Reading the other reviews, I see a few other ppl have bought this unit and had issues, but I've had this rig for over a year now and problem free! In fact, for all the trash-talking of behringer stuff online, I've bought a few of their products so far and have yet to have anything really disappoint me! I use this interface almost exclusively for recording drums and also make use of the multiple outputs when mixing (nice to A/B diff sets of monitors). Fairly versatile interface for the price, truth be told. In terms of sound quality, tbh I don't really hear THAT much difference between the preamps on this unit and on my focusrite 2i2! More discriminating ears MIGHT hear the difference, but you'd have to be very picky. Bottom line: if you record at home and are on a tight budget, like I am...this is a great little interface. Gets the job done.

Good day, I have had a number of ADA8000's in the past, and currently have an ADA8200. However, I now require a 4-Channel USB audio interface. So, I thought that the UMC would be great alternative. I have not had any issues with either of the ADA's. Though I have had great success with the phantom powered inputs, when I began using the instrument inputs, I did have two issues, 1) I am unable to use the instrument input as it clips even with no gain set. So, I have to use the PAD, 2) the UMC "majorly colours" the instrument input - especially when using an amp sim such as Overloud's TH3. An incredible amount of midrange is being heard - especially with the bridge pickup. I did an A/B test using another interface and "Yes", there is a very noticeable difference between the two - with the other interface being more of what I am used to hearing. I am not sure if this is defective unit, but I am disappointed as this interface works very well otherwise.

Easy to use, simple learning curve, solid build quality, excellent value for the money. It fares quite well in 'blind' audio tests against much more expensive competitors.

Typical Behringer quality. It's a copy of the Steinberg UR44. You get what you pay for I suppose. It works as advertised but there are better AI's out there for sure. If you are on a budget, then this is a good choice. The main output level is very low compared to my onboard soundcard. I have to really crank up the amplifiers for speakers, headphones, etc. There is also a slight clicking on the main outs, a bit anoying. I wouldn't purchase this again, although I mush have bought the last one in the entire world because the entire world has been out of stock for over 6 months. You can't find these anywhere.
