Product Review

The Quantum 4848 was just what the Doctor ordered for my home studio. We electronic musicians often find ourselves needing to patch audio and control voltages to different areas of our studio as the concentration of gear grows. I no longer find myself plugging and unplugging my gear with numerous long cables every time I create something new. I can throw Audio and CV Voltages to and from a Keyboard Synth, Eurorack, PC to my Drum Machine in any order I so choose to patch. My gear can now be routed directly to my external effects and processors with Pipeline or a second patchbay. It's just a blessing. The ADDA Converters are professional studio quality and sound pristine while operating at near zero latency. Near Zero Latency is a must when running large amounts of gear. Thunderbolt has become new Firewire. It's easily expandable for more preamps and outputs. I plan on adding a second Quantum 4848 to my setup in the future.
