Audient iD44 mkII USB Audio Interface


Audient’s most powerful audio interface just got better. The latest generation of iD44 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 pre’s, class-leading converters, ADAT expandability and balanced inserts, means iD44 delivers the audio performance of an Audient console straight to your desktop.

 

Main Features

Every iD interface features the Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in Audient's 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 pre’s will give you the professional sound you deserve.

Offering an incredible 126dB 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. Just when we thought we couldn’t make the original iD44 sound any better, the MKII sees a massive 9dB improvement on the ADC’s THD+N figure, meaning clean audio with less added noise and even less audible distortion.

Expand via ADAT and 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.

Integrate your favourite outboard FX prior to conversion and start creating signal chains that rival the very best. The insert returns also give 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.

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

 

Plug and Play

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.

The iD mixer tightly integrates hardware and software, letting you effortlessly set up low latency direct monitoring, create up to four stereo artist cue mixes, name and customise channels, save layout presets, assign hardware function buttons and quickly setup advanced routing.

iD44’s dedicated talkback technology enables you to use any audio source connected to your computer, such as a built-in or USB microphone as your talkback mic, freeing up valuable mic preamps for recording.

Speed up your workflow with iD44’s three programmable function buttons. Assign any of the advanced monitoring features, including Speaker Select, Mono Sum, Polarity Reverse or Cue Mix monitoring, to any of the F-buttons and quickly take control of your session.

 

Be in the Moment with Multiple Outputs

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 utilising 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.

 

Creativity Unleashed

Now equipped with Audio Loop-back, iD44 can quickly transform into a multipurpose 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.

  • Record your computer’s audio
  • Send audio to live streams
  • Collaborate on mixes online
  • Record gaming audio

iD44’s loop-back feature is controlled via the software mixer, enabling you to select the Loop-back source from 6 different options to suit a variety of practical scenarios. Endless possibilities, speedy workflow.

ScrollControl - Turn iD44’s volume knob into a virtual scroll wheel and take control of a variety of compatible onscreen parameters. Quickly dial-in settings, adjust faders or even write in automation without spending hours staring at the screen.

USB 2.0 - iD44 comes with both a standard USB cable and a USB Type-C cable enabling you to connect to any USB compatible Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 or above.

Free Software with ARC - Bundled with a free suite of creative software including Cubase LE, alongside industry-leading plugins and virtual instruments, you can start recording as soon as you open the box.
