Audient iD4 overview

  • 1Description

The Audient iD4 High-Performance USB Audio Interface was designed with musicians in mind to simplify the recording process while providing the artist with one of the company's renowned Class-A console-grade microphone preamplifiers. Housed in a desktop-style chassis, it delivers the audio performance of a large-format console in a compact and elegant desktop package. The unit provides a world-class Audient console mic pre, high performance converter technology, console-style monitor control, JFET D.I., and the revolutionary ScrollControl. The iD4 is USB bus-powered and compatible with Mac OS X, Windows, and iOS.

Microphone Preamps
  • Use a class-A microphone design developed by legend David Dearden and optimized over 18 years of refinement
  • Clean, punchy and musical character
  • Flexible topology – design optimized gain range between 0 - 70 dB gain
  • Low Noise Floor:  30,000 times quieter than the signal level
  • Wide Bandwidth: Preserving your transient detail
  • Transformer-less, RF-immune input stage for detailed resolution
  • iD4 provides you with high-performance AD-DA converters. Quality in the analog stages of design comes from years of experience as analog console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as it’s supposed to sound
  • With a touch of a button iD4’s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel, enabling you to adjust DAW hosts, plug-in parameters and even scroll through your iTunes library, just like you’re adjusting a piece of hardware. Wherever your mouse pointer hovers, the iD knob can scroll to control, and when you're not using ScrollControl, pressing iD4’s volume encoder activates DIM, enabling you to quickly reduce the playback volume
Plug and Play
  • iD4 has a harmonically rich JFET D.I input. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard, or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly
Monitor Pan
  • iD4’s Monitor Pan feature enables you to pan both the mic pre input and D.I input from left to right, making it easy for you to create a balanced headphone mix that suits you
Monitor Mix
  • 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
Dual Headphone Outputs
  • Featuring a dual headphone output, iD4 enables you to collaborate with your friends and other artists. Whether you’re recording a guitar and a vocal, or just listening to music together, iD4 lets you plug in two sets of headphones, making it the perfect tool for jamming with your friends and capturing creativity as it happens. The dual headphone output also has both a jack and mini jack output, so no more need to carry around a headphone adapter
Built to Last
  • iD4 has been designed to last, from its all-metal construction, hand-finished aluminum knobs and high-grade component selection, iD4 will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road

    Audient iD4 reviews

    iD4 High-Performance USB Audio Interface is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Review of the Audient iD4 Im not a professional guy. I just enjoy making music and occasionally do my own singing... I was using Mobile Pre USB for the past 10 years. It was okay for what I was doing but I thought I would upgrade to something a little bit better. I did some homework and found the Audient iD4  to be a good upgrade. Well, after using it for a week, I can tell you that this unit is superb! gave me so much more than what I asked for. I can also hear the improve sound over my old M-Audio unit. I highly recommend it to anyone who doesnt want to spend a lot of money but yet want a good audio interface!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent interface Excellent sound quality. Nice feature set. I've only been using it for a few days but it seems to be well built and the drivers are stable so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent preamps, minor hardware quibbles I am using the Audient iD4 for voiceover with a Sennheiser shotgun microphone plugged in. The preamp in this unit is outstanding and yields a flat, clear sound. I find that my microphone does require the gain to be turned up about 2/3 of the way to get a good signal. Ultimately I might put a Fethead Phantom in front of the microphone but it will do just fine without one. There is one issue I have with the iD4 and that is with the headphone settings. This unit does not save your headphone level or pan settings because there is no indicator on the dial where your levels are set. So this will reset your headphone volume and will pan the inputs hard to one side every time you turn off your computer. Very irritating. I contacted Audient because I thought this indicated a fault with the hardware. They said that this was a standard function of the iD4. They need to strongly consider pushing out a firmware update to allow the unit to save the headphone settings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless Product! Simple to use yet affords a powerful boost for a VO dynamic mic set up paired with a dbx 286s channel strip for ultra clean and professional results - highly recommended for this type of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tool! The interface provides a high quality signal to the USB port from my RODE NTG mic. It is well built.
