Nice and very easy to use
YngveB, 29.01.2021
I use the UM2 for connecting to my iMac for recording and controlling both Guitar and Mic inputs.

It is basically just plug and play. In Logic Pro X you are presented with two Inputs (1 & 2), 1 goes for Mic/Line 1 and 2 for Instrument fx. Guitar). Both inputs gain can easily be adjusted by the two knobs on the UM2. Sound quality from inputs are really good. Using the UM2 as sound output on the iMac is quiet nice, as the iMac has no other output than headphones or Bluetooth, where BT has a delay, using the UM2 there basically isn't any delay. My speakers have analogue RCA input, which works well with the UM2. Output sound quality is good, which means that the UM2 has a good D/A converter build in. Monitoring is also nice, it can be used easily to monitor the inputs directly throug headphones. I'm using both acoustic Western Guitar and Electric Guitar with the UM2, and the result for clean sound is awesome.

Pros/Cons: Build quality is actually quiet good, though the knobs would have gotten a better "touch" if there were made en metal instead of plastic, but that is just a cosmetic feel. It is very easy to use and adjust. It's good it has signal LED's to show when it can register signal, and it also has a clip LED so you easy can adjust input gain to a normalized level.

I am new to using instruments through the computer, but this made it really easy to get started.

Beginner
ckevar, 28.09.2020
Bought it because I read it's good for beginners, and this is my first audio interface.
It's compatible with ubuntu (plug-&-play) no need to install any driver. I use it with Jack2 and an electric guitar, the sound is clear but there's a bit of white noise in the background (acceptable).

[EDIT]: I start using as default interface for listening music in my regular days because the sound is way better than the build-in laptop audio. You can hear all the details of the music

Good Starter Interface
D.J.S, 09.04.2020
The UM2 is a simple but effective interface that definitely does what you need to.

I had this coupled with an AT2020 and haven't had any issues with compatibility at all over the years. The only fault I could find was that if you raised your sound output to about 75% in the sound settings of your computer, you might find some static coming through your headphones/speakers. I tested this with my microphone unplugged so it's possible that Win10 might be argumentative at times.

Even with that, I can't fault it. It does what you need as a starter for any mic that needs phantom power and simple enough even for the newest of techies.

One of my best purchases
mavro, 18.01.2021
Took it with the idea to practice my bass through it. I was a little disappointed when I understood that when using the direct monitoring, only the left/right output is used. Later on I understood this is intentional so I found my way around it - Y-cable or using some virtual effects on the PC.

Since then this is my main tool to practice my guitar/bass.

The unit itself looks and feels really sturdy. My cat actually pushed it a couple of times from the desk but it still works :)
