Frankfurt, Germany (April 12, 2013)—Audient has launched a new recording interface, iD22, at this year's Musikmesse. The unit features 2-in, 6-out + ADAT i/o with 24-bit/96kHz AD/DA converters, and monitor controller functionality in a desktop package.
"iD22 brings together many of the things that people love about Audient into one inexpensive unit. Everyone needs mic pres, conversion and monitoring and nearly everyone is connecting to a computer", says Audient’s sales and marketing director, Luke Baldry. "The Class A mic pres used are exactly what you’ll find in our stand-alone units and consoles and the best you’ll find in any interface. What’s great is this interface has a similar price tag to a pair of decent mic pres, while offering an awful lot more."
In addition to the preamps, iD22 offers two high dynamic range AD converters; 6 high dynamic range DA converters; main stereo output for listening with fully balanced outputs; alt stereo output for alternative loudspeakers and cue mixes; headphone amplifier with independent DA converter; an optical I/O - 8 ch. ADAT or 2 ch. S/PDIF operation; and three programmable function keys (F1-F3) to facilitate control over talkback, loudspeaker switching, sum to mono, polarity reverse and cue solo listen.
