PreSonus Introduces the Quantum 2626, a Fast 8-Mic-Pre Interface | NAMM 2020

For bands wanting to record on their own or project studios looking to track a band's worth of instruments at once, PreSonus' early eight-mic-pre FirePod and FireStudio interfaces were great tools in the earlier years of the 2000s. Today, PreSonus announces a new, high-speed entrant to that lineage with the Quantum 2626.

It joins the rest of the existing Quantum line, which uses Thunderbolt 3 connections to achieve less-than-1ms round-trip latency. It also features 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with a dynamic range of 115dB and comes with the company's Studio One Artist DAW and Studio Magic plugin suite.

  • 24-bit resolution and up to 192 kHz sampling rate
  • 8 pristine XMAX preamps

  • 8 balanced line inputs
  • Dual headphone outputs with independent level control
  • ADAT Optical/Dual SMUX inputs/outputs: 16x16 channels at 44.1 or 48 kHz; 8x8 channels at 88.2 or 96 kHz
