The Zoom AC-2 acoustic creator is an enhanced direct box that offers everything a guitarist needs to deliver their natural acoustic tone wherever they play-from the stage to the studio. The AC-2 automatically restores tone that's lost through acoustic pickups, ensuring that a guitarists live sound is always lush, resonant, and faithful to their chosen instrument.
Essential DI Features
The AC-2 features a high-quality preamp which boosts your signal and helps restore your true acoustic sound. Add its natural-sounding reverb to increase your acoustic’s depth and width, and round out your desired tone with easy 3-band EQ adjustments.
The AC-2's Volume knob
automatically controls the
preamp’s input gain and
output level, taking the
guesswork out of adjusting
sound levels to match. It’s all
you need to make volume control
and setup simple when you’re
playing live on stage.
The AC-2 is also equipped
with an anti-feedback button
that automatically locates
and eliminates problem
frequencies —an essential
for live performances.
All The Right Places
The AC-2’s balanced XLR output (with ground/lift and pre/post control) allows you to easily connect to any PA mixing board or studio console. It also includes two ¼” outputs for mono or stereo connection to amps, headphones, or audio interfaces.
Tune on the Spot
The AC-2’s built-in tuner with its large LED meter lets you easily see when you’re in tune.
The Unique Sound
of a 12 String
There’s no mistaking the beautiful, shimmering sound of a 12 string guitar. With the AC-2, your guitar will retain its natural, chorus-filled tone whenever you're on stage.
You can also add 9 dB of gain with
the tap of your foot using the AC-2's
boost function, allowing you to switch
from strumming to finger-picking
without ever losing a note.
Three Ways to Power Up
Since the AC-2 is designed to enhance your acoustic performances in all environments, it offers a variety of power options. Two AA batteries provide up to three hours of continuous power. Alternatively, you can use the Zoom AD-16 AC adapter for power, or the micro USB port to bus power the AC-2 via your computer.
