behringer um2 audio interface reviewOur Behringer UM2 Audio Interface review claims this is the most affordable on the market.

Compared to others, it is, Behringer makes really great quality products.

If you want to start recording onto your computer and you just don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars, here is the best option for you!

Behringer Um2 Audio Interface Review

Just because this is so cheap doesn’t mean you get less, here are some great features:

  • 2- instrument in puts (USB audio Interface) Comes with cable
  • 48 kHz professional sound
  • Works with alot of DAW software (pro tools, abelton, cubase, etc.) Comes with tracktion 4
  • Very Affordable
  • Just Plug in and go
  • 48v phantom power

So what we really like about this is, it’s so cheap you can’t go wrong if you’re just getting started out recording. Whether it be, music or podcast type of stuff.

The Behringer UM2 is a great Audio Interface.

It’s a two-channel input. One is a combo socket for XLR or 1/4″, the other is just a 1/4″ guitar input. So, you have some options there. Works great for both mac and pc.

Behringer Uphoria Um2Comes with Software, DAW

It comes with a card you can register and download for tracktion.  Free audio recording, editing and podcasting software plus 150 instrument/effect plug-ins downloadable at behringer.com. But this will work with lots of other digital audio workstations.

The UM2 is extremly compatible with almost all of the popular recording software including Avid Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Steinberg Cubase, etc. Pick your favorite one and start recording and mixing!

On board preamps

Built into this little guy are some great Studio quality preamps. They have low-noise and plenty of headroom for you. XENYX preamps offer 130dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz.

For someone who doesn’t under stand that mumbo-jumbo talk, it pretty much means, your microphones will sound like really expensive ones!

Monitor your performance (UM2 Mix control)

You also get direct monitor control with the push of a button. Which means, you can either send the sound to your studio monitors or listen in your headphones.

The separate knob can turn the monitor up or down without disturbing the recording.

This is a great cheap studio in a box. However, we must point some of the things we noticed that you should take note of.  There are always some cons, and this Behringer Um2 Audio Interface Review only has some minor ones.

This is a plastic body and the knobs and inputs are loose and seem kind of cheap. And, if you have the gain 3/4 up, we noticed extra noise. No big, deal.

I personally love Behringer, I own several pieces of their equipment and love that they offer such affordable stuff. With the UM2, you cannot go wrong. Just starting out recording or podcasting, this is a good place to start for super cheap!

Conclusion

This Behringer Um2 Audio Interface Review has gone over all the specs and bells and whistles.  Here is the deal, if you have a computer and want to multi-track record but you dont want to spend all the money, this is your best option.  You’ll see how much you can really do with this little guy.
