New PreSonus Thunderbolt Interface

Quantum 2626 provides up to 26 inputs and 26 outputs      10/01/20

PreSonus has introduced a new model in their Quantum series of audio interfaces. They tell us that the Quantum 2626 uses the blazing fast Thunderbolt 3 bus to achieve a barely measurable roundtrip latency (as low as <1 ms), enabling you to record and monitor with up to 24-bit, 192 kHz fidelity through your favorite plug-ins, without leaving your DAW. They say that high-quality converters on every analog input and output provide 115 dB of dynamic range to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally with no audible distortion. Here's more details in the company's own words...

The Quantum 2626 provides up to 26 inputs and 26 outputs, with 8 of PreSonus’ lauded XMAX Class A analog microphone preamps, 2 instrument inputs to directly connect basses and guitars, and 6 balanced line level inputs for your favorite synths all on front-mounted combo jacks. The first two inputs are equipped with direct outputs and dedicated returns to patch in your favorite outboard gear. An additional 18 inputs and outputs are available via ADAT/dual SMUX and S/PDIF.

You also get eight ¼” TRS outputs that are DC coupled for sending control voltages, plus two balanced Main outputs, two high-volume headphone outs with dedicated volume controls, and MIDI I/O. BNC word clock I/O ensures the Quantum 2626 and other digital audio devices operate in tight sync. The interface is well protected by a 1U rack-mountable, rugged, all-metal chassis with metal knobs.

With the included Studio One® Artist DAW, the Quantum 2626 is a complete recording solution. The interface also is compatible with any recording software that supports Core Audio (macOS) or ASIO (Windows). Free PreSonus UC Surface control software for Mac® and Windows® provides access to full metering, including metering for connected PreSonus DP88 8-channel A/DA preamp/converters, as well as UC Surface’s integrated Real-Time Analyzer (RTA).

Pricing and Availability:
The Quantum 2626 is available now at PreSonus dealers at a U.S. street price of $599.95.
