​ This kit enables you to easily add a VGA monitor to your Tascam 2488. All you have to provide is the TASCAM 2488, a PC compatible monitor and a standard Male-to-Male VGA cable (please refer to the FAQ below for information on the VGA cable).

The TASCAM 2488 is a fantastic multi-tracker, but trying to view its small display when you are not directly in front of it or when you have an instrument hung round your neck can be a real problem.

The HGR-2488 Prism Monitor Interface Card provides the solution. This circuit board fits inside the TASCAM-2488 and reproduces the TASCAM’s LCD display on a standard PC monitor.

The large screen format provided by the HGR-2488 Prism allows the musician the freedom to create music away from the 2488, meaning you (and the rest of the band) can easily see what’s happening. For TASCAM 2488 MK1 users the low brightness of the LCD display is no longer a major drawback. No more eye strain!
