Product Description

Designed to take your recordings to the next level in every way, the iD4 (MKII) delivers professional audio performance in a compact and modern desktop package, giving you everything you need to make studio-quality recordings at home.

Every iD interface features the Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in our renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE. Designed to deliver ultra-low noise and low distortion with a touch of classic analog warmth, iD4’s Audient mic pre will give you the professional sound you deserve. The Audient mic pre is a high-grade hybrid discrete and op-amp design that delivers a clean, accurate, and detailed translation of your source.

iD4’s converters make sure you hear every nuance, every detail of your audio, letting you hear your mix more accurately. Work faster, make better creative decisions and experience the professional audio performance from your desktop. Equipped with both a jack and mini-jack connection and a powerful headphone amp capable of driving headphones up to 600Ohms, iD4 is ready to take on the most demanding recording sessions. Turn iD4’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.

Don’t let latency slow you down with Monitor Mix. Quickly create and monitor a blend of iD4’s inputs and your computer audio, find the perfect balance and lay down your tracks effortlessly.
