Musicalmistress did that get your audio interface working?

If so, now click on the little downward arrow next to the Arm button on a Audio Track and select the interface input that your guitar is plugged into from the dropdown menu, then arm the audio track and start recording.

So this is what I got when I opened the mixer... I selected 'USB Audio CODEC' and then plugged in my guitar and followed the steps you mentioned, but... still nothing. It wasn't picking up any sound from the guitar. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

Arm an audio track (not a virtual instrument track), select your input via the drop-down next to the tracks arm button and re-check.

Edit: now I see the warning at the bottom, so not sure.
Stay in tune, Mark

Hi,

Is the UMC22 your only USB audio device? What else do you have plugged into USB ports on your computer?

Yeah I did that, pressed record and started playing but it didn't pick up any sound... I've played around with different inputs but nothing seems to be working x-(

Yes, it's the only thing I have plugged in.

Hi,

1. Right-click on the small volume control icon in your Windows task bar and select Open Sound Settings.

2. Next, click on Sound Control Panel (in the upper right of that screen).

3. Select the Recording tab.

4. Play some music through the UMC22 and see if the level indicator moves.

This will tell you if any audio is coming into Windows from that recording device.

Hello again,

Actually, check this first: go into your Windows Privacy settings and make sure it's set it to allow apps to use the microphone:

Also on your interface I “think” your guitar should be plugged into the instrument Input (#2), so you should select the Right Channel (Input 2) instead of the Left (Input 1) for your interface input.

ASIO4ALL is a huge pain in the butt; I don't know why Behringer didn't bother coding a separate driver. I don't remember what all you need to do within ASIO4ALL but I do know there's a bit of fiddling required to get it up and running.

Unfortunately, with some Behringer budget products, they did not invest in a bespoke driver but decided to use the universal ASIO4ALL. The UMC202HD and up have their own drivers.

I also have the same interface and was unable to get it going. Ended up putting it aside ''for a rainy day'' and buying the larger 4 input model which worked straight away. I will get back to the smaller unit when I can and advise.

Hi,

I suggested that you check that apps had permission to use the microphone. Did you do that?

I also suggested how you could check and see if sound is coming into your computer. Did you do that? If so, do you see the level indicator moving when you look at your Windows recording device in the Sound Control Panel?
