Designed for the needs of the recording professional, the Quantum 4848 Thunderbolt Audio Interface from PreSonus is the perfect solution to take your analog gear into the digital domain. The Quantum 4848 allows you to route pristine audio from your vintage and boutique analog gear into your DAW at blazingly fast speed thanks to its near-zero-latency Thunderbolt™ interface. With Studio One’s unique Pipeline XT plug-in and performance management tools, bringing your analog studio into the digital domain has never been easier or sounded better.

Audiophile-grade digital converters and low-jitter clocking create a superior recording and listening experience. The Quantum audio interface operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality converters on every input and output provide 120 dB of dynamic range to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally with no audible distortion. With the Quantum 4848, your audio interface is an integrated extension of your recording environment.
