      Hi @Moshebear ,


       


      Welcome to the community.  When you say "hear music" I assume you mean something being played from the iMac itself?  I'd recommend using PB3/4 (USB3/4 OUT) for this so you leave PB1/2 for use with the inputs. 


       


      Take a look at this diagram which will help you understand how PB3/4 is routed in the interface: https://github.com/mcnster/umc-404hd-signal-path/blob/master/umc404hd.pdf


       


      The reason I recommend PB3/4 is because it only goes to the direct outputs and the headphone jack and not to the Main LR. 


       


      On the iMac, launch Applications->Utilities->Audio MIDI Setup. Under "Audio Devices", select the 404HD and click on Configure Speakers.  Select USB 3 for Left and USB 4 for Right.   On the 404HD depress the Mon A/B button to select "B", adjust the headphones volume,  and you should hear whatever is playing from the iMac.  


       


      Let me know if you have any questions. 


       


      Ken

    Hello guys,

    I bought an interface from Behringer U-PHORIA UM2.

    The drives have been installed and the card recognized by the computer.

    The output signal is ok, but the input sound pickup is too low.

    I've already increased the gain by 100%, but it's still very low.

    If you can help me, I'll be grateful.

    Does the UMC404HD provide 1.5V feed for iphone or Android-type microphones.  I.e. is the 1.5V voltage to power the FET in the electret microphone provided on the 3.5mm jack socket?  

    Does it support four-pole 3.5mm headset-type jacks?

      The UMC404 doesn't have any 3.5mm sockets.  The haedphone jack, if that is what you are referring to, is a standard 1/4" stereo headphone jack. Microphones are only accepted on the 4 x XLR sockets which can provide 48V phantom powering for condenser mics.

    Hi!

    I recently purchased a Xenyx 302 USB, and to my disappointment, this audio interface does not work in the Mac Sierra. Is there way to make it work? Did I just throw my money in the trash? Help me please!

    Hi All, 

    I am a worship leader and I use Ableton Live for live multitrack sets every week. I was using a windows based pc for a while but I have switched to a mac (old pc kicked the bucket). I now have a problem that I can not fix. I am getting a bleed between channels. I can hear the click and the cues faintly in the house no matter what I do. Here is what I know.

    Its not my computer (Tried my buddies brand new mac that he uses for the same setup at another church, his did the same thing)

    It's not the cables (switched between several and settled on brand new shielded xlrs)

    It's not at the board (Even if I completely disconnect the click track send (xlr from the interface) the channel is still bleeding the same way. So no physical click/cue output and still getting click/que faintly) 

    It's not necessarily the interface (I hooked up a scarlett that did the same thing, just much more faintly)

    I have ran tracks for years and this is the first time that I have had this particular problem and it has me stumped. I could probably make the scarlett interface work because it has a downloadable "Scarlett MixControl" that allows you to specify settings for the interfaces interaction with mac. From what I have seen, there is nothing like this for the UMC404HD because it comes "plug and play" ready for a mac with default CoreAudio drivers. 

    Please let me know if you know of any software that I am missing that would allow me to control the interface a little better on the computer side or of anything that I might be missing. This past Sunday was an acoustic set at the last minute and it looking this same for next sunday if I don't get this resolved ASAP!

    Thanks and I look forward to the replies!!!

    Hopefully someone can answer this. I want to send a Stereo source from my Xr18 to a Stereo track in Reaper. I haven't been successful. Can anyone tell me how to make this happen?

    I do have the xr18 driver installed. I've been recording with this set up for almost 2 years. I can record mono tracks easily, done it thousands of times. Never tried to record a Stereo source. I run my Mic into a preamp to Reaper(usually channel 7). 
    So now I've linked 7&8 on the xr18 and send it to a Stereo pair in Reaper. But only one side records.

    Thanks,
    Don.....

      Sending a stereo pair from XR18 to Reaper should be no different than sending 2 mono signals. What USB channels do you have channels 7 and 8 assigned to (on the In/Out, USB Sends)?


      In Reaper, you would setup a track and select a stereo pair for the input.

      Thank you Paul.  I got it.  It was simple.   I guess I was making it too complicated.  Can you answer this for me?  I posted the same question in the Reaper and this was one of the replies.


      "XR 18's usb only provides 8"


      Is that a true statement?


      Thanks again for your help,

      No it is not Don. I can record up to 18 channels using my XR18 (or MR18) using Reaper. I've produced 2 CD's for a Catholic group using these consoles.

      Thanks again Paul.  I've recorded maybe 6 to 10 channels at once but never tried 18 at once.  I wanted to reply to that comment but I wanted to make sure I had the right information.

    On the XR18 I would like to utilise all inputs 1-18 aswell as have my USB connected computer output too, but I can't find a way of doing this without losing an input channel and I'm not sure it is even possible?

    My PC is connected using USB to the XR18. Inside In/Out > USB Returns, I route USB 1/2 to the Aux L/R stereo channel, since USB 1/2 I use as my default main output in Windows.

    Inside the Aux input channel (17/18) "Channel" settings, I can either turn on USB for computer playback or turn it off for 17/18 line input, but it seems I cannot have both, is this correct?

    Ideally I would like my PC audio to go straight to the main outputs without sacrificing a channel if possible, maybe I'm missing something obvious or is it a limitaiton?

      Hi Mark, welcome to the community.


      As you have discovered, the channel 17/18 input can be either the analogue Aux in or a USB return pair - but not both at the same time. The limit is 18 channels. You can route a USB Return pair directly to Main, Aux or Monitor outputs if that would help?

      Thanks Rex.


