Want to transfer your old cassette tapes to CD before the oxide falls off the tape? The fastest, easiest way to get analog audio into your computer is with the U-CONTROL UCA222 Audio Interface.

The fastest, easiest way to get analog audio into your computer. Click to enlarge.

S/PDIF optical output and headphone out with volume control.

Includes software such as XT Software's energyXT for recording right out of the box.

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. It gets its power from your computer's USB bus, so no external power supply or batteries are required. And the UCA222 requires no special setup or drivers--just plug it in to a free USB port and start recording.

Versatility
The UCA222 features two analog mono inputs for connecting any line-level device, such as a mixer or tape deck, and two analog mono outputs for connecting active speakers or studio monitors. On the digital side, the UCA222 provides USB connectivity and an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct analog-to-digital conversion. The stereo headphone output has a dedicated level control and allows you listen to either the input source or the computer output.

Plenty of Options
When used as a professional interface between a mixing console and your computer, myriad options become available. Some of these might include connecting the UCA222's RCA outputs to the TAPE INPUT jacks of your mixer or active monitors, or directly into the input channels of the mixer. Connecting to mixer input channels gives you access to equalization and allows you to use the AUX Send features of your mixer to build extremely versatile monitor mixes for your recording sessions.

Tons of Free Software
Because you'll want to take full advantage of the UCA222's podcasting and recording potential we've included a massive software package including Audacity, Podifier, Juice, Podnova and Golden Ear. You're ready to go live on your Mac or PC computer right out of the box! You also get more than 100 virtual instruments and over 50 effects plug-ins, turning your computer into a complete home-based or mobile recording studio from input to output.

When you're ready to take your recording projects to the next level, XT Software's energyXT is just the trick. This amazing DAW (digital audio workstation) makes it easy to manipulate your audio and MIDI files, turning song ideas into stunning CD or web-ready recordings. energyXT includes its own multi-FX processor, built-in synthesizers and a drum machine, both of which can be accessed directly via an external controller (such as our UMA25S or UMX25) or programmed in step-write mode.

Great Value
For a fraction of the cost of other USB audio interfaces, you can have state-of-the-art digital conversion, world-class recording and editing software, and hassle-free connectivity between your PC or Mac Computer and any piece of audio gear.

I wanted an external audio interface for recording music into and through my laptops, which have unacceptably noisy mic inputs. I went with the Behringer UCA-222 because it was dirt cheap. So far it's fine for my purposes, nothing fancy, but I didn't expect anything fancy. Here are a few observations that may help other buyers, things Behringer doesn't really clarify in their documentation and advertising, or otherwise might be relevant and helpful to know before buying.

1) I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how the UCA-222 differs, if at all, from the slightly cheaper UCA-202 (Behringer U Control UCA202 USB Audio Interface). I finally concluded that the only differences are the name (202 vs 222), the color (222 is sports car red), and the software included. The units are otherwise identical. This is useful to know, since I've read people on other forums wondering this too. Behringer seems to go to lengths not to say this in so many words. I have a theory why (just a theory) and it involves the other main difference, the software that comes with the 222. Now more on that:

2) The 202 comes with the free and open source Audacity, and with Kreatives' Kristal Audio Engine (also free)--(neither one is the best free choice out there). The 222, on the other hand, also comes with Energy XT2.5 ("Compact Behringer Edition") and another disk with "over 100 virtual instruments plus more than 50 effects plug-ins including VST host-, audio- and podcast-software for direct start-up." For me, the question became, is the 222 worth $6 more to get this software? I decided, what the heck. Some notes on this software:

EnergyXT2.

I own three of these units (one Red 222 and two Grey 202)and use them to output midi sounds from my laptops internal sound moduals to a pro PA system (mostly Mackie gear) for live performance and occasionally to add sounds to recordings in my 24 track home studio. This unit is quiet and very handy. The price is dead cheap. I have two other similar units (a Lexicon Alpha and the smaller Lexicon Omega boxes)that cost much more. Yes my Lexicon boxes provide a lot of different inputs and outputs and are very nice but if all you need is a very portable basic input/output sound card that is very quiet and easy to install (just plug it), you should buy this box.

Some of the reviews talk about it being "cheap" plastic. Yes it is plastic (so are many other more expensive units) but I have been throwing these boxes in with my other equipment and have yet to break one of them or have any problems. I will also admit that while I don't abuse my equipment on purpose, I am not that gentle either and have dropped these several times with no damage.

The software that comes with the 222 package is good, but in my case I really didn't need it. I have Sonor/Cakewalk software and Abobe Audition but I would like to take a moment and say something about the included Audacity. One reviewer wrote that it is a "very low,low.low" quality software. That couldn't be further from the truth. I have used this software for years in my studio and it is very high quality software. It can work in both 16 and 24 bit processing, and input and output almost every type of audio format (.wav, MP3, etc.). It also has a ton of very nice free downloads (compressors, EQ's, sonic enhancers etc.)from the Audacity web site. Audacity started life as a shareware but was purchased by Sound Forge who was in turn bought by Sony.

I was looking for a USB sound add-on for my laptop. I keep my iTunes library on an older Dell laptop by my bed so that I can listen to music or audio books in the evening. It has a Sigma Tel audio chip on board that generates noticeable hiss and generally dull sound. I'm not a musician or audio professional but I do appreciate clean, clear sound. I looked at this: Creative Sound Blaster Live! 24-Bit External Sound Card - but it costs over $200! This was more in my price range: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 sound card - but it had a few bad reviews.
.
Then I found the Behringer UCA-222. I know that Behringer sells to pro sound people and the price was right so ... I ordered one for just under $40.
.
Wow! I am very pleased. The sound comes out of absolute silence on my Shure SE210 ear buds. I had forgotten how good sound can be. Good vocal tracks sound almost live. It has a stereo headphone jack and a volume control on the box so adjusting sound level is very easy. It also has optical audio out. I carried the laptop over to my main stereo and played some iTunes into the optical input on my Yamaha receiver. Really nice sound. The only limitation is probably the MP3 format of the music.
.
It comes with an extensive sound editing software bundle that may be of interest to musicians but I don't need or use it.
.
This is STEREO only so if you are looking for 5.1 or 7.1 output for surround sound or games I do not think this is what you want.
.
If you are interested in upgrading the sound of an older laptop for stereo listening or audio editing I think you will be very pleased for the price. I am running Windows XP so I do not know how well it works with Windows 7 or 7-64.
