    Behringer USB interface.

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi, I am running sony Vegas 7.0 or 8.0 on a gateway Pentium 4 3.0, 1 gig ram. soundblaster sound card. I normally track on a Tascam 2488 and export/import 24 bit .wav files to Sony on my computer for mix down. Have gotten some pretty good results but things have come along way in 10 years so I'm thinking about buying a Behringer U-Phoria UMC404HD USB interface, Just wondering if it is as easy as plugging it into a USB port and will Vegas recognize it automatically so I can assign and arm the tracks for record and playback. Also would my monitors them get plugged into the Behringer or would they still run off of the computer soundcard. I may upgrade my computer someday but frankly this was a high end P4 at the time and I have mixed up to 48 tracks with tons of pluggins without running out of horsepower. Just wondering if it can handle the interface without latency issues. Could live with 24 bit 44.1K if I need to. Thanks,

    A lot will have to do with interface Drivers for your Windows 95 system : ) Usually, your DAW depends on what Windows recognizes as devices - not Vegas. Computer latency is what one can tolerate and you might be spoilt with the Tascam ?

    I forgot to mention I'm running Windows XP. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    Just make sure the MFG supports your OS. Support for XP is fading fast. I took it upon myself to get a Refurb core 2 quad with Win7 Pro for $150 the december before last - to run one new vst, but everything is still xp over here.

    How does you P4 work with video? That's gotta be a big load for it. I had a P4 based computer many years ago and never had a problem recording with 24 tracks or more. Upgraded when I started doing video.

    The behringer unit is not exactly plug n play, but close. Be sure to install the ASIO driver.

    Yes, you will want to connect your monitors to the interface and not you computer soundcard.

    Some DAWs are actually picky with regards to interfaces they will function with (I have personally experienced this with Cakewalk Sonar). Not sure what Vegas's requirements are.

    As the Behrs are a new line, I doubt they have any drivers for XP, so will WIn7/8 (probably the oldest they have) work with it? that's the question.

    From The Behringer site..

    U-Phoria UMC404HD USB interface Streams 4 inputs / 4 outputs plus 1x MIDI I/O with ultra-low latency to your computer, supporting Mac* OS X* and Windows XP* or higher.

    Have heard 99.9% good stuff about the u-phoria line of interfaces.....as soon as I get my room cleared out and ready I'm going to buy the UMC 1820 to replace my Line 6 UX8.

    At a $100 for the 404 you can pick up a core i5 Laptop with win 10 that will smoke your P4 for Under $250 from Best Buy ( when they are on sale ) and you will be up to date and able to embrace todays technology..If money is tight I get it but about a $400 investment will relieve you of a lot of headaches that come with trying to hang onto a 10 year old system..Glad I bit the bullet and moved to win 10 from Vista a few months ago...

    Well, what is the latency ? They've got input monitoring, anyway

    As with any interface, results will vary depending on the system and system hardware...they advertise Ultra-low latency which leaves a lot to be determined...

    The reviews are very very positive overall on just about any site you can buy these....on KVR where it's just users here's a thread I found that lends to that positive perspective of just how well these VERY inexpensive interfaces perform...

    A lot happy customers at sweetwater
