Behringer Uphoria UM2 Review

Until Scotland gains its independence, Patrick from TheGarageBandGuide is beholden to some pretty slippery slander laws in the UK. He does a fine job of dancing around them in this video! I'm not even going to bother putting in my own Amazon link for this. The noise floor on it is simultaneously laughable and unusable.

Behringer Uphoria UM2 Review

For absolute beginners I can see the price point of the Behringer Uphoria UM2 being incredibly attractive. You simply will not find a cheaper 2 input Audio interface on the market today.

So my main questions going into this are can something THIS cheap give you great sounding and usable audio? And what trade offs have Behringer had to have made in terms of features to keep the price so low?

If you really really really REALLY want to buy one, get it here: https://amzn.to/35yR78t

On a popular utopian synthesizer forum, the comments sections often explode around the topic of a ubiquitous manufacturer of low-cost, often poorly-made, blatantly-unoriginal products. It is impressive how polarizing this brand can be. Sometimes those comments escalate even when that company is not involved in the original post.

Of course, the cork-sniffer debacle of last year has cemented this shitty company's reputation as a nasty and assholish bunch. I personally hope they never recover.

The sad thing is, that there is a place in the market for cheaper products. And they have the resources to design their own products (BCR2000, e.g.). They could aspire to be a better company.

As it is, they often fall way short. In the cheap instrument industry, we have a nickname for such products:

"___ -shaped object." as in, "Synthesizer-shaped object." or "Interface-shaped object."

I.e., you can recognize what it is by how it looks, but not how it functions.

You are one of the lucky ones. Or you are smarter than us.

The BCR is an excellent example. That was a great product. It wasn't without its faults, but when it was working it filled an important niche for a lot of people.
“Until Scotland gains its independence...”
Haha, Behringer will become a much respectable brand before that ever happens.
