NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AUGUST 2009: For forty years, the legendary sound of API Audio’s celebrated analog consoles and outboard processors has been woven into the very fabric of modern music, from classic rock to ’80s pop to ’90s grunge to today’s indie rock, and every genre and sub-genre between.

In keeping with Quentin Tarantino’s use of eclectic music from his personal vaults as opposed to commissioning new musical scores, “Inglourious Basterds” features more than a dozen familiar and exotic tracks. What’s new is that the stereo masters dating back to the 60s have been converted to 5.1 audio through the new proprietary Penteo Surround process.
