This is an excellent interface all-around. I make good use of the 4 inputs, and I've tracked stereo acoustic guitar, piano, vocals, electric guitar (both DI and mic'd amps), bass, and drums (via the Glyn Johns technique). -20dB pads on each input are very useful when tracking drums. The metal casing feels quite sturdy. Mine has already received pretty significant battle-scarring, but without impacting performance in any way. Good build quality and great bang-for-the-buck.

Unfortunately the product itself is not the problem. I wasn't lucky and mine died on me 4 months later after buying it (a defective one). Behringer did not want to fix it( even though it was under warranty) because GC created a policy where it prohibits them to fix this product if bought thru GC. I spent the money and CG didn't fix it and Behringer didn't either!
Buy this product somewhere else! Or better yet save extra money and buy a better product!

        Comments about Behringer U-PHORIA UMC404HD Audiophile:

        This is an powerful and affordable recording interface. Seriously, if you are looking at this page with any desire whatsoever to invest in an interface and the UMC404HD is in stock, BUY IT. This unit has features rivaling units easily twice the cost.

        I'm using this interface with Presonus Studio One 3. I had no problems setting up the interface in the DAW. The control panel for the interface has useful features like level adjustments and latency settings. I was able to get my input and output latency down to 2.5ms at it's lowest setting.

        Having 4 inputs is convenient, and the preamps sound crisp. I record DI guitar, and I re-amp using one of the 4 outputs. The signal sounds as good re-amped as it did when originally played, despite going through the interface's I/O.

              Comments about Behringer U-PHORIA UMC404HD Audiophile:

              I have owned and use several low and high end interfaces. Out of all of the interfaces in this price range from other competitors, this is the best in my opinion. For what you pay this thing is packed full of options and features. The sound is very neutral and very similar to the x32 line preamps which are quite good. They are not going to blow your mind but they should not disappoint either. Not as sterile as a Yamaha, but not sizzly / airy as a Presonus. I also like to use my Presonus interface for certain software instruments, but it has a character that I do not prefer to hear on every track. The Behringer has a bit more depth to it and doesnt seem to get harsh like some other cheaper interfaces do. They dont seem to have a particularly high noise floor either. Very usable for many different applications.

              Midi is also a huge plus. As well as the led indicator for midi signal. Two different monitor outputs and a mono stereo button is amazing too. Lets not forget the pad and line switch on each of the channels, and rca options in the back. XLR and quarter inch main outputs (cool). I dont know anything else in the price range that even compares.

              I will edit this if I am incorrect, but I also remember this being class compliant which makes it very driver friendly (except windows of course). I almost never buy anything that isnt these days. This makes it plug and play compatible with mac and linux operating systems, and should also work if plugged into an ipad via camera connection kit.

                      3 months after I started using it it started clipping even though there was no signal going through it. It totally freaked out. You definitely pay for what you get, so just know if you choose to buy this it won't be nearly as reliable as the more expensive Scarlett. Good warranty tho!

If you're looking for a good audio interface go with Behringer they have stepped their game up big time.

                            Perfect for my needs. With 4 line input channels and midi in and out this has been the missing piece from my setup. The equipment feels solid and is compact while still being accessible with individual gain settings for each channel and a headphone monitoring with volume control away from the input channels. The Phantom power for mics is a switch on the back of the box along with all of the 4 outputs -both 1/4 and RCA connections. Whole there is no direct iOS support, you can port the audio through the 4 channels on the front of the box and midi through another a USB to midi interface. I have been using the UMC404HD with an iconnectivity-midi4 for all of my midi porting and this has been a good setup.
                            I tried all of the irig interfaces with the exception of the Duo and they all pale in comparison- there is nothing that comes close to this interface in its price range with what it offers. Completely satisfied!
                            On note on the drivers on PC, I had to reinstall them after I changed the USB connection to my PC while the unit was on - not sure if that is common but caused a small interruption to figure out what happened.

                              I've only had minimal opportunity to use this at this point, but initial experiences indicate that it's easy to use, does exactly what it's supposed to do, and worked seamlessly with my MacBook Pro. Fits nicely into the bag I use as a portable studio set up, too. That's a plus.

                                    I upgraded my iRig that I originally bought for my ipad but was also using for the PC. The UMC404HD is awesome, it works great. Great audio quality, effectively zero latency in Studio one or pro tools. Great versatility, the monitor mix is great for blending your amplifier with music from the PC for practicing, You can also use the mix to get zero latency monitoring when recording, but to be honest, I can't hear any latency when using with Studio one so I don't typically use it that way. It has multiple monitor outputs, and a separate headphone volume control. I can be in my sitting room playing everything through my headphones: Studio one/pro tools/audio from Spotify, whatever.

                                    I capture speaker emulated outputs from my Amp into inputs 1 and 2, then a DI "dry: signal into 3 so I can re-amp with Amplitube, GTR, or any other guitar modeling software. Because of the included outputs, I can even send the recorded dry signal back out to the amp to get a different real amp sound post recording.

                                    I could not find anything close to this that was not twice as much.
