Inputs and Outputs

The Resident Audio T2 is equipped with dual balanced TRS outputs and a dedicated headphone output, in addition to two combo XLR / 1/4'' inputs with dedicated trim controls and switchable phantom power, allowing for the connection of microphones, instruments and line-level devices.

The TRS outputs allow you to simply plug the T2 directly into your monitors during studio use, and straight into the soundboard for live use. Additionaly, MIDI In and Out connectors allow the T2 to be used as a MIDI interface with an ultra-stable clock that keeps all your sequencers and drum machines perfectly locked to audio playback.

Controls

The knobs of the T2 not only glide smoothly but also face slightly upwards and feature wraparound LED signal indicators allowing you to set optimal input levels even in low-light onstage environments. A dedicated INST/LINE switch allows you to instantly change between instrument or line level input and can also be used for Smart Monitoring functionality; The headphone output can be switched from stereo to mono, allowing for greater monitoring convenience - handy for vocalists and DJs, and can even be utilised when microphones are connected.

An Input Mix control allows you to blend live input signal wth the playback coming from your computer, and a large volume control allows for quick adjustment of the connected headphone and overall monitoring levels.

Thunderbolt® Connectivity

Thunderbolt® is the most advanced input/output protocol available; twice as fast as USB 3.0 and twelve times faster than Firewire 800, it provides unparalleled audio performance with near-zero latency. The T2 provides crisp, clear sound and allows for recording and playback of audio with full 24-bit resolution at sampling rates of up to 96kHz. Thunderbolt® speed, combined with rock solid T2 driver performance ensures that your audio and MIDI tracks always line up perfectly, with no delay.
