Audient's iD24 takes everything amazing about the company's fan-favorite iD24 and packs it into a streamlined desktop interface. This 10 x 14 USB-C interface flaunts two of Audient's console microphone preamps, a JFET instrument input, multiple class-leading converters, ADAT expandability, and a DSP mixer. Its mic preamps boast the same circuit design as Audient's renowned ASP8024-HE console, with ultra-low noise and imperceptible distortion while maintaining a hint of the analog character you love. And with 60dB of gain on tap, you can use your favorite low-output ribbon mic on subdued sources. This unit's DI input provides harmonic enhancement modeled after the input stage of a classic tube amplifier. If you've craved the power and features of an iD44 but don't need that much I/O, the iD24 is the perfect audio interface for you.
One of the hallmarks of Audient's interfaces is their high-performance AD/DA conversion. For iD24, Audient's team of engineers pulled out all the stops, imbuing it with 126dB of dynamic range and a THD+N figure of 112 dB. Plug into this USB-C audio interface, and you'll notice more headroom, less audible distortion, and reduced noise in your signal than most other units in its class. With its outstanding conversion capabilities, all you have to do is press record. iD24 does the rest.
With its two optical input and output connectors, Audient's iD24 enables impressive expandability. It supports ADAT and S/PDIF, ensuring flawless integration with your outboard gear. It also adds up to eight channels of mic preamps to your rig. Two fully balanced insert points make it easy to integrate your outboard gear before conversion, letting you quickly insert your favorite vintage mic preamps, compressors, or EQs. Do you host a livestream in your spare time? You're in luck! iD24's built-in loopback functionality makes livestreaming a breeze. Whether you're working on new music or entertaining your followers, iD24 has your back.
Taking inspiration from Audient's extensive analog console design heritage, iD24 features extremely flexible monitor control functionality that includes dedicated cut and dim buttons, along with polarity, mono, speaker selection, and cue mix monitoring. You can assign all monitoring functions to three programmable buttons without menu diving for inscrutable software-controlled features! Simply assign the monitoring functions you require and take control of your session. Engineers at Sweetwater love Audient's console-style approach to hardware control — and so will you.
iD24's mix-focused iD Mixer software lets you create up to four stereo artist cue mixes. Additionally, it allows you to name and customize channels, save layout presets, assign hardware function buttons, quickly set up advanced routing, use presets in standalone mode, and much more. The iD Mixer software is tightly and elegantly integrated with iD24's hardware, streamlining the recording process by giving you complete control.
A console's center section is its nerve center for communications and monitoring control, and iD24 is intelligently designed to replicate this powerful functionality. Press a button, and iD24's volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel, allowing you to take control of your DAW, plug-ins, and more — as if you were adjusting a piece of hardware. Quickly dial in settings, tweak faders, or even write in automation without spending time staring at a screen.
From its high-grade components to its all-metal construction and hand-finished aluminum knobs, Audient's iD24 is precision engineered to give you years of reliable performance in the studio and on the road. iD24 ships with both a standard USB cable and a USB Type-C cable, so you can connect it to any USB-compatible Mac or PC that supports USB 2.0 and above.
