About this product


Product overview

• Works with any electric guitar or bass guitar
• 1/4-inch (6.35mm) in port facilitates the connection to your guitar, with a 1/4-inch lead required (not supplied)

What can I expect from this?
Everything you need to start recording your guitar on a PC or Mac computer is included with this Behringer guitar to USB adapter. It has a 1/4-inch jack input port for connecting your guitar or bass to this adapter, with a 1/4-inch mono jack cable needed to link the two (not included). The adapter works with PC or Mac computers and connects to them through its USB connection. A 1/4-inch stereo headphone out port also lets you play and listen to your musical creation without disturbing others. Using the built-in analogue-to-digital converter, your tune is converted at 16-bit and up to 48kHz, providing you with studio-quality digital audio.

What can I do with the included software?
There are three different programs supplied with this guitar to USB adapter, designed for you to record, edit and enhance your music. Audacity is an easy-to-use audio editor and record for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. Native Instruments’ ‘AC Box Guitar Combo’ provides you with various effects that you would experience with a 1960s British amp and includes a precision tuner, metronome and a variety of stomp boxes. Finally, Tracktion is a digital audio workstation (DAW) for composing, recording, editing, mixing and sharing your music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a truly remarkable piece of kit! It lets me practice in silence, to which the neighbours are very pleased. However, it’s the software that really “makes” this product. It lets you playback MP3s, change their tempo (good for nailing those quick riffs or tricky solos), change the pitch (saves you having to retune your guitar for dropped tunings) and even lets you record any music you think of on-the-spot. There are a choice of 3 amp rigs (sounds) to choose from as a trial with the software and after some time you need to choose which one to keep. There are many pre-defined effects, or you can tweak these yourself to get a sound you are happy with. To top things off, there is a built-in chromatic tuner. This product is worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good product with excellent support but check which driver set you use as there are many available for both Mac and Windows PCs. The first unit received was faulty but this was exchanged without fuss and the new unit appears to working fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from To be honest I am still struggling with the software, waiting to hear back from Behringer moderator note: it is worth noting that Maplin also offer technical support for items in addition to the manufacturer.

Do i need headphones to listen to the output or will it play from the computers speakers?
Asked by: lorry
For zero latency you need to use the headphone socket on the device (which you can plug speakers into). Through the software’s setting you can change to playback through your normal sound card, however, latency will occur and therefore as you play there will be a delay in the sound output.

Can this interface be used with software such as interactive guitar learning.
Asked by: Jason Birch
The use of this device with any 3rd party software not supplied with the unit cannot be guaranteed. The unit should appear to the system as an external sound card so should operate with most audio interface based software.
