    Hello, I have just got a Behringer U-Phoria UMC202HD and I am wondering how I can register my product.

    I am also wondering what software I should use for recording audio.

    Thank you

    I am looking to replace some old audio interfaces. I'm interested in the UMC1820, but I have questions about how Windows will treat it in regards to playback/recording (outputs/inputs). 

    In other words, if I am working on a mix in my DAW that contains more than 20 channels, how will that mix be played back through this interface if I need to record additional parts?


    I have 2 older devices for demonstration of what I'm talking about.


    Device 1 - 16 channel mixer

    The computer recognizes 18 inputs from this mixer which includes the 16 individual channels plus whatever mix is sent to the main left and right. The computer also recognizes the mixer as a stereo output device.  With this mixer, I can record up to 18 tracks at a time into my DAW, but no matter how many total tracks are in my project, the stereo output is played back through the main left and right of my mixer.

    I can record additional parts along with my playback and either monitor them directly through the analog mixer session or through the USB output.


    Device 2 - 2 channel audio interface



    The computer recognizes 2 microphone inputs plus a stereo output. I can record two tracks at a time and playback my main mix to the audio interface. A blend knob allows me to set levels between the live instruments and the DAW playback.


    I recently tried another interface that had 10 inputs and 10 outputs over USB.  Unfortunately, it was a poorly thought out design. Each individual channel requires a physical switch to select whether it is used as USB input or output. The DAW could play back only the first 10 tracks to channels 1 through 10, and the overall stereo output also plays back on channels 1 and 2 instead of being sent directly to this interface's main outputs or headphones.  Because of this implementation, it is very difficult to record additional parts while playing back an existing mix from the DAW.

    With the Mac system below, U-Phoria UMC204HD causes Logic Pro 10.7.4 to display the message "Error while trying to synchronize audio and MIDI". When this happens, the Logic song slows down, stutters, and sounds like it is breaking apart. I have tried all the troubleshooting methods that I know of in order to fix this problem, but the only thing that stops the error from occurring is to unplug U-Phoria UMC204HD and not use it at all.

    On my previous pre-M1/Monterey system (an iMac running Catalina), U-Phoria UMC204HD was a pleasure to use, so I am hoping that Behringer might be releasing a firmware update that might fix this new synchronization error. Are there any plans to do that?

    Here is the system that U-Phoria UMC204HD is not working with:
    Mac Studio
    Apple M1 Ultra
    64 GB

      NicJonesMT Hi There.
      Can you please click support at the top of the page and submit a technical support ticket.
      We need to know as much detail on your setup as possible (Sample rate, Bit Depth, USB connections ETC).

      PedroRodrigues Hi MaxSaturation, thank you for your post, please ponder that this alert appears when the sample rate of an incoming audio signal doesn't match the project's sample rate or if the sample rate fluctuates. It appears most often when using an external audio interface, an external sync device, or plug-ins.

      When using an external audio interface such as UMC204HD with Logic Pro, the sample rate for your UMC204HD should adjust automatically to match the sample rate of your project. Sometimes, however, sample rate settings might not match. Check to make sure the sample rate settings match.
      Please confirm that your UMC204HD is set up with the same sample rate than your project on you Logic Pro.
      I would also suggest checking your project’s sample rate, choose File > Project Settings > Audio.
      If your project's sample rate doesn't match your interface's sample rate, select the correct sample rate from the Sample Rate pop-up menu.
      If your project’s sample rate does match your UMC204HD’s sample rate, select a different sample rate from the Sample Rate pop-up menu, then set it back to the original sample rate.

      I would also suggest increasing the I/O buffer size, to increase the I/O buffer size in Logic Pro, choose Logic Pro > Preferences > Audio, then choose a larger size from the I/O Buffer Size pop-up menu.
      Freeze any tracks in your project that have plug-ins.
      Check sync settings if you're syncing other applications or devices to Logic Pro, or if you're syncing Logic Pro to another application or device.
      It is also important to take into o account that when syncing another application or device that can generate MIDI timecode (MTC) or MIDI clock to Logic Pro, turn off “Auto-enable external sync and Tap Tempo.” Choose File > Project Settings > Synchronization, then deselect “Auto-enable external sync and Tap Tempo.”

      When syncing Logic Pro to another application or device using MTC, do the following:

      Make sure the application or device generating MTC is not also generating MIDI clock. See the documentation for your application or device for more information.

      With your Logic Pro project open choose File> Project Settings > Synchronization, click the Audio tab, then select External or Free from the Core Audio pop-up menu.

      I would suggest testing it by first using the built-in audio on your Mac instead of the your UMC204HD and then changing it again to the UMC204HD
      Unplug your external audio interface from your Mac.
      Open Logic Pro, then choose Logic Pro > Preferences > Audio.
      Choose Built-in Output from the Output Device pop-up menu.
      Choose Built-in Microphone (or Built-in Input, depending on your computer) from the Input Device pop-up menu.
      For last follow all these steps again to re-select your UMC204HD as the main audio device.

