A New Design and Mastering Effects Added to Best-selling Recorder

Montebello, CA (September 2, 2008): TASCAM's best-selling 24-track / 24-bit workstation has been upgraded to the 2488neo. The updated model has a bold new look and new mastering effects to create punchy, polished mixes. Like its predecessor, the 2488neo has eight microphone inputs, seven effects processors, a 80GB hard drive and the simple user interface common to all TASCAM Portastudios.

"TASCAM continues to innovate the field of home recording," says Paul Jenkins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TASCAM. "We understand that musicians want tools that are simple to use so that they can stay creative. Our Digital Portastudio lineup is second to none, and the 2488neo is the new flagship in that segment."

The 2488neo features an 80GB hard drive, enough for hours of 44.1kHz/24-bit recording. The eight microphone inputs, four with XLR and phantom power, can be assigned to any track for recording large ensembles. A reverb effect, multi effect with guitar amp simulation, and up to 9 compressors are also included. The new mastering effect includes multi-band EQ, compression and limiting for professional-sounding mixes which can be burned to CD or transferred to computer through the USB 2.0 jack. Built for musicians who want to record without needing a computer, the 2488neo continues TASCAM's legacy of easy-to-use Portastudios for home recording.
