The fastest way to upgrade your mixer!

Looking for a simple, affordable way to get your music into the digital realm? Or maybe you’d like to connect your computer to an external effects unit or recorder? Want to transfer your old cassette tapes to CD before the oxide falls off the tape? The fastest, easiest way to get analog audio into your computer is with the U-CONTROL UCA222 Audio Interface.

This ultra-compact, USB-powered device lets you connect your PC or Mac computer to virtually any piece of audio gear. It gets its power from your computer’s USB bus, so no external power supply or batteries are required. And the UCA222 requires no special setup or drivers—just plug it in to a free USB port and start recording.

Versatility

The UCA222 features two analog mono inputs for connecting any line-level device, such as a mixer or tape deck, and two analog mono outputs for connecting active speakers or studio monitors. On the digital side, the UCA222 provides USB connectivity and an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct analog-to-digital conversion. The stereo headphone output has a dedicated level control and allows you listen to either the input source or the computer output.

When used as a professional interface between a mixing console and your computer, myriad options become available. Some of these might include connecting the UCA222’s RCA outputs to the TAPE INPUT jacks of your mixer or active monitors, or directly into the input channels of the mixer. Connecting to mixer input channels gives you access to equalization and allows you to use the AUX Send features of your mixer to build extremely versatile monitor mixes for your recording sessions.

Tons of Free Software

Because you’ll want to take full advantage of the UCA222’s podcasting and recording potential we’ve included a massive software package including Audacity, Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear. You’re ready to go live on your Mac or PC computer right out of the box! You also get more than 100 virtual instruments and over 50 effects plug-ins, turning your computer into a complete home-based or mobile recording studio from input to output.

energyXT2.5 Compact BEHRINGER Edition included! If you’re ready to take your projects to an even higher level, XT Software’s energyXT2.5 is just the trick. This amazing DAW (digital audio workstation) makes it easy to manipulate your audio and MIDI files, turning song ideas into stunning CD or web-ready recordings. energyXT2.5 includes built-in synthesizers, which can be accessed directly via an external controller or programmed by step-write mode. There’s even a built-in drum machine and internal multi-FX processor.

    Comments about Behringer U CONTROL UCA222 Audio Interface:

    I use this in place of the default desktop sound card when recording music. My desktop is a Linux Mint 9 OS with Audacity recording software installed. With the UCA222 connected, Audacity automatically recognized it and everything worked with no issues. I haven't used the provided software by the manufacturer since I already used Audacity. This is a good bang-for-the-buck interface.

      Comments about Behringer U CONTROL UCA222 Audio Interface:

      Unit produces a 1khz tone during recording if anything else is plugged into another USB port on the computer. Included software isn't very good and the drivers are a little less than intuitive to install and configure properly. At best, this unit makes a good quick and dirty playback device but for recording I would suggest a better 24-bit device.
