MIDAS - A Legend in Sound Quality
Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations world-wide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards.

MIDAS has earned their impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build quality and in particular for their Award-winning Mic Preamps which are considered by industry experts as the industry’s best sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XL8 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of Award-winning audio quality.

The UMC1820 mix control allows zero-latency direct monitoring, which means musicians can experience their performance clearly and with no delay or lag in the returning signal, resulting in a better performance and recording. Its powerful phones output has its own level control and Monitor A/B source select for DJ-style cueing.

Comments about Behringer U-PHORIA UMC1820 USB Audio Interface:

At first I thought it wasn't going to work because I couldn't get any sounds to come out. But after reading the manual you must first download the driver for it. For the price this is a great product and I plan to add on another interface with this one so I can get 16 channels.

      Comments about Behringer U-PHORIA UMC1820 USB Audio Interface:

      i've never had a problem with behringer stuff, i own lots of it. usually works great despite their reputation. this on the other hand did not. i bought 1 and it works for about a week before i lost all output. if you cranked all the volumes up and everything you might be able to hear it slightly, even on recordings or head phones. sent it back and got a replacement. again it worked for about a week then the usb failed mid recording. never got it to reconnect. about 3 days later output starts getting quieter and quieter until it sounded just like the first. sent it back and this time i don't think i'll waste the time of getting a third one. something is obviously wrong somewhere. either it's grounding out or a bad component . i'll do some more research and find something better.
