YOUR ACOUSTIC SOUND—AMPLIFIED

Amplify your acoustic sound with the Zoom AC-2 Acoustic Creator. The AC-2 is a DI (direct box) that encompasses all you need to deliver natural guitar tone on stage or in the studio. The AC-2 automatically restores tone lost through acoustic pickups, so your sound is always lush, resonant, and faithful to the instrument you have in hand. Zoom adds the new AC-2 Acoustic Creator to its line of effects boxes designed for acoustic-electric guitarists looking to amplify their sound on stage or in the studio, with a true acoustic sound. This enhanced DI box offers advanced sound remodeling to help restore tones lost through using conventional acoustic pickups. It also features a high-quality pre-amp, which boosts your signal while keeping your sound lush, resonant, and true to your instrument.

GENERATING ACOUSTIC TONES 

With 16 source guitar presets, the AC-2 recovers the sonic characteristics of a variety of guitar types and body shapes. You can choose from dreadnought, upright bass, nylon strings, 12 string, and more. Simply select your guitar of choice, then choose piezo or magnetic pickup. From there, the AC-2 is ready to reproduce and amplify your guitar’s tone with complete accuracy. The unit allows you to further shape your tone with a 3-band EQ and an onboard reverb that adds ambiance to your sound. A foot-switchable Boost gives you 9 dB of gain, perfect for highlighting solos or switching from strumming to finger picking, keeping your level even. There is also a built-in tuner with large LEDs that makes it easy to tune in dark environments, and an Anti-Feedback function that locates and eliminates problem frequencies, affording you greater peace of mind when performing live. 

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. The AC-2’s built-in tuner with its large LED meter lets you easily see when you’re in tune.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. 

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.
