The results are simply stunning - pin sharp stereo imaging, a fast low end with an impeccably detailed and smooth top end.
World Class Mic Pres
iD22 provides two classic Audient microphone preamplifiers - the same pre amps that have become renowned with over 50,000 channels in use worldwide. This hybrid design utilizes a class-A front end to provide clean and musical characteristics that sound stunning on any session. iD22 has the best mic preamp found on any audio interface and instantly provides a platform to produce outstanding recordings. Both input channels have a pad to handle hot levels, phantom power for condenser microphones, a high pass filter to remove unwanted low frequencies and a polarity switch to help you phase align your inputs. Channel two features a discrete JFET DI input for you guitars, synths and other instruments.
Grows with your Needs
iD22 is more than just a two in, six out interface. As your system grows iD22 can be expanded via the optical input and output connectors, supporting both ADAT and SPDIF. When tracking drums you can expand up to ten inputs via an eight-channel mic pre such as our ASP880 into the iD22 via ADAT. When working with your favorite outboard reverb, this can be connected in stereo via S/PDIF and integrated via the mixer app offering you a practical and flexible desktop package.
Fully Balanced Inserts
The two fully balanced insert points give you the chance to add your processing prior to conversion. Insert your favorite compression and EQ to build vocal chains that rival the very best. The insert return also gives you direct access to the analogue to digital converters - providing the cleanest signal path possible, making it great for print-backs or integrating outboard line level sources.
Console Style Monitor Control
iD22 has built-in console style monitor control functions - Mono, polarity, dim, cut, speaker switching, talkback & cue mix monitoring. This makes iD22 the first audio interface that truly is the hub of a studio. You can assign any input channel to be the talkback source from the mixer app, and feed it straight into the two cue mixes.
Beatifully Simple Mixer App
All the internal routing, mixing and configuration of iD22 can be done within the iD22 mixer app. You can even label your channels ‘console-tape’ style for that authentic Audient experience! As well as being easy on the eye, the mixer app is designed to keep out of your way and let the music be the prime focus.
Built To Last
Quality deserves protection and iD22 has been designed to last. Its all-metal construction, machined aluminum knobs and toggle switches will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
