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
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.
