Overview

The Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 interface is an amazing practice tool that lets you connect your guitar to your computer in a flash, giving you the best of both worlds.

The UCG102 guitar-to-USB interface lets you jam and record using modeling amps and effects without the need for any other gear but your guitar. The compact interface links your electric guitar to a PC or Mac computer via a typical USB cable, allowing you to rock with sophisticated software such as the included Guitar Combos Behringer Edition from Native Instruments, Kristal Audio Engine multi-track sequencer and Audacity audio editor. It also features a Headphone output for silent practicing.

Classic Combos*
Native Instruments Guitar Combos Behringer Edition perfectly recreates 3 classic combos. The virtual tube combos have an absolutely authentic, dynamic and pure tone.

Guitar Combo I's popular role model revolutionized British pop music. From soft to distorted, this combo has a uniquely inspiring sonic character.

Guitar Combo II is the epitome of the clean and crunchy blues sound. Over the course of several decades, this warm and unmistakable sound has made a valuable contribution to countless hits.

Based on the famous tube amps that spawned the guitar legends of the late '60s and early '70s, Guitar Combo III embodies the rock sound. Its distinctive and individual tone can be as warm as it can be hard.

Get it now and take off with this USB interface.

* Fully functional demo versions of all three combos are available to download. These all offer the same features as the full versions but will only run for the first 30 days after installation.

I got the UCG102 for my laptop and guitar, but as When I started using it, I realized that the UCG102 also has the potential of becoming a USB sound card with very little latency. The UCG102 works in Windows XP and also with Fedora Linux under Jack (Jack Audio Connection Kit). Included software and manual are very good as well. Overall construction is solid, and the built-in USB cable is more than ample for the length. The volume controls and switches feel nice, and are easy on the ears when wearing headphones. Overall, I am very pleased with this interface... its very small, self-powered, and the quality is very good.

Purchased this to use with a Mac Book Pro. Product came with some software that was basically a stripped down version of Guitar Rig it seems. All software installed fine. However, the Guitar Link would not output any sound from my laptop. Behringer's site offered very little in the way of FAQS for Mac, so after an hour of researching online it seems that this problem has come up for numerous users.

Record and Play Along with your favorites...

By Terry K

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

My Tascam-1641 was at the studio and I needed to record my bass line at home. This link works perfectly with my Cubase or Logic software. Added bonus is being able to practice with my headphones on and not disturb the wife. I bought the Paul Reed Smith Guitarbud for practicing with iPod and it is awful. The Behringer is only $10 more/buy it.

Works on win7 and Linux

By Laurent

from NY

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

I've tested it on windows 7 and Linux. Works on both systems. I was able to record myself very easily. I wasn't able to measure the latency (don't know how to do), but it is enough good for my usage. Not sure you can find better for the price.

By Steve

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

Ok , First of all , It took a minute to get this thing setup right, But once you figure out how to work around all the jazz , This is a remarkable piece of equipment . I run it through my "Guitar Rig 4" Standalone , And Wow !!! the sound is outstanding. I also own "Amplitube 3" Standalone and VST and what a sound i get.I'm sorry to the fact of all the reviewers that couldn't get this device working properly. I'm glad i didn't use your reviews to make my judgement !!!

Great price for a great product

By RawrMaster

from West Bloomfield, Michigan

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

I have several friends who record actively, all with a bit higher-end equipment than mine, since i am just getting started. I found this thing online and was a bit skeptical because of the price. I don't actually use it for electric guitar, but i use it (along with MIDI) with my keyboard, and through the use of adaptors and such, i record vocals and acoustic guitar through a microphone. The device is simple. Just one in and one out, a high/low imput level switch, a headphone volume adjuster, and a clip light. However, I couldnt be happier with it. Works great with Audacity and Ableton. My biggest concern is it doesn't support midi. I can lay down midi by direct connecting my keyboard to my computer, but in order to hear it, i have to switch my headphones to either the plug on my computer, or on my keyboard. This isn't a huge problem though, because i bounce all my midi to audio before listening to it anyway. So anyway, for my usage, it could not be better.

Behringer Guitar Link UCG102USB

By Bill Downton

from West Jordan, Utah

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

The buying experience was good. I wished they would have stocked this at the store but no instant gratification. I did get email with tracking number when it shipped. It arrive as predicted. Shipped within 24 hours. The gizmo works well. In consideration of the cost, I would give this a high value. I had no trouble installing the driver or the amp modeling software that came with it. Within a few minutes, I was recording on Audacity. I am not a pro musician. I play music with the hand of a technician not an artist. The art police would arrest me for what I recorded. Gizmo is worth the money and fun to play with. Buy it.

