The Audient iD24 is a 10-in/14-out audio interface that has two Class-A mic preamps, class-leading AD/DA converters, ADAT expandability, and configurable monitoring to give an amazing audio performance while remaining simple to use.
The Audient 24 provides incredible audio performance for musicians, producers, and engineers thanks to its class-leading 32-bit DAC converter technology, which offers an impressive 126dB of dynamic range, guaranteeing that every small detail is perfectly translated, resulting in better mix decisions.
This compact audio interface incorporates two of Audient's acclaimed mic preamps with the same discrete circuit architecture as their renowned recording console, the ASP8024-HE. The iD24's two Audient Console mic preamps are designed to give ultra-low noise and low distortion with a hint of vintage analogue warmth. They deliver a clean, accurate, and true to source translation of your audio.
It also has a JFET Instrument input, which is meant to mimic the input stage of a classic valve amplifier and provide the ideal sound foundation for your guitars or basses before hitting your amp simulators.
The iD24 employs eight channels of ADAT to increase the number of recording channels to handle larger sessions such as recording drums or a live band using the iD24's optical input and output connectors. It also has SPDIF for communicating with other digital devices.
This bus-powered USB interface also provides balanced inserts for integrating external outboard FX before conversion. The insert returns also provide direct access to the A/D converters, resulting in the cleanest signal path possible, ideal for print-backs or integrating external line level sources.
Two distinct stereo speaker outputs are also supplied, allowing users to hear their work through multiple pairs of speakers or send an alternate mix to a headphone amplifier for recording artists. Producers and musicians may monitor thanks to two headphone outputs, one with 1/4" jacks and the other concurrently with a mini-jack connector.
Users may apply additional advanced monitoring functions to the three programmable function buttons, allowing them to instantly dim the output, mono sum, or flip the polarity. These may be used for talkback while recording, providing total control over the session.
In terms of Talkback, the iD24 employs specialised technology that allows any connected audio source, such as a computer's built-in microphone, to be utilised as a Talkback microphone, freeing up important mic preamps for recording.
The large multifunction knob allows users to manage volume and various compatible onscreen parameters, including fader adjustment, automation authoring, and more.
The iD24 also has Audio Loop-back capabilities, which allows users to effortlessly route audio from several apps on the computer simultaneously as external microphones, which is great for streaming applications like OBS and others.
