      Hello Ashish, welcome to the community.


       


      Windows should install the UMC22 using its standard USB audio drivers. Most audio software should be able to use the device through the WASAPI interface. Windows will show the UMC22 as USB Audio Codec or USB Audio Device


       


      The optional ASIO4ALL driver is only necessary if you must have an ASIO interface. This driver works with the WASAPI device mentioned above and provides an ASIO interface for DAW software. It can give lower latency than using the WASAPI device directly.


       


      What driver are you trying to install? What error messages are you getting?

      Hi @Ashish_Cherian 


      Make sure you have the USB cable plugged into a USB 2.0 port (usually black), not a USB 3.0 (usually blue).

      Thank you for the response. I'm using ASIO4ALL driver. But in Device Manager, the USB audio device is showing with the 'caution' symbol. I can't update driver from there. Can you please help me in installing the driver.

    Hi guys,

    For  years I've used my computer's onboard soundcard, but as I've just picked up a midi keyboard, and I wanted really low latency, I needed something with an ASIO driver. So I got a Behringer 204HD. And for that purpose - it works great. I have my keyboard plugged in via MIDI and I am using 8 samples so I get 1ms latency, it's a dream.

    However, obviously using the UMC Asio drivers my speakers can't work unless I plug them directly into my audio interface instead of my soundcard.

    As it is, I use a 5.1 speaker system that I'm pretty attached to. Normally, I plugged it via the sub into my PC with realtek onboard drivers with two 3.5mm jacks, green and black (it also has an orange one for centre speaker but I'm not precious about it, I doubt there is a scenario where that is going to work). Then the 4 tweeters plug in via RCA ports on the back of the speaker. I then use Realtek's surround fill to get my music to play from all the tweeters instead of just stereo.

    Now I have moved everything over to the interface. So I got adaptors that convert the 3.5mm jacks to 1/4" jacks and I plugged them into the Main Output sockets on the back of the 204HD.

    Then in Windows when I'm not in my DAW and simply using MME for standard operation, listening to music etc, I have my default playback device set to the 204HD's OUT 1-2, which as I understand it outputs through the two output ports and 2 of the RCA playback output ports too. I then have turned on Virtual Surround in the Enhancements.

    However, it only plays through tweeters 1 and 2 (even if I do a surround test). Now, this makes sense to me in a way, I only have 2 jacks so why should 5 speakers work? However, it has always been plugged into my computer by the same two wires before and I could always get 5 speaker audio before.

    I know that I could get two more monitor speakers with their own power supplies and plug them into the RCA ports to get more speakers running, but I can't do that with the tweeters because obvs they are powered from the main box and nothing would amplify the signal.

    Is this a lost cause or is there a way for me to, as before, plug all my tweeters into my sub and have them output despite the sound running through the Behringer?

      Hi Alex ( @Alexrose ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Can you give us the make and model of the speaker system you are using?  I don't think it's possible to do what you want to do with the 204HD but I want to understand how those speakers work first.

      Hi Ken,


      It's a Creative Inspire T6300. It kinda makes sense to me that it wouldn't work; the interface has a left out and right out so in a way, how could that output to 5 speakers? But, at the same time.. my onboard motherboard soundcard was able to do this through two 3.5mm slots so I don't get how it ever worked.

      The 204HD has four outputs on RCA connectors. So you would need two 3.5mm socket to 2 x RCA adaptors. Lime Green plug to 204 outputs 1 & 2 and Black to outputs 3 & 4. You would then have to assign the appropriate outputs from your DAW to feed the correct channnels to your now 4 chan surround speakers. Not really full surround unfortunately since the 204 won't be able to get decoded surround from Dolby/DTS encoded audio files unless you use something like https://ac3filter.net/wiki/AC3Filter

      The RCA won't work because the tweeters don't have amplifiers. The sub contains the amplifier, the tweeters plug into the sub, which plugs into the interface through two 3.5mm jacks.


      Also Windows MME can't even output 3-4 and 1-2 simultaneously anyway, it can only output 1-2 so even if the tweeters were monitor speakers that solution still wouldn't work. I'm trying to get my front and back speakers to operate through normal computer use using MME drivers - which already worked on my onboard soundcard, I don't care about what they're doing in my DAW in ASIO.

