Ideal Interface for Mobile or Desktop Recording

The Zoom UAC-2 is a value-packed recording solution for desktop or mobile recording.

Zoom UAC-2 USB 3.0 Audio Interface at a Glance:
  • Sounds great, easy to use
  • MixEfx software mixer makes signal management easy
  • High-end processing delivers better sound
Sounds great, easy to use

The Zoom UAC-2 interface is simple to use, and Sweetwater has been impressed by the high sound quality. A pair of XLR/TRS combo jacks let you hook up mics, instruments, or line signals in seconds. A convenient pair of TRS jacks in the back let you hook up your powered monitors in a flash. Best of all, the UAC-2 uses high-end Burr Brown converters for stellar sound.

MixEfx software mixer makes signal management easy

All parameters of the Zoom UAC-2 are controllable via the MixEfx software application, making it easy to manage your session right from your computer. You can add effects like reverb or echo to offer vocalists a better monitoring experience. You'll also be able to enable a loopback mode that lets you blend the input signals with playback from a computer source, especially useful for live internet streaming.

High-end processing delivers better sound

The UAC-2 not only records, but it also performs four times upsampling of your signal during the analog-to-digital and the digital-to-analog conversion. So, when the sampling rate is set to 44.1kHz, the UAC-2 is processing the signal at 176.4kHz, which helps minimize aliasing noise and increases clarity. In other words, your audio will sound amazing.

Zoom UAC-2 USB 3.0 Audio Interface Features:
  • 2-in, 2-out USB 3.0 audio interface
  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Extremely low latency audio
  • MIDI I/O lets you use MIDI control surfaces and sequence external hardware
  • UAC-2 MixEfx application allows you to add reverb or delay effects to inputs and outputs
  • Phantom power to run your favorite condenser mics
  • Dual XLR/TRS combo input jacks for mic and line sources
  • LED meters to monitor your input and output levels
  • Compact and lightweight design is easy to transport
  • Bus powered directly from your computer
You'll be impressed with the Zoom UAC-2!

Better than the rest!

I've tried the Focusrite, presonus audiobox itwo, Focusrite 2i2, and others. The zoom uac-2 is the best. I use it when I travel for business, and have a zoom uac-8 at home. Tried almost all of them, this is MY choice. Sweetwater is the best!

BEST 2 Channel under $600

I have owned a FocusRite Scarlett, M- Audio Mobile-Pre, Steinberg U-22, and Behringer UMC-202. NONE of these provided accurate results for acoustic guitar. I wasted years of my life recording and then hearing awful playback. I finally tried the Tascam UH-7000, and it did record my acoustic guitar very well, but it was not compatible with my computer and I did not like having to plug the unit into a wall outlet. The ZOOM UAC-2 has very high quality Burr Brown converters, does not need to be plugged into a wall outlet, works perfect with zero delay or latency on my 64 bit Windows 8, and costs only $. It is also USB 3.0 (will work on USB 2.0). Zero glitches and my acoustic guitar recording actually sounds like my acoustic guitar. Sweetwater is impressed with this unit and I am, too.

Great Value!

Low latency, great sounding converters and solid pre-amps make this a must look. Using with a AMD processor standalone system, no problems with Zoom 1.2 drivers and Cakewalk Sonar Platinum. Windows 10 64 bit. Headphone amp could be a bit louder but hey I like to rock! Great investment, great price!!!! Mixfx software is a nice addition!

Awesome sturdy device

I am mainly a producer. But have a backround in funk/jazz drumming. On previous midi din inputs ive used on other interfaces, sometimes 1 hit would trigger 2 hits. On the uac-2 the midi inputs are crisp with my roland td-3, with little delay (i believe this to be more my laptop than interface). The tiny delay is a lot more faster than any other interface i used. The audio is crisp, i can turn the gain 3/4 of the way with no noise (under -55 db). Hi-z inputs are nice for guitar and bass. I've yet to try vocals since its day 2, but im not worried at all. I am very happy with this purchase. High quality product. Especially for the price, but awesome never the less.
Music background: Drums vocals

very low latency

I'm not sure I am testing this correctly but, I used my DAW reaper to send out a tic pulse to a speaker attached to the headphone jack then used a mic on input 1 to record the tic, disabled snap to grid in repear and recorded the tics, and measured the difference in the intial first peaks and it was under one half of a millisecond!! using USB3 port, SSD drive, i7 cpu , windows 7 pro 64bit, 128 sample size, 192000 sample rate. I had used a latency program before and i was getting 15ms using my old lexicon alpha usb2 audio interface. i hear no delays at all using midi off my yamaha keyboard into the UAC-2 to repear running ivoryII italian grand as a VSTi.
