Audient iD44 Or iD14 – Which One Should I Buy?

About 6 months ago audio Interface manufacturer Audient launched the latest in their iD series of USB Audio Interfaces, the Audient iD44. At face value this interface looks fairly similar to their popular and cheaper iD14 interface but there is a lot more under the hood than what you may see at first glance.


The Melbourne Audio Trade Show brings together audio professionals, students, music retailers and wholesalers at the Melbourne SAE campus. As part of the 2018 trade show Studio Connections offered up an Audient iD22 audio interface valued at $799 as a prize. This years lucky winner is 3rd year Bachelor of Audio Engineering Student Izzy La Macchia. We caught up with Izzy for a chat about about SAE, Audient and Music


Audient is proud of the their ARC included software bundle that comes standard with all Audient units. They don’t want to give you useless unrelated software that does little to enhance your creative flow. They want to provide a bundle of tools that helps you create, produce and master your projects without having to go out and buy anything else to get you started.

The announcement of the new ACR Creative Bundle features some really nice plugins from Waldorf and Two Notes. You get over 1 GB of samples from Loopmasters to use. Cubase is still the DAW of choice and Landr is still there to take your tracks to the final step – Mastering.

What is a Network Renderer and why is it Important in a High End Music System?

Since the 1850’s humans have pushed the technological envelope, trying to capture and replay music. Thomas Edison invented the phonograph cylinder in 1877, it quickly evolved from a piece of thin tin wrapped around a cylinder to a wax cylinder and in 1889, the first pre-recorded cylinders were available for sale. This ability to capture a performance and enjoy it at any time later in our own homes, set us on a journey to refine and hone the technology available to us to further the art of recorded music playback.
