Comments about Behringer U-PHORIA UMC1820 USB Audio Interface:

Clean and quite preamps at a great price. Works perfectly for my band, easy install of the drivers too. Using with studio one. I don't see a reason to buy a more expensive 8 channel interface.

Comments about Behringer U-PHORIA UMC1820 USB Audio Interface:

I would have given this a 5 star review, but it only supplies phantom power to either 4 channels at a time (1-4, or 5-8), or all 8 channels at once. I only need 2 channels to have phantom power, and the rest not have phantom. It would be much nicer to be able to select for each channel, but oh well. It's still a really great piece of equipment. Easy to set up and use, and the sound quality just can't be beat, especially at this price point. I love it, and highly recommend it.
