Presonus Launches Quantum Audio Interfaces

US USB-C interfaces are available in four models: Quantum ES 2, ES 4, HD 2, and HD 8      09/05/24

PreSonus has introduced the new line of Quantum Audio Interfaces. They tell us that, featuring all-new MAX-HD mic preamps, high quality, low-noise converters, custom-low latency drivers, and front-facing instrument inputs co-developed with Fender, these USB-C audio interfaces are available in four distinct models: Quantum ES 2, ES 4, HD 2, and HD 8.

Max Gutnik, SVP of Product at PreSonus Hardware, said, "We're so excited to launch the next generation of Quantum Audio Interfaces – the culmination of 30 years of engineering expertise resulting in the highest quality audio interfaces PreSonus has ever made. The new Quantum Audio Interfaces are crafted with sleek, modern design, class-leading performance, and a set of powerful new features that serve creators at every level."

Here's the details direct from Presonus...

The all-new Quantum is the ultimate recording interface for your favorite digital audio workstation (DAW), featuring a list of compelling capabilities, including Auto Gain, Loopback, Reamping (HD series only), and Universal Control software. The Auto Gain function sets the perfect gain level for microphones and instruments, ensuring the perfect take, every time. Loopback audio makes creating monitor and streaming mixes quick and easy. Reamping allows users to send audio directly from the DAW and re-record it through different amps and effects to experimentally sculpt sound. Universal Control allows users to control basic routing functions and critical preamp functions like preamp gain, phantom power, and more – using any mobile or desktop device.

Quantum interfaces offer an unrivaled hardware/software solution for creators poised to produce, record, mix, and master their audio. Boasting seamless integration with Studio One, users can benefit from custom templates and control their hardware directly from their DAW. Additionally, Quantum ES comes with six months of Studio One+, while Quantum HD comes with 12 months of Studio One+ Hybrid – a powerful music creation ecosystem that features unlimited access to music production software, exclusive content, and gigabytes of extras.
