Thunderbolt is the interconnection technology of the future. More than twice as fast as USB 3.0 and twenty times faster than USB 2.0, it allows digital signal to be routed to and from your computer at astonishingly high speeds for virtually instantaneous audio recording and playback. The higher bus power carried by Thunderbolt also enables the use of high-end electronic components for better sound quality, plus stable phantom power for connected condenser microphones.
Enhanced software functionality
Zoom's free TAC-2 MixEfx Macintosh application enables you to boost the functionality of your TAC-2 further still. It allows you to set mix parameters and add high-quality effects such as reverb and echo; you can also apply a low cut filter, do phase reversal, or set AUTO GAIN for each input independently. In addition, there's a LOOPBACK function that blends the input signal with the playback signal for zero latency, as well as three memory slots for saving user settings with quick recall.
