I recently purchased a new Quantum 2 interface. I'm looking to setup an alternate headphone mix from the Line Outputs on the back (3/4) to my headphone amp. I want to keep the headphone mix on the front as well. On my previous interface, I would setup this via the Digital Mixer; however, routing is limited in this model. I'm using PreSonus Studio One Pro, but it would be nice for a mixer setting that will work in any DAW (i.e. Logic Pro X as well). The headphone amp I am trying to drive with the alternate mix is a ********* HA400 headphone amplifier that only has a single TRS input (not separate L/R input channel inputs). What are my options on doing this? I'm new to Studio One. Thanks!

Here's is my current setup:

  • Apple MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)
  • OS X 10.12.6
  • PreSonus Studio One Pro
  • PreSonus Quantum 2 (Firmware 1.1-11)
  • PreSonus Universal Control 2.4 for Mac
  • ********* HA400 headphone amplifer

Check out the video. It goes in depth on it but you will be going to 5:57 where the breakdown for what the function does. You can easily see where you have to route the channel(s). Once you get it figured out, it's a piece of cake. For the headphone amp, you will need a Y Cable, 1/4" TS Male-Dual 1/4" TS Male or a Y Cable (tip sleeve) or a 1/4" TRS Male-Dual 1/4" TRS Male (tip ring sleeve) That will solve your issue.
