40-channel analogue console featuring dual-inputs per channel built to API’s standard of excellence – each channel loaded with preamps and EQ
The API 2448 is API’s latest fully analogue inline recording console inspired by their legendary Classic 2488.
The API 2448 has both a large fader path for tracking and a small fader path for monitoring offering a total of 56 channels of audio at mixdown through the Program Bus. Both audio paths are contained in the 648C channel module and can be used for tracking or mixing.
The Large Fader Path includes API’s 212L Mic preamp offering up to 55dB of gain and includes +48V phantom power as well as -20dB Pad. This is the typical tracking path. The Small Fader Path provides all the tools for mixing your audio signals and provide up to 10dB of gain via a rotary potentiometer replacing the slider fader.
The API 2448 boasts both 1550A parametric EQ and 560 Graphic EQ giving you the choice of two of API’s flagship EQs. Each input channel has a medium-size VU analogue meter with the eight first also working for the summing buses. Additional VU meters are also provided for the master section, eight Auxes and four stereo returns.
