Audient console mic pres: the professional sound you deserve
Every iD interface features the Audient Console mic preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in the renowned ASP8024-HE recording console. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analog warmth, iD44 MkII's four Audient mic pres will give you the professional sound you deserve.
Class-leading converters: brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside
Offering an incredible 126dB of dynamic range, iD44 MkII'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 make better mix decisions. Experience remarkable clarity from the moment you press play.
Even better ADC performance
Just when Audient's engineers thought they couldn't make the original iD44 sound any better, 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: more channels, more possibilities
Easily configure your studio to tackle bigger sessions. Equipped with two optical input and output connectors, iD44 MkII 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 – ideal for bigger sessions.
Balanced inserts: hardware integration
Integrate your favorite outboard effects 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 and making them great for print-backs or integrating outboard line level sources.
JFET instrument inputs: plug and play
Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, iD44 MkII features two harmonically rich JFET instrument inputs, giving you the perfect sonic foundation for your guitars or basses before you hit your amp sims.
Software mixer: experience ultra-low latency
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 customize channels, save layout presets, assign hardware function buttons and quickly set up advanced routing.
Talkback: innovation meets communication
iD44 MkII'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.
Advanced console-style monitor control: work faster
Speed up your workflow with iD44 MkII'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.
Multiple outputs: be in the moment
Connect and listen to your mixes through two sets of speakers with iD44 MkII's four line outputs. Alternatively, use the extra line outputs to send audio to an external headphone amp for distribution to your artists.
Easily record and collaborate with others by utilizing 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 MkII benefits from the addition of a dual headphone output, including both 1/4" and 1/8" jacks on headphone output one, providing even more monitoring flexibility when you need it.
Audio loopback: creativity unleashed
Now equipped with audio loopback, iD44 MkII 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 loopback lets you create a custom audio feed ready to send to your streaming software, ideal for content creators, podcasters and streamers. iD44 MkII's loopback feature is controlled via the software mixer, enabling you to select the loopback source from six different options to suit a variety of practical scenarios.
ScrollControl: the virtual scroll wheel
Turn iD44 MkII'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: make a connection
iD44 MkII comes with both a standard USB cable and a USB-C cable, enabling you to connect to any USB-compatible Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 or above.
All-metal construction: built to last
