Searching for 2 channel USB Audio Interfaces

Post by arpegadream »

What VERY AFFORDABLE USB Audio Interfaces are there that I can use in a Debian/Mint system? I have to give back the Behringer UMC 204HD to my brother in law, we need something cheap like it that we can get for me.

The 204HD is still available to purchase. Cheaper Behringer models are the UMC202HD and the UMC22. I don't know of any better value USB audio interface than what Behringer is putting out currently. In the value USB interface spectrum I've had a Focusrite Scarlett Solo and currently have a Behringer UMC404HD. I have no qualms what so ever recommending a Behringer UMC device.

If you're willing to buy used, reverb.com has some two-channel interfaces for less than 100 USD.

I'll second the recommendation to go used. There haven't been major advances in audio interfaces for several years, if you get a 4-5 year old interface you'll save a lot and not miss out on anything significant.

UMC22's can be had for 50-80 USD on reverb.com.

Make sure to shop around. These can be found for about $70 brand new with warranty, Long and McQuade sells the UMC22 for $73.99 CDN. That's about $60 USD. There are a bunch of scalpers selling these on amazon and ebay for almost double that so beware.
