The 2488neo is TASCAM’s latest take on its 24-track, 24-bit recorder. Sporting eight mic inputs, it’s one of the few recorders able to record and mix a full band. A new batch of mastering effects joins the reverb, amp simulation, compression and EQ processing to create and burn finished-sounding CDs in a stand-alone unit. With TASCAM’s simple interface, great-sounding preamps and chart-ready effects the 2488neo is the ultimate 24-track production machine.
