[Amazon.ca] EXPIRED: Behringer UMC404HD audio interface $121.04, currently OOS

Amazon.ca has the 4x4 Behringer UMC404HD audio interface on sale for $121.04, regularly $204, which is the cheapest they've ever sold it. The only drawback is that it is out of stock (I don't know of any retailer in Canada that hasn't sold out of it since the pandemic started) so they might not get it in stock for a few weeks.

This Behringer audio interface is fairly good value and reasonable quality. There are better ones out there but they will cost quite a bit more.

Good post, this is definitely a good deal for small time streamer, personal recording studio set up, etc. Or even just a spare for a serious setup. Can't really go wrong with this price!

Yea, hard to go wrong at that price, even if it is a Behringer unit.

Pretty good price for an audio interface. I'm still using the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 but having 4 inputs on this Behringer (rather than 2) is a nice bonus.

Could this be used in a live band setup, or is it just for recording? Say I had some PA speakers, a mic, and a couple guitar amps. Would it be feasible to hook it all up with this and make it sound okay, or do I need a mixing board? Would I have to use my laptop no matter what? Sorry if these are dumb questions! Idk jack all about this stuff yet.

Gonna place an order regardless, but I'm interested to know.

This is meant for recording to a computer as the "sound card" that has 4 channels (2 x stereo pair) basically. Unless you use more then 2 mic, generally speaking you don't need this.

You can sorta use it to output to monitor too and use it as a digital mixer. But there really isn't much benefit using an interface for that.

Can this be used in a karaoke setup or a mixer is better for that?

I consider this old and underpowered and probably discontinued for those reasons. I would not recommend it unless you wanted to start a band with your kids or something
krsmas wrote: Could this be used in a live band setup
Yes, but one reason it wouldn't be is because it doesn't have all the knobs of a purpose-built mixer

I have this unit; bought it a few years ago for $144 in Jan 2018.

Good for home studio. Quality is middle of the road. Volume cuts out now and again if the signal isn't strong enough. For an interface with 4 pre-amps and numerous outputs you can't beat the value.

Yes, you would need to use your laptop and thus get way too much latency for live playing. This would be a better fit

Whats the difference vs the 8 input mixer or the 12 input mixer?
I still want to get one of these mixer for diy karaokee and mesing around on my PC. But when i did my research the consesunsus was it is better to get a higher quality one, like Mackie, since the lower quality ones had a lot of noise, especially at higher levels.
This bad boy is on my whish list although I never saw it reduced and actually it has increased in price by $20.

I paid $129 in 2017, so it's definitely been around this price before

That said I use it every day and I really like it. I podcast with it weekly and use it as an audio interface for work calls (I worked remote before this covid stuff)

The built in mic pres are really nice and lots of cable routing options. Totally solid buy at this price.

If you want to hear it in action and compressed down to 80mbps mono, you can listen to an episode or two of Too Scary at tooscary.ca/iTunes/etc

The difference is the total amount of input channels which consequently translates to more mics inputs, or potentially high z for DI.

It's more important to think of how many mics you need if you're looking for karaoke. There are 8 channel mixers with 4 mic preamps for example. Better brands like mackie and allen & heath will come with better preamps and potentially lower noise floor and in general tolerate more abuse. Unless you are working with nice mics in a treated room going through higher quality pa speakers you won't notice much of a difference :) most bands could potentially use a behringer mixer in a pinch and still do a decent concert !

Any other karaoke mixer recommendations?
Looking for at least 2 mics with effects, echo etc.

Thanks.

It looks like the deal is now over. Not surprising since very low prices usually only last a few hours on Amazon.

Bought in Jan '18 for $129+tax. I've used it for live gigs to route various MIDI instruments / tracks thru to the main FoH board; worked great, no latency issues, rock solid. I've also used for recording jam sessions, scratch stuff to keep track of ideas, etc, but I'd say it also has good enough sound for simple demos.
