Exactly what you should expect for that price and maybe more
DiuGGi, 23.06.2019
I use this interface in the studio sometimes but the main usage is for live sets and gigs. If you are looking for an high end studio designed ADC/DAC that's not what you need (obviously), subtile crackle and noises are ordinary with the UMC1820. But if you are looking for an affordable and easy to move and versatile interface...here it is, this Behringer black brick will follow you everywhere and everywhen you need it, fits in a backpack, in a keyboard bag or in a flight standard hand luggage. Essential In/Out (8 mic-line-inst in/Main L-R + 8 line out), gain knob, pad and line/inst switch for each tracks, two separated phones out with dedicated knobs , MIDI In/Out, SPDIF/ADAT...in conclusion everything you need to play around. I traveled all around Europe with this interface and it never let me down and never made problems. The value of the UMC1820 depends on your particular needs, as everything.

Does everything it promises, but you may have driver problems AND heat
Valerio C, 08.09.2019
I'm actually quite satisfied with this product, the sound is pretty good (the pres are awesome), the in/out are what I needed, but there's two little flaws.
The first one is about the drivers not working properly on some devices/OSs, and even bringing to stupid problems like Youtube AND Reaper not playing simultaneously due to frequency mismatch (problems I didn't have with a small UR22). Plus, it actually heats up a bit.

UMC 1820
31.05.2016
This interface is usb class compliant and does not require any drivers on Mac. I have used it with a MacBook Air running protools and an iPad running Auria. It runs faultlessly on both systems. The mic amps are a mid range spec but perfectly usable and quiet. All other controls are logically laid out and obvious. The unit arrived with a two pin mains lead useless to me in the uk and the manual is very thin on detail.

Good

Don't use it with the latest drivers from Behringer. Driver ver 3.29 are better.
It's windows driver looks like from 1995 and routing is impossible without DAW.

In/Outs can routed only in Linux using Jack2.

Good sound and very useful features
gvozdedir, 30.11.2017
Got it for home studio use. While I don't necessarily need a lot of ins and outs, it is very convenient to set up all your instruments plugged in constantly, and have available outputs for reamp (for example). The setup with most inputs/outputs at the rear allows for a very neat setup with all the cables being behind and out of sight. Two separate headphone outs are very useful, as well as the two inputs on the front for "guests".
In summery, packed with useful features, easy to set up and use. Works well with ASIO4ALL, Sound quality is very good. I would highly recommend it for home recording studio over any 1,2 and 4 input interfaces of any price just for the shear convenience of use.

Great interface for the price!
cormac69, 22.04.2019
I use this interface for my home studio. I originally bought it due to the amount of inputs for the price, making recording a drum kit a breeze. The extra mic pres allow for a lot more creativity in the recording process, as I can mic up the room and such. In terms of its sound, it's certainly not the clearest but with audio processing it's possible to get a great mix from the tracks recorded on it. I've also used this for recording theatre performances, and found it great for this task.

all round a great piece of kit for the price, making recording accessible to those on a budget.

Great audio interface
15.02.2017
I use this audio interface in my home studio setup. It offers you 8 mic preamps which is amazing., preamps by Midas sounds great. Latency is acceptable but you need powerful PC. The only disadvantage in my opinion is that UMC1820 can't be routed in UMC Audio Control Panel, just in your DAW. In conclusion it's great interface for home studio when you have limited budget and you want lot of inputs. Best choice in this price.

UMC 1820 and the reason of the return
02.12.2016
The product is Behringer UMC1820 and the reason of the return is in the fact that the unit has shown itself to be unstable using the USB connection and would drop out after 1 to 20 min. and sometimes would not be recognised by the operating system. I have run the tests on 3 different computers ( win10, 8 and 7) using the drivers provided by the Behringer Music Group company and... no luck. For the 15 min. operation I've recorded a drum set with 8 mics and the sound was very good for the price. So, I guess that the problem might be in the particular unit that was sent to me and not with the UMC 1820 series 'cause I haven't seen that anyone else reported such an issue.
