Zooms powerful new high-speed audio interface, the UCA-8, has been designed from the ground up to deliver the speed, quality, and versatility you need for your studio. Featuring a 19″ rackmountable design, an impressive 18 inputs and 20 outputs, connection to your Mac or Windows computer via USB 3.0, and can even interface with your iPad.* Plug in a microphone, line-level device, or instrument and start bringing your ideas to life, or take the UAC-8 onstage to enable high-res audio playback, all the way up to 24-bit/192 kHz.
The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 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.
