Way way back in 1979, when we introduced the first 4-track cassette tape Portastudio, we were also helping set the professional audio industry standard for recording tracks: twenty-four. Like the Portastudio, 24 recording tracks caught on, becoming the primary creative tool for artists and producers worldwide. Was then. Still is. Only now everyone can have access to that magic number of tracks.

Twenty-five years after the first Portastudio comes the incredible 2488. It's by far the most affordable 24-track recording and mixing workstation ever made for home studios - and the only model within three times its price range that can truly run 24 tracks at 24-bits/ 44.1kHz. Eight inputs can be simultaneously recorded into the XLR and 1/4" inputs. Twenty physical faders control the mixdown channels; each channel has 3-band EQ and access to three built-in effects processors. A large internal hard disk gives the user ample space for over twenty 24-track songs and virtual tracks for comping. Plus the 2488 has a USB 2.0 port for back-up via home computer.

The Tascam 2488 is easy to use, but not particularly dependable. A friend and I both have a 2488 and we both have hardware problems with it. My friend's portastudio will stall when recording once in a while. The one that I own has a few buttons that will not work, including up and down buttons. I sent my unit for repairs and am waiting for it to be returned to me. Two months is long enough to wait, I think.

I bought the 2488 because it was awarded a prize for best product of the year in its category. However I wish I saw the product review at:


I would have bought something else. Probably a Roland or maybe the Protools. I thought the Tascam was a great deal over the more expensive digital boards, but I was wrong. I should have paid more for dependability.
