The TASCAM 2488MKII has all the amazing features as its predecessor the TASCAM 2488, but with an 80GB hard drive, an improved LCD display, and a colorful user-friendly unit design! With the TASCAM 2488MKII 24-Track Digital Recording Workstation you can record 8 inputs into the XLR and 1/4" inputs simultaneously. 20 physical faders control the mixdown channels, and each channel has 3-band EQ and access to 3 built-in effects processors.
