Check out the Zoom TAC-2 Thunderbolt Audio Interface!

We here at Waltons believe this is one to watch. The power and speed of Thunderbolt is sure to change the face of audio recording. The TAC-2 not only records, but it also performs four times up sampling 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 TAC-2 is processing the signal at 176.4kHz, which helps minimize aliasing noise and increases clarity. In other words, your audio will sound amazing.

Apple’s Thunderbolt connectivity has opened up a world of professional recording possibilities. Thunderbolt is five times faster than USB 3.0 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and FireWire 800. This gives you the speed to record and monitor with virtually no latency. In fact, Thunderbolt is so fast, it isn’t bothered by computer jitter, so you don’t need a master clock. No more hunting for an extra power outlet because Thunderbolt is bus powered from your computer. It even gets enough juice to provide your mics with phantom power. Super fast, super stable, and bus powered – that’s Thunderbolt.

Follow the link below to view more information and full specifications list.
