As I understand it this sound card takes the input and has that "hard wired" to the output. Normally for vinyl control or CD control you have a timecode CD or record that the software (Mixxx, Serato, xwax) reads so as you change the playback of the timecode record or CD it changes the playback of the audio file (MP3, wav) the playback of the audio file goes out the output of this sound card and since the input is hard wired to the output what you end up with is the audio of the audio file you want *plus* the audio of the timecode of the control record/CD which you most definitely do not want to hear.

So yes, you would have to do this with two technic 1200s and an external mixer. and btw this soundcard only has one input and one output so you will need two of these Behringer UFO202s

Thanks for the info ;)
This sounds amazing for just 60 of your local currency (dollars or euro). I'll try it!!!
But i got two questions..
1. Is it still working properly??
2. Define "low output". Could someone use one in a club environment or it's just for home use? How does it stack up against the rane sl1 for example??? (i'm asking cause club systems are usually set for cdj's levels, and with the exception of traktor soundcards and sl3, the old sl1 usualy requires quite some gain from the mixer, which kind of distorts the sounds some times).

Consumer audio equipment has a nominal line output level of -10dBV (0.316 Vrms), and the UFO is consumer-oriented. Professional audio equipment has a nominal line output level of +4dBu (~1.228 Vrms) and club systems are likely calibrated for professional equipment. Nearly all RCA jacks are -10dBV nominal, even on pro equipment. You would need to use XLR or 1/4" jacks to get a +4dBu output. However, you can still drive pro equipment with a consumer-level signal, it will just sound quieter. (Don't go the other way though or you will clip the signal at best or destroy things at worst.) Some pro equipment has output level selector switches so as to match what you're connecting to.

Also, in the ASIO4ALL panel, it says my soundcard is 'Beyond Logic'. Guessing that I cut something that I shouldn't have.

EDIT: The problem was that the UFO was set to phono instead of line (my turntable has a built in pre-amp)

Is there a fix like this but for the headphone jack?

I don't want to hear my input source at all, just what the computer outputs :)

The fix above does exactly what you want, it disconnects the input from all outputs : neither the RCA nor the jack output reproduce the sound from the input. (At least that's what happened to me)

Hola, tengo una interfaz UFO 202 con este problema: Un canal de entrada no emite salida y el otro emite audio por las dos salidas simultáneamente. Alguien dispondrá del diagrama circuital?
I need the UFO 202's schematic diagram, thanks in advance, best regards and congratulations for this job.

OK, I'm confused, there's a UCA202 and a UFO202? I thought there was only one kind of silver one (and what are the differences)? And what's the significance of this mod exactly? Looking to start another set-up (vinyl control, 2 external soundcards - Behringer, cause they're the cheapest).
