Gets the job done
Brendan McCurry, 18.07.2020
Bought this unit to pair with new pc build that makes use of the thunderbolt 3 protocol. This unit seems to be one of the few thunderbolt 3 interfaces available with this amount of I/O, most others seen to have fewer built in mic pres and are considerably more expensive. For what I wanted to achieve this unit fits the bill nicely ( recording band practice and other small mixing projects).

Construction.

Seems to be reasonably well constructed and quite small for the amount of I/O compared to my last interface, the focusrite pro 40, it's quite small which is great for mobile recording. If I had to be critical I would have liked my power button on the front.

Sound

I've had the chance record a full band and I'm quite pleased with the sound especially for this price range. Overall it's quite a clean sounding interface but not harsh, sounds great on drums, guitars and vox. Does good job of capturing transients and has a nice rounded character.

Included software The included studio one Artist 4 has gave me a few errors (graphics related) and also corrupted projects. I've also got some cracks and pops on a reasonably high spec computer (gigabyte designare motherboard, 16gb ram, i5 9600k, 1tb NVME SSD) and had to move up to 256 samples latency but this is with alot of tracks 100 + as I was mixing 10/12 songs in one project at 20 percent CPU usage. So not sure if it's Studio one or the PC. Other than that I like the functionality (coming from logic) and generally it's getting the job done. Currently deciding whether to upgrade to pro version. I was a little disappointed that some of the included 3rd party plugin/software requires an ilok but sadly that seems to be the way the industry is moving.

Overall

This is a nice little Interface with alot of I/O expandability. I was able to hook up my old Interface (pro 40 flashed to standalone mode) as an 8 channel adat preamp bank for 16 channels.

Just a warning to anyone buying this, if you plan to run on older MacBook pros/apple machines with thunderbolt 2 make sure to buy the apple thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter as other brands do not work both ways as I learnt trying to sync this up to my old 2013 retina MacBook Pro.

Fast audio interface
Yegor24, 26.01.2021
After searching for the fastest audio interface I ordered presonus quantum 2626. I am not disappointed! It works really well with my MacBook Pro 2015 (with bidirectional Apple thunderbolt adapter). If I practice my keyboard with Garritan CFX or Keyscape in standalone mode I can set buffer size to 32 samples with very rare glitches. It works well with Cubase (I use buffer size 128 samples). Recommend!

Mixed emotions
Jürgen36, 16.01.2021
Ich habe gemischte Gefühle bei der Bewertung des Quantum 2626, das ich in meinem Studio mit einem Mac Pro 7.1 verwende. Akustisch nehme ich Gesang auf, sonst E-Gitarre und viele virtuelle Instrumente in der DAW.

Pro: Super Latenz-Werte! Eingänge vorn, für mich praktisch. Wirkt sehr stabil, das funktionale Design gefällt mir ebenfalls. Präzise Regler, sauberer Klang. Einschleifmöglichkeit für meinen Kompressor. Gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältinis.

Contra: die Software ist für mich ein Witz! Nur Anzeigen, keine Routing-Möglichkeit. Oder bin ich von Focusrite verwöhnt? Beim Saffire konnte ich Analog- und SPIDF-Out gleichzeitig verwenden, ich habe meine Aktiv-Boxen immer digital verbunden. Beim Presonus-Gerät kann ich nur in der DAW analog oder digital als Output wählen. Nur eines zur Zeit. Wenn ich digital wähle, gibt Logic den Audio-Editor nicht über die Boxen aus. Analog abzuhören, ist wahrscheinlich am verbreitetsten, ich mache es jetzt auch wieder und höre keinen Unterschied.

Für jeden, der nicht meine Ansprüche an eine Software mit Routing-Möglichkeit stellt, ist es meiner Meinung nach ein tolles Gerät!

zeer goede prijs-kwaliteit
Vladib, 19.10.2020
Ik gebruik deze interface in mijn home studio, ik heb jarenlang gewerkt met een usb-interface met 2 in- en 2-uitgangen, en het voortdurend versteken van kabels werd wat vermoeiend.
De installatie van de interface gaat vanzelf (op Mac wel opletten: je moet echt lezen wat je aanvinkt tijdens de installatie, en niet gewoon zonder op te letten de door ja Mac aanbevolen optie selecteren: werkt de Quantum zoals hij hoort te werken. Met deze interface ben ik er in geslaagd mijn computer ook als looper te gebruiken -omdat er zo weinig latency is-, iets wat met de usb-interface nooit gelukt is.
De prijs is in vergelijking met andere thunderbolt-interfaces echt laag. ik kan natuurlijk niet vergelijken, maar voor mij is de kwaliteit van de Presonus goed genoeg,
Het software-pakket dat je er bij krijgt is mooi meegenomen, maar vereist wel dat je je bij alle fabrikanten van de plugin's registreert, wat best wel wat tijd vergt. Voorlopig heb ik deze extra software nog niet echt gebruikt, omdat ik al redelijk lang met een vast pakket van plugin's werk, en eigenlijk geen nood heb aan de extra's.
Het enige minpunt dat ik zie is het ontbreken van een thunderbolt-kabel, maar dat blijkt bij andere thunderbolt-interfaces ook het geval te zijn...
