October 2018; Jessup, MD:
API proudly announces the debut of the new 2448 Recording and Mixing Console, presented for the first time at this year's AES Convention in New York. Bridging the gap between the company's highly successful 1608 and AXS consoles, the new 2448 responds to the industry's requirement for a smaller, compact dual-signal path analog recording console.
The 2448 offers 24 fully featured channels for multitrack recording and 56 channels for mixing, providing audio professionals the advantages of a large format console in a more compact and affordable package. The console is available in 24, 32 and 40 channel frame sizes, and offers a powerful and impressive feature set including dual inputs on each channel, four stereo returns and optionally, API's new cross-platform Final TouchTM fader automation system.
Customers are already taking delivery of the 2448 with eight consoles sold prior to AES.
"Like every API product, the new 2448 was carefully designed with the user in mind," said API President and Owner Larry Droppa. "Given the hundreds of consoles we've sold over the past few years, I have every confidence that the 2448 will meet — and exceed — the very high standards of excellence and performance that the audio community expects of API."
Built to the same exacting standards as the Vision, Legacy AXS, 1608, 1608-II, and The BOX consoles, the 2448 expands API's powerful line of world-class analog recording consoles and continues API's nearly 50 year legacy of combining functionality and reliability with the unmistakable warmth of the API sound.
