Zoom UAC-8 overview

  • 1Description

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 unit features eight XLR/TRS combo inputs with microphone preamps and ten balanced 1/4" outputs. Phantom power is available for use with condenser microphones. The UAC-8 also offers a full complement of digital I/O, including ADAT, S/PDIF, and word clock. Additionally, inputs 1 and 2 offer a Hi-Z instrument input for guitars and bass. The two headphone outputs have dedicated volume controls and a free Mac application is available for setting mix parameters and adding effects such as reverb and echo. The UAC-8 ships with a power supply, USB 3.0 cable, and a Steinberg Cubase LE software license card.
