Up until 2013 Audient were known as a highly respected boutique recording console manufacturer, but this all changed when in that year Audient released the iD22 Audio Interface. Since then Audient has solidified themselves as one of the top tier Audio Interface designers on the market and continue to expand their ever popular range.
From its initial announcement the iD22 was a smash hit featuring the same high quality microphone preamps as their famous ASP8024-HE recording console. It quickly became the audio interface for audio engineers and producers wanting to make high level recordings at home. Adding to the famous mic preamps the iD22 offered balanced insert points to connect up a compressor or EQ into the recording chain – genius. The iD22 is so good that the it still sells well today some 10 years on without any upgrades – unheard of for any computer peripheral let alone an audio interface.
Since the release of the legendary iD22 Audient has gone on to release a range of exceptional interfaces from the single channel iD4 up the to 4 channel iD44. While these interfaces offered a range of features customers asked for, the original iD22 owners have been asking for a second iteration of this legendary device.
Enter the new Audient iD24, taking everything the original iD22 offered and adding modern compatibility.
Every iD interface features the Audient Console Mic Preamp, the same discrete circuit design found in our renowned recording console the ASP8024-HE.
