PreSonus Quantum 4848 Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface

The latest generation of Thunderbolt interfaces has arrived.

The latest installment of the Quantum Series of interfaces continues with the introduction of the Quantum 4848. With 32 Inputs and outputs with DB25 line level connection to deliver pristine audio conversion.

With its near zero latency, the Quantum 4848 can incorporate analog gear into your DAW! 

Integrating digital gear is facilitated by 16 channels of ADAT I/O. For a full compliment of 48 channels of conversion, you can simply add two DigiMax DP88s via the 16 ADAT channels. A true Thunderbolt device, up to 4 Quantum 4848 interfaces can be stacked to create a 192x192 system—or combine the Quantum 4848 with Quantum and Quantum 2 interfaces to add PreSonus’ recallable XMAX Class A high-headroom preamps.

Studio One’s latency management allows you to stay in the native processing domain throughout the entire production process, so you can easily mix and match your favorite plug-ins with your favorite boutique hardware processors. Furthermore, Studio One allows the Quantum 4848 to go as fast as you need—flexible dropout protection reduces the risk of audio dropouts in large, CPU-heavy songs, even at very small buffer settings.

Quantum sports high-speed Thunderbolt connectivity and a no-frills, direct-to-DAW architecture that was designed to transport your audio to and from your DAW with an imperceptible amount of latency. Cutting-edge 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with 120 dB of dynamic range ensures the fidelity of your audio as it moves to the digital domain.

The Quantum audio interface operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality converters on every input and output provide 120 dB of dynamic range to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally with no audible distortion. BNC word clock I/O and low-jitter clocking ensure the Quantum 4848 and other digital audio devices operate in tight sync for superior imaging.

Designed with the modern analog studio in mind, the Quantum 4848 provides flexible connectivity to easily integrate into analog patchbays, vintage consoles, and more. And with Studio One’s unique Pipeline XT plug-in and performance management tools, bringing your analog studio into the digital domain has never been easier or sounded better.

3. We always refund the payment according to how the original purchase was made and aim to do so within 72hrs of the return being received by us.

4. Returned goods are liable for a restocking fee of 15% towards handling and repackaging if the order is not returned in its original, unopened packaging. This charge will be subject to our inspection of the returned goods.
