Zoom AMS-44 Audio Interface for Music and Streaming
RECORD & STREAM WITH EASE
AMS Audio Interfaces are designed for musicians who want to record music with their DAW or easily livestream on platforms like YouTube and Twitch, without all the typical complications.
AMS-44 | 4-In, 4-Out
Whether you’re recording or streaming, the AMS-44 keeps your setup simple. It features four XLR/TRS combo inputs along with Zoom’s high-performance, low-noise preamps. The interface also includes two headphone outputs and two TRS outputs for external monitors.
With their onboard hardware switches, AMS-44 is designed to simplify common streaming challenges without the need for additional software.
LITTLE SWITCH, BIG STREAMS
Toggle from recording to livestreaming with the Music/ Streaming Switch. When in Music mode, each input acts independently with individual gain control. It also sends separate mixes to each headphone output.
When in Streaming mode all inputs are combined into one signal to work seamlessly with your streaming software.
Use the Direct Monitor Switch to send the input signal directly to your headphones while routing the same signal to your DAW or streaming software.
LOOP IT BACK
The Loopback Switch combines the input audio with playback from your computer and routes it to your streaming software. This is perfect for adding background music to your stream or singing live with an instrumental track.
All three AMS interfaces can be powered from your PC or Mac via USB-C. Use external power when working from a tablet or mobile phone.
Additionally, the AMS-24 and AMS-44 can also use two AA batteries.
PLUG IT IN...
Use the AMS Series on any device thanks to its support for Mac and PC, along with iOS and Android devices.
The AMS Series is designed to integrate seamlessly with commonly used software, apps and platforms.
In Streaming mode, connect with your audience by streaming to popular platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Instagram, and Patreon.
In Music mode, record with software like Adobe Audition, Pro Tools, Cubase, and Garage Band.
