I've been recording exclusively in home studio's(actually all in my apartments spare bedrooms) for the past 10 years plus, so I know a thing or two about setting up to record in less than ideal situations. The audio interface, to me, is a central part of that kind of set up where recording is getting more and more mobile. If having numerous single or dual channel interfaces has taught me anything, its that most of these out there will fit the bill for 90 percent of us recording in our own home. There is not a wildly huge margin of sound quality were talking about here at least when dealing with these "under $300" units, despite what the internet might have you believe. With that said, this little guy was a very pleasant surprise indeed. First off, the Midas preamps caught me off guard in that they were much cleaner and better sounding than other Behringer Mic Pres I've heard. For under $70, I got an interface that rivals the now-famous Scarlett 2i2 in terms of sound. Actually, the fact that this one has a pad button for use with high output guitar signals makes it preferable to my Scarlett in many situations. The build quality is very nice and feels durable, and it's all black and silver casing looks pretty sharp on my desk. It was very easy to set up and was a breeze to get going on my Windows 10 Pro 64 bit PC. Its one of the lowest latency devices I've used which is pretty important if you record lots of Vocals and Guitars. I have to say well done to Behringer on this one. At the current price, it simply can not be beat in terms of quality or feature set. Highly recommended.
To configure in Linux, I used these steps:
* plug in USB device
* boot up OS
* Start up QjackCtl setup, select the USB sound card device.
* start Jack
* start your DAW (for example Ardour)
Of course, in linux general system sound will still be routed to the system sound card. These are configured under the system Sound Preferences Input/Ouput settings. Or you can keep system sounds running through the native soundcard, and only use the USB soundcard for multitrack recording (jack).
The DAW software I use (Ardour) reads both channels as a single Left/Right stereo input.
One word of caution: if you plan on using the direct monitoring feature, you'd probably be better off to spend $10 more dollars and get the 204HD model instead of the 202HD. Behringer's models are a little confusing in that 202 and 204 are almost identical. The 204 model will give you control over a stereo/mono headhone signal, and balance knobs. Otherwise, with the 202, the two inputs are hard-panned to be left/right with direct monitoring. So if you only record one input, direct monitoring would be in one ear. For me, the latency on my system is low enough, I don't really need direct monitoring, and also I don't record in mono (one channel).

I think I got a ton of value here. It's really quite an amazing thing, even ignoring all the other interfaces it comes with, (which I appreciate the irony of). I am using it with a pair of ATH-m40x headphones. The audio is so accurate you can hear people breathing, turning pages, tapping their feet and so forth in some orchestral works. A dramatic improvement over the on-board sound, I find myself looking for excuses to put this thing on and listen to something ... anything.
Keep in mind this thing is all about accuracy, so it's not going to be offering to apply any fancy effects. In fact its job is the opposite; it exists to present whatever passes through it as accurately as it can, with as little change as possible.
I expect I'll use some of the other in/out-puts at some point, but this thing has already won me over with the remarkable transformation it has delivered in sound quality.
La recomiendo por encima del modelo "Behringer Umc22" (invirtiendo un poco más de dinero) por tener dos entradas de audio y línea, para poder grabar pistas en estéreo.
Cuenta con Phantom power, así no es necesario comprar el componente extra en caso que tu micrófono lo necesite.
Es pequeña y fácil de transportar, y da una buena calidad de audio, que aunque no es "perfecta", es bastante buena!
