Monitoring my guitar through the Quantum

asked Jan 6 in Thunderbolt - Quantum by Taylord (150 points)
I recently purchased a Quantum and haven't been able how to hear my guitar when my guitar processor is plugged into the front inputs of the quantum. So do you have to have a DAW open and a track armed for direct monitoring to be able to hear back at all times?

I would very much like to know this too!

Though for me its about synths. Can I plug my stereo-out cables from my synth into the quantum, turn the quantum on, connect speakers to quantum, and then hear the synth??

Or do I have to have a computer connected? If so, do I then have to have Studio One 3 open, to hear my synth?

I can't for the life of me work out in what scenario you would want to do this. Quote from Sound On Sound magazine review:

 "if you want to hear what’s coming into any of the Quantum’s inputs, you can only do so via your recording software.."

There is no internal mixer for Quantum.

To monitor input you will need to use a DAW.
