PRISTINE CONVERTER TECHNOLOGY

iD14 provides you with high performance AD-DA converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. Quality in the analogue stages of design comes from years of experience as analogue console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as its supposed to sound. The importance of converters should never be underestimated. Experience audio the Audient way.

THE REVOLUTIONARY 'SCROLLCONTROL'

Get hands on control of your software with iD14s ScrollControl. With a touch of a button iD14s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel that allows you to adjust DAW hosts, plug-in parameters, iD14s mixer app and even scroll through your iTunes library - just like youre adjusting a piece of hardware. Wherever your mouse pointer hovers, the iD knob can scroll to control!

PLUG AND PLAY

As well as offering you 2 channels of mic pre, iD14 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.

GROWS WITH YOUR NEEDS

Need to track drums? No problem! As your system grows, iD14 can be expanded via the optical input connector, supporting both ADAT or S/PDIF. Enabling you to expand up to ten inputs via an eight-channel mic pre, such as the ASP800.

I purchased the iD14 yesterday, and everything is beautiful so far. Setup was a breeze with no issues; I downloaded and installed the drivers and plugged the unit in and all of that took like 3 minutes. The software interface for controlling the buttons and faders is nicely designed and there's lot of nice small thoughtful features, which is a good sign. The hardware itself feels very good, and the big volume control knob is simply fantastic. I adjusted the latency settings to minimum and made a quick recording, and never once heard any click or pop etc. (That being said please note that I have spent some time in the past optimizing Windows 10 to be doing as little as possible when I am recording. Every little thing adds up!) My Studio One preferences panel reports that the latency is 2.5ms in and 2.5ms out, and I had also set the iD4 to 96khz/24bit so I have to admit I am very happy with the purchase. I'll revisit this review in a few weeks to see what I can add that might be helpful.

I've had the Audient iD14 for just over a year and loved it...until last week. I've used this interface to record guitar/bass Di, vocals, Podcasts, and 10 channels of drums by utilizing the ADAT input. Everything was going great until last week while recording a voice-over it started to send only noise into my DAW. After updating the drivers and firmware with no success I contacted Audient Customer Support. We have emailed back and forth for almost 2 weeks now with no resolution in sight. My ticket has been turned over to the Canadian service centre and I have heard nothing from them since (4 days ago now). I'd love to recommend this product because while it worked it was exactly what I wanted: clean pre's and lots of expandability from the ADAT. But if the unit can hardly make it a year before kicking the bucket then I would say put your money into a different product.

Super interface. Preamps sound incredible, DI is great, and the converters are way better than anything else in this range. Never had a single issue with anything on this unit. These Audient interfaces are an insane value for the price. I don't know what the other reviewer is talking about. Must have been user error. There are thousands of people who use these units without any problems.

I bought this interface because of all the hype online saying its the best sounding interface in its price range. Brought it home, set it up and was not happy at all ... when trying to record vocals and test it out id hear non stop popping and cracking sounds and it also made my studio monitors give out a static like noise. Tried fixing the issues for hours with no luck . Also its built in mix software sucks cant even turn it up enough with out it peaking and popping . I uninstalled it and reinstalled my focusrite 2i2 ...boom nothing like the audient i can play my monitors as loud as i want with a nice clear sound and no popping clearly its the interface luckily i bought it today and will be refunding tomorow .
