5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, October 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BEHRINGER U-PHONO UFO202 (Electronics)
I ordered this product to permit me to transfer records and tapes to Cd's. The unit works great and I highly recommend that the buyer consider getting the version with the pre-amplifier as it will come in very handy if you are recording off of a record player with a magnetic cartridge (low signal output). I recommend installing the Audacity free software as the package that comes with it is an evaluation package and has no ability to save any recording, not to mention the complexity is overwhelming at times. The Audacity software is simple and straight forward but lacks a manual which would be helpful. For example, the Audacity software has digital signal processing capability but that section is only engaged by selecting a specific portion of the recorded track which is not immediately obvious to the user. The Audacity software also can only save .wav files and not MP3s. To get MP3 format a separate piece of software is required. The saved .wav file can also be manipulated using 3rd party software such as that sold by DAK. This DAK software can perform more sophisticated manipulation than the Audacity software but at a small price (approximately $30 to $40).

The unit does a outstanding job of doing a direct record function and the freeware allows some enhancement of the recorded material but requires some amount of experimentation. Fortunately the software does have an UNDO function which allows for multiple levels of UNDOs to be realized.

Go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ to get the latest version of audacity and dwnload a manual. Also, audacity has a link in it to get a copy of LAME mp3 encoder. It's free and the defacto standard in mp3 encoders.
