Simplify the recording process and attain the audio performance of a large-format console in a compact and elegant desktop package with the Audient iD4, a high-performance 2x2 USB audio interface designed by respected experts for musicians, producers, voiceover artists, and more.

The iD4 boasts a single Class-A mic preamp of the same design found in Audient's world-class consoles, ensuring gold-star treatment for your dynamic or phantom-powered condenser microphones. A harmonically rich JFET 1/4" instrument input is also provided, so you can plug your guitar or bass directly into the interface and get the character of valve amplifiers.

Outfitted with 24-bit / 96 kHz AKM AD/DA converters, the iD4 delivers premium accuracy while remaining natural and musical, devoid of problems caused by distortion and unstable clocking. Zero-latency monitoring is made possible through the adjustable monitor mix, which features a simple knob to set the balance of the live input signal and the output from your DAW.

With stereo 1/4" monitor outputs, two Class-AB headphone outputs (3.5mm and 1/4"), and comprehensive console-style monitor control, the iD4 interface lets you listen to your content in high quality, smoothly adjust your levels, and access dim, cut, and more. Plus, there's the revolutionary ScrollControl, a function that can be used to control anything over which your mouse pointer hovers.

DAW software, virtual instruments, samples, cabinet simulation, and more are included to get you started on your path toward achieving polished productions. The iD4 can be powered via USB from your Mac/Windows computer, no external power supply needed. For operation with an iOS mobile device such as an iPad or iPhone, all you need is an Apple Camera Adapter Kit and a powered USB hub (both available separately) and you're ready to start recording anywhere.

Class-A Microphone Preamp

The iD4 incorporates a Class-A microphone design developed by legend David Dearden and optimized over 20 years of refinement. It features a high-grade opamp design that delivers low noise, low distortion, and high common mode rejection at all gain levels.

Analog I/O

The analog I/O includes two XLR-1/4" combo mic/line inputs and a harmonically rich JFET DI input, which is designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier—plug your guitar, bass, keyboard, or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly.

With balanced 1/4" stereo speaker outputs and dual Class-AB headphone outputs (3.5mm and 1/4"), you can enjoy clear and convenient monitoring through your favorite headphones and active monitors. You can even connect two sets of headphones for jamming with a friend.

ScrollControl

With a touch of a button, the iD4's volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel that allows you to adjust DAW hosts, plug-in parameters, iD4's mixer app, and even scroll through your iTunes library. Wherever your mouse pointer hovers, the iD knob can scroll to control.

When not using the virtual scroll wheel, the iD button can be assigned to control the unit's monitoring features such as dim, polarity reverse, mono sum, talkback, and more.

Console-Style Monitor Controller

Take advantage of the onboard console-style monitor control functions including dim, cut, and big-knob level control; features you'd normally only find in far more expensive interfaces.

Monitor Mix

The iD4's Monitor Mix feature lets you monitor a blend of both iD4's inputs and your DAW playback, providing near-zero-latency monitoring while recording. Designed with creativity in mind, Monitor Mix allows you to quickly blend in your DAW playback and start recording along to your multitrack instantly, enabling you to focus on the music and lay down your track effortlessly.

Monitor Pan

Use the Monitor Pan feature to pan both the mic pre input and DI input from left to right, making it easy for you to create a balanced headphone mix that suits you. Quickly plug in, set up a headphone mix, and starting tracking, perfect for singer songwriters and producers on the go.

Mac, Windows, and iOS Compatibility

The iD4 can be powered via USB from your Mac/Windows computer, no external power supply needed. For operation with an iOS mobile device such as an iPad or iPhone, all you need is an Apple Camera Adapter Kit and a powered USB hub (both available separately), and you're ready to start recording anywhere.

Rugged Durability

Thanks to all-metal construction, hand-finished aluminum knobs, and high-grade component selection, the iD4 can stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.

Bundled Software
