PreSonus® Quantum 2626
With a barely measurable round-trip latency of less than 1 ms, it's no wonder Sound on Sound magazine dubbed Quantum-series Thunderbolt audio interfaces the “fastest audio interface on the planet.” The Quantum 2626 uses the Thunderbolt 3 bus and PreSonus®’ proprietary driver to achieve the lowest round-trip latency of any audio interface (as low as <1 ms). Now you can record and monitor with up to 24-bit, 192 kHz fidelity through your favorite plug-ins, without leaving the DAW.
The Quantum 2626 provides up to 26 audio inputs and 26 outputs, with 8 of PreSonus’ lauded XMAX Class A analog microphone preamps. High-quality converters on every analog input and output provide 115 dB of dynamic range, with superior low-jitter clocking, to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally with no audible distortion. The result is the superb audio quality sought by working professionals. You also get MIDI I/O and BNC word clock I/O that ensures tight sync with other digital audio devices. The interface is well protected by a 1U rack-mountable, rugged, all-metal chassis with metal knobs.
With the included PreSonus Studio One™ Artist DAW and Studio Magic Software Suite, the Quantum 2626 is a complete recording solution. The interface also is compatible with virtually any recording software for macOS or Windows. Free PreSonus UC Surface control software provides access to full metering and an integrated real-time analyzer (RTA).
