ZOOM's UAC-2 is a 2x2 USB 3.0 audio interface with near-zero latency and resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz. The interface's compact and rugged chassis makes it ideal for studio and field recording of microphones and instruments, onstage playback, and audio streaming, and this audio accessory can even function as a dependable MIDI interface thanks to its dedicated MIDI input and output ports.The unit has two balanced 1/4" outputs and two XLR/TRS combo inputs with microphone preamps. With condenser microphones, phantom power is accessible. Inputs 1 and 2 also have a Hi-Z instrument input for guitars and basses. A dedicated volume control is accessible for the headphone output, and a free Mac application is available for tweaking mix parameters and adding effects like reverb and echo. The interface is powered via the bus, but it can also be powered by the AD-14 power adapter. A USB 3.0 cable and a Steinberg Cubase LE software licence card are included with the UAC-2.
