So what is EVO 4?
EVO 4 is a brand new 2 channel audio interface that has some very smart features. More on this in a minute…
How Much is EVO4? The current RRP in Australia is $220
The first thing you notice even before you open up the box is how sleek EVO 4 is. The outer box opens like an expensive smartphone – (it wouldn’t be out of place at an apple store) and once you open up the box, the unit itself strikes a modern, minimalist design aesthetic. It looks expensive, but it’s not. At an RRP of $199 AUD, it’s incredibly affordable. EVO hasn’t skimped on quality either. Yes, it is made of hard plastic but it feels substantial and has the perfect weight to it. With Audient behind the technology you just know this unit will sound great too. And it does! EVO has taken over 20 years of Audient’s technical knowhow and distilled it into the EVO 4. Just check out the specs below.
SMARTGAIN MODE – Smart Gain is a feature that separates EVO from any other Audio Interfaces on the market. Smart Gain essentially sets your recording preamp gain automatically so you can get on with being creative. Being creative is the backbone of the EVO philosophy. They want to take the technical side out of the recording process which in turn makes the singer, guitarist, keyboardist, flugelhorn player to focus on what’s important – capturing that perfect take. At the press of a button, Smartgain sets the perfect level for whatever you want to record. EVO does this for each input independently.
The EVO Smart Touch Feature allows you to control your speakers, headphones and input channels all from one knob. Simply touch a button and the big centre knob does all the work. This not only simplifies the workflow but it adds to the sleek minimal design of the EVO4.
EVO 4 provides connections for two independent mic/line inputs on multifunction XLR/Jack connectors. It has a high gain stereo headphone output on a professional 1/4 inch connector. You get a JFET instrument input for guitars and bass, a pair of 1/4 inch outputs for left and right. The last connection is the USB C connector to connect to up your computer – whether it’s a Mac PC or IOS device.
Loop Playback enables the user to Record Audio from the Computer and EVO inputs at the same time.
