At AES: API Introduces 2448 Analog Console

API sold eight 2448 consoles before the model was released.

New York, NY (October 18, 2018)—At the AES Convention Wednesday, API Audio president Larry Droppa dramatically pulled a sheet off a mysterious apparition in the middle of the API booth to reveal the company’s new 2448 recording and mixing console.

The model, which is shipping, has already sold eight desks prior to the show, with the first one going to producer/engineer to Dave Trumfio of Kingsize Soundlabs and cult 90s synth act Pulsars. In fact, the new 32-channel desk arrives today at his newly constructed facility within Los Angeles’ Gold-Diggers club/hotel/studio complex.

Intended as a middle ground between API’s 1608 and AXS consoles, the 2448 is a compact, dual-signal path analog recording console. Available in 24, 32 and 40 channel frame sizes, the 2448 typically sports 24 channels for multitrack recording and 56 channels for mixing.

Features include dual inputs on each channel, four stereo returns and optionally, API’s new cross-platform Final Touch fader automation system.
