The Behringer UMC22 went on sale from the price of 79.99 to 39.99 this week (it looks like across the board at most websites, they must be blowing these out?...).
I'm so happy with it that I reviewed it on Amazon today and thought I would post this deal since I've ran it through the gambit now and think it is a FANTASTIC Price for this Audio Interface. I know Amazon has the original price listed as 59.99, but before last week they were listed at 79.99 and still are at musicians friend/guitar center. Not sure why list is showing low. Just thought I would point that out.

For those that care, this is the review I gave on Amazon below:
"First things first. I was not a huge Behringer fan. In the past they have put out some faulty stuff, so I was weary about buying a Behringer product, but after looking and looking for a cheaper alternative after my MUCH much more expensive Focusrite bit the dust, I needed a quick cheap fix. I went on the lookout for another Audio Interface where I could play and record some guitar parts, and I came across some awesome Utube reviews for the UMC22.
Long story short, this little box packs a punch, ESPECIALLY for the sales price which is 40 bones right now.
It doesn't break up, is in an all metal casing, has three year warranty, has a clip feature, direct monitoring, is ultra quiet, has power out, and has MIDAS preamp, which is insane because Midas usually only comes with much more expensive audio equipment. It will also take two 1/4 inch jacks. I am actually blown away with what this little box can do, so much that I was planning on replacing my Focusrite with another, but now I have no need. It works just as good, and dare I say almost better.
Behringer also offers Tracktion (DAW Software) for recording with purchase. Most places don't state this and it is not in the box, but after reading reviews from others I found out. When you register the product with Behringer, they are supposed to send you a free Tracktion T6 redemption code.
This is where it became a little bit of a pain in the butt. It was like pulling teeth, but I emailed Behringer after I did not receive my code in 48 hours. Then they sent me a code, but it didn't work, and then they told me I had to email tracktion because Tracktion sent them a wrong code?
That said, I did email Tracktion with the bum code Behringer gave me and they did send me a new redemption code, so it did work..eventually.
Long story short. This is a hell of an Audio Interface for the price. If this thing was branded Focusrite on the box it would be two to three times the cost."
Thanks for looking!
