Zoom TAC-2 and new iMac 2017

Hi guys !

i wonder if there is anybody out there who successfully connected his Zoom TAC-2 via an TB3-TB2-Adpater (from Apple) with a new iMac (2017 Model with only TB3/USB-C). I tried it but without success. I tried it on macOS Sierra, the light on Zoom TAC-2 flashes shortly but disconnects then without being recognized by macOS. :cry:
Perhaps somebody got it and could give hints or a how to do !

Thanx in advance

Jazzman

Check for the latest drivers, associated software, or firmware updates at the Zoom site.

Under the Apple menu/ About this Mac/ System Report, check under Thunderbolt.
Does your machine detect and identify the device.

If yes, open the Audio MIDI setup utility ( found in the utilities folder )
Can you select and configure ?

Hi,

no, it is not detected as a device, thus i can't configure it. When i installed the zoom-drivers, they were the latest drivers (for sierra). No further software was available.
You did not say directly in your post, that you were able to install the Zoom Tac 2 with that hardware, so i assume, u do not have TB3-Apple Hardware. But thanx for that suggestions :thumbup:

Now i got a major update for those who are interested:

i got it ! :bouncy:

Took the new drivers form their website and followed a tip by zoom:

plug in first the apple-tb3-tb-adapter, then plugin the tb-cable and last plug in the zoom tac-2...and... it worked ! Don't really know, what it was, but at least i am happy !

Btw, the latency went down to 1,5 ms with 64 samples at 44.100 hz !!!

Cheers

I don't own a TAC-2, just doing general troubleshooting.

Good news for all of us with Tbolt 2 kit and facing a future upgrade to something with Tbolt 3/USB C. Thanks.

Hey you all!

I am absolutely frustrated. Been trying for hours, following all kind of tips and leads.
Installed, uninstalled & reinstalled the last driver. Updated the TAC-2R firmware...

Also did the cable plug one by one thing. No way.

It still does not work.
My TBolt does not recognize anything connected.

The Zoom works, because I tested it myself in other computer.

This one is a MacBook Pro 2018 High Sierra 10.13.4

Please, help! & Thanks a lot in advance....

What's the result of doing this? If you can't see the device then it's probably a hardware rather than a driver problem.
