Behringer UM2 + UMC22 working on Win10
#1
I just managed to get Behringer UM2 and UMC22 audio interfaces working with Jamkazam on Windows10 on Lenovo T520 (at least in a solo session, together with jamtracks).

Those interfaces do not come with a specific ASIO driver, but simply rely on the generic Asio4All (asio4all.org). On a Windows machine, this driver has to be installed. It is said not to be compatible with any proprietary Asio drivers.

The key to me is this post regarding Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd interfaces: https://forum.jamkazam.com/showthread.php?tid=1294

It advises to set the Audio Frame Size to a low value in JK via Manage -> AudioSettings -> Audio Booster).
In the case of my Behringers, 2 ms worked best for me (when hovering on the JK session status, JK displays 1 ms, don't understand why).

Another very sensitive parameter is Hardware Buffer (Manage -> AudioSettings -> Open Asio Panel): Activate, and set the Buffer Offset to as low a value as possible (if too low, you get jitter/noise). For me 5 ms.

ASIO BufferSize 88 Samples.

Checkboxes for resampling and WDM Driver set off.

Don't forget to resync everytime you change an adjustment.

As a result, I got latencies from 10 to 13 ms (depending on who knows what).

A problem still left is crackling when playing (electric guitar, in my case). From what I've read that probably is a problem of the asio4all driver, which is said to be sensitive to low computing capacities, concurrent processes, whatever. Maybe I should try it on a newer/faster machine with less other processes running.

I hope that helps :-)

AN older JK video doesn't recommend the ASIO4ALL drivers as it says that latency will build up over time. A friend of mine has the UM-2 and is running at 7.9msec equipment latency. I've asked him if he has the link to the driver he is using. In the meantime, here's a link to a youtube video I found that has a link to the proper (I think) Behringer driver...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3QHbhtknH8

I just bought a UMC22 and had the same problems as everyone else.   As per help here I ditched asio4all and downloaded the driver referenced in this youTube video:

Apart from the installer looking like something from the 90s it got the UMC22 up and working 'all green'.   

Thanks everyone and good jamming
