OVERVIEW

Near-zero latency and fast Thunderbolt connectivity.

The T2 from Resident Audio is the ultimate compact interface for recording or performing with your laptop. At home or on the road, the T2 provides you with two channels of I/O with support for up to 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution audio at near-zero latency, and Thunderbolt connectivity that will move your sessions at lightning speed. The T2 is lightweight and portable, and its fully bus-powered so there' no reason to carry around power cords or batteries with you. Dual combo XLR/TRS input connectors allow you to plug in microphones, line-level sources, and even instruments. The T2 can also serve as an ultra-stable MIDI interface, ensuring precise synchronization between your audio and MIDI tracks.

Why Thunderbolt?
Developed by Intel Labs in collaboration with Apple, Thunderbolt is the most advanced input/output (I/O) protocol available today. Twice as fast as USB 3.0, twenty times faster than USB 2.0 and twelve times faster than Firewire 800, it provides unparalleled audio performance with near-zero latency.

Feature Rich
The T2 provides two combo XLR/¼" inputs with switchable phantom power for the connection of microphones, instruments and line-level devices, as well as dual balanced TRS outputs and a dedicated headphone output.

Tactile gain controls with three-color wraparound LEDs allow optimum levels to be set quickly and easily, even in low-light onstage environments. MIDI In and Out allow the T2 to be used as a MIDI interface with superb clocking accuracy.
A Big Knob volume control sets the level of connected headphones as well as overall monitor level. The T2 also has a Smart Monitoring feature, which allows you to easily switch between stereo and mono monitoring.

Fidelity Plus
The T2 provides crisp, clear sound. It allows you to record and play back audio with full 24-bit resolution, at sampling rates up to 96 kHz. And because Thunderbolt technology allows increased power capacity, we're able to equip the T2 with high-end electronic components that would be unusable with USB.

Software Stability
The software drivers for the T2 have been programmed by some of the best engineers in the industry. They've been specifically designed to ensure rock-solid performance and minimal CPU overhead, allowing your computer to focus on things like effects processing and monitoring. All T-Series interfaces support ASIO, CoreAudio, and Windows Audio Session API, allowing them to be used with most Macintosh and Windows computers* that provide a Thunderbolt port.

Ready For The Road
If you're a performing artist using a laptop computer onstage, you won't find a more perfect interface than the lightweight, compact T2. It provides combo input connectors that can accept both XLR and 1/4" jacks and is fully bus-powered”no AC cord or batteries required”allowing the T2 to easily be integrated into any live performance rig.

What's more, it's housed in a sturdy aluminum/acrylic 1/3 U rack mountable chassis that can stand up to the wear and tear of an artist on the go. (Mounting hardware not included).

    Comments about Resident Audio T2 2-Channel Thunderbolt Interface:

    I was skeptical buying a Thunderbolt interface at this price but after using it for some time, I let a friend borrow it to see what he thought. We both agree; zero latency. I plug this little guy into my MacBook Pro and use Bias FX. Simple to use and no lag at a great price point. It's a winner.
