Testing for the first time my audio interface. This is Behringer U-PHORIA UMC22. In this demo, I tested only the instrument input where I plugged-in my guitar. Unfortunately, I still do not have a microphone to test the mic input. First, I recorded the sound of guitar using the standard built-in mic from camcorder, then I recorded again using this UMC22 Audio Interface via guitar Fishman Clearwave60 pickup. I used a free audio recording software called Audacity. I initially had a problem when there was no sound getting into the PC. So, I checked the Control Panel settings for Audio and set it to DVD quality stereo. After that, I was able to get signal from the R (right channel). As you can see in the recording software, it was only recording on 1 channel (R channel). The L (left channel) is for the microphone input. I then, edited the audio recording and made it mono so that I can hear the sound for both left and right channel. This is what you can hear in the video sample. Please check it out.

I recently purchased Behringer U-Phoria UMC22 audio interface. This is USB powered interface with 2 input channels and 2 output channels. It has separate gain controls for 2 inputs and 1 gain control for direct monitor such as headphone. It has LED indicators for power, signal and clipping. 48 Volts Phantom Power is also available when needed. This is commonly used with professional condenser microphones. Here is my unboxing video. I will post another video next time when I hook this up to my PC and guitar. I still do not have microphone to test with. I hope to get studio quality recordings from this device.
