The PreSonus Quantum 2626 is a 26x26 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface. The Quantum 2626 takes advantage of the jaw-dropping speed of Thunderbolt 3 to achieve a barely measurable round-trip latency of less than 1 millisecond. Superb high-definition digital conversion and eight ultra-transparent analog XMAX mic preamps ensure your audio always sounds its best. Streamline your recording process and make better music, faster with the Quantum 2626.

Timeless Audio

The Quantum 2626’s completely redesigned Thunderbolt driver delivers ultra-low-latency performance. It features cutting-edge 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with 115 dB of dynamic range and superior low-jitter clocking. Coupled with ultra-transparent, pure analog PreSonus XMAX preamps, the 2626 serves up superb audio quality.

Superior Sound

The Quantum 2626 audio interface operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality converters provide 115 dB of dynamic range. This helps capture complex harmonics naturally with no audible distortion. The Quantum 2626 also features acclaimed XMAX Class A analog microphone preamps. These deliver high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs and a rich, overall sound.

Expansive Audio

Impressive speed combined with stunning sound quality means that the Quantum Thunderbolt audio interface is an ideal solution for any size studio. Need more mic preamps? Connect the PreSonus DigiMax DP88 to your Quantum interface’s ADAT/dual S/MUX ports. Once synced, the DigiMax DP88 preamps can be remotely controlled via Studio One or UC Surface. Want to insert your favorite gear? The Quantum 2626 features two direct preamp outputs with dedicated returns, so you can insert your favorite analog compressor and your favorite plug-ins with ease.
