API Audio recently introduced their latest creation, the 2448, which follows in line with their classic console offerings like the 1608, Legacy AXS, and Vision series. The 2448 is available in 24-channel, 32-channel, and 40-channel configurations, and each channel features two complete audio paths for true ‘inline’ simultaneous analog tracking and monitoring.
