The PreSonus Quantum Thunderbolt 2 recording interface provides 192kHz, 24-bit AD conversion with 120dB of dynamic range and PreSonus’ recallable XMax microphone preamps.

PreSonus Quantum Thunderbolt 2The 26x32-channel Quantum is claimed to be the company’s fastest and best-sounding audio/Midi interface, taking advantage of the high-speed Thunderbolt 2 bus and a direct-to-DAW signal path to achieve extremely low latency. For additional I/O channels, simply stack up to four Quantum interfaces via Thunderbolt to create a 96x96 system.

The unit offers two combo mic/instrument/line inputs and six combo mic/line inputs, each with a digitally-controlled XMax preamp and +48V phantom power. There are two quarter-inch TRS main outputs, the eight quarter-inch TRS line outputs, and two independent headphone outs with dedicated volume controls. With Adat Optical I/O and SPDIF stereo digital I/O, it provides up to 18 additional digital inputs and outputs for a total of 26 inputs and 32 outputs. BNC word clock I/O ensures Quantum operates in sync with other digital audio devices, and Midi I/O is also supported.

Designed to be the central hub for any recording studio, the Quantum offers two main and eight auxiliary balanced line-level outputs that are great for monitor mixing. Alongside Mute/Dim and Mono controls, an onboard talkback mic can be routed to any mix, and you can listen to any mix from either of two headphone amps.

The included PreSonus Studio One Artist DAW provides full preamp control functions, and most of the features can also be controlled in PreSonus’ free UC Surface control software for use with third-party recording software. Quantum also includes the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite, giving seven plug-ins in VST, AU and AAX format.

The Quantum interface is shipping at an MAP/street price of US$999.95.
