The ZOOM TAC-2R is a superb two channel Thunderbolt audio interface with virtually zero latency and up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution. The compact and robust housing makes the interface perfect for studio and field recording of microphones and instruments, for onstage playback and audio streaming. With dedicated MIDI input and output connectors, the ZOOM TAC-2R can even serve as a stable MIDI interface.

Take your performance to the next level. Use the TAC-2R onstage to get the best sound quality from your Apple Laptop. With its Thunderbolt speed, high quality converters, and rugged chassis, you can trust the TAC-2R to deliver superior audio everytime.

Enhance the audio you enjoy everyday. Plug your headphones or speakers into the TAC-2R instead of your computer's audio outputs and enjoy streamed high-resolution audio—all the way up to 24-bit/192kHz—in true Hi-Fidelity.

The TAC-2R gives you all the tools you need to create great audio. Flexible routing options allow you to use a variety of microphones and instruments, with high-quality preamps to ensure crystal clear sound. There's even Direct Monitoring for zero latency overdubbing.

The TAC-2R serves as an ultra-stable MIDI interface too, allowing you to use your electronic keyboards and controllers as well as sound generating devices such as synthesizers and drum machines. The extreme speed and low latency of Thunderbolt ensure that your audio and MIDI tracks line up perfectly, every time.

MP3s can sound good, but high resolution audio files—24/96 or 24/192 WAVs—sound way better. Now you can enjoy streamed high resolution files in full fidelity by connecting your computer to the TAC-2 via Thunderbolt and using the TAC-2 headphone jack instead of the one on your computer. Alternatively, you can use the rear panel balanced TRS outputs to connect the TAC-2 to your speakers.

ZOOM TAC-2 Thunderbolt: The ultimate in high-speed connectivity

More than twice as fast as USB 3.0 and twenty times faster than USB 2.0 and twelve times faster than Firewire 800! Thunderbolt is the interconnection technology of the future. Co-developed by Apple and Intel Labs, it allows signal to be transferred at an incredibly fast 10 gigabits per second, which means virtually no latency. Thunderbolt interfaces such as the TAC-2 are also unaffected by computer jitter (slight variations in timing), so there's no need to connect an external master clock source.



ZOOM TAC-2R Broadcast Quality professional recording power at your fingertips


In addition, Thunderbolt carries 10 watts/18 volts of power (as compared to the 2.5 watts/ 5 volts carried by USB 2.0)—enough to provide stable phantom power. This also allows the use of high-end components such as the Burr Brown PCM4202 analog-to-digital converter and AKM AK4396 digital-to-analog converter in the TAC-2R.

The TAC-2R performs 4-times upsampling during both analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion. In other words, when the sampling frequency is set to 44.1kHz or 48kHz, the TAC-2R processes the signal at high resolution 176.4kHz or 192kHz. For A/D conversion, this means less aliasing noise; for D/A conversion, this means increased clarity and fidelity.

ZOOM TAC-2R Make the MIDI Conection . . .

The TAC-2R serves as an ultra-stable MIDI interface too, allowing you to use your electronic keyboards and controllers as well as sound generating devices such as synthesisers and drum machines. The extreme speed and low latency of Thunderbolt ensure that your audio and MIDI tracks line up perfectly, every time.

ZOOM TAC-2 MixEfx

TAC-2 MixEfx is a free Macintosh application designed specially for the TAC-2. With TAC-2 MixEfx, you can set mix parameters and add high-quality effects such as reverb and echo. Other features include a low cut filter, phase reverse and AUTO GAIN control for each input.

There's also a LOOPBACK function that allows you to blend the input signal and playback signal for zero latency. TAC-2 MixEfx has three memory slots for saving user settings with quick recall.
