We're sorry-this item is unavailable.
The TASCAM MX2424 features 24-bit digital audio, provides unlimited virtual tracks, and a 9GB internal hard drive offers 50 minutes of solid recording and a rear panel SCSI Wide port allows connection of more drives. It allows Sound Designer II/WAV audio file formats using PC- or Mac-formatted drive. It has built-in editing capabilities including 100 levels of undo. Built-in SMPTE synchronizer for generating or slaving to time code. Word Clock in/out/thru. MIDI in/out/thru. AES/EBU and S/PDIF 2-channel I/O for direct connection of digital devices.
The MX-2424 is a professional 24 track, 24 bit hard disk recorder. The MX-2424 delivers the convenience, power and reliability of a dedicated multitrack, yet still offers the sophistication of a DAW.
Interfacing the MX-2424 in a studio is easy, with option cards available for all the common audio formats. The MX-2424 provides separate slots for the analog I/O cage and the digital I/O slots, offering the ability to interface with digital and analog sources simultaneously.
The MX-2424 offers thorough time code and control options, including SMPTE and MTC chase and generate, plus Word Clock and Video Sync resolve. For controlling the MX-2424, you can use the optional RC-2424 remote, or use MMC, 9-pin control, or even an Alesis LRC remote.
The MX-2424's extensive recording capabilities and time code capabilities have earned it a place in major motion picture and television production environments. It's affordable price helped the MX-2424 find it's way into numerous personal and project studios. With TASCAM's DA-88 legacy and MMR film dubbers, you've come to expect that.
However, the MX-2424's rock-solid reliability and friendly interface have opened the doors to markets where DAWs normally don't go - live sound. The MX-2424's multitrack playback functionality is commonly used for multi-zone music feeds, music mixes with double tracked vocals, surround sound effects, and more.
Since the MX-2424 uses the drive formats and audio file formats that your computer uses, it is easy to move projects to and from the DAW of your choice. The MX-2424 even time-stamps the audio files, allowing DAWs like ProTools, Logic, or Digital Performer to automatically spot raw audio files in the project.
Audio I/O Cards:
The MX-2424 has two I/O slots. One slot accepts the analog I/O cage; the other slot accepts one of the three digital I/O cards. Both I/O slots can be filled at the same time, and both will be active at the same time. (Outputs on the cards are always active; inputs will be selected in blocks of 8.)

I operate the MX2424 in my Small Professional Recording Studio Business. In combination with my PowerMac G4 and MX-View this is a System that compares to the very best in the professional recording industry. The MX2424 is the same machine as the MX2424SE with out the extra frontal DVD slide in storage unit. You have it rated at 10's accross the board, yet I feel that the strait 2424 with the internal 9 gig followed up with additional disc space using the wide scsi in back is a much better bet. So, I rate the MX2424 with the analog converter to my Analog 32 track 8 bus mixer a superior combination for Pro recording, anywhere!
I preferred the Mackie, there was more dynamic range and was more flexible. but its still pretty good.
