The UCA202 allows you to connect instruments and other audio devices to your computer, effectively merging the analog and digital worlds. It accomplishes this by providing two analog mono Inputs and Outputs (for monitoring), USB connectivity and an additional S/PDIF optical output for direct analog-to-digital conversion. The stereo headphone output features a dedicated level control and lets you listen to both the input and output.
When used as a professional interface between a mixing console and your computer, myriad options become available. Some of these might include connecting the UCA202 RCA Outputs to the Tape Input jacks of your mixer, to powered monitors, or to your mixer. Connecting to the mixer input channels allows you to use your mixer's Aux Send feature to build an extremely versatile monitor mix for recording sessions.
