    Can you use a USB C Cable instead of the USB A interface with the Behringer UM2?  Any recommendations?

      KyleJohnson Hello, Kyle here with Music Tribe. We only recommend using the included USB A to B cable. If you need to connect to a USB C port I recommend using a high quality adapter/cable, preferably from the company who makes your computer.

    I bought a new xenyx QX2222USB mixer, but the USB input is not working with MacBook air. Is there any driver that needs to be installed? However the output to the mixer is working through the macbook. I called Apple and they referred me to Behinger website. Please help?

      RexBeckett Hi stangeo20, the QX2222USB is CoreAudio compliant so should work with your Macbook without any special driver. Two things to check: Make sure that the red USB/2-TR To Main button is not pressed as this will mute the USB recording feed; Check the Mic Privacy settings on the Macbook to ensure that your recording software is permitted to use the audio interface.

      stangeo20 Here is what I found out.

      I was using Behringer Ultralink ULM 200M USB microphone when I created this ticket. So I found that when I use the USB microphone there is no USB Codec signal coming into my MacBook for recording. However I tested today with another microphone and used an XLR cable and the USB codec worked absolutely fine.

      This leads to my next question, the mixer I bought was because it works with Behringer USB mic input. How can this be resolved that I’m able to use both XLR cable inputs and USB200M microphones?

        RexBeckett It sounds as though there could be a problem with the ULM200M rather than the mixer. Try connecting the USB receiver to a PC to see if it works that way.

    Hi all,

    Our church has a Behringer x32 soundboard for our sound system. On the back is the x-USB interface, which we connect to a local iMac that's also in the soundpit. At this point I want to repurpose that USB connection to my MacBook Pro, which is up in the balcony recording video. 

    When reading cable reviews on one of the big box sites, I found several where people were saying that the cable I was looking at does NOT support audio transfer. Kind of caught me off-guard, so that's why I'm here.

    I'm hoping for some kind of recommendation for a USB 2.0 USB cable A/B which won't break the bank. One site had cables labeled as "audiophile" and were asking hundreds of dollars, which is just crazy talk. :-) Without measuring my best guess is we're looking at around 20-25 feet in length.

    Since the MBP is fitted with USB-C connectors I realize I'll have to go through an adapter. But, that's the nature of the game with the newest Apple tech these days.

    Thanks!!

    Robert

      Paul_Vannatto Hi Robert, I have used a 16' (5M) active USB 2.0 extension cable (similar to this JF-USB-2-0-Active-Extension-Repeater-Cable-Signal-Booster-Extended-Cord - do a search on ebay) with a standard 6' USB cable with the X32 X-USB and X-Live cards (also used it with an MR18) without any issues. That would reach about 22'. Add your USB 2 to USB C converter and it might be enough for your setup. I do see that they also have a 10M (about 32'), but can't confirm if it will work correctly.

      DaveMorrison Are you asking about connecting the 8Pre's USB cable into the Built -in USB hub on the X-Touch so you have just one cable going to your computer? If this is the case case, the answer is Maybe. I've had good luck connecting audio interfaces through the hub on the X-Touch, but not everyone has. It depends on the computer's USB ports, the Audio Interface's USB interface, the USB cable, and some luck. In theory, it ought to work, but you have to try it on your system to know for sure.

      • Motu 8pre usb into Behringer X-Touch
        tazzboy Yes that is what I am asking the USB on the Motu is 2.0 So I was wondering since I have read on the manual that you can plug in a keyboard and mouse that has USB capabilities I thought I would ask to find out if you can do the same with a Preamp audio interface.

      DaveMorrison Give it try. You won't hurt anything and it might work for you.

        tazzboy True the only thing bad that might happen is that doesn't work at worse. Then again it might work and Behringer would smart to make it happen or letting people know.

        DaveMorrison It works for me, but it doesn't work for every one. I think that's why Behringer won't say it will.

        tazzboy Well I gave it try and didn't work for me. Oh well on to something else, Now I need to figure out to get the X-touch and Motu 8pre to communicated with one another when using.

    I'm using a Behringer Guitar 2 USB cable to connect my electric guitar to a Mac mini, running GarageBand in monitor mode. All software is up to date. As soon as I start playing all is good, but after a few minutes the system starts building a sensible amount of delay. The only way to reset this effect is by removing the cable from the USB port and then plugging it again or quitting GarageBand and running it again.

    How can I fix this? Is there a way to prevent this delay from building up?

      DavidKnighton Hello Diego Eichert,
      It's possible the system buffer in Garageband is loading down. Is there a way to increase/decrease the buffer size in Garageband? How are you utilizing the DAW anyways? For example, if you're using the DAW for live effects, then that's probably not ideal. Most DAWs are not suited for live use because of latency, so you should not be monitoring directly from the DAW, but rather directly from your guitar rig.
