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.

Works as advertised

By Tony

from Sherwood, OH

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

I plugged it in, installed the driver, and started recording right away. It is an inexpensive audio interface that gets the job done. There are not any fancy features, the included software is nothing great but gets the job the done. If you need a quick, cheap interface to record with, this works.

useless

By Richard Varley

from Houston,Texas

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

The device itself would be great if, they would provide decent software. I was never able to install it properly, and the customer support is nonexistant.The virtual instruments are useless,and there are no tracks to record to. it was a total waste of money!

Simple and Effective

By ajwood

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

Bought mine to convert line level output from my Mini-Disc to USB (iTunes library). With XP, the drivers installed automatically and worked without restarting. I connected the Toslink output to my Amphony wireless headphone input to monitor and it sounds clean and clear. I'm monitoring the audio digitally as its recording into QuickTime Pro at the same time. After I get done dubbing over all 75 mini-discs, selling the transport and discs will more than pay for the transfer hardware.

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.

Awesome

By Mr. Jones

from Baltimore, MD

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!!!!!!

This product rocks

By MICHAEL LEE

from Columbus GA

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.

      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:

        Box works as advertised - very well. No DVD software included but must go online to get needed software - Audacity is key. There is no guidance to the software components needed for a fully functional hardware/software system. Not brain surgery, but you're on your own to get all of the support components for a full hardware/software solution. Thanks to Audacity and the Internet community, as usual.

          Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

          I bought this product to make some home recordings not knowing that it doesn't have a preamp,and is not the best device for that purpose. It is basically an external usb soundcard for coverting your analog records such as LPs and Cassettes to digital audio on your pc/mac. And it is a great little fairly priced gadget to serve that purpose.It is not intended to be used with microphones for voice recordings. It COULD be used for recording electric guitar/bass using an rca adapter ,however it is not efficient enough to power the pickups to their max potential.You should be able to record any line output, including keyboards without hassle though. It has a direct monitor switch for any latency issues during recording, which is a great add on,especially considering its price.

Went with this product. No problems. No issues. Back in business. I am a diehard Behringer Fan. Once again they delivered.

              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.
