I purchased Behringer's U-Control UCA222 USB Audio Interface to convert our church's audio cassettes to CDs. The USB interface was perfect for plugging into the front of the computer; the computer quickly installed the correct drivers. I had to purchase a stero 1/8 inch to dual RCA cable. Then, using Audacity software, it comes with the purchase of the UCA222, I was able to convert several cassette tapes into CDs. You can monitor the audio with the headphone jack too. That's it really helpful. It does what it needs to do at a reasonable price.

    Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

    I wanted something small to pair-up with a laptop VST host for live performance. This couldn't be any easier. Plug it in, wait 20 seconds and voila!, a low-laency audio interface that's far superior to what you're likely to find built-in to your average laptop. You need a pair of RCA-to-XLR (or whatever your mixer wants). Sounds great, takes up zero space.

      Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

      This is a pretty straight forward and simple interface. However it is extremely useful for simple simple things that arn't requiring the best. This converter is not going to blow your mind, but it is much better than the standard headphone jack of a laptop, phone, ipad, etc. This makes it good for replacing or upgrading these things as well as adding convenient options like RCA inputs / outputs and direct monitoring. One of my favorite uses for this device is to upgrade the sound of a stock Raspberry Pi. Also for a dosbox / mt32 combo.

      The converters are only 44.1/16bit which doesnt make them very high end. However most of your consumer end gear isnt much different. What makes the UCA222 better is that it uses a Burr Brown chip which makes this a step above the standard. If you look at reviews online you can see how it is actually quite good. In comparison to a standard iphone jack, the UCA222 gives a more balanced sound where the mids come upfront a little more and the stereo image widens and tightens a bit. Also the bass becomes tighter as well. The phone / laptop has a somewhat distant sound, grainier, and the bass seems flabbier.

      Just a note about the output levels on the UCA222. It seems there is a gain structure problem within the device where the input to the converter is on the hot side. Meaning if you have the output from the computer set to max, it is most likely going to distort the converter. It is very obvious when it distorts which could account for some peoples negative experiences and reviews. I recommend turning down the master output level from your computer to avoid this. However i usually recommend this with most converters anyway. Turn up your speakers to compensate for volume loss.

        Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

        Be advised, the USB connection is for BOTH data and power. At first it did not seem to be working with Audacity, but after trying ALTERNATE INPUT software choices in Audacity, I got it to work just fine.

            Simple to Use

            By Jason Crawford

            from Washington, DC

            Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

            I do podcasts and have been burning them onto CD prior to uploading to the hosting website and down to iTunes, but music CDR's have an 80 minute limit. I'm not ready to spend the money on Traktor gear, so this seemed to be a good solution. Setup goes from Pioneer CDJ's to Pioneer DJM mixer, out to the Behringer control, then into Macbook. Once I looked at the short instruction manual and figured out which jacks the RCA cables went in, it was a breeze to use with Audacity software.

            Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

            This is a great product. I bought it so I could record my DJ mixes in GarageBand instead of just using Serato. The only issue I have with the product is that it says it comes with free software and it doesn't, Whatever kind of software it supposed to come with you don't need. This interface is plug and play,Other than that it is a great product.

            Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

            This product is put together very well. I would definitely suggest that you use this with a analog mixer with more than 5 mic inputs. This interface picks up alot of hiss....but it onlii picks up what you want it to record. I am a drummer and when I'm recording I have a 2 monitors like 3-4 feet away and they are loud but the interface onlii picked up the sound a little. Also do not use the recording software that comes with it because its atrocious!!!!!!

            Behringer Audio Interface - top value

            By Bob Mansfield

            from Spokane, WA

            Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

            Basically acting as a sound card with lots of bells and whistles, the USB interface is simple to use, truly low latency and excellent sound quality. I purchased the interface because the normal microphone input to my laptop was noisy and I didn't like having to filter out the noise after the recording was made. The Behringer USB interface has no detectable noise and the sampling rate produces excellent sound quality. The accompanying software is an excellent bargain and provides most any imaginable tool for music creation and recording. Overall, top quality and superb value for the dollar.
