Key Info
Presonus Quantum 2626 is a 26-in/26-out Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface that features 8 Recallable XMAX Preamplifiers, ADAT Optical and S/PDIF Digital I/O, and Software Bundle

Streamline your workflow with recallable XMAX pres

For the recording engineers here at Sweetwater, our love affair with PreSonus XMAX preamps goes back as far as we can remember. Today, these Class A preamps are better and more versatile than ever. Their high-voltage rails and robust design allow them to deliver clean and open sound at moderate gain settings, and, as you turn up the heat, you can get even richer, more textured, and more colorful tones from them. Unique among many units in its price point, the Quantum 2626's inputs and outputs are DC-coupled, which captures a fuller frequency range than capacitor-coupled I/O, especially in the lower frequencies. Cooler still, the eight XMAX preamps onboard the Quantum 2626 are fully recallable, meaning you can save your gain settings with your projects and instantly recall them when you need them. It's an absolutely amazing time-saver you’ll truly appreciate.

Extensive I/O lets you expand your system

There are so many great ways to get even more out of your Quantum 2626 than just the eight exceptional XMAX preamps. With two ADAT lightpipe inputs onboard, you can connect a pair of you can expand up 26-in/26-out. Two line returns allow for easy patching-in of hardware equipment and other effects, so you can integrate all of your favorite external units into your digital audio workspace. There's even MIDI I/O onboard, so if you need to connect an old-school controller, synth module, or any number of other gadgets, your Quantum 2626 is ready.

Pro-quality conversion, clocking, and more

We audition a lot of high-end digital audio gear here at Sweetwater, and one thing we've appreciated about PreSonus from the beginning is the way they've been able to provide competitive sounding conversion on a shoestring budget. PreSonus went all out with this fantastic audio interface, as the 24-bit/192kHz converters onboard rival just about everything on the market. We're talking about 120dB of clear and spacial dynamic range. Top it off with rock-solid clocking, and the Quantum 2626 is an ideal central hub for your recording rig.

Epic speed and flexibility of Thunderbolt 3

Don't want to worry about latency anymore? No problem. Pick up this PreSonus Quantum 2626, and hardware latency is virtually a thing of the past. Even when you load up your sessions with high-sample-rate tracks, your Quantum 2626 packs the performance you need to never miss a beat, with round-trip latency of less than 1ms.

Killer software package included

Packaged with Studio One Artist, the Quantum 2626 provides you with everything you need to start recording on your computer. And to take it to the next level, PreSonus includes the Studio Magic Plug-in Suite. This extensive collection of seven popular plug-ins covers models of top studio gear from manufacturers such as Maag Audio, Lexicon, and Arturia, adding up to hundreds of dollars of extra value. Punch up your mix bus with Brainworx's bx-opto, add ambiance with Eventide's SP2016-inspired Stereo Room reverb, fire up transients with SPL's Attacker, and much more. And since these plug-ins are available in AAX, VST, and AU formats, they're compatible with any DAW you choose.
