all the time
With its pairs of headphone outputs, preamps, and instrument inputs, the Zen Q interface was built with collaboration in mind. Flexible routing and switchable inputs unlock a wealth of possible setups. Four simultaneous Hi-Z instruments and two pairs of monitors? No problem. Four balanced analog outboard inserts? You got it.
If you need even more inputs, hook up any ADAT-compatible preamp with up to eight additional channels, and you’re ready to record a full band live. The stereo input and output over S/PDIF can be used to add an outboard effect, record a digital hardware synth, or send a high-quality clocking signal to the rest of your studio.
Discrete console-grade preamps
The Zen Q audio interface packs two professional-grade microphone preamps with 65db of gain and individual phantom power. Their ultra-linear, discrete circuit topology is on par with the preamps found in legendary consoles at the world’s best studios.
The clock you can’t beat
Taken from our award-winning master clocks, the AFC™ (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology ensures professional, low-jitter AD/DA conversion up to 192 kHz / 24 bit. This makes listening, mixing, and even mastering with the Zen Q an absolute audiophile experience. From analog to digital and back, your sound meets nothing but the best signal path.
