    Behringer UMC204HD reviews

    U-PHORIA UMC204HD - USB 2.0 Audio Interface is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the other ones I tried I tried a presonus audio box, but it just glitched all the time in windows 10... I tried the steinberg ur22 and i didnt monitor in stereo only mono... This thing just worked... I am happy with the converters everything sounds so clear with very little hiss... The quality I hear in stereo monitor is the same on playback... Took me 10 minutes to get everything balanced out and set up but I love it and for the kickazz price i will buy the same unit if this one ever craps out, no hesitation...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Audio interface for home studios! This unit worked right away out of the box. Just installed the latest drivers from Behringer and nothing holding me back. The few DAWs I have, found it right away and started recording without a hitch. Audio quality sounds great to me and I tend to be picky trying out various headphones and monitors with it. Best feature is able to blend palyback and live inputs. Really helps to dial in the blend that you want to work with. For such a low price I was skeptical, but it is well built and the midas sudo preamps really give you a clear sound image. Couldn't be happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent device!!! By sight product very qualitative. It is made soundly. Regulators turn very easily and smoothly. In a product there is a possibility of connection in a rupture of various devices, for example, of a sequencer. There are exits for connection of monitors. An exit to headphones with the separate regulator of loudness. It is possible to connect the microphones demanding phantom food to the device. For this purpose there is a switch of 48 volts. After connection it is necessary to download from the website of the producer of the driver. Installation of drivers doesn't cause any problems. After installation of drivers has turned on the music and was surprised to quality of sounding. Excellent product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't get easier than this I'm a Mac user that needed a solution to my MBox no longer working once I upgraded to OS 10.11 El Capitan. This is it! No driver needed. Plugged it in selected it in System Preferences and I'm back in business! Excellent quality. Simple solution to a big problem!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a pleasant surprise I purchased this for field work, (not wishing to make a high price purchase for something that might get knocked around).� However, what a pleasant surprise.� This unit is very quiet, comparable to my Yamaha MG12UX mixer.� The unit is well laid out and intuitive, without reading the manual I was up and recording in five minutes.� A strong metal build, small footprint and confident device.� �Note:� You will need to install a driver from Behringer for Windows 7/10, (I'm using Win 7). Happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality, Low Price Audio Interface When my M-Audio ProFire 610 began exhibiting noise in one of the channels I looked into a repair of it, as I really enjoyed the incredible performance of that unit. Finding the estimated repair was $125, it gave me pause knowing the Behringer offered great value for the money. After looking at extensive reviews of the U-Phoria UMC204HD, I decided to take the plunge. After unpacking, I was pleased to find the quality of construction was equal to that of audio interfaces costing twice and more. The controls operate smoothly and the plug and play operation was flawless. I tried it with GarageBand and it was recognized instantly. Operation was invisible, adding nothing to the recording. If I were to quibble with anything, It's that the UMC204HD offers only a single headphone out. This is a drawback, when there are additional individuals that need to hear the mix. Fortunately, I was already in possession of a Behringer HA400 MicroAmp, a 4-channel stereo headphone distribution amplifier. This surpasses my old ProFire's 2 headphone out, allowing even more flexibility. These are inexpensive units and I highly recommend picking one up to compliment the Behringer interface. If you're thinking of grabbing one of these, I strongly recommend that you do so. The accompanying image gives you a size comparison of the ProFire (bottom), the UMC204HD (middle) and the HA400 (top).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plenty of capabilities The U-Phoria does many things: first, it is a USB interface for audio in and out; secondly, it is a mini-mic mixer. As a mixer it has volume controls for either two mics or line inputs. It has mono, so you can split an input into two outputs, plus the USB interface. That's three outputs! Very practical device. For example, in a webcast, a mic can feed the webcast while also feeding a PA system and a recorder. Downside: Windows 7 and 10 did not automatically have a driver. I had to download a driver. Once installed, I had to reboot and on another occaison I had to fuss with the driver. On the Mac side, the device was recognized immediately and worked the first time. The second time I tried, I had to plug and unplug the driver. For both Windows and Mac, these are minor problems, but worth being aware.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price, preamps more noisy than other interfaces This interface is a fraction of the price of similar interfaces, such as the Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, the NI Komplete Audio 6, the Roland Rubix24, and the PreSonus Studio 2|6). So, the question is, what is the catch? Well, two: 1) This interface is frequently out of stock and hard to get 2) This interface has more noise than other interfaces In particular, when running though the MIDAS preamp, my UMC204HD has an unweighted signal to noise ratio of 90db, which is fine for 16-bit audio, but too noisy to use with 24-bit audio. My older first generation Scarlett 2i2, using the same test, has a s/n ratio of 97db. If I bypass the preamp by using the insert in the back as the input (which requires a special cable or adapter), I get a signal to noise ratio of about 96db, comparable with my older 2i2. Besides the noise, it's a great interface. The drivers in Windows 7 are quite stable. It has considerably less full round trip latency (as measure by RTL Utility) than my older 2i2: 44.1khz has 7.7ms latency and 96khz has 6.5ms of latency. Unlike the older Scarlett interfaces, I no longer feel a need to increase the sampling rate to keep latency down. The drivers are a download from Behringer's site, and install smoothly in Windows 7; they are quite stable and I have not had a driver problem yet. Unlike other interfaces, there is no digital audio workstation (DAW) software included with the program. Since most DAWs included with interfaces are limited near-demo versions of the software, I don't consider this a significant loss, especially since one can buy, say, Reaper along with the UMC204HD for less than any comparable interface. In conclusion, for people who already know which DAW they like to use, this interface has a great price but the preamp is a little more noisy than I would like.
