    8 XLR inputs (balanced) and a Line/Guitar jack with the control for the volume. Each track provides a dedicated 45mm fader. It is the successor of the 2488Neo and, undoubtedly, it is a professional machine. Perfect for the Home Studio.

    The DSD technology provides an astonishing sampling frequency, 5,6MHz or 2,8MHz (1-bit). The professional mastering becomes accessible. AudioGate is the included software.

    The section of the analog mixer is really complete and with many rather valid features. For instance, 3-band EQ and Trim control. The signal processing is at 44.1 kHz and 40-bit. But it is expensive.
