I bought this unit through American musical supply new for $1199.I am upgrading from the 788 8 track digital portastudio.I am in the process of putting together a really cool home studio once again.I did used to have a full analog demo type home studio with the TSR8,mixer board, and outpuT effects units.

Likes??--Too many to list--24 tracks.The pre-amps sound GREAT.The ease of use---I have already recorded,mixed,premastered and mastered a tune and burnt it onto CD all w'out looking at the manual.Of course having had the 788 helped-but this is 3 times easier than the 788.The save scene options and effects are very user friendly compared to the 788.

So far I haven't come across any dislikes about this machine however I record in a pretty simple fashion.Mostly acoustic guitars,Bass, drums and leads.

This is what ODDLY enough made me make my final decision to buy this unit--I had always thought,after looking at pictures of it that it was toyishly built.WRONG!I went to a music store close by and played around with it.I could not believe how sturdy and truly easy it was to use.To make a short story long--I fell in love with it!!

I have been playing 30 years.I have played professionally overseas in pop rock bands and played all over the NE in the US in acoustic duos.I have had three home recording studios.Two tape analog and a long list of trys and experiments with digital products until I came across the 788.That was where I landed--and here I am now-A happy man with the 2488--a damm good bargain!!
