For musicians, podcasters, and producers looking to realize their creative visions on a miniscule budget, the Behringer U-PHORIA UMC22 desktop 2x2 USB 1.1 audio interface presents a welcome and user-friendly solution that's equally convenient for recording at home or in any location where inspiration strikes.

The tough, impact-resistant metal UMC22 interface sports a pro-grade MIDAS-designed mic preamp—accessible via an XLR-1/4" combo mic/line input jack—and a separate 1/4" Hi-Z instrument input, enabling simultaneous recording of two unique sources such as a vocal mic and a guitar. Switchable phantom power is on hand for condenser mics and active DI boxes. Engage direct monitoring to hear your live input signal without latency.

Adjust the level for each input from the independent front-panel gain knobs while checking the front-panel LED indicators for signal presence and clipping. If you see the red clip lights, turn down the gain.

Monitoring your audio is simple, too. With its 1/4" headphone jack and two balanced 1/4" line outputs, the U-PHORIA UMC22 has no problem handling headphones and professional active monitors. A single output knob on the front panel controls the level for both output destinations.

All inputs and outputs are treated to quality AD/DA conversion at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution. Thanks to its bus-powered design and Mac/Windows compatibility, the U-PHORIA UMC22 is both convenient and easy to use. Utilize the generous software bundle comprised of DAWs, virtual instruments, and effects, or pair the interface with popular programs such as Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cubase, and more (available separately).

UMC22 vs UM2

Though very similar in concept and design to the UM2 interface, the slightly larger UMC22 incorporates some key upgrades. In place of the studio-grade XENYX pre found on the UM2, the UMC22 boasts a pro-grade MIDAS-designed mic preamp for improved performance. Also, whereas the UM2 has unbalanced RCA line outs, the UMC22 comes with balanced 1/4" TRS line outputs.

MIDAS Microphone Preamp

The single pro-grade MIDAS mic preamp features switchable phantom power to accommodate condenser mics or active DI boxes as well as standard dynamic microphones. The XLR-1/4" combo input jack can also be used to record a line-level signal from a mixer. Next to the mic/line input, you'll find a dedicated 1/4" Hi-Z input for direct connection of your electric guitar, electric bass, keyboard, or synthesizer.

Headphone and Balanced Line Outputs

With a 1/4" headphone jack on the front and two balanced 1/4" line output jacks on the rear, the U-PHORIA UMC22 can drive headphones and a pair of professional active monitors. All inputs and outputs are treated to quality AD/DA conversion at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution.

Front-Panel Input and Output Controls

The UMC22's front panel has everything you need for smooth, efficient operation of the interface's primary functions. Adjust the level for each input from the independent gain knobs while checking the LED indicators for signal presence and clipping. A single output knob controls the level for the headphone and line output jacks at the same time.

Zero-Latency Monitoring

Engage the interface's direct monitoring function to hear your input signal without latency. This will prevent the talent from being distracted by an echo of their live performance.

Bus Powered

The UMC22 compact desktop interface is bus powered via USB (USB cable included), so you don't need to carry around a power supply or batteries. Since it utilizes the USB 1.1 standard and is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems, you can easily use it on a variety of computers, even older machines with minimal system resources.

Bundled Software

The U-PHORIA UMC22 comes with free audio recording, editing, and podcasting software plus 150 instrument and effects plug-ins, allowing you to start production on your next project as soon as possible.
