Way way back in 1979, when we introduced the first 4-track cassette tape Portastudio, we were also helping set the professional audio industry standard for recording tracks: twenty-four. Like the Portastudio, 24 recording tracks caught on, becoming the primary creative tool for artists and producers worldwide. Was then. Still is. Only now everyone can have access to that magic number of tracks.
Twenty-five years after the first Portastudio comes the incredible 2488. It's by far the most affordable 24-track recording and mixing workstation ever made for home studios - and the only model within three times its price range that can truly run 24 tracks at 24-bits/ 44.1kHz. Eight inputs can be simultaneously recorded into the XLR and 1/4" inputs. Twenty physical faders control the mixdown channels; each channel has 3-band EQ and access to three built-in effects processors. A large internal hard disk gives the user ample space for over twenty 24-track songs and virtual tracks for comping. Plus the 2488 has a USB 2.0 port for back-up via home computer.
