The Audient ID44 mkII is a 20-in 24-out desktop USB audio interface featuring four world-renown Audient mic preamps, class-leading converters as well as ADAT and S/PDIF I/O, providing the sonic performance of Audient consoles and the monitoring function that has made the iD range so popular.

Independent headphone outputs are also provided powered by their own DAC (digital-to-analogue converter) for stunning depth and accuracy.
