PreSonus Quantum 2 – Thunderbolt 2 Desktop Audio/MIDI Interface

 

**AVAILABLE NOVEMBER**

 

The Quantum 2 takes all that we loved about the original Quantum, super-charges it with new features and functions and then condenses the whole lot into a much smaller, desktop-friendly chassis! Offering crystal-clear 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution, extremely low latency and blisteringly fast Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, the Quantum 2 also features ADAT Optical I/O, allowing expansion for up to 22 low-latency inputs and 24 outputs in one compact device!

 

As well as being the fastest PreSonus interface to date – thanks to Thunderbolt 2 – the Quantum 2 is also arguably the best-sounding, offering ADCs and DACs with >120 dB dynamic range and up to 24-bit/192kHz recording. It is equipped with a direct-to-DAW signal path, which gives you extremely low-latency performance with no DSP added.

 

It is fully expandable via ADAT Optical I/O to provide up to 22 inputs and 24 outputs, but that’s not all – up to 4 Quantum 2 interfaces can be stacked via Thunderbolt for an incredible 80 inputs and 80 outputs – perfect for even the largest of professional studios!

 

It features integrated software control, which allows for line-level switching, output encoder control assignment, headphone routing and recallable XMAX mic preamps which provide exceptional audio recording quality. In a brilliantly unique twist, the interface features DC coupled analog outputs which can provide control voltage to external analog equipment, controlled by a DAW plug-in; plus peripherals, such as hard drives and displays, can be stacked via Thunderbolt. This is an interface that gets connectivity and functionality completely right!

 

PreSonus also provide a full copy of their Studio One Artist DAW – which can be used to remotely control the preamps along with a number of other remote features – as well as their Studio Magic Plug-in Suite, both free of charge. Even better still, Quantum 2 owners can upgrade to Studio One Professional with an incredible 50% discount off the usual price.

Detailed Specifications:


Computer system requirements:

Below are the minimum computer-system requirements for the Quantum 2 Interface.


Mac

Mac® OS X 10.11.6 64-bit or later

Intel® Core™ i5 or better

4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Windows

Windows® 10 64-bit or later

Intel Core i5 or better

4 GB RAM (8 GB or more recommended)

Mac and Windows Systems

Thunderbolt™ 1.0 or 2.0 port (Note: Your computer's motherboard must support Thunderbolt)

Internet connection (required for Studio One Activation and Content download)

Note: The minimum system requirements may differ for DAWs other than Studio One. Please check the requirements for your DAW of choice with its manufacturer.

Note that the speed of your processor, amount of RAM and size and speed of your hard drive will greatly affect the overall performance of your recording system. Also, a more powerful system (faster processor with more RAM) will allow for lower latency (signal delay) than you might experience while monitoring audio signals.
