Quantum 225: Compact and Robust

Following on from Quantum 338, Quantum 225 brings the power of Quantum in a compact and robust worksurface.

Quantum 225 incorporates all of the new design features introduced in 2020 with the Quantum 338, and of course uses three large-scale seventh generation FPGAs to continue the unrivaled Quantum legacy. The console merges tried and tested workflows with immense processing muscle, bold innovation and all of the Quantum features, giving you the ultimate tool set.

Under The Hood

Quantum 225 brings a 17-inch, 1000 nit, high brightness multitouch screen with both a meter bridge and soft quick select buttons for quick and intuitive operation. 41 individual TFT LCDs displaying channel information and metering, bank information, macros and more guide you immediately to the controls you need. Plus, 25 100mm touch sensitive faders in two banks of 12 plus a dedicated user-assignable master fader with high resolution metering.

But there’s more… The defining feature of the Quantum 225 is the ability to customise the left worksurface with the Mounting Bracket. Mount a laptop for creative control, or a KLANG:kontroller for immersive control. You could even mount an extra screen to show your KLANG:app, plugin computer, console overview screen, or it could even display the channel screen for your left bank of faders, transforming your Quantum 225 into a dual screen console at an unbelievable price point!

With a maximum of 72 input channels with 36 busses and a 12 x 12 matrix, all with full channel processing, Quantum 225 brings Quantum to a wider user base. Also included as standard are Mustard Processing channel strips, Spice Rack plugin style native FPGA processing options, Nodal Processing and True Solo.

I/O

Despite being a smaller format console, there hasn’t been any sacrifice when it comes to connectivity.

Local I/O: Quantum 225’s local I/O includes 8 analogue inputs, 8 analogue outputs and 2 AES I/O (4 channels)

MADI: Quantum 225 offers 2 redundant MADI in/out at 48kHz, which can also be configured as 4 MADI I/O. At 96kHz this acts as 2 MADI I/O with full channel counts.

Optocore: The Quantum 225 offers the option to add a single or dual loops of Optocore. On each loop, which is 504 channels of audio; there can be up to 14 DiGiCo racks, or a combination of racks and tie-lines around the loop. With dual Optocore loops, that’s 1,008 Optocore channels of audio and 28 racks running.

UBMADI: In addition, the engine has a 48-channel UBMADI, so you can connect any laptop via USB and get 48 channels of recording and playback.

DMI: We have also incorporated two dedicated DMI slots to accommodate the growing family of DiGiCo DMI card options. Allowing the console connectivity to be configured for the demand of the tour or event, you could plug in a Dante module, or the latest automatic mic mixing module. Each dedicated DMI slot provides you with an additional 64 x 64 I/O.

Waves: There is also an option to add Waves connectivity if you want to utilise SoundGrid processing, giving you a 64 x 64 additional I/O.
