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.

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.

    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.

    Really REALLY BAD.

    By Sam

    Comments about Behringer U-Phoria UM2:

    Worked for a day then LOUD cracking static haunted it. Changed cables. Changed computers. Same deal. Behringer tech support took two days, gave no suggestions other than to return it. Lost time on my project. My bad for being penny-wise, pound foolish. Solved it by spending more money on a more reliable product. Waisted time my time with added hassle for an inferior product. Shame on Behringer for making this. Shame on retailers who sells this.

        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.

        Comments about Behringer U-Phoria UM2:

        A friend and I recently started doing our own home recordings and song compilations, knowing next to nothing about the recording part. This product is easy to use and works how we want. Our only issue is getting to record two things at once, and that may be a problem on our end, so no complaints here, for sure. I would recommend it to anyone starting out, or just wanting to record on the go.

          Comments about Behringer U-Phoria UM2:

          Solid enough construction, fairly easy to use, VERY disappointed that I had to register with Behringer to get the software it is supposed to come with and still have yet to receive my redemption code to get the software, could be it's cause of the Holidays but I've read some pretty terrible reviews of their customer service, can't say I have gripes about the product but im not happy with the company. Worth the 30 dollar price tag I suppose. I will not purchase their products (new anyways) again, I won't risk being left in the cold by their company.

          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.
