Hampshire, UK (May 31, 2022)—Audient has updated its popular iD44 desktop audio interface with the launch of the iD44 (MKII).

The new edition is supposed to provide better AD/DA converters with 9dB improvement. The iD44 (MKII) now also offers audio looping, so users have the ability to capture playback from multiple applications on the computer at the same time as the microphones, fulfilling a crucial need for creators of content, podcasters and streamers.

The incorporation of a dual headphone amp, including both a ¼” jack and a mini-jack, means that three sets of headphones can be plugged in at once. The unit’s all-metal aesthetic has also been redesigned, now with a gray tint.

The unit continues to offer the features of its predecessor, such as four Audient console Class A mic preamps, a pair of ADAT inputs and outputs for digital expansion, two discrete JFET instrument inputs, and two inserts symmetrical. The iD44 (MKII) also sports main and sub speaker outputs; a trio of user-defined function keys; ScrollControl; dedicated talkback, dim and cut controls; +48V, pad, and HPF switches; an ultra-low latency DSP mixer; word clock output; freeware and plug-ins, and more.

The iD44 (MKII) is expected to ship in June 2022 and will retail for the same price as its predecessor: $699 MAP.
