API 2448 makes European debut at Musikmesse Frankfurt

Posted on: Wednesday 3rd of April 2019

API’s new 2448 console makes its official European debut this week at the Musikmesse show in Frankfurt, Germany. After a highly successful debut at the AES Show in autumn 2018, the 2448 has quickly become sought after as a mid-sized console that packs API’s large format punch. The console has already been commissioned into multiple studios around the world, with over a dozen consoles currently on order and in production at API’s factory.

“The 2448 console was intentionally engineered to fit the spot – and the budget – between our new 1608-II and the Legacy AXS console,” says API president Larry Droppa. “Like all API consoles, the 2448 provides lasting value for the price and delivers API’s warm, analogue sound. Given the number of 20 and even 30-year-old API consoles that are still in daily use, we’re confident these consoles will be making hit records well into the future.”

The 2448 offers a powerful feature set including Dual Inputs on each channel, Stereo Returns and optionally, API’s new cross-platform “Final Touch” fader automation system. The 2448 expands API’s powerful line of world-class analogue recording consoles and continues API’s nearly 50 year legacy of combining functionality and reliability with the unmistakable warmth of the API sound. The 2448 is available in 24, 32, and 40 channel frame sizes and accepts API 500 Series Equalizers, is offered with the option of a 529C Stereo Bus Compressor, and features  surround 5.1 centre section monitoring. A 24 channel console will set you back $86,400.
