Automated Processes, Inc. (API) have renamed their Arsenal Audio brand to JDK Audio after receiving a complaint from JVC America of the use of the word ‘arsenal’ in reference to API’s recently introduced brand of pro audio equipment. Arsenal Audio by API products include a microphone preamp and two versions of a four band audio equalizer manufactured for use by professional recording artists and engineers. JVC Americas Corp. is the registered owner of the word ‘arsenal’ in association with products for car audio equipment.
API has established a brand new line of analog signal processing products, Arsenal Audio. The new line provides an outlet for the company to innovate and expand beyond the core technology on which API has built its reputation since it was established in the late 1960s. Arsenal Audio will launch at Summer NAMM in Nashville with an initial offering of three new products, the R20 two-channel mic pre and the R24 two-channel four-band EQ, plus the V14 four-band VPR 500 format equalizer.
