API Audio president Larry Droppa pulled a sheet off a mysterious object in the middle of the API booth at the AES Convention yesterday, revealing the company’s new 2448 recording and mixing console.

Intended as a middle ground between API’s 1608 and AXS consoles, the 2448 is a compact, dual-signal path analogue recording console. Available in 24, 32 and 40 channel frame sizes, the 2448 typically sports 24 channels for multitrack recording and 56 channels for mixing.

Features include dual inputs on each channel, four stereo returns and optionally, API’s new cross-platform Final Touch fader automation system.

The model has already sold eight desks prior to the show, with the first going to producer/engineer Dave Trumfio of Kingsize Soundlabs (pictured above) and cult 90s synth act Pulsars. He will use the new 32-channel desk at his newly constructed facility within Los Angeles’ Gold-Diggers club/hotel/studio complex.
