I guess that's why I like the Quantum so much it doesn't overlap with my other plugins or hardware gear, it is just "an interface" the DP88 is the same also.

I need to set up some hardware direct monitoring on the patchbay for vocals though. 2-3 ms of delay on a vocal in headphones is like flanging and it's really weird to hear and try to sing.

RME solves this by having "Total Mix" whereas Presonus has no DSP software whatsoever, to achieve the numbers that they did. Just one small workaround, if you have a patchbay and Mackie or something.

Hmmm, are you putting any type of software effects on that vocal, or is it just completely unprocessed?

no effect, just hearing the latency of the round trip

It's possible that the phasing is related to the microphone itself, so maybe I shouldn't blame the Quantum since I haven't tested hardware monitoring yet.

Hey Quantum users, quick question. I want to pick up a Q2 for mobile stuff, then use it in the studio slaved to master interface either via spdif or adat. Just for a couple more IO. This is possible right? thanks

I don't think there's any way to rout the signals to make that work.

Really? That's surprising. And a bummer...

It's bathwater that got thrown away with keeping the baby of having no DSP inside the interface. it's sort of a specialized interface in some ways. But like a good hitman it does what it does very well.
