Fairlight tells us that QUANTUM is a complete audio post production system combining the power of their hardware and software, recording, editing, mixing, plug-ins, MIDI and video with a fully integrated, 12 or 24 fader console perfectly suitable for film, video and music studio and post production facilities. Here's a full description directly from Fairlight...
QUANTUM offers pure control through the fast and ergonomic operation of its tactile control surface with faders, switches, knobs and jogger wheel, augmented with touch screen and mouse based functions. QUANTUM's motorised faders combine with a dual row of rotary encoders to provide touch-triggered automation of all mixing parameters. Within easy reach, the system touch screens complement the physical controls with multiple switching options and project navigation. QUANTUM includes an embedded Edit controller utilizing Fairlight's unique Picture Keys. These instantly adapt their appearance and function for easy navigation with fewer keystrokes. The control surface literally reinvents itself for each task you undertake, presenting the commands you need at the right time. Fairlight's new iCan technology, with drag-and-drop Layout Editor, allows audio engineers to design their own button layouts for specialised functions. Also available are flexible mounting systems to attach speakers and screens from the rear of the console.
