It's hard to believe that Uli Behringer's company was nothing more than a "one-man kitchen-table startup" when it was founded in 1989 - especially when you consider that it's now one of the most successful pro-audio manufacturers on the planet. Today, Behringer is made up of a team of passionate, hard-working sound gurus who put a great deal of effort into everything they design, and that most certainly includes audio interfaces. Just look through this section and it will be plain to see that Behringer audio interfaces boast an incredibly high level of craftsmanship and detail.
Behringer has always been serious about providing musicians of all budgets with top quality gear, and the wide range of prices throughout this catalog makes that evident. The only things you need to ask yourself are how many outputs/inputs you need and what type of route you use (FireWire or USB?). To help you speed up your search, it helps to start with the best sellers, and the U-PHORIA UMC 404HD Audiophile has a solid reputation. Featuring everything you need in a two-input, tabletop audio interface, this beauty is loaded with MIDAS mic preamps, "Zero Latency" monitoring and Tracktion - one of the world's fastest DAWs for composing, recording, editing, mixing and sharing music.
Behringer also specializes in portable devices for individual instruments, and the Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface is a killer little unit that lets you connect you guitar to a computer in a flash. Simply hook up to a PC or MAC via a USB cable, and you can rock out with first-class software such as the Guitar Combos Behringer Edition from Native Instruments and the Kristal Audio Engine multi-track sequencer. Overall, the Guitar Link is just another example of Behringer's flair for cutting-edge recording products.
Along with these two amazing choices, Behringer has many other audio interfaces that deserve a closer look, like the FCA610 Firepower/USB Audio Interface (which includes FireWire connectivity) and the super-compact U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface. No doubt, when you're ready to make a massive upgrade to your studio setup, a Behringer audio interface is the perfect answer.
