Quantum 2 premium box
Gerry OC, 28.01.2019
A joy to use faultless connectivity with Studio One , good preamps and lovely AD converters, all your needs in one box, unless of course you love your outboard preamps . Don?t underestimate the preamps in this box, noiseless and clean.

Love this interface
Fotopaul , 16.02.2019
Clean sound, good preamps, and superb integration into Studio One 4. Thunderbolt 2 works very well and no latency to talk about. Direct monitoring would have been a nice option to have, but due to the low latency mode in Studio One 4, it's not needed. Would have liked to see some more advanced mixer controls in UC as well as there are times one need to route sound without opening a DAW. All in all, I'm very happy with this Quantum 2 Thunderbolt Interface!
