Tascam 2488MKII 24-Track Digital Portastudio
The 2488mkII is the follow-up to the best-selling, simple-to-use 24-track recording and mixing workstation for home studios. Like its predecessor, eight inputs can be simultaneously recorded into the XLR and 1/4" inputs - enough for a whole band. 19 physical faders control mono and stereo channels without scrolling through pages for quick and easy mixing. Each channel has 3-band EQ with a parametric mid-band and access to three built-in effects processors, including reverb and multieffects.
After the final mix is recorded to the dedicated stereo master recorder, the built-in CD-RW drive can burn a CD master in addition to backing up the hard drive and importing and exporting WAV files. New features from the 2488 include a larger hard drive, an all-new LCD display, new guitar effects and improved CD mastering capabilities.
