    Audient Console Mic Pres

    iD44 features four Class-A console mic pres, the same discrete circuit design found in our renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE and throughout our product range. Designed to deliver ultra- low noise and low distortion, the Audient mic pre will provide an accurate reproduction of your source, along with enough analogue warmth to add a bit of character, making it the go to mic pre for any project. 

    Class leading Converter Technology

    Hear your audio more accurately than ever with iD44’s all new high performance AD/DA converter technology. Our next generation converters have been designed to deliver optimised dynamic range, ensuring you hear the most honest and natural translation of your recording. Hear subtle detail, make better mix decisions and experience remarkable clarity from the moment you press play.

    Digital Expansion

    Equipped with two Optical input and output connectors,  iD44 gives you plenty of options for expansion. Supporting both ADAT and SPDIF, iD44 enables you to add up to 16 channels of mic pres to your setup - perfect for bigger sessions or tracking a live band. 

    Plug in and Play

    As well as offering you 4 channels of mic pre, iD44 has two harmonically rich JFET D.I inputs designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier. Simply plug in your guitar, bass or synth whenever inspiration strikes and start recording instantly.

    Mr Andrew Bird5th Aug 2021

    My first interface since 1999, the Audient was an easy decision with optical IO, meaning I can still use legacy interfaces. The pre amps are lovely and even drive a 57 beautifully. The UI features are fantastic as is the software, but the physical design feels like an afterthought with that massive old-school logo. However these things don't matter so much as the sound is beautiful, which is what counts.

    Still have the ID14 but the ID44 is another level. Read a lot of reviews talking about the difference in DAC but I think they’re amazing - very detailed. A great all round interface - best on the market!
