      Comments about Behringer U-Phoria UM2:

      I am a one man band with no need for multi-channel recording, so this unit works out great for me and, frankly, I don't think you need to invest tons of money in order to get a good Home Recording. The UM2 is well under $!00 and gets the job done for me. Good clean sound going in. Good unit.

      Do not waste your money on this product. One day it was working, the next day, it wasn't. I exchanged it for the same interface, and thought it would be working like new. God, do I regret that decision. Refunding this very soon.

        The thing seems to only work when it wants to, 10 percent of the time or so. When it doesn't, it'll just sit there blinking..taunting you. If you're a reasonable guy like me, you'll probably wanna throw it out the window..and no one would blame you for it. The sound quality through the headphones is godawful too. cheap price, cheaper quality.

        Useful for RTA / Microphone Test Set-Up

        • Line-out level limited

        Best Uses

        • Car audio loudspeaker test and measurement

        Comments about Behringer U-Phoria UM2:

        I purchased the UM2 (found the best price, at this time of posting, at Guitar Center online) as it was one of the USB devices recommended to use with the TrueRTA real-time analyzer software.

        My testing needs are for higher-level car audio sound system measurement, equalization, and more. This includes independent speaker testing also for both dBL levels and frequency response.

        As laptops have terrible built-in audio card hardware (both line in, line out, and microphone features have signicant noise levels and poor frequency response) this along with a calibrated XLR-powered microphone is used for fairly accurate RTA testing.

        Set up was easy, and powers my Dayton Audio EMM-6 XLR electret microphone with no problem. Windows drivers are self-installing, so no issue there either.

        I had issues with clipping waveforms when using the TrueRTA signal generator function, however that is due to calibration/levels, not the UM2. I left the line-out level gain at "max." on the UM2.

        My gripe is the low line-out level listed in the specifications ( 0dBU, or .774V RMS). This is a bit low, not sure why. Oddly enough, I have viewed a higher voltage output on my oscilloscope but not sure why. I limited my output, after line-out level calibration, to .774V per the specs.

        Overall, simple to use, works easily with Windows via USB (standard type A cable, included).

        NOTE! For using the line-in feature, you'll also need to purchase a 1/4" to RCA adapter Y cable. These should be inexpensive, depending where you search.

        Comments about Behringer U-Phoria UM2:

        This little guy is the perfect entry level USB Audio Interface. It does everything advertised exactly as well as it should for the price you're paying. For being basically free (in the world of audio interfaces), it's a great little piece that will suffice until you're ready for something more expensive.
