Playback input monitoring

asked Dec 19, 2017 in Thunderbolt - Quantum by ryanwoody (170 points)
I’m a new owner of the Presonus Quantum. I’ve been using an FP10 for along time, probably near a decade. Is there a way to control the input/playback on the quantum like the input playback knob on the fp10? Also the headphones seem rather low. When I turn up the main knob everything comes up, obviously, but I have to turn my monitors off to have the headphones loud enough because they get to loud and bleed into the recording room. I generally work with hip-hop artists who bring me their beats and I import them into Studio One and play it back while they record.

You can control the preamps within your DAW.  It will take some setup depending on the software you use.

Refer to Section 3.3 of the Quantum manual for the specs.

The low headphone volume may simply be an impedance mismatch.  Some headphones can sound low depending on what their connected to.  An HP amp/distributor or DI box can resolve this most times.
