The Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD bridges the gap between your creativity and your fans. This blazingly fast USB 2.0 studio in a box will have you recording your next masterpiece in minutes with all the connectivity required for your microphones, guitars, keyboards and even MIDI devices.

For budget-conscious musicians, producers, and songwriters looking to realize their creative visions in crisp 192 kHz digital resolution, the Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD desktop 2x4 USB 2.0 audio/MIDI interface presents a welcome and user-friendly solution that's equally convenient for recording at home or in any location where inspiration strikes.

The tough, impact-resistant metal UMC204HD interface sports two pro-grade MIDAS-designed mic preamps, accessible via XLR-1/4" combo input jacks. Thanks to its switchable phantom power and per-channel line/instrument buttons, the U-Phoria UMC204HD is ideal for simultaneous recording of two unique sources such as condenser or dynamic microphones, electric guitar/bass, and keyboards. Add tone-enhancing character to your recordings by integrating analog outboard gear such as compressors and EQs (available separately) through the rear-panel 1/4" insert jacks.

Adjust the level for each input from the independent front-panel gain knobs while checking the front-panel LED indicators for signal presence and clipping. If you see the red clip lights, turn down the gain. Adjust the monitor mix knob counterclockwise to hear your live input signal without latency when tracking, or turn it to the right to make a blend of the input and computer playback for overdubbing. There's also a nearby switch for setting the monitor mix to mono or stereo.

With its 1/4" headphone jack and two balanced 1/4" line outputs, the U-PHORIA UMC204HD has no problem handling headphones and professional active monitors. If you want to check your mixes on different monitors, use the four unbalanced RCA line outs to connect two pairs of powered speakers. Separate knobs are allotted for easy control of the headphones and main output levels; turn up the speakers without affecting the headphones and vice versa. An A/B button allows the headphone output to be sourced from outputs 1-2 or 3-4 for DJ-style cueing or independent headphone mixes.

All inputs and outputs are treated to high-resolution AD/DA conversion at up to 24-bit / 192 kHz. Five-pin MIDI I/O ports are provided on the rear panel for connecting MIDI equipment such as a keyboard controller, a drum machine, or a synthesizer. Thanks to its bus-powered design and Mac/Windows compatibility, the U-PHORIA UMC204HD is both convenient and easy to use. Utilize the generous software bundle comprised of DAWs, virtual instruments, and effects, or pair the interface with popular programs such as Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cubase, and more (available separately).

The two pro-grade MIDAS mic preamps feature switchable phantom power to accommodate condenser mics or active DI boxes as well as standard dynamic microphones. The XLR-1/4" combo input jacks can also be used to record balanced line-level signals from a mixer or unbalanced instruments such as electric guitar and bass.
