Overview

Designed for the needs of the recording professional, the PreSonus Quantum 4848 is the perfect solution to take your analog gear into the digital domain. Equipped with 32 inputs and outputs of DB25 line-level connectivity and pristine digital conversion with 120 dB of dynamic range, the Quantum 4848 allows you to bring vintage and boutique analog gear into your DAW at blazingly fast speed thanks to its near-zero-latency Thunderbolt™ interface. 16 additional channels of ADAT Optical I/O let you tie in digital gear, and you can expand your simultaneous I/O to 192 channels. The included Studio One® Professional DAW features Pipeline XT, allowing you to use your analog gear as plug-ins inside your Studio One session.

With the Quantum 4848, your audio interface is an integrated extension of your recording environment. Rear panel DB25 line-level I/O makes connecting your Quantum 4848 to your existing analog patchbay a breeze. With 32 channels of inputs and outputs at sample rates up to 192 kHz, you can route audio from your vintage gear and analog recording console to your DAW and back in pristine quality, capturing every nuance of your boutique equipment. Integrating digital gear is facilitated by 16 channels of ADAT I/O. For a full compliment of 48 channels of conversion, you can simply add two DigiMax DP88s via the 16 ADAT channels. A true Thunderbolt device, up to 4 Quantum 4848 interfaces can be stacked to create a 192x192 system—or combine the Quantum 4848 with Quantum and Quantum 2 interfaces to add PreSonus’ recallable XMAX Class A high-headroom preamps.
