Default Any experience on the Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD?

Hello everyone! I think my Yamaha AudioGram3 is busted. It kinda gets distorted. I think I'm ready to move on to a newer one. You guys already know I'm a frugal person... I see that the Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD is below $80 at Sweetwater.

Anybody with experience on this model?

  • +48V phantom power lets you use studio condenser microphones
  • Switchable input pads accommodate even extremely hot line-level signal
  • Tip-send/Ring-return 1/4" insert points let you incorporate outboard processors
  • MIDI In and Out ports let you connect keyboard controllers and other MIDI gear
  • Stereo 1/4", RCA, and headphone outputs with latency-free monitoring make tracking easy
  • Includes Tracktion DAW and 150 downloadable instrument/effect plug-ins

Tech Specs
  • Computer Connectivity USB 2.0
  • Form Factor Desktop
  • Simultaneous I/O 2 x 4
  • Number of Preamps 2
  • Phantom Power Yes

I use the 404HD on two computers. So far I've been very happy with it. It's nice and quiet.

These two track were recorded with the 404:

I had a 404 arrive DOA (mono only). After several weeks of no parts, no more 404s, Behringer sent me an 1820 to shut me up.

Great interface. Beware the support side.

Greetings FwL :

I listened to both compositions , they are excellent . That Argent number is in my opinion better that the
original .

You two are quite the duo my respects.

I have to concur on that interface being top notch in quietness , the space between the notes makes the
statement to enabling the song rhythm/melody to float freely and elegantly .

Did you use it in the videos on your web page for the analog and midi recordings ?

The video editing is top notch too .

Thanks for sharing those songs .

Thanks for the compliments.

I'm actually not sure on the videos for Goodbye and Carry on. Those were probably done on my old WaMi Rack interface which died in the middle of a project. The vid for Black Hole Sun is the 404.


The MIDI stuff is all virtually rendered in Reaper with the Edirol Sound Canvas vst... no audio interface involved.
