Behringer updates USB drivers....finally

Mods feel free to move this to Hardware or Software if need be.
 
This is the first update they've done since late 2015. Anyone who uses the Uphoria series (UMC) of USB devices on Win 7 or higher, they have a driver update from version 3.29 to version 4.38. I use the UMC 1820 with very good results, but have not yet tested this new driver with my setup so use at your own risk. It says it will support sample rates of 192 with WASAPI on Windows systems. 
 
EDIT/Update: They added in lower buffer sizes. The lowest was 64 samples, now it goes down to 8 with a safe function to prevent dropouts. I've test it at 32 with SPLAT and Reaper and it;s solid for me.

    Thanks.  My 1820 is on standby right now, but I'll grab these for sure

    Interesting.  The history text file shows a steady stream of updates.

    Find your interface from the lists.
     
    Been testing all day so far. This is a MUCH better driver and IMHO puts the unit on par with the Focusrite. Your results may vary....I have a beefy system.

    Thanks, I recently purchased a UMC404 for mobile gigs, so I could leave the Audient at the studio. It's a better interface than I expected but wow...I was scratching my head, thinking this isn't going to work. You just saved my 404 from being a trot-line weight!
