24-Channel Analog console with Final Touch Automation, festuring dual-signal path, 24 Mic Pre and EQs, 8 summing Busses, 8 Aux Busses, and of course–legendary API sound.

The API 2448 analog recording and mixing console is a dual-signal path, inline recording console based on the vintage 1604 and classic 1608 consoles, but provides 24 channels of multitrack recording and 56 channels for mixing. The 2448 offers a powerful and impressive feature set including Dual Inputs on each channel, Stereo Returns and optionally, API's new cross-platform Final Touch fader automation system. The 2448 expands API's powerful line of world-class analog recording consoles and continues API's nearly 50 year legacy of combining functionality and reliability with the unmistakable warmth of the API sound.

Dual-Signal Path Design

The 2448 is a “dual-channel” or “in-line” console. Each channel strip provides two independent, discrete audio paths for multitrack recording and mixing. The Large Fader path (input and tracking) and the Small Fader path (playback & monitoring). Using the Program Bus to combine these 2 paths with the 4 Stereo Returns provides 56 channels of audio for mixdown. Contained within the 648C channel module, either path can be used for tracking or mixing, depending on your needs.

Final Touch™ Automation

Final Touch automation combines system reliability, user flexibility and operational simplicity and offers a host of features found only in the most expensive and sophisticated console automation systems typically costing many times more. Consoles can be factory-fitted with Final Touch automation prior to delivery, and existing 2448 consoles can be retrofitted with Final Touch automation.

New: In addition to the 2448, API's Final Touch automation systems are available for the flagship Vision console, the Legacy AXS, and the 1608-II. This allows for mix files to be easily transferred across any of these API console products.

Final Touch Automation Features:
  • Reliable, self-contained system requiring no external computer
  • Individual Switch Control on each fader
  • Global Control Panel in the console Center Section
  • Hi Resolution 7.5" Touch Screen Control
  • Files are easily saved to standard memory cards

  • Motorized Stereo Program Fader
