The Quantum 2 24-bit, 192 kHz audio/MIDI interface is PreSonus®’ fastest and best-sounding audio/MIDI interface, taking advantage of the high-speed Thunderbolt™ 2 bus and ADAT Optical I/O to deliver up to 22 inputs and 24 outputs, with extremely low latency. 

PreSonus Quantum 2 - 22x24 Thunderbolt 2 Audio Interface

A great choice for a wide variety of recording environments, the 22x24-channel Quantum 2 is PreSonus®’ fastest and best-sounding audio/MIDI interface, taking advantage of the high-speed Thunderbolt™ 2 bus and a no-frills, direct-to-DAW (no DSP added) signal path to achieve extremely low latency. Cutting-edge 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with 120 dB of dynamic range and PreSonus’ recallable XMAX microphone preamps combine to deliver superb audio quality. For more I/O channels, simply stack up to 4 Quantum 2 interfaces via Thunderbolt to create a monster 80x80 system. Using the included Studio One Artist DAW or UC Surface control software, you can remote-control the preamps and many other features. To top it off, Quantum 2 owners get the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite for free.
