We live in a world populated with a plethora of audio interfaces. The sub-£100 options are particularly plentiful, and manufacturers such as Focusrite take a huge chunk of its sales. But here is a little secret - the Audient ID4, a 2in/2out audio interface. It contains the same mic preamp as their renowned ASP8024-HE recording console. Add to that class-leading converter technology, dual headphone outputs, console style monitor control, JFET D.I and Audient's virtual scroll wheel technology 'ScrollControl', and you have an affordable interface ideal for your home studio or for when you’re on the road. Unsurprisingly, it sounds amazing.

 

 

ScrollControl - The virtual scroll wheel
With a touch of a button iD4’s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel, enabling you to adjust DAW hosts, plug-in parameters and even scroll through your iTunes library - just like you’re adjusting a piece of hardware. Wherever your mouse pointer hovers, the iD knob can scroll to control! And when you're not using ScrollControl, pressing iD4’s volume encoder activates DIM, enabling you to quickly reduce the playback volume.

But can Audient's iD4 really sound like its ASP8024-HE? Well, check out this comparison video.

 

The Audient iD4 is available from Mediaspec for only £97.50 with free delivery.