Great tool--a tool finally availble for intelligent guitar connection to computer.

By G. Morrison

from OKC, OK

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

I'm very glad to know that this is usable in Linux--thanks, guys! Thus, I'll get another one for the bedroom! This is a quality heavy-plastic device which intelligently amplifies and digititzes your analog guitar signal--thus allowing alteration of such sounds in a computer. It incorporates, also, a headphone jack with volume control--before the sound enters the computer. The guitar combo software from the Native Instruments company in Germany is relatively inexpensive compared to most competing software. One of the three combos is gratis. The other two may be purchased later for nominal amounts (it used to be $15/combo). As mentioned previously, this will work with some competitor software and other instruments. As for people people having trouble here (with Apple mostly), the device may require a lot of "tweaking." I don't own a Mac, but the key to this device is its special USB sound codec. Your sound card/hardware and it's driver have nothing to do with inputting guitar signal here--they merely output the processed results to amps and speakers. I suggest trying different settings for the USB codec and the driver necessary for Mac. A knowledgeable kid or other computer geek may help greatly. Many things can "foil" your adventure: If your PC or Mac is "ancient," latency (slowness) is the big enemy--the device may not work at all or very poorly. Do you have competiitor software/I/O devices on your computer? Certain competitor products installed in the past or later on may prove at least somewhat incompatible-- thus forcing you to use a different driver. In the PC world, this will not work directly with a JamVox installed. Instead of the faster, native Behringer driver, I have to use the free-download ASIO4ALL driver for this--this generic driver is intended for many differing purposes: Thus, it's much slower than Behringer's proprietary driver. Some settings in the driver can compensate: Better hardware in an upgraded PC should compensate for such latency more effectively, though. Vox /Korg admits compatibility problems. I'm in the process of upgrading my PC. (ASIO drivers are for Windows only.) Separate machines (or, differing partitions with a different OS (open source or Mac) may be the "ticket" we need. JamVox software doesn't work with Linux--thus, it can't interfere with the Behringer used with Linux..

Not very useful

By Murray Stefferud

from Minnesota

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

I thought this would be a great way to practice hooked up to the laptop, and maybe do some recording as well. Software locks up when using multimedia drivers. Installed the ASIO drivers and used them with no problems, but I need to connect the computer output and guitar link output together to hear both. Samples sound great, but can't record live with them. Description of the item says I can activate the guitar combo of my choice(3 included), but the software key only seems to work with the AC Combo(I wanted on of the other combos), emailed the manufacturer about it, no solution yet. I spent hours just trying to get this to do anything useful.

Wow, I am so dissappointed with this thing!

By Jeff Krider

from Chillicothe, ohio

Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

Maybe it is me, but I have tried and tried to get this working. I managed to mess my pc up big time in the process. I have worked around p/c's since 1991 and although I am not very knowledgeable regarding the inner workings of my Dell Home Premium Edition, it has taken up 15 plus hours of my time and still no fun.(jamming)

    Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

    There was probably a reason the local Guitar Center local store didn't sell the Behringer UCG-102. As complained about by others, the software claimed it couldn't find an open internet access, although such was not the case, and wouldn't download. You could look at the software on the disc, offline,Tried to use UCG1-02 with Audacity and discovered a huge latency problem that the audio program would not correct thru correction latency settings. Subsequently learned their program does not support ASIO drivers, even tried the universal ASIO download. No other drivers available with the product. Found blog fixes suggesting erasing ASIO driver and reconnecting with the USB device designated as an audio device. While this may have been a fix with WIN XP or 7, the mandated new WIN 10 offers no such options in its newly scrambled audio device set -up. It' a USB, why change it? I downloaded Studio One recording program which supports ASIO drivers and it seemed to work better but was still a bit latent. Don't really want to learn a new recording program and I like the Audacity better, Looks like I'll have to find a new guitar interface. It won't be a Behringer.

    By Jeff Johnson

    from Westfield, Maine

    Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

    This product is a portable interface for playing and recording guitar on a computer. I have had absolutely no problems, and the sound quality is superb. I have an older pc with a pentium D proccessor and have no problems with latency. the ASIO driver installation was simple and the incuded software is both high quality and easy to use. With the software and the interface, this product is an awesome deal.

      I use this product with my mac with garage band 11 version 6.0.5 for recording. Works great and is very easy to use. Changed a few simple audio midi settings and it did exactly what I wanted it to. Sound quality is excellent for the price. A must buy for someone on a budget. Did not have to install any programs to the mac to use, but it does come with a program to have access to many different amp styles which is fun
