Sound on Sound called The Quantum “The Fastest Interface on the Planet,” which ranks among the highest praise we’ve ever received. Following up the Quantum is the incredible Quantum 4848, which serves as an exceptional bridge for bringing your boutique analog processing gear into a digital workflow.
“They’ve achieved low-latency performance that, with the exception of PCIe cards, is currently unrivaled by any interface I know of. “
-Sam Inglis, Sound on Sound
And the FaderPort… what more can be said? The FaderPort Classic was one of our most enduring products, and enjoyed nearly a ten-year manufacturing run. And its new younger brother is even better. With the compact, easy-to-use FaderPort, you’ll enjoy the fastest, most efficient workflow and the most session control you’ve ever experienced.
Quantum 4848 Overview:
This is a fun one going on with our friends at Splice. Mix “Nobody’s Gonna Love You” into a radio-ready track to win hardware and software from us, the Mixing University course from Recording Revolution, an Eyeball microphone cover, and a call with Briana Tyson.
Longtime friend and PreSonus advocate Brian Lorelle of OBEDIA and PC Audio Labs recently interconnected four Quantums and four DigiMax DP88s for a series of test runs in his laboratory in Nashville, taking a close look at CPU usage and latency under varying conditions including different sample rates, plug-in counts, buffer sizes, etc. If you’ve been looking for a Windows recording solution that takes advantage of the speed and power of Thunderbolt, with tons of I/O, this is a must-watch!
What’s your favorite thing about your job? Why did you choose to work here?
Everyone has a side gig, what’s yours?
Playing, producing and writing music.
Why did you choose this as your favorite?
Simply put, this product inspires me to be creative, makes me want to make music and sounds amazing—recording an alto saxophone can be difficult as there are a lot of high frequencies that are difficult to reproduce/capture unless you have high quality mic pres and converters, the Quantum and Quantum 2 capture my sound perfectly and makes me sound great. I practically like the Quantum 2 because of the size and portability and I don’t need more than 4 mic pres.
Got any tips for working with the Quantum 2?
Plug it into your Thunderbolt port, open Studio One or your favorite app and hit record, then watch what happens!
Every design decision during Quantum’s engineering was made with one goal in mind: speed. PreSonus Quantum sports high-speed Thunderbolt connectivity and a no-frills, direct-to-daw architecture, with no DSP. The result is our leanest, fastest, lowest-latency interface to date.
Audiophile-grade digital converters, low-jitter clocking, and recallable preamps add up to a superior recording and listening experience. The Quantum 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. And our recallable XMAX Class A analog microphone preamps deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound so you’ll hear every breath, transient, and detail in your recordings.
Cutting-edge 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with 120 dB of dynamic range and a surprising amount of expandability and software control options round out the package.