      When you say route a USB return pair directly to Main Out, is that in In/Out > Main Out? This would seems to do a straight through from USB 1/2 to main out but turns off the rest of the mixer?

      @RaveyStabs 


      Yes that's correct but if you use Aux outputs (In/Out -> Aux Out), the main outputs would not be affected. The idea only helps if you can mix the extra two channels with the main outputs downstream - like at your monitors. Otherwise, you need a bigger mixer...

      Ah, route it to a bus out then mix with main out afterwards you mean? Unfortunately I have all 6 bus outputs on other duties, so looking into a small submixer

      @RaveyStabs 


      So you are using all 18 inputs, all 8 outputs and you need two more inputs... You could route USB 17/18 to the Monitor bus and use the Phones output for downstream mixing with Main LR but I think you have reached the limit of what the XR18 can handle. I can recommend the X32 Rack. The extra flexibility of the X32 ecosystem solves many problems.

    I’ve read other posts/web sites about this but can not find an actual solution.

    I am an amature hobbyist and I am using XAir XR18 in my home to control our sessions. I also want to record the sessions so I do USB to my macbook pro and Garageband.

    We have the mix sounding ok w/ the left/right XLR outputs to powered speakers and some powered monitors via the aux busses.

    My mac’s audio input and garageband’s audio inputs connect to XAir XR18 ok via USB.

    The 1/4" instruments (hi-z (1 and 2) or preamped) come through well enough, still too weak to really use though.

    All the microphones (XLR) are barely audible.

    In garageband:

    • I see the meter move for any track/input I am using (XLR mics are about half what the 1/4" ones are)
      • for grins I tried w/ or w/out phantom power on the track w/ no difference
    • When I record a given track its display is 99.9% a flat line w/ the occasional small blip
    • When I play back the recording:
      • 1/4" stuff is audible but not enough to be usable
      • Mics/XLR is barely audible
    • Each track’s “Record Level” is all the way down and the slider is disabled.
    • upping a track’s output volume and gain helps a little w/ the record level but that also makes it more likely we'll max out and clip/sound bad.

    So, assuming default settings for everything except individual track sliders, and with all of that:

    How do we get everything configured so that the output to the USB is stronger w/out maxing other levels out? 

    Thanks!

      Hi Dan, welcome to the community.


      A low recording level means that the pre-amp gains are too low. The mix can sound OK if channel faders and/or monitor speaker gains are raised to compensate.


      The way to fix this is to set a good gain structure throughout the sound system. This starts with setting pre-amp gains so that the input meters peak at about -12dBFS (or slightly below). Set channel faders, initially, about -5dB to 0dB. Set the Main LR fader to 0dB and adjust monitor speaker gains for a good level. From this point you can adjust individual channel faders to get the best mix. Follow the same process with any monitor mixes.

      Hi,


      I have X18 and want to record my concerts thru USB connected to my Windows PC (Windows 10) for recording/ streaming live into Faceboook/Zoom etc. The problem is USB feed volume level. Is there any independent control in X18 that allows one to increase/decrease the volume of mix going thru USB without changing LR fader as higher the Fader on LR, the speakers start blasting. I have mappped my USB1 & 2 to LR respectivly and chosen the tap as 'Pre fader' in 'USB Send'.

      Turn the input sensitivity on your speaker amps down and run the signals in the console hotter.

      Thanks for your suggestion. It is not so easy to change Speaker amps volume as they are at a good height and also because I dont stream and record every performance, however your suggestion is good.


      As Behringer has not provided any control for volume for USB send, the better solution in my mind is:


      in USB Send in 'I/O menu', map the channnels say 1 & 2 to LR and then chhose 'Pre-Fader' as their configuration.


      Now, whenever USB recording is needed - you can increase the fader of all inputs to desired level and bring down LR fader to a level where:


      a. people listening from speakers find it confortable, and


      b. at the same time the input singnal to 'USB Send' is at a higher DB than before.


      I have never tried 'Grouping', maybe I can group my input channels (track, microphones etc.) to a group so that any increase/decrease applies to entire group instead of changing fader for each channel individually.

    Hi, I can't get my behringer uphoria UMC404hd to connect to my computer. It's an hp computer made around 2009. I've tried two different cables with no luck. Can I send it in to get it checked out?

      Hi Blake @blaked2,


       


      Welcome to the forum. What OS are you running on that 2009 computer? Have you installed the appropriate UMC drivers?

      I have windows 10 64bit. I installed the driver 4.59 as well as the ASIO4All driver. I tried using Asio4all but there's no signal from the mic I plugged in. There's an option for the Asio UMC driver but when I choose it gives me the message, "Error initializing Asio driver". 


      I've heard through Amazon reviews that many people have connectivity issues as well as sound playback issues with this particular interface. I purchaed in one year and 3 months ago so seemingly the warranty wouldn't cover replacing it if the issue is a hardware one with the device itself.

      Hi Blake @blaked2,


      ASIO4All tends to block the 4.59 ASIO driver. Uninstall ASIO4ALL and the 4.59 should work. We've had a few others that did the same thing. Also in Windows 10, make sure the microphone is not turned off in the privacy section (Win10 has a nasty habit of turning this off, which also affects the ASIO drivers).

      I uninstalled asio4all and still can't see my instrument's info on the track. Also, when I select asio 4.59 in Reaper's device section the input and output options are blank. The error initializing driver message is still there. Are you talking about the "privacy" section on the computer or the program?

      On the computer. I use Win7 and are avoiding Win10 as long as I can. But there have been reports of this privacy setting (microphone) in Win10 that blocks the ASIO drivers.
