USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Audio Converter for Mac and PC

The UAC-8 from Zoom is an 18x20 USB 3.0 audio interface that offers near zero latency and up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution. The robust housing makes the interface perfect for studio and field recording of microphones and instruments, for onstage playback and audio streaming, and with its dedicated MIDI input and output connectors, it can even serve as a stable MIDI interface.

The UAC-8 provides a wide variety of both analog and digital connectors. 8 front panel combo XLR/TRS inputs accept mic- and line-level signals, and you can even plug instruments directly into Inputs 1 and 2. Dedicated input gain controls and Clip LEDs make it easy to set optimum input levels, and a Phantom Power switch enables the use of condenser microphones.

OUTPUTS
The UAC-8 has dual balanced analog TRS output jacks for connection to monitors, and there are also 8 discrete balanced TRS analog line outputs for multichannel monitoring or connection to external effects devices. A large front-panel Output knob offers fast control over output level, and there are two independent " stereo headphone jacks, each with its own dedicated volume control, for private monitoring.

DIGITAL I/O
8 ADAT and stereo S/PDIF digital inputs/outputs allow for the connection of up to 10 external channels, and built-in Word Clock enables easy integration into any system. In addition, MIDI In and Out is provided to allow interfacing with devices such as electronic keyboards and drum machines.

USB 3.0 SUPERSPEED
The USB 3.0 SuperSpeed transfer protocol used by the UAC-8, with a speed of 2.0 ms roundtrip @ 96 kHz / 32 samples, is ten times faster than USB 2.0 and six times faster than FireWire 800. That not only ensures low latency, it provides a data stream that's unaffected by computer jitter (slight variations in timing), so there's no need to connect an external master clock source.
