This is a very cool product. I have 3 of them and have had no problems so far. I bought one in mid 2009 and I liked it so much that I decided to buy 2 more recently(Feb 2010). It's extremely easy to use. I plugged the USB interface into my laptop's USB port and Windows immediately recognized and installed it. Run RCA cables from the UCA's output to your mixer and you're ready to play your laptop through your system. To record, run cables from mixer to input on UCA. You have to get a recording software like audacity installed on your pc though.You probably can use the sound recorder that Windows has, though I've never used it. Go to the Behringer website and ask their support guys if you want more information. They're very helpful. At least that has been my experience. I also use one to connect another laptop to my TV to transfer sound(not picture. Works great! One thing though- I found that when I connect to my desktop(I have Windows XP) I have to go to "Sounds and Audio properties" and manually change the output to USB Codec, otherwise my pc continues to play through my pc speakers and not through my system. I don't have this "problem" with my laptops. To go to Sounds and Audio properties, click Start, Control panel,(in category view)Sounds speech and audio devices,Sounds and audio devices,Audio. Under "default device" change to USB Codec. Hope this has been helpful.

The UCA202 is not a true ASIO device. The drivers use a WDM to ASIO wrapper (ASIO4ALL or the Behringer-branded derivative of it), which makes them unsuitable for DAW usage. The best latency you can achieve is about 50 ms (>1024 sample buffer) before you start getting a lot of audio dropouts/glitches. This may be fine for game/media output to a stereo or single-track recording, but it's unacceptable for any kind of real-time audio work. I also noticed digital noise on the headphone out due to the RCA inputs. The volume wheel did not affect it nor did turning off monitoring. I had to disable the input hardware entirely from the driver to make it stop. The audio quality is otherwise pretty good. I bought this to have a compact, portable ASIO device for music production work on the road. I guess I'll have to keep looking.

Since the product is ...

By pompa

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

Since the product is designed to appeal to the home recording novice, a more thorough explanation of how to actually interface with your PC would have been very helpful. The manual only stated the obvious. It took me three or four hours of trial and error and research to identify such terms as ASIO, latency, CODEC, and VST Host. The driver software had good instructions but the manual should identify what to input in the settings. I still can't determine what the latency rate actually is supposed to be. I had poor success with all of the recording software programs that were linked from the Behringer web site, which either had no explanation of how to use them or made no sense at all from the screen view. I finally stumbled across recording software while searching for a program to convert WAV to WMA or mp3 so that I could record to CD. I am, however, very pleased with the UCA202 device itself. It does exactly what is supposed to do at a reasonable cost.

Awesome if done right

By ambient415

from Riverview, MI

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

I think this is an absolute must for just polishing off a system. I actually run it with a 2 channel pre amp to boost power but as is works just as well. A little more guidence with the drivers would have been helpful. But it is a cheap but good quality interface. It also fits in your pocket which is just downright sweet.

great value

By Don

from Pensacola,FL

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

This is exactly what I needed to interface with my PC. Can't beat it for the price. I already have all the effects, etc., so the more expensive devices were not necessary. This is great product for getting onto eJamming.

Great for the money

By Kirk W.

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

I bought this last year as a starter interface for mobiles and it has never let me down. Plug and functionality work perfectly and very good sound quality with strong output. I have not had a chance to try recording through it yet but have heard that it works great for basic recording. The only minor drawback to the unit is you only have one stereo output. Using it with Traktor or Serato has strong limitations not allowing you to play from both decks independently (ie que on one channel and feed mains on the other). It is perfect and much safer for connecting your laptop to your home stereo or mixer than the headphone jack.

Cheap and Effective

By Matt

from Butler, PA

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

I first got one of these with a Behringer mixer i purchased, and was blown away by the quality compared to the interface i had before. Although it is not professional quality, it is excellent none the less, and i did manage to get a friend's song i recorded to be regularly played on the local radio station. When i decided that i wanted to expand beyond the two inputs of the U-control, i looked into firewire interfaces and such, but decided to take a different more cost-effective route. I bought 5 more U-controls, hooked all 6 up to my laptop with the help of a USB-multiport, and they worked flawlessly, all 12 inputs. If you're looking for a cheap way to get good quality for a cheap price, pick up a few of these.

Handy for a laptop

By John

from WIchita, KS

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

This is a good interface for feeding audio to a laptop, especially one that doesn't have line inputs. Even if you use the line/headphone out of your laptop into an audio system, this will give better results. Here's why. Computers, especially laptops aren't made for audio. Noise generated internally is passed through to the output. Since the UCA202 is outside the box, so to say, you won't hear things like beat tones and drive accesses. The plug and play claim was true. (I use WIN2K SP4) You just have to be sure the recording software is looking at the interface. If there was anything I could think of to improve this product, it'd be the addition of an input level control and a little more gain to go with it.

Waste of money.

By hardline

from Columbus Ohio

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 USB-Audio Interface:

Behringer is cheap audio equipment period. You get what you pay for. Picks up major feedback and noise. Don't buy any of their mixers either, they are cheap junk and my car cd player has more power. Will never use anything Behringer ever again.
