    I have both a UMC404HD and UMC1820 that I've been using for a LONG time now. When working with ASIO or Windows WASAPI, the inputs of UMC audio interfaces clip very close to unity (0 dB). For some reason, though, MME and DirectSound drivers for these interfaces have a max level of -6 dB. When recording, this isn't a big issue as it's easy to add digital gain in post. The bigger issue is for real-time use cases like Discord calls, where there's no way to add digital gain to the incoming microphone signal through the UMC driver. This requires everyone in voice calls with me to manually boost my volume level on their end, rather than allowing me to push my loudness to the right level. I ran into a weird situation where I was swapping audio drivers while in a discord call (opened Ableton and started messing around in the audio settings), and the person on the other end mentioned there was a significant jump in volume. At some point, the volume increase reverted and I'm not certain how to reproduce again. This seems to suggest this is a driver-level issue that could be patched with either a firmware or software update. Is there any possibility this could be investigated?

    Yes, there are workarounds like using VoiceMeeter, but this shouldn't be an issue for prosumer audio gear, and I don't want to introduce more latency than necessary.

    Hello. I just bought an ADA8200 to connect to a FCA1616 firepower to expand the inputs. I have finally managed to synchronize everything, the ADA inputs are recognized by the computer and I can record my synthesizers in cubase, but the sound does not reach my monitors. Apparently everything is fine. The inputs of the FCA sound good and the input and output led lights up, but the inputs of the ADA do not give any signal in the FCA, they reach the computer and I can record them but I cannot hear them while playing. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thank you

    Hello, I recently bought the UMC202HD, after watching countless of reviews. I thought it'd be a good option. I'm not a professional, so I was not looking for something extremely expensive, just something that will work.

    When the audio interface arrived, I tested it, and the sound quality is very GREAT. There's no hiss noise, whatsoever. However, it does have VERY low input volume. Whenever I record my voice, it sounds very low, and not only that but the interface also says it's clipping despite of the fact how low it records. I have the gain all the way up, and there's no hissing sound or anything, but even with the gain all the way up, it still doesn't sound loud enough. I was using the SAMSON Q2U, via USB connection and thought that maybe an audio interface would allow me to make that microphone louder, and to reduce the hiss noise, but it actually sounds louder on the USB connection than on the interface. What am I doing wrong? I'm using the XLR cable that came with the SAMSON Q2U. I've already installed the drivers, but the input still sounds low. The audiointerface works, it gets recognized by my computer, and it doesn't have any static, hiss noise. However, it dos have VERY low input volume, which makes me sad because the volume is not enough. What am I doing wrong? Please, help. Thanks.

      john0121 Hi Gonazles, first and easiest things to check:

      - You don't have the PAD button engaged
      - You are providing the mic phantom power if required

      If you're still having problems then please fill out the Tech Support form via the support button and one of our specialists will be able to assist you further.

    I purhcased the UM2 as a pre-amp for our paging system at work. The pager input comes into the 1/4" input, and the amp takes the stereo RCA connection.

    The things I liked about this little unit is that it's very reasonably priced, it had the I/O connections I needed, and I could adjust both the gain and the output.

    What I didn't realize is the power requirement is 100% USB. There's no A/C adapter. I tried a charging block, but the unti won't power on.

     

    Does the UM2 actually need a data packet to power on, or can I wire in a resistor between the D+ and +5 lines? If it's only Data-USB, then I'm going to return it.

    Hello,

    I noticed that my new Behringer UMC204HD always has the power light on, even when I turn off the computer. Is this normal or am I supposed to unplug it everytime? It doesn't have a power button so I'm a bit concerned of leaving it on all the time.

    Thanks!

      KyleJohnson Hello, Kyle here with Music Tribe. That would indicate that your computers USB ports are still providing 5V power while your computer is off. Are you shutting your computer down completely or just putting it in Sleep mode? I'd take a look at your USB power settings in your computers preferences.

      I'm shutting it down completely. I'll try to google how to change the usb power settings. Do you know by any chance how to do it? Thanks!

    I am using UCA202 to record my Keyboard. The monitoring output is perfect but the USB output sound is not quite decent (low frequencies not clear)

    Does this has something to do with sample rate and stuff? Please help me. I am quite new.

      PedroRodrigues Hi aryan12323 I would suggest confirming that you have the ASIO4ALL drivers installed on your computer, it is also important to confirm that you are using a 16-bit 44.1 kHz or 48.0 kHz sample rate. Please confirm that your unit is connected directly to a USB 2.0 port.

    Hello

    i have just purchased the UMC204HD to interface with my iPad, and whilst it can monitor the audio from the iPad, it will not pass on the processed signal from Bias FX2 DAW. I have a powered USB Apple CCK providing ample voltage, but no joy using any DAW.

    Can you assist me please?

    Cheers

    Phil

      DavidKnighton Hello Slartibartfast71,
      You may want to open a support ticket for this. I would suggest hooking the interface up with a computer and confirming that the audio can pass both ways. That way you can be sure the device is not to blame, and to focus your efforts on the iPad connection. Generally, you will need to use the Apple Lighting to USB3 to interface anything with an iPad. If you use an off brand adapter, it might not work as expected, so be sure to use the Apple branded adapter.

    Having just lost my dedicated Tascam 24 track unit, I think I want to venture into DAW recording for the first time.

    I like the look of the umc1820, but want to know how straight forward it is to set up with FL studio 20.

    Could anyone give me assurances from experience, please?

      DavidKnighton Hello Wyshwood,
      I don't have extensive experience with either product, but in general, assigning Input/Outputs to your DAW is relatively straight forward. It's pretty much going to be all contained within the DAW preferences, regardless of what type of interface you're using. The only thing to be mindful of is whether your computer is Windows operating system, as it will require a driver for the interface to operate properly.

    Hi there,

    I have a UMC202HD audio interface plugged into my Lenovo laptop, and a pair of Taotronics headphones plugged into the phones jack of the interface with a 1/4" adapter. I recently noticed (through this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkObqRUvpRY) that when I the "left" audio is playing I can hear it in both ears, and with the "right" there's just silence. 

    How do I fix this? I've tried re-intalling drivers but that didn't do anything. I also tried to unlink the left and right sides on the UMC control panel "levels" section but that didn't do it.

    Any help? Thanks
