iSK UC200 - is it supported

Post by yanko » Mon Feb 12, 2018 4:03 pm

Hi there,
I have a nice XLR microphone that I used with my DAT recorder. I tried using it with Audacity on my Windows 7 laptop by plugging it into the microphone input with disastrous results - mostly because the built-in sound card and its preamp suck, not so much because of interfacing issues. Anyway, I'm looking for an external USB XLR interface that's not hugely expensive. I looked at Behringer UM2, but people were having problems with formats and drivers. I just found this thing called "iSK UC200" recording interface. Has anyone used it and would it be compatible with Audacity?
Thanks!

I have not used it, but It should work. Almost all of these little USB interfaces (including the Behringer) are "class compliant" and they use the regular Microsoft-supplied drivers so they'll work with any Windows audio application (just like any Windows printer works with any Windows word processor).

The Behringer stuff is obviously mass-manufactured at low cost (in China, I think) and you're probably not going to find their products in pro recording studios. But, you can get a lot for your money and lots of people are happily using Behringer for home recording. And when you sell millions of something you're going to have a few dissatisfied customers (and some defective products).
