USA - Audient has launched the iD44 MKII, an upgrade to the company’s most powerful desktop audio interface.
“As far as audio performance was concerned, iD44 was already fully spec’d,” opens Andy Allen, Audient’s marketing director. “Yet we saw an opportunity to make the best better: making a major improvement to the all important ADC’s, incorporating additional must-have features and styling it with a beautiful new smoke-grey finish. All at the same price, delivering yet more value to our customers!”
The ADCs’ THD+N figure sees a 9dB improvement, representing a step up in audio performance for the MKII. “That’s super clean audio with less added noise and even less audible distortion,” says Allen.
iD44 (MKII) now also benefits from the addition of Audio Loop-back, so users have the ability to capture playback from multiple applications on the computer at the same time as the microphones - ideal for content creators, podcasters and streamers.
The incorporation of a dual headphone amp means three sets of headphones can be plugged in at once. The new unit also has a metal enclosure.
Allen continues: “The combination of these enhancements alongside four Audient Console mic preamps, class-leading converters, ADAT expandability and balanced inserts means iD44 (MKII) really does deliver the audio performance of an Audient console straight to your desktop, and ensures with iD44, our customers get a professional grade audio interface without breaking the bank.”
iD44 (MKII) is expected to ship this month and will retail at the same price as its predecessor: £499.99 inc VAT, €599 inc local VAT and $699 MAP.
