Bring it. Together.

From input to output, the Zen Q is designed to help you grow to a bigger setup without losing the desktop size format. The ultra-linear preamps and pristine AD/DA conversion give you professional quality in the studio or on the go – all in a compact package.

Add to that its generous connectivity and real-time onboard effects, and you’ll be up to almost any task – whether you want to record, mix, master, stream, or just play.

There is a USB and a Thunderbolt version of the interface available.

Connectivity

All I/O,
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.

Extensive
connectivity

It all starts with the bus-powered connectivity – you only need a USB or Thunderbolt cable and a computer to start the show. The multipurpose inputs and the digital ports allow you to change things on the fly and expand your setup easily.

Console-grade
preamps

For our discrete preamps we use a combination of transistors that results in maximum noise reduction and, most importantly, precise sound capture.

Signature clocking
& conversion

The 64-bit AFC clocking and AD/DA converters give the stereo image more detail and a sense of spaciousness. This gives your recordings stand-out sound quality and makes the Zen Q ideal for mastering.

Sound Quality

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.

Handy
loopback

Session recall

For every individual recording scenario, you can save session files and create exact snapshots of all your settings so you can load them later without losing your progress.

Easy routing

The signal routing is as versatile as it is intuitive, and any configuration can be stored and recalled as a preset.