      I am not talking about the RCA connectors out of the Sub to the 'Tweeters', as you call them, (it's daft to use RCA for loudspeaker level audio signals anyway IMHO). It is the four RCA outputs on the back of the 204 which need a couple of 3.5mm socket to two RCA adaptor leads as linked to by Ken.

      Hey Guys, 


      New member here with first post. I just bought a TC Electonics Brainwaves and am trying to figure out how to do a very simple effect with it. For the time being I just want to run it mono with a detune effect. I just want the dry signal and 6 or 7 cent effect on it. No delay, no repeats, none of the 2nd's, 3rds, 4ths or other semi tones or octaves. Just a straight forward 6 or 7 cents that I can mix in. I drove all over this town to find the appropriate cable and have downloaded the tone print app. But I can's find where you can set individual cents. Can anyone help? Thank you,

    How do I connect headphones to the Behringer UMC1820 interface so I can listen to sound from the computer? It seems like it wasnt meant to but it has to be. Im confued and angry : ( !!!

    Also: Connecting to the line outputs makes me hear the left earphone, and interestingly enough, when i plug it in half the way, I have stereo... But the quality is poor

      Hello Mateusz, welcome to the community.


       


      The UMC1820 Phones output can be set to monitor USB playback 3/4 or a mix of USB playback 1/2 and the inputs - which is controlled by the Mix knob. Connecting stereo headphones to the balanced mono line outputs will not work correctly.


       


      Most of the time when people have problems using headphones with UMC interfaces it is because the headphones have four-pole TRRS plugs intended for smartphones. To use these with a normal stereo TRS outputs, it is necessary to use an adapter cable like this between the headphone plug and the 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter.

       I dont think beyerdynamic DT880 are intended for phones...
       


      Yeah, I kind of forgot to mention, obviously i tried connecting it to the headphone output if I tried to do line now... Im not that stupid, but connecting it to the headphone out gives no sound at all. I mean obviously, since windows doesnt even recognize this out? Turning the mix knob just makes more and more hissing noise, when its set to mono its in both earcups... But Its still only hissing, and when the mix monitor knob is set to stereo its only left ear. Is it supposed to be like that?


      Can u explain more clearly what do I have to do in order for this to work?? : P

      Did you install the UMC1820 driver? Check in Windows Control Panel -> Device Manager to see if the device is listed under Sound, video and game controllers. If it isn't there or is marked with an error flag, you should uninstall it, disconnect the USB, reboot and then reconnect the USB.


       


      When installed correctly, all the outputs should be listed on Windows Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback. In the device Properties there are settings for the level controls which may need adjustment (to 100%).

      So you are playing music to UMC1820 outputs 1/2, you have headphones connected to one of the UMC's Phones outputs, you have the 1/2 button out and the Monitoring Mix control turned clockwise and you don't hear anything? What software are you using for playback?

    I have a couple of fairly new Tannoy Definition DC10T loudspeakers (2 years) where the dual concentric unit is broken due to a amplifier problem. There are not authorized workshops in Denmark and the producer of the amplifier have agreed to replace the broken unit but have not been able to get the sparepart indicates that Tannoy is not responding.

     

    Is the DC10T and the DC10Ti considered discontinued since you are not able to deliver units for them anymore or get back to the workshop that holds the defective loudspeaker. The loudspeakers is quite expensive (list price 6.500 £) and can still be bought at Nintronics, and according to the homepage of Tannoy offers 10 years of warranty.

     

    I cant be that I have to scrap my 2 years old Tannoy loudspeakers becourse Tannoy are not responsive or what

    OK, I'm just getting started in all this -
    how do I combine the Behringer X-TOUCH ONE with my Korg DW-6000 midi synth keyboard and DAW on windows 10 . . . any simple clear instructions on this would be very much appreciated

    I like the concept / design features of the X-TOUCH ONE, but would like to find out if I can actually use it in this configuration.

    thanks

      Hi Charles ( @charles000 ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Since most setups are specific to the DAW you want to use, we'll need to know what DAW you'll be using before we can help.

