Audient iD44 MkII
Available on backorder
“The combination of console-grade preamps, insert points, and well-executed converters gives results that would challenge hardware that sits a lot further up the price scale, and is sure to impress even the most discerning of users.” – MusicTech
“You’ll be left with no doubt in your mind about what iD44 MKII is capable of, whether it’s functionality, or raw audio performance.” – Julian Krause
“In use, the iD44 sounds wonderful and offers quality comparable with much more expensive interfaces. While the software helps configure settings seamlessly, the upper panel design means that for recordings of up to four channels, you can comfortably run a session directly from the interface without clutter.” – Jono Buchanan, Future Music
“The iD44 is designed to be the centrepiece to your studio work ow with just the right amount of connectivity and expandability to allow you to record quickly and easily and if you have some pro outboard gear you are not limited to how you use it or have it connected. It feels very much like recording with my 24 channel Audient console, but in many ways without the hassle. I do hope they don’t want it back? ” – James Ivey, Pro Tools Expert
“After waiting 4 months, for my iD44, I have to say, it was definitely worth the wait. This thing is the best sounding audio interface I’ve ever heard. It sounds like a mixing console. Probably because they used the same pre-amps, and converters they use in the huge mixing consoles. And, it has tons of features, more features than any other audio interface, and is expandable to 20 channels in, 24 channels out. The iD44 has literally no competition in this price range, or even in the 2000+ price range. The iD44 is in a class by itself. Absolutely amazing audio interface. Great work Audient. :)” – Dicario
“It’s a solid unit that is well laid out and offers plenty of connectivity but on top of that, it offers that stunning A/D conversion that we have come to expect from Audient in recent years. The mic preamps are smooth and the DI inputs are lively, making it an ideal interface for small to medium setups recording vocals, guitar and a range of other instruments too.” – Rob Gee, Mixdown Mag
“I tested the iD22 for about 48 hours before knowing that the iD44 would be exactly what I needed. With the additional two (for a total of 4) mic-pres, this unit fits my small, quality-home studio set up perfectly. Let me highlight some of my favorite aspects: The DI input absolutely blew me away… with a warm and clear tone recorded directly into my DAW (LogicX). Another great item- HPF; improving every microphone right out of the box. Did you do some research on the A/D – D/A quality from these units? That alone could justify this box. Expansion options. Looking to add the 4-710d from UA to expand my input options with this thing. I feel so comfortable with the clarity of these preamps that I”ll only be looking to match the quality with maybe some tube options/ compression options and other great audio gear to make use of the high-end conversion. (Dream is two Shelford Channels on inserts 1/2 *_*). It”s managed through a great new software/mixer control that I easily downloaded from Audient”s well-managed website. Play back is through a pair of Neumann KH120s… and everything sounds eerily clear and at. I believe I”m hearing the best sounds in my life through this set up. This audio interface will be a centerpiece for many years to come. I recommend this to anyone starting as its all you need to make amazing quality sounds. But the thing about it- for me- is that it brings you into the high-end audio arena with so much potential to grow.” – Matthew Kakani Gabriel
