots for you to customize the channels with.

my studio has a bunch of synths, vintage and modern and the API is great.

i run everything via patch bays into an 8-channel DI and then into the API mic pres.

depending on how extensive your synths are, or other gear.. i'd highly recommend a patch bay system as 8 input channels can get used up pretty quickly.

The Box is the centerpiece of my studio and i'm extremely pleased with it.

Great suggestions, thank you.
