    OUTSTANDING! For the price. Got it with some equipment I bought a long time ago and didn't need to use it until I started having problems with the front end to my PC. I plugged in the little dude and it did exactly what it advertised. Got my tracks right into the sound card and even connected other RCA devices to allow me to listen to movies, music, etc. just as if I had bought a really expensive audio adapter.

    The Energy XT or whater, was pretty useless as far as I could tell. Very complicated and it didn't recognize half of my VSTs. It didn't automatically recognize MIDI either and it was really difficult to track in stereo mode.

    Anyway, I upgraded my front end, but really liked the UCA222 when I used it.

    Seriously, if you want to get some basic tracks into your PC or want to restore vynal records etc. this little dude is ideal....and CHEAP compared to other products.

    Purchased this unit as a simple interface to record out writing sessions in the warehouse. Set up included a single mic into the mixer which sent the signal to the U-CONTROL UCA222 into my laptop. Works great with simple apps such as Media Player or Media Monkey as well as records great into Audacity, good sound. I pulled up Fruity Loops Studio 8.0 though to play a track and sounded like crap, lots of skips and pops...(Not my system I have it tweaked very well). This is a driver issue! Only comes with standard USB driver no ASIO support for this unit. Still I would recommend to a friend for a simple and very portable interface for listening to basic media tracks.

      Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

      Excellent device. However, the device doesn't come with the boxed software shown in the item description and the product picture. This isn't a negative on the device itself but, rather the way the device is being described on the website.

        Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

        For the small price, this little unit beats the big-priced sound boards hands down.
        You can spend 8 times the cost of this unit and get less sound quality (pops, crackles, drop-outs) like I did. I've used this little gem for Online Karaoke, Internet Streaming as well as recording analog recordings to a digital format.
        I'm simply thrilled I took a chance on this product.
        As a professional broadcast engineer with decades of experience, I highly suggest you pick one of these up and forget about the expensive soundcards.

        • Bypass Laptop Mini Plug

        Comments about Behringer U-CONTROL UCA222 USB Audio Interface:

        The sound mini jack is not replacable on a laptop, yet many mini plugs are so cheaply made, that they can come apart in the mini jack. Straight USB converters are only as good as the soundcard in them. RCA patches, help, making for a clean sound.

        Eventhough I set the USB sound as default, and the USB ports to stay on at sleep mode, Windows 7 Pro shuts it off. And does not wake it back up. So I have to unplug and replug the USB each time, or have no sound.

          I am using this sound card to provide inputs and outputs to a BeagleBone Black micro-computer. The sound card is installed and running with Linux. This card is valuable in that it is USB class-compliant so it needs no drivers to be installed.

          This device has allowed me to transfer Korg Triton studio projects to my laptop DAWs that were previously not saving to the built in disc burner on the Triton (due to ongoing system errors issues). It will also allow me to digitize about 25 years of analog tape projects, gigs, and studio recordings form the 80's 90's and early 00's. Thank you MF and Behringer!

            Says it comes with software CD, but didn't. Called MF and they said to download it. Don't want to spend time downloading. I bought it for the convenience of using the interface and the software that is supposed to come with it.

              After reading all the write ups. And reading all the paper on the Behringer site. I am impressed. This is a good interface. No need for drivers, just get Audacity to write to, them Lame to convert, and you have it. I have been working on my bands new sound with this and works like it is advertized. For us we leave it in one spot and hook everything up to it. I like it.
