In 2017, Ben Lorenz and Phil Magee of Willis Sound revived an old church in the small town of Willis, Michigan, and created a beautiful studio space and live room. With a fantastic mix of analog and digital gear, the studio and crew have been hard at work recording artists, hosting live shows and doing video production.

With an ever-growing list of clients, Lorenz felt that there was a need to expand the studio's 16-Channel API 1608 console. He called upon Vintage King's Cedric Yee and the Tech Shop team to install API's 16 Channel Expander and build out a patch bay that allowed for recording to the studio's tape machine and Pro Tools rig at the same time.  

Continue on below to see how Willis Sound came to fruition and dive into the recent expansion of their API 1608 console.
