Audient iD44 MKii Desktop USB Audio Interface

Desktop USB audio interface featuring audio loop-back and a dual headphone output combined with four Audient Console mic preamps, class-leading converters, ADAT expandability and balanced insert

MFR# iD44Mk2

Product Description

Audient's most powerful audio interface just got better. The Audient iD44 MKii Desktop USB Audio Interface sees improved audio performance, additional must-have features and a beautiful new smoke-grey finish. The addition of audio loop-back and a dual headphone output, combined with four Audient Console mic preamps, class-leading converters, ADAT expandability and balanced inserts – means iD44 delivers the audio performance of an Audient console straight to your desktop.

AUDIENT CONSOLE MIC PREAMPS

Every iD interface features the Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in the renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analogue warmth, iD44’s four Audient Console mic preamps will give you the professional sound you deserve.

The Audient mic pre is a high grade hybrid discrete and op amp design that delivers a clean, accurate and detailed translation of your source.

CLASS LEADING CONVERTERS

Offering an incredible 126 dB of dynamic range, iD44’s class leading converters have been designed to deliver the most honest and natural translation of your audio, helping you hear subtle detail, identify problematic issues and make better mix decisions. Experience remarkable clarity from the moment you press play.

Even better ADC performance - the MKII sees a massive 9 dB improvement on the ADC’s THD+N figure, meaning clean audio with less added noise and even less audible distortion.

EXPAND VIA ADAT

Easily configure your studio to tackle bigger sessions. Equipped with two optical input and output connectors, iD44 gives you plenty of options for expansion. Supporting both ADAT and SPDIF, boost your I/O by adding up to 16 channels of mic preamps to your setup.

BALANCED INSERTS

Integrate your favorite outboard FX prior to conversion and start creating signal chains that rival the very best. The insert returns also gives you direct access to the A/D converters providing the cleanest signal path possible, making it great for print-backs or integrating outboard line level sources.

  • Mix with hardware FX
  • Record external mic preamps
  • Bypass built-in mic preamps

JFET INSTRUMENT INPUTS

Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, iD44 features two harmonically rich JFET Instrument Inputs giving you the perfect sonic foundation for your guitars or basses before you hit your amp sims.

SPEAKER OUTPUTS

Connect and listen to your mixes through two sets of speakers with iD44’s four line outputs. Alternatively use the extra line outputs to send audio to an external headphone amp for distribution to your artists.

HEADPHONE OUTPUTS

Easily record and collaborate with others by utiliing iD44’s two individual stereo headphone amps, both providing more than enough power for your headphones to perform accurately.

Lost your headphone adapter or need a third set of headphones? iD44 now benefits from the addition of a dual headphone output, including both a ¼” jack and a mini-jack, on headphone output one, providing even more monitoring flexibility when you need it.

AUDIO LOOP-BACK

Now equipped with Audio Loop-back, iD44 can quickly transform into a multi-purpose powerhouse. Giving you the ability to capture playback from multiple applications on your computer at the same time as your microphones, Audio Loop-back lets you create a custom audio feed ready to send to your streaming software. Ideal for content creators, podcasters and streamers.

Audio loopback is becoming an increasingly in-demand feature due to the prevalent rise of podcasting, Youtube/content creators and gaming streamers.
