Product Description

The Behringer U Control UCA202 USB Audio Interface is a quick and easy upgrade to your sound
Looking for a simple, affordable way to get your music into the digital realm? Or maybe you’d like to connect your computer to an external effects unit or recorder? Want to transfer your old cassette tapes to CD? The fastest, easiest way to get analog audio into your computer is with the U-CONTROL UCA202 Audio Interface.

PC and Mac Ready
This ultra-compact, USB-powered device lets you connect your PC or Mac computer to virtually any piece of audio gear. And the UCA202 requires no special setup or drivers—just plug it in to a free USB port and get busy. Requires Windows XP or 2000 and Mac OS9.0.4 or higher, 10.x or higher.

The UCA202 provides two analog mono inputs and outputs (for monitoring), USB connectivity and an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct analog-to-digital conversion. The stereo headphone output features a dedicated level control and lets you listen to both the input and output.

Imagine the possibilities…
When used as a professional interface between a mixing console and your computer, myriad options become available. Some of these might include connecting the UCA202 RCA outputs: to the TAPE INPUT jacks of your mixer; to powered monitors or to the input channels on the mixer. Connecting to the mixer input channels allows you to use the Aux Send feature of your mixer to build an extremely versatile monitor mix for recording sessions. These are just a few of the possibilities; let us know how you use your UCA202.

Good construction quality, good value very simmple and easy to use.

Product Rating4 out of 5 stars.


simple, effective, utilitarian

definitely well made - I've been using this with an analog mixer for a number of years and have had no problems.

The best feature of this product, IMHO, is that it is simple. It does one thing alone but does it well - getting plugged into the world of DAW's.

Super easy to use. Windows recognizes it as an audio device instantly, no need for installing special drivers. You'll be up and running in literally under a minute.

Certainly a GREAT value for about thirty bucks. If mine broke I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Its appearance is simple, not much to look at; a wire with a USB attached to a box with 2ins/2outs RCA.

Simple IS still best

I don't think it is flimsy as some claims say. It could have been put in a metal box, but really doesn't need it.

Absolutely a plug and play device,

Plug and play, no learning curve involved. Connect to USB and your outs to ins and ins to outs. Your in business

Sleek and compact

Simplicity is best sometimes

I will agree with the other reviewer about the price point of Behringer products, if you drop it - it will probably break. However, this has no effect on its functionality. It is what it is, and it definitely does what it says it does.

I can't believe this $30 A/D converter just replaced a few hundred dollars worth of gear!

Plugged it in, on Vista 64-bit, windows downloaded drivers, working! Using Reaper at the moment, became skeptical and tried something other than Sonar PE.

The best value hands down.

Looks great I guess.

Nice Simple Interface

I have had pretty good experience with Behringer. I have one of their mixers that I will use with this device to connect to my computer. The newer mixers already have a USB output.

Simple and inexpensive.

Very easy to use. Will save me a lot of plugging and unplugging from my computers sound card when I switch from record to playback.

Excellent value.

Looks well made.

Extremely Great Value!!

The technology packed in this small unit is impressive. Nice design, simple and effective.

The best feature of this unit is the great recording quality that you get. I recorded using Audacity, and had crisp clear sound. The software available via download from Behringer is awesome!!

Connection to PC is effortless. Hardware is recognized immediately, as well as my audio effects hardware. Make sure to use a stereo output from your mixer or effects unit. Use gold plated RCA's in and out. I am playing back my recordings through my home theatre system using the RCA outputs on the unit itself. The sound quality is amazing!! No Noise!!

Excellent Value, lots of free downloadable software.

The size of this product is slightly bigger than a cellphone. It matches todays high tech products.

It's the real deal

The quality stands out for such a cheap audio interface.

Not too many but the connection types are adequate for the price.

Very easy to setup.If you want to use timecode vinyl in virtual dj you can download the asio4all driver and use both of them simultaneously with real low latency yet not sacrificing the quality.

Come on people buyout AMS stock because this is a giveaway.How many can recall buying a audio interface which is asio2 compatible and is virtually driver less.

Pretty great I have to say,with the nice black and beige finish which blends with my ps -121x mixer.I bought two of these babies from AMS.

I just got it so I don't know how durable it is but it seems like it's built well.

It does what it says it does on the manual. for the price, you can't ask for more although it would have been nice if it had quarter inch inputs.

Plug and play. I didn't have anyproblem with mine. But this could be due to the fact that I already have the necessary drivers installed from other recording equipment. It might be more troublesome for other people...I'm not sure...

$30 for this is great. GREAT! Everyone(including non-musicians) that has a pc/laptop with stock soundcard should get it. It improves the sound quality quite a bit.

case is plastic, but it does not look cheap. very nice looking.

Behringer Does it Again!

This unit is well made with strong features and online support. I expect to get much use. The metal housing gives a sense of security. I'm not afraid to connect and disconnect. Not fragile at all. I use a little Di-Electric grease on all of my connectors to cut down on friction when removing RCA plugs.

The best features include the headphone input and volume control. The optical output is also a plus. A big step up from the original U-Control unit.

Plug in and use! In doesn't get any better than that. When creating new music you don't need lengthy setups which can kill the mood. I was working within minutes the first day and since then turn on the PC and record.

The metal housing alone makes the unit a great value. Then all of the features and Behringer quality put the icing on the cake.

This unit looks more expensive than it costs. My drummer asked how much it cost and when I told him, he thought I was joking.
