OVERVIEW

Ultra-affordable guitar-to-computer USB connection with killer amp and effects software.

The Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 interface is an amazing practice tool that lets you connect your guitar to your computer in a flash, giving you the best of both worlds.

The UCG102 guitar-to-USB interface lets you jam and record using modeling amps and effects without the need for any other gear but your guitar. The compact interface links your electric guitar to a PC or Mac computer via a typical USB cable, allowing you to rock with sophisticated software such as the included Guitar Combos Behringer Edition from Native Instruments, Kristal Audio Engine multi-track sequencer and Audacity audio editor. It also features a Headphone output for silent practicing.

Classic Combos*
Native Instruments Guitar Combos Behringer Edition perfectly recreates 3 classic combos. The virtual tube combos have an absolutely authentic, dynamic and pure tone.

Guitar Combo I's popular role model revolutionized British pop music. From soft to distorted, this combo has a uniquely inspiring sonic character.

Guitar Combo II is the epitome of the clean and crunchy blues sound. Over the course of several decades, this warm and unmistakable sound has made a valuable contribution to countless hits.

Based on the famous tube amps that spawned the guitar legends of the late '60s and early '70s, Guitar Combo III embodies the rock sound. Its distinctive and individual tone can be as warm as it can be hard.

Get it now and take off with this USB interface.

* Fully functional demo versions of all three combos are available to download. These all offer the same features as the full versions but will only run for the first 30 days after installation. You can use the included coupon ID to download the serial number to the Guitar Combo of your choice FOR FREE!

This will turn your laptop into a powerful recording studio with zero delay/latency issues so you can play along with tracks while monitoring in real time! JUST what I was looking for and at a GREAT price too!

Shame on Behringer and Musician's Friend for continuing to market this, without noting the software limitations! I'm fairly computer competent, but have still struggled all morning with trying to get this wretched thing to work. What should be a simple little gadget, requiring little more than plugging in to a USB port, has turned into a time consuming, expeditious tour of internet rabbit holes, trying to locate usable software elements that can all 'play nice' together. And I'm still not there: the software that I have located does not install correctly. Yeesh. Also, contrary to the sales pitch, you don't get to choose a Native Instruments modeled combo, as the included serial number is assigned to one model.

For me, the buying decision here was between this item and the next higher priced units (the Bespeco and the Vox). The Behringer has already consumed more than the difference in price, in time and difficulty. I'll be returning this worse-than-useless thing, and looking into one of those.

It strikes me that it might actually be possible to find and install software components that will allow this to function the way it is supposed to. But it should not be necessary to do that in the first place.

Recommend to a friend? Not hardly. And I'll certainly be a little more careful about making the Behringer choice next time.

    Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

    This is a great, great interface. I get almost zero latency. But be warned, it is a beast to get going the first time. I'm very computer literate and it took me multiple days to get it working right. But wow it was worth it.

    Highly Complex Product

    Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

    This product appeared to be a very simple, almost plug and play, interface that would let me play my RISA ukulele through my PC and laptop. I have been researching how to make this interface work for about a month. Some users are very lucky and very satisfied. Others, like me, have yet to get a single note out the PC speakers or headphones. It is an inexpensive device, but should still be straight-forward to install. IT IS NOT. Drivers are no longer available at the vendor site. The fact that even this business can not provide concrete installation instructions that result in this device working should be enough to scare anyone off this product. I'll continue to work with it to see if I can ultimately make it work, but I won't be holding my breath. I may be an electronics engineer but this thing has enough settings to scare me off.

      Very disappointed...The Software was replaced by Guitar5 and that has problems, at least with a I'Mac...The only thing this thing is good for is an Adapter for the New Garage Band...Thumbs down!

          There are not any drivers, that I could find, to make this work with windows 8. The software is written for XP. Save yourself the time and money. I'm returning this immediately.

          The software is very old, did not install as described in the manuals and there was no obvious auto-download from either vendor. I'm dead in the water and will return it if the vendor(s) don't reply.

            Was disappointed at first because the ASIO driver on the software disc did not load. Read some other reviews about win7 problems and almost gave up. Went to the Behringer website and downloaded the driver. This thing works great(with the correct driver). Native Instruments Guitar Combo is awesome, I can now play along with Maschine.

            I have been a musician for nearly 40 years and have been doing my own recording for about 4 years now. This device has been a long needed tool in my musical toolbox. It takes any non-usb mircro-phone and plays through my MAC with ease. It works great with any guitar just as well. I love it and you will too!

              Comments about Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 USB Interface:

              This device sounds great. I've been playing for over 20 years and I've been looking for something to hook up my guitar to my Mac. I've only tried it with Garageband but the sound is good and no delays if set up right. It was a little finicky to get to work with Garageband at first but after setting the inputs and then re-opening Garageband it's worked like a charm every time. Haven't tried the software it came with but it sounds great through the amp mods in Garageband. Great product for what I need...and a great price.
