  1. Tuning In

    I bought a UMC202HD then I bought this because it was such a great productI have been using a UMC202HD which is a two channel version and I needed a second audio interface for a PC in another room so I decided to get the 404HD this time around because I’m so impressed and happy with the product. The quality of sound is ridiculously good considering the price. The build is pretty good, but of course it’s not as solid as something costing far more. I can feel the slightest amount of play with the knobs and phones input so I can already tell without opening it that it’s directly mounted to the circuit board without any support. I don’t expect this to be a problem for me as since I don’t tweak the knobs as often as someone running a professional studio.I don’t have a dedicated recording studio and my microphones are not in the thousand dollar range, so the benefits of a super expensive interface would have made no difference in my situation. I record at home so the acoustics aren’t optimized like a purpose built studio where the differences are perceptible.I use Audacity a lot and because that software can’t do multiple interfaces at the same time, so the 404HD gives me more channels so that I can record from multiple microphones which allows me to choose and mix. It also allows me to not have to physically swap inputs and change input settings and levels along with that. I’d rather not wear out the panel connectors either. I don’t necessarily regret buying the 202HD, but after buying the 404HD, I think that for the extra money, it is worth having the extra channels if simply for the convenience and future proofing.

    Broken USB Cable. Otherwise great sound.The unit arrived with a non functional USB cable. It was a bit of a headache setting up with the Mac, I assumed it was something to do with Apples silicon. Luckily we had a few usb cables laying around so I didn’t bother returning it. However, this makes me feel insecure about the longevity of the product.

    As described and shipped promptly.I bought this to replace the same Behringer model which I lost to a home fire this summer. As far as I’m concerned, this unit is the cat’s meow when it comes to audio interfaces for home studio recording on computer, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make ultra clean, ultra low latency recordings without having to spend a fortune to do so.

  5. Topcat2000

    Great Product But Useless Documentation – Still worth BuyingI once bought a model kit of a vintage 1900’s car that boasted it had over 100 parts. However the assembly instructions consisted of a single small sheet that showed the chassis of the car and over a hundred arrows showing where each part went. It was all there but it was also useless.The pitiful documentation they include with this product does a great disservice to its quality and usefulness. There are a lot of YouTube videos and blogs talking about how to use it but it really underlines the fact that it is missing important documentation with reasonable explanations of usage.The two missing stars are for the lack of documentation, not for the quality and value of the product.

    Too quiet, weird outputs.This interface is way too quiet! I had it cranked all the way up & it wasn’t even as loud as my old mixer at 50%. If you’re podcasting or doing something that you don’t want to mix or playback at very high levels, then I guess this is fine for the $. I found it unusable for recording & mixing music because of this. I compared it to a focusrite 8i6 & the focusrite is definitely much louder. No difference in computer settings, fyi.The other thing is that it has 2 dedicated playback outputs separate from the main monitor outputs. I can’t figure out why anyone would really want that. I like to mix through my monitors and the main outs work for that, so why have not 1 but 2 separate output channels that only do playback?!?! I use my monitors on one output, the mains, then a normal stereo receiver on another output to check the mix, add some low end when I’m jamming & whatnot. So I found these 2 dedicated playback channels to be a total waste. I would think having 2 main output channels & maybe 1 dedicated playback channel would be more useful but really, what’s the point of a playback channel at all because, again, the mains do playback! So along with these playback channels (a/b selectable, btw, can only use one at a time), there’s a “mix” knob. Counter clockwise for the mains, clockwise for playback. So in the middle you basically just castrate both sides exacerbating the quietness issue I complained about before!So I’m returning it, lol!

    All around a good interface that works with UbuntuI bought this after doing a lot of research for one that works with Linux. This interface works right of the box with Ubuntu 18.04. I have my condenser microphone and headphone hooked up to it. I haven’t used it for any recording yet but I’ve used it for some Zoom calls and the sound quality was good. It is only hooked up to the USB so there is no need for additional power supply to get the Phantom Power working.The only con is having the inputs for the mic on the front panel. If you’re trying to run the XLR behind the table, having the XLR ports in the front makes it hard to manage the cables.

    Constantly have to reconnect USB on Windows startup to get sound to workThis device would be 5 stars except I have to reconnect the USB on Windows startup bc the device drivers are not written correctly. I have updated my drivers which eliminated this problem however it’s returned again. This causes problems when say for example trying to join a Zoom meeting on time while I try to figure out why my audio isn’t working. Highly inconvenient when the device doesn’t just work on startup bc of bad coding.

    Good value for the moneyI like this unit overall. It’s easy to use, doesn’t seem to have any major flaws, and it fits perfectly into my workflow.The only negative that I can find is that the pre-maps are a bit finicky. Then tend to overload easily. It’s not a major problem, you just have to make sure that you have your system gain structure set correctly.Other than that one issue, it’s fine little interface!
