"The UCG102 works excellant for me with 3ms latency!!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
After researching the more expensive interfaces I decided to try a cheapie first as it is transfering bits n bytes NOT real audio. The UCG102 works excellant for me. I am only using it to play/not record a commercial virtual amp pkg. and am getting a 3ms latency with no distortion!! I use a separate hard disk recorder for recording. This is an older dedicated music XP PC, 2.4GHz with only 1 gb of ram!! You have to use the Behringer ASIO driver with a dedicated usb port or the latency is pretty bad,around 10ms with ASIO4All.
I didn't even try the included software as I don't need them, but have read they aren't anything to write home about.
Ease of Use:
Here's where it's drops a few points. The manual is useless. The driver took a while to get installed correct, but once you get it, it rocks!! Every software pkg. I tried found it immediately and worked flawlessly!!
What can I say as it's plastic, but in a home studio it should last quite a while.
They answer their email within a day or so and if you call them they are very good about helping!! And best of all they are in the USA and speak the same English I do!!! ;-)
This is worth every bit of the selling price!!!
The Wow Factor:
It's got a sexy blue lite and the basic features that's necessary to get the job done! Who needs all the bells n' whistles that's what the PC software is for.
I would replace it in a heartbeat!
