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.
Channel Status: Pressing an input or output button momentarily displays the channel name, the levels and the functions activated for that specific channel. All the information you ever need in one place.
Metering: Keep an eye on your levels by quickly cycling through your inputs and outputs with EVO 16’s crystal clear, full-colour metering.
One Knob Control: Designed to keep your session in motion, One-Knob-Control lets you glide through EVO 16’s hardware features from a single centralised point. Unlimited power, simple control.
Function Button: Thanks to the customisable F-button, you can assign any of EVO 16’s advanced monitoring controls to the programmable function button. Your workflow, just the way you like it.
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.
Advanced Monitor Control
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.
Communication is key
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.
Speed meets reliability - Ultra-fast USB
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.
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.
Looks that could kill
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.
Stacked or Racked
Although packed full of features, EVO 16 defies the normal with its deceptively small form factor. At just over 16in wide with non-slip rubber feet, EVO 16 works perfectly whether on your desktop, under your laptop or as a permanent fixture to your studio with optional rack ears (not included).
In order to minimise Audient’s environmental impact, EVO 16’s detachable rack ears will be available as a free optional extra, reducing required raw materials, shipping volumes, and thus Audient’s carbon footprint. We have also taken great steps to ensure EVO 16’s packaging utilises recycled materials whilst keeping plastic usage to a minimum.
All of Audient’s products come with a three-year limited warranty guaranteeing you further protection and peace of mind when you choose EVO by Audient.
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.