      I hope this helps

      Thank you

      • U-Phoria UMC204HD not working with Monterey & Apple M1 Ultra
        MaxSaturation Hi Pedro,

        Thanks so much for this detailed response.

        Regarding sample rates that do not match, and I/O buffer size: Yes, I am aware of those concerns. Please let me just mention that I have been recording on DAWs for over two decades, so I am approaching this problem with some experience. Also, it is important to note that the problem did not exist when I was using exactly the same Logic file on an earlier machine and Logic version: an iMac 2019, running the latest Catalina, and Logic Pro 10.6.3.

        But now that the very same Logic file is being used on a Mac Studio M1 Ultra running Logic Pro 10.7.4, the only problem which I am seeing is when I plug in the U-Phoria UMC204HD. As soon as I do that, the synchronization error appears.

        On this Mac Studio, Logic's I/O buffer size is at the maximum, and no tracks need to be frozen (again, the file played perfectly on a much less powerful iMac, so it should be playing even better on the Mac Studio -- i.e. I should not need to freeze tracks). Also, I am not sync'ing to any other apps or devices.

        As for troubleshooting by first using the Mac's built-in headphone out, and built-in mic (with the UMC204HD disconnected): I have done that multiple times. Again, when the UMC204HD is disconnected, my Logic file works perfectly on the Mac Studio. It is only when I plug in the UMC204HD that the sync error appears.

        At this point, with so much time invested in trying to troubleshoot this issue with the UMC204HD (with no success), I think I will simply upgrade to a different interface instead.

        I do have one last question, if you don't mind. You mentioned that although the UMC204HD adjusts automatically to match the sample rate of your project, there is a way to "Check to make sure the sample rate settings match". How does one do that, since the UMC204HD does not have a driver/interface window?

        Thanks again for taking the time to respond.

    After a recent update of Windows 10 (possibly the 21H2 update), the interface is no longer working.

    Hi, I have only just purchased X32 Producer having problems connecting to MacBook Pro, I use MainStage & Logic Pro with Midi controllers A-Pro Roland DTX Multi12. I have USB lead from X32 into powered Hub to Mac Thunderbolt, please could you give exact steps to make connections. In the Midi Studio 'X USB' is greyed out, do I need to download Driver? My Configuration is 32in 32out. I would like to clear everything reset start again, I need exact pathway, many thanks, Steve

    Hi Everyone.

    Im wanting to record video and livestream via my Android phone . I have the phone connected via a USB-C OTG adaptor. I can only record from Channel 1 even though I'm hearing both channels through my headphones.

    Any ideas most welcome.

    Thank you

      PedroRodrigues Hi Osca31thnak you for your post, please consider that is not a supported configuration for the UMC22, this unit must be used connected directly to a computer running Mac or Windows via USB 2.0 avoiding any USB adaptors, as stated on the manual to operate as standard. Thank you

    I have a solo act, where I try to do everything at once, using multiple instruments, and generally post stream live as well as play in front of live crowds.


    I'm looking for entry level, expandable Analog to Digital XLR & 1/4" interfaces, 8 channel or greater, that isn't extremely expensive that I can also utilize through common interfaces such as OBS Studio...I'm not sure if I need an Ableton or another type of software, but wanted to get started with some recommendations.

    (I have a 6 channel USB mixer that currently serves me well, to pick up the pro audio and send it over to OBS.

    So, I'm using two computers, one monitor, switching back and forth. One for regular use, one strictly for music production... but I don't want to use two sets of speakers, so I still want my interface to act as audio for both computers. I've tried simply splitting the USB with a Y cable, USB B to two USB A, but only one computer recognizes the interface (and I don't seem to be able to choose which computer, but as it happens it's the correct one for music production). Is there a way to do this?

      NicJonesMT Hi Tindog13.
      You could try running the UMC into a powered USB hub, and then run this into a USB splitter. I currently do this to have devices like speakers, keyboard and mouse to swap between my Work and Gaming PC.
      One thing to note, We do not normally recommend connecting to a USB hub, as these can cause connectivity issues.

      The only other option would be to unplug your UMC and connect it directly to a different PC.

      tindog13 Yeah, I was thinking that might be something to try. Think I'll ask around if someone has one to borrow to try first. Thanks.

      As an update, the powered hub did not solve the problem. With the splitter cable at least one computer was recognized, but with the powered hub neither computer is recognized. So unless anyone has any other suggestions I guess I have to have a separate set of speakers for the non-production computer, powered by its internal sound card.

    Hello Guy's,

    Maybe its already discusted but i can't find it.

    so i can't find it in the device manager as a audio device.

    I installed manualy behringer USB Audio 2.8.40 (now it works perfect)

    only i hear ever 3 maybe 5 minutes a beeping tone ( if its a trail version).

    anybody that have the same problem or have a diverend driver to use?
