Zoom U24 USB Audio Interface

The Zoom U24 USB Audio Interface is a compact 2-in/4-out interface that provides you with all the essential features you need for recording and performing with high resolution audio, anywhere you go. The U24 offers outstanding sound thanks to the same high-quality, low-noise mic preamps as the acclaimed H5 and H6 Handy Recorders. The U24 can be connected to your PC, Mac or iPad via USB and record mics, instruments and more. Small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, the Zoom U24 comes equipped with all the inputs, outputs and features you need to record 24-bit/96kHz audio anywhere.

Outstanding Recording and Playback

Inspired by Zoom’s H-series recorders, the U24 is equipped with the same high-performance, low-noise mic preamps (-119.5 dB EIN). These preamps provide the U24 with the ability to both record and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/96kHz. Additionally, the U24 can also be used as a studio-quality headphone amp for listening to your favourite music in full fidelity.

All The Essential Inputs and Outputs

The U24 features all of the essential inputs and outputs required for streamlined, convenient recording. Two combo inputs with independent gain knobs and multi-colour level indicators allow you to connect microphones, keyboards, mixers and much more. 48V phantom power can be supplied toboth inputs, while input 1 supports Hi-Z for connecting guitars, basses and other passive instruments. The MIDI input and output jacks are suitable for connecting a vast range of devices including controllers, synths, drum machines and more. Seperate TRS and RCA output connectors provide multiple options for connecting DJ mixers, monitors and other equipment. Finally, the independent headphone output has a dedicated volume control for complete flexibility while monitoring your audio.

Your Mix, Your Way

Perfect for dialing in the perfect mix with zero latency, the U24 allows you to balance the cue and main output signals when you’re DJ’ing, or create a mix of click track and main out signals during live performances. Each connector and control knob has been strategically positioned to ensure fast, convenient access with total ease.

Create More with Your U24

Each Zoom U24 comes supplied with a free copy of Ableton Live 9 Live. When you combine both the U24 interface with the software, you have everything required by any modern music creator.
