Hampshire, UK (January 23, 2018)—Audient has released its latest desktop audio interface, iD44.
The unit sports four Audient Class-A console mic pres offering 60 dB of gain; new converter technology; options for digital expansion; new software intended for helping manage large sessions; a potential I/O of 20 in/24 out and an all-metal build.
iD44’s mic pres are the same as those found in the company’s large-format recording consoles. ADAT inputs and outputs are provided to aid the addition of up to 16 extra channels of mic pres.
Channels 1 and 2 also feature two fully balanced insert points, allowing users to apply a compressor, reverb or EQ, for example, while recording, or get direct access to the analog digital converters for creative options such as print-backs, FX processing or integrating outboard analog line level sources.
Audient's upcoming Windows drivers update will reportedly provide performance enhancements, allowing for reduced buffer sizes and operation at lower latency. iD44 is expected to ship in the first quarter of 2018 and will retail for $699 MAP.
