any opinions on Behringer stuff for recording to laptop/PC?

Postby LesFromChicago » Tue Jan 06, 2015 8:52 pm

Anyone have opinions or advice on the following options (for vocal & guitar) ? Thanks.

Behringer UCG102 Guitar Link USB Audio Interface, 1/4 inch to USB ($40 US)

Behringer U-PHORIA UMC22 is an audiophile 2x2 USB audio interface with a MIDAS mic preamplifier. ($80 US)

Behringer U-PHORIA UMC202 like UMC22 above but each input has pre-amp. ($120 US)

Behringer U-PHORIA UMC202HD (might also be known as UMC204) 2x2 USB Audio/MIDI Interface ($100 US)

Behrenger stuff doesn't seem to last too long. I'm having better luck - but not that much better - with and Alesis multimix 4 - less troublesome than the Alesis multimix 8 it's replacing. On the eight, digital artifacts of the effects seemed to bleed into things even with the effects off. The four has no effects...

I've been recording through a Behringer Eurorack UB1202 mixer > UCA202 into imac, for the last 2 years.

I have a couple small Euroracks that I have used for a variety of purposes. I have had them several years and no problems. Some other Behringer stuff though, is ...well, not so great.
