There are 2 effects processors on the unit. The first is a multi-effects processor that you can apply to any channel on the way in. It prints the effect to the track as you record. You assign it to one of the inputs. Or you can bounce out one of the outputs back into the unit if you choose. The second effect is a room simulator that is applied to all channels via an effects buss. It is used for room reverb vocal effects etc. The multi effects processor includes guitar, Bass, Vocal and Drum effects. In addition there is per channel EQ and a multi-band dynamics processor for mastering. I hope this helps.BTW the manual does stink!Ted
I just got the Tascam 2488neo. I thought I was upgrading from my Fostex VF-16, but now I'm not so sure. Tascam claims you can use their on-board multiple effects (chorus & reverb on vocals for example) and pick the channels that the effects will apply to. It appears that you can only do one and it seems to apply to all channels. The manual is of little to no help. Anyone out there have any suggestions before I go totally bonkers? Thanks!
