API announces new 2448 mixing console

Posted on: Tuesday 23rd of October 2018

API presented their new 2448 recording and mixing console for the first time at this year’s AES Convention in New York. Pictured is API president and owner Larry Droppa (L) with engineer/studio owner Dave Trumfio at the launch of the 2448. Trumfio has bought the first 32-channel version of the desk, to be installed in his new ‘Golddiggers Sound’ studio, currently being built at the former location of director Ed Wood’s sound stage in Hollywood. “I was looking for a good rock’n’roll console, and that’s what API make,” said Trumfio.

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 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 Touch 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 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.”

API’s director of sales Dan Zimbelman remarked that, with 23 consoles (including the new 1608-II) in production, API has never been so busy.
