TASCAM 2488 PortaStudio 24 Track Digital Recording Workstation

The Tascam 2488 was launched exactly 25 years after the original cassette Portastudio and, while the basic concepts of multitrack recording are similar, the detailed operation of the latest model is a revolution in comparison. The 2488 enters the market as the most affordable integrated and transportable 24-track workstation, combining a 24-track hard disk recorder, operating at 24-bit resolution and 44.1kHz sampling rate (although there is a 16-bit mode, if required); a 36-input digital mixer, with four phantom-powered mic/line inputs and four additional mic/line inputs, one of which has a dedicated DI input; versatile built-in effects; and a CD-RW burner. In addition to the 24 real tracks, the system also provides up to 250 virtual tracks to enable multiple takes and comping of vocals. Among the more unusual features for a machine of this type, the 2488 also incorporates a 16-part, 64-voice General MIDI tone generator, complete with an onboard Standard MIDI File player and metronome. This enables MIDI files to be loaded and used as backing tracks.

The unit can also be used as a live mixer with a host of on-board digital effects. This one is in great condition, all knobs and sliders have been cleaned and all functions tested.
