EVO by Audient EVO 16 USB Audio Interface

Audient’s most powerful interface yet is here. Make studio-quality recordings with EVO 16’s next-level audio performance.

Make recording easy with the Evo by Audient, the perfect interface for beginner and pro musicians alike. Delivering a powerful recording solution with technology that Audient have refined over the past 20+ years.

Evo makes tracking your ideas easier than ever. When you are singing or playing the Smartgain mode automatically sets the correct input levels with a 58dB gain range from the clean, warm, and accurate EVO preamps.

The EVO 16 is a 24 in/24 out audio interface, perfect for musicians, engineers, producers, content creators, and more.

Eight award-winning EVO Preamps alongside Audient’s advanced converter technology will make everything you do, sound better. Add to that, intelligent mic preamps that set their own levels with Smartgain, the all-new, ground-breaking Motion UI control system, and enough I/O firepower to tackle even the biggest of sessions, EVO 16 is truly a studio powerhouse, designed from the ground up to make recording easy.


Get studio-quality recordings

Level up your audio performance with eight sonically stunning EVO Preamps. Backed by 25 years of engineering experience, Audient’s analogue mic preamp has been designed to deliver the most accurate, clean, and true-to-source version of your audio, no matter what you’re recording.

An analogue mic preamp, but smarter.

Our EVO Preamp technology not only has all the sonic advantages of an analogue mic preamp but combines it with digitally controlled precision, giving you the ability to set your gain with pinpoint accuracy, right down to the decibel.

Advanced Converter Technology. Providing a MASSIVE 121dB of dynamic range, EVO 16’s high-performance converter technology makes sure you hear your audio accurately, helping you make creative decisions confidently, identify issues and improve your recording and mixing game.


A total gain-changer

Make recording drums and larger sessions easy with Smartgain. Automatically set the gain for all 8 channels at once with a simple touch of a button. Powered by Audient’s lightning-quick Smartgain algorithm, Smartgain uses advanced peak analysis to automatically analyse, adjust and set your gain to the perfect levels - all in less than 20 seconds! Now it’s up to you to figure out what to do with all that time you’re saving…


Introducing Motion UI

A powerful new control system. The Motion user interface has been designed to change the way you interact with your audio interface. For the first time, a stunning high-resolution, full-colour screen intelligently displays information as you need it, transforming EVO 16 into a fully immersive, easy-to-use experience.

Every adjustment, every detail, and every button press is beautifully displayed in real-time on a 240X240 TFT backlit LCD Screen, letting you navigate hardware features effortlessly, make changes on the fly and take full control of your recording session without ever looking at your computer.

Plus, IPS technology means information on the screen remains legible no matter your viewing angle - ideal for a variety of setups.


Room for expansion

Digital Outputs: Future Proof your studio and configure your setup to tackle bigger sessions. Whether you’re recording drums or taking on a full band, EVO 16’s optical inputs and outputs have got you covered. Supporting both ADAT and SPDIF, add up to 16 channels of mic preamps to your setup, giving you plenty of options for expanding your studio down the line.

Line Outputs: Connect and listen to your mixes through multiple sets of speakers with EVO 16’s eight-line outputs. Alternatively use the extra line outputs to send audio to external outboard gear, such as compressors or FX units, or to headphone amps for distribution to your artists.

Headphone Outputs: Drive even the most demanding headphones with EVO 16’s two dedicated headphone amps. Easily power headphones up to 600 Ohms all while experiencing detailed monitoring and playback as well as plenty of volume.


Classic tone, modern sound

To build a monster guitar sound you need the right foundation. Audient’s harmonically rich JFET instrument input circuit is designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, providing an ideal sonic foundation before you hit your guitar sims.

For the keen listener. EVO 16 takes critical listening seriously and is packed full of monitoring functionality to back it up. Whether you are switching between two sets of speakers using the ALT monitor feature, checking your mix in Mono, or quickly communicating with your artist using Talkback - all features can be activated straight from EVO 16’s front panel. The best part is you get to customise which control is assigned to the hardware F-button.

Talkback: EVO 16’s dedicated talkback technology lets you 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.

In the studio, every second counts - and with rock-solid driver performance, high-speed USB connection, and ultra-low latency monitoring, EVO 16 will always deliver the reliability needed to keep up with your creativity.


The Mixer

Engineered to simplify your workflow, the EVO Mixer enables you to set up and route your inputs + outputs effortlessly, provide ultra-low latency monitoring, set up dedicated artist headphone mixes and so much more. Compatible with macOS and Windows.

Who said interfaces have to look utilitarian? EVO 16 has been meticulously designed to look amazing on both your desktop and in your rack. Super bright backlit LED lighting not only looks stunning but ensures visibility in the darkest of studios, whilst a solid steel chassis makes sure EVO 16 is built to last.



Compatible with all major audio software and plugins, EVO 16 comes bundled with a collection of professional recording software, including Cubase LE, giving you everything you need to start recording right out of the box.
