Audient iD14 MKII USB3 – USB-C Audio Interface
“If you are in the market for first audio interface and you should look no further than the Audient iD range of interfaces. They sound great and easy to use and perform brilliantly every time. However, I’m going to warn you now, you will be spoilt because unless you spend a significant amount more cash on a super high-end unit for your second interface you are not going to get better audio quality. That’s the Audient trick, or in sales speak the Key Selling Point (KSP). Their entry-level units sound every bit as good as their high end recording consoles. However, I don’t fancy the idea of trying to get a 24 or 48 channel console in my rucksack” – Pro Tools Expert
“Excellent-sounding preamps, impressive digital converters, robust build quality… A classy interface featuring all the quality you’d expect from Audient at a very affordable price.” – MusicTech
“..a high-quality and compact audio interface with excellent build quality and sound and a surprisingly flexible software control panel.. For the quality of the components and the results, the price is definitely reasonable.. If you want your recordings to sound as good as they can but don’t want to spend a fortune getting there…” – Hollin Jones, Ask.Audio
“Audient have judged the feature set of the iD14 very nicely… The preamps and headphone amp sound good to my ears, and the control panel software is clear and user-friendly… The iD14 makes no compromises on sound quality. – Sound On Sound