      OK, fair enough, very much appreciate your response.


      I've been tinkering with MixPad just to get used to working with a DAW, loading up various VST modules and so on, but now want to focus on a more serious type of DAW.


      So far my choice has narrowed down to Cubase or Reaper . . . both of which have interesting features and can utilize a vast collection of compatible VSTs.


      With either of these, can the X-TOUCH ONE interface with those DAWs and my ancient (but still very much working) Korg DW-6000?


      Again, your help help is very much appreciated.

      Hi Charles, 


       


      I've been a long time Reaper user so I'd recommend you download the fully-functional version and give it a go during the very generous 60-day trial period.  I use a full size X-Touch with Reaper so I haven't looked at the status of the XT1 support but I'll do that this weekend.  As far as the DW-6000, you'll need to get a MIDI interface for your computer in order to get MIDI in and out of your DAW.   It should work fine with Reaper. 


       


      I'll be in touch, 


      Ken

      Thank you for the info!


      So, I'm going to try the Reaper.


      As for MIDI interface, I was looking at some of the Bheringer products - 


      Behringer X-TOUCH ONE seems intriguing, but might be overkill.


      If you happen to have a suggestion for the MIDI interface, nothing too fancy, I'll probably just go with that.


      Many thanks

    Hey folks,

    I own the  MS40 monitors that have built in DAC. The manual says it is >24bit 192kHz.

    My question is how does it go about handling digital feed, example Lpcm or RAW audio via optical?

    Does the built in DAC upsample any digital signal to 24/192 for analogue or does it decode/convert the digital signal to match the fed sample rate?

    Thanks!

    Chris

      The monitors accept standard SPDIF LPCM digital audio at whatever sample rate/bit depth you send to them. The DAC will simply just convert these signals directly to analogue to drive the onboard amps. No clever DSP involved.

      Hello Matias, welcome to the community.


       


      I believe the DN360 inputs and outputs are unbalanced (unless the optional transformers are fitted). I think it would be best to use phase invert cables or adapters in case the other units do not have fully balanced inputs and outputs.

      @mati1979 


      The transformer option was quite expensive. Odds are that your unit doesn't have them. You could just connect it and see if it works. If not try something like this on the inputs and outputs.

      I have 4 audio animatronic controller boards that are activated when sound is ran through them. I would like to be able to utilze my Behringer 204HD for this and export the audio to 4 separate channels. I've created the tracks with Audacity, but it only has the capability of exporting 2 channels. Just need specific software that has the ability to edit tracks and export into 4 channels. Does this make more sense? Thanks for the help.

      Hi Ryan, 


       


      Just about any DAW (digital audio workstation) software will do what you want.  One that's popular around here is Reaper which comes with a 60 free trial and is only $60 to purchase after that.  If you want something that is free take a look at Tracktion T7.


       


      BTW, sounds like a fun project.  Is this for a theatre production or for a Halloween setup or something else? 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      I will definitely check out Reaper for the free trial and then if it works, I can decide if I want to spend $60. I think I tried downloading Tracktion last year and ran into issues so I gave up on it. 


      This is for my Halloween setup I have at my house (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6czEVZX-wU). RIght now I have 2 characters running off my computer and then have a local iPod I have to turn on for others. If this works, it gives me the ability to expand the amount of animated characters I can have. Thanks for your help Ken!

      Very cool!  Let me know if you need a hand with Reaper.  Tracktion has had stability issues in the past.  I've been using Reaper for about 9 years in a lot of theatrical productions as well as personal projects.   Most of my theatre work these days is in soundscapes and audio special effects.  We use MIDI and OSC messages, as well as Ethernet UDP packets to trigger sound effects based on various electro-mechanical events. 


       


      I noticed a Washington license plate and of U of W helmet in one of your videos.  I'm in California, so same TZ.

    Hi, I keep trying to raise a support ticket for my mixer but can't get anywhere... the DX626 isn't listed as an option, plus even when I choose a different mode I can't submit the ticket: I just get a constant 'loading' symbol.

    One of the phono ports on the mixer has died, meaning I get no sound from that speaker. Mixer is well within its warranty but I can't get through to customer service!

    Can anyone help?
