Behringer UCA200

Behringer UCA200 guide, drivers & user's manual below


USB Audio

There is an input and an output on the box using RCA connections. The USB cable sends the captured audio signal (if you set this up right) back to your PC for recording. The U-Control UCA200 device has a USB Audio Codec support built into it that essentially makes it a sound card. The unit is powered through the USB cable when attached to your PC and it is capable of recording any audio signal from such sources as mixing boards, cd players, karaokee machine, etc... Whatever you plug into the input.

Need the drivers?

I have Gold plated Evolution II RCA cables connected from the Output of my Behringer Xenyx 2222FX mixing board leading to the Input on the UCA200, this is how any audio my mixer captures through it's many open channels will get recorded via my software to my hard drive. Spend the money on high quality cables to ensure the best signal transfer if you are recording professional level lyrics.

To start recording an audio signal via the UCA200 you must have it properly set up in the Windows XP "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties". The picture to the left shows that the USB Audio Codec is the default recording device and that my M-Audio Fast Track Pro still handles all Sound Playback.

The UCA200 does not come with drivers, as far as I am aware. I have already found the USB CODEC that runs this device and you may download the U-Control UCA200 drivers in a .RAR file above, click here to download them.

You may need to download RarZilla or another similar program to uncompress the file above if you don't already have one.

Configuration

You must also make sure that you have the proper device selected in the "Preferences" setting of whatever audio sequencing software you use, this guide is all based on Acid Pro 6 and once again the USB Audio CODEC is the default recording device.

You will be able to find and download the Behringer U-Control UCA200 user's manual from it's official source on the Behringer.com home page.

Another issue to be aware of is your latency settings, this must be properly calibrated to ensure your recordings are synchronized and everything is on the beat. A simple 1,2,3,4 (beat counting) out loud vocal recording test will help you determine and adjust it to your computer's ideal latency. Play it back and pay close attention to determine if everything is in sync.

Your mixer & recording

To record using the UCA200 with the Behringer Xenyx 2222FX you must make sure that the CD/TAPE TO MAIN button is in the up position or you will get no sound. This button is directly above the PHONES/CTRL ROOM knob.

The last thing you must take into account before you're prepared to record is that the track is armed, and the correct Input Channel is selected before you press the Record button.
