Capture your creativity with the Quantem ES 2 – the recording interface for self-made musicians and audio creators.

THE CULMINATION OF 30 YEARS OF INNOVATION

The ES 2 features two newly redesigned high-definiton MAX-HD mic preamps with +75 dB of gain, making it ideally suited for today's most popular microphones. Guitarists and bassists will love the instrument input, co-developed with Fender engineers. An Auto Gain button sets the perfect gain level for your microphones and instruments, while an illuminated push encoder provides flexible control over gain level and output volume.

And bright and responsive LED metering provides easy visual feedback for your inputs and outputs, making it great for self-produced recording.

HIGH PERFORMANCE SIGNAL FLOW

Our custom low latency driver provides exceptionally low audio latencies when recording, and high-performance converters complete the front end to ensure that you sound your best throughout your entire signal chain.

ALL-NEW MAX-HD MIC PREAMPS

The Quantum ES 2 features two newly designed mic preamps with +75 dB of gain. The culmination of 30 years of innovation, MAX-HD preamps are transparent, low-noise, digitally-controlled analog, making them ideally suited to today's most popular microphones.

CO-DEVELOPED WITH FENDER®

Built by the best ears in the business, guitarists and bassists will love the instrument input co-developed with Fender engineers – industry experts who designed them specifically for guitar and bass.
