The Quantum driver utilizes the bus master Direct Memory Access (DMA) to transfer audio data directly to and from the main memory without using CPU processing and the overhead that would come with it. DMA supports 64-bit addressing on systems with 4 GB or more of RAM. A companion DMA engine was also implemented in the Quantum hardware to read digital audio data directly between the ADC/DAC and the computer memory, one sample at a time.
For maximum efficiency, samples are transferred from the Quantum DMA engine directly into driver memory as a 32-bit word to match the way the Quantum driver handles the audio. Where possible, audio samples are also transferred into driver memory in the exact order that the driver expects. This helps to avoid alignment problems and the like, allowing you to run your Quantum drivers at extremely low buffer settings without overtaxing your CPU.
Audiophile-grade digital converters, low-jitter clocking, and transparent preamps add up to a superior recording and listening experience. The Quantum 2626 audio interface operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition mixing and recording. High-quality converters on every input and output provide 115 dB of dynamic range to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally with no audible distortion. And our lauded XMAX Class A analog microphone preamps deliver incredibly high headroom, deep lows, smooth highs, and a rich overall sound so you’ll hear every breath, transient, and detail in your recordings.

About Personus From sales to tech support, logistics to marketing, PreSonus is a company of music-loving sound enthusiasts. It’s not uncommon to see a product manager spend his lunch hour practicing his saxophone through the windows of River City Studios. Or to hear our SVP of Global Sales, Rick Naqvi, pick up a guitar mid-meeting to collect his thoughts. Our engineers created a robust listening recommendation database over a weekend, just to share their favorite jams and discover new bands.
Tech support is bursting with producers, DJs, and multi-instrumentalists. Our founder has a gold record hanging in his office. And with easily more than a millenium of combined audio engineering experience among our employees, it’s no wonder that our new River City Sessions are recorded and mixed by PreSonus team members from sales, product management, executive staff, UI design, engineering, marketing, and more. And that’s why we love what we do, and it’s why we think differently about creating gear. Our passion for sound is the foundation of what we do. We aim to innovate. We strive to disrupt old ways of thinking with something better. In our 25 years, we have created or invented over forty first-to-market products, features, and innovations to solve real-world problems for our customers.
