    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    It was far quieter than I expected. It does not color the sound but just makes it louder. I am using it with a Blue Yeti Pro in stereo and have enough quiet gain. There is a very tiny amount of hiss but way better than my old Presonus Bluetube. I liked the sound of the Presonus better as it colored the sound better with the tube gain but the Bluetube noise floor was unusable. The unit is a real deal at this price. Of course the multi thousand dollar units would be nicer and maybe someday I will be able to afford it but for right not the MIC2200 is a clear improvement and a step up in my recording. I read a lot of reviews before I got it and you have to judge it as a great entry level microphone preamp at a price less than many used preamps it is a great deal for the money.

    That's impossible!

    By TIMOTHY KASEY

    from Portland, Oregon

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    I was recently involved in a live multi-track recording, and having a mic in front of each of the three acoustics was NOT an option. The monitors would have bled through those mics, and the performers would have been uncomfortably frozen in place (not cool for video). I had to do something, and so I gathered together all my DI units, and payed a special visit to one of the performer's homes. We tried out three DI units, and when the Ultragain was connected, the guitar sounded like a mic was placed about 6" in front (we had a mic, and used it as reference). If you told me this was possible, I would say you don't know what you're saying. I still can hardly believe it to be possible. I was so impressed that I special ordered a second Ultragain. I followed that up with a purchase of new tubes, and a modification making the unit able to link the left and right channel. What this allows the producer to do is... the option of tracking into two channels. There are two ways to manage this: 1) you can go stereo with both sides receiving the same tube drive; OR 2) You can drive one channel hard on the tube, and the other with lesser drive.

    About to buy another

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    As others have said, sometimes Behringer gear can be iffy. This unit is different. I own 2 and they've worked flawlessly for years. You can use them in your recording chain but they also excel as a guitar or bass preamp. So I'll I add that factor to the set of reviews I see here, for those who are looking for tube preamps for guitar or bass. No matter what I have in my guitar or bass signal chain, this preamp is last in line with the Behringer Tube Composer compressor/limiter. The Ultragain Pro works great without the Tube Composer, but I'm describing 2 setups I use that have the Ultragain pro included. For (both) my guitar and bass setups I use the Digitech RP500 multi-effect pedalboard. The output goes to the Ultragain Pro - then to the Tube Composer. This allows me to control the overall envelope (including drive) of the sound I'm feeding to the amps. Also gives me a master volume that feeds the input of the amps. I can plug this (both units in a small rack) into any standard guitar amp anywhere and it will deliver my own sound out the speakers. For instance, in studio I use 5 different guitar amps and this setup allows me a quick, dependable, predictable sound from all. Each amp is delivering the best it can do. My oldest amp is a 1954 Gibson GA-40. Sounds great when used raw. But feeding it with the controlled envelope via Tube Ultragain & Tube Composer really helps this amp do what it does best. And when I stomp on any of my effects on the RP-500 pedalboard, I have a controlled, full frequency range sound with the extra warmth of the 12ax7's in the Behringer boxes. The vintage amps "sing" better, whether they be tube or transistor. For bass I use the same thing, except I use a 1970's BGW stereo amp instead of a normal bass guitar amp. Same result. The signal I'm feeding into the amp is amazingly "well placed" or controlled. The BGW simply has to make it loud for my JBL drivers in my old Sunn cabinets. The tubes in the Behringer boxes bring out incredible nuances from my Rickenbacker 4005 bass. Sounds like a tube amp, but kinda "better." BTW, I never use the EQ feature. But I'm sure many people love having it built-in. So it's good that Behringer included it switchable. No wall wart power supply! GOOD! Buying another Tube Ultragain now for two reasons: 1- I need two more channels of tube preamp. 2- I want to get a third Tube Ultragain so I can use this sound for a long time. A spare. Behringer just may change this or discontinue it someday. I'd hate to have to try to find a replacement. They sound very musical, no noise, very predictable and reliable.

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    This preamp is absolutly great for the begining engineer. It has a good headroom for the price and is very quiet.I am a big fan of Behringer equipment but this is by far one of the best pieces of equipment Behringer has put out.

    Other Uses...

    By Robb

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    I am no longer in the music or sound business. But I've had to move on. So, Now I have an Amateur Radio Operator 'Jones' - uh 'hobby'. I first purchased the ART Tube MP preamp for my broadcast room/radio transmitter. But it wasn't as clean as I needed, so I tried out the Behringer preamp. Much nicer. I use it with a MXL V88 large-capsule condenser mic. Very clean and uncolored sound, crystalline tonal qualities makes for a true broadcast-quality sound. As a whole, Behringer gear isn't always the #1 preferred gear in most recording studios. But I did find some use for some of their gear in my studio - worked quite well too. Many Ham ('Amateur') radio operators prefer Behringer mic preamps, the DEQ, DSP, and rack mixer because of the low price and the very high audio quality standard built in. Bradcast quality = recording quality - make no mistake about that! For the price, you simply cannot go wrong and could do a whole lot worse if you don't use this preamp. The single parametric filter in this unit preamp/channel is useful to get the low rumble out of the first stage. Leave the final vocal EQ for your recording pristine with the right preamp. But get it right to the tract by getting the right character with that pristine tube sweetener. You can't go wrong with the Ultra Gain Pro...

    Pretty good.

    By Tom Jones

    from Fairfax, VA

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    Overall, I'm impressed with the unit. It added some clean headroom to my recordings. Originally I bought this for two extra tom mic inputs going into a 002r. I've started using it for other things to see what it's capable of. I have to say it's not bad for the money. Of course, my Focusrite blows this pre outta the water, but for a hundred bucks, you really can't go wrong. The manual doesn't explain how to change the tube. I wish it did. I'm not even sure if the tube had any effect on the recordings at all, I couldn't find any ''warmth'' to speak of. It just sounds like a solid-state pre to me. I'm glad I bought it, but eventually will be upgrading.

    One Behringer product that performs well

    By Tom Hardin

    from Rowlett, Tx

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    I own just a couple of Behringer products. They seem to have a lack of quality that is related to the control knobs and connectors. I would not purchase any other Behringer products but this one is the exception. I found it quiet and free of the problems associated with other Behringer equipment. the control it offers in the recording environment is excellent and the lack of noise in a pre-amp is a welcome quality. Iwould recommend this specific product to anyone.

    Behringer Ultra Gain Pro Mic 2200

    By Operationanti

    from Spokane, WA

    Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

    I bought the Ultra Gain Pro a few years ago because my digital 8-track only had two XLR mic inputs, and the built in mic preamps sounded a bit flat and icy. In it's price range, this is one of the only tube mic preamps with two channels that you will find. It definitely gave my vocal recordings a little bit more of a "sweet" sound, and the tone shaping controls make the unit very versatile. It even has a low-cut control, a phase reversal switch, and phantom power for each channel. The VU meters keep me informed of what my signal is doing, which is also very handy. The Ultragain Pro did exactly what I'd hoped it would. It gave me two extra XLR inputs with phantom power with some great tone shaping features, and I was able to get my home recordings done without having to buy a whole new mixing board.
