The U-CONTROL UCA222 from Behringer is a low-cost solution for getting audio in and out of a computer. The USB 1.1 interface is USB bus powered and features two analog RCA phono inputs for connecting any line-level device, such as a mixer or tape deck, and two analog RCA phono outputs for connecting active speakers or studio monitors.

The interface also provides a stereo S/PDIF output on an optical connector. Headphone monitoring is via a stereo mini-jack with a dedicated volume control. No special setup or additional drivers are required, and wide computer operating system compatibility is available for both the Mac and Windows platforms.

    The Behringer UCA222 allows you to record signal from an analog source directly into your computer. I use mine for music recording and it's a winner. No installation is necessary. You plug your source and monitoring into the left and right in and left and right out stereo RCA jacks, plus the usb into your computer and you're done. The UCA222 also has a headphone jack and headphone volume control. No noise, no signal loss and such low latency as to be imperceptible make this device almost perfect. I would like to see a 1/4" headphone jack versus the 1/8" but that's my only complaint. This thing is killer.

    I purchased this to digitize the music I have on cassette tapes. Having downloaded the latest version of Audacity, I tried this unit using the output from a walkman. Am quite satisfied with the quality and it serves the purpose for which I purchased this device.
    Note that you will have to download some device drivers from the Behringer webpage for the USB output to be used properly. It was not a simple plug and play as advertised. You also have to get a plug-in application to save files as MP3s.
    Overall, a very useful product.
    Similar to my previous experiences, purchasing this from B&H was a breeze. It was delivered within three days of placing order in good shape.

        The UCA222-USB was purchased for use in saving analog audio recordings in the MP3 format. Very easy to set up, basically plug-n-play. Used with Audacity software the digital audio interface worked with no issues or problems. Good way to digitize old analog recordings from tape or other line level devices. This will be very useful in saving my vinyl record collection onto a digital device.

          I like the item, it does what it says it will do, it takes analog signals and turns them digital. I use it to record karaoke and it is pretty good, I get some hiss on my system, but I am sure it is my setup of cheap wires use of a older laptop.

            As a professional musician & DJ I use this as an audio interface for my computer when recording music and for Live DJ and Live Performances. The sound to the human ear is as good as Audio interfaces in the price range two hundred dollars. Has a seperate output for a headphones. some me 8 times the cost don't. Easy to transport. Compact and affordable I carry a second as a backup. I have been using it for four years... never a problem.

            Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 - USB 1.1 Digital Audio Interface:

            Our facility found some issues with the latest Mac Pros. Namely, they no longer have an optical audio output. The UCA222 is a very cost effective, easy to use solution. Simply plug it into the USB port of the Mac and you have instant SPDIF optical outputs from the Mac internal audio. Great solution if you want to pipe audio from your Mac to an Avid HD I/O and skip all the headaches of aggregate I/O.

                I use this interface with my Chromebook. The greatest feature is that no drivers are necessary for this to work. Just double check the settings in the audio program/plug-in/Chrome extension that you are using, and you're off! It truly is plug-and-play. And for $, you can't really beat that. I do wish there was a stereo 1/4" input in addition to the RCA jacks. But with a few adapters, this setup works just fine.

                  I bought this product to transfer some old casette tapes to digital format for use on a company website. When I took it out of the box, I simply connect the tape deck to it using an RCA cable, fired up Audacity on my computer, and it transferred without any problem. I also used the headphone jack on the UCA222 to make sure the audio was coming through fine, and that helped as well. For my rather simple need, this was a much easier and much cheaper option than buying a casette deck with a built-in USB.

                      I simply needed 2-channel RCA audio output from an iMac to a home stereo. I already had line-level cable with wall jacks set up from initial installation, many years ago. I did not want to utilize the shared ground of RCA 3.5mm mini jack on the iMac.. All I had seen from searching was more DJ-level boxes at much higher prices ... until I corresponded with a responsive and helpful B&H rep. He directed me to this unit , which is exactly what I needed, at a great price. Thanks!

After configuring it via my DAW, it works great. Sound quality is superb. I am very pleased with the purchase.

                            I purchased this to digitize the music I have on cassette tapes. Having downloaded the latest version of Audacity, I tried this unit using the output from a walkman. Am quite satisfied with the quality and it serves the purpose for which I purchased this device.
                            Note that you will have to download some device drivers from the Behringer webpage for the USB output to be used properly. It was not a simple plug and play as advertised. You also have to get a plug-in application to save files as MP3s.
                            Overall, a very useful product.
                            Similar to my previous experiences, purchasing this from B&H was a breeze. It was delivered within three days of placing order in good shape.

                              the only problem is I cannot understand how to use it. The sound out of the cassette recorder is too strong and there is no dial on the recorder to lower it. Consequently the distortion cannot be eliminated. Needs instruction book for electronic "dummies' like me

                                Use the interface instead of onboard sound on a Lenova laptop with windows 7. Plugged it in and it worked, no problem. Records with monitoring slightly delayed. Good value.

                                    I got the 202 (previous model, only color and some software bundle differ) and this works great getting sound from my PS3 (multi out phono) into a retina Mac Book Pro - exactly what I needed.This way I can run a small program called LineIn to pass thru the sound from the PS3 to my gaming headset, also running Skype.

                                      I use it to interface an iMac with a sound system through the usb port. The amplifier approximately doubles the volume output to a set of Sony 2.1 speakers and reduces line noise as compared to the headphone output from the iMac. We plan to also use the low latency feature for recording live instruments. Very nice product.

                                        The product is noisy, putting much more noise into the audio stream compared to more expensive products I have used. It does what it says for an amazingly low price, but I would not recommend it for professional use.
