- When it's time to make recording history, you need the best audio interface you can get, and you need one you can count on. That's why we're kicking it up a notch with our new U-PHORIA Series USB Audio Interfaces. With 4 unique models to choose from, the U-PHORIA Series has the ideal interface to make your recording experience legendary.
- MIDAS-Design Preamps - Renowned for their mastery of digital console design, our sister company MIDAS developed the world-class preamps for the UMC204, UMC202 and UMC22 interfaces-and thanks to the available 48 V phantom power, you can even use professional-grade studio condenser mics to create outstanding tracks.
- 96 kHz Precision - You take your tracks seriously, and the U-PHORIA Series respects that, providing your choice of 96 kHz resolution (UMC204/UMC202), or 48 kHz resolution converters (UMC22/UM2), depending on your application. Both sampling rates offer better than CD recording quality for professional results.
- Convenient Monitoring - All U-PHORIA models provide powerful phones output with Level control and Direct Monitor select, Status, Signal and Clip LEDs, and are powered via your computer's USB port so they're ready to go wherever you go. Plus we provide free audio recording, editing and podcasting software, plus 150 instrument / effect plug-ins-just a download away at BEHRINGER.com.
- Compose. Record. Mix. Share - TRACKTION 4 puts the fun back into the creative process, so we're including it free of charge with select BEHRINGER products. This powerful, yet easy-to-use music production software is unlike anything you've seen before, putting everything you'll need on your desktop, on a single-screen - without the sea of drop down and hidden menus common to most other DAWs. And TRACKTION doesn't limit the number of tracks you can record, or the number of effects you can use. In fact, the only limitation is your Mac or PC computer's processing power. Recording and editing couldn't be easier; simply drag, drop, cut, copy or paste. Once your magnum opus is finished, share it with other "Tracktioneers" so they can listen, collaborate and edit.

its good value and works as described
As per descriotion
Good product, cheap, but the output gain controls volume for everything instead of having separate knobs for say headphones & speakers. A Bit strange. They didn't think about it.
An excellent piece of kit, especially for the price. Not quite as plug&play as advertised but that’s purely down to how Macs handle I/O drivers. The physical box itself isn’t particularly sturdy but that’s a minor quibble. tl;dr - Recommended.
