Mic Pre Technology
We take an insight into why our microphone preamplifier design has become so popular amongst so many professionals and hobbyists alike.
What Does The Audient Mic Pre Provide?
Quality begins with the first steps of design
Designed by David Dearden (of DDA & Advision Studios) back in 1997 the Audient mic pre is an all discrete high grade op amp design that delivers low noise, low distortion, and high common mode rejection at all gain levels… offering a faithful reproduction of the source with just enough colour to give the signal some character.
Pristine Converter Technology - Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside
iD14 provides you with high performance AD-DA converters. Quality in the analogue stages of design comes from years of experience as analogue console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as it’s supposed to sound. The importance of converters should never be underestimated. Experience audio the Audient way.
High quality AD/DA converters are a vital factor in hearing what you're recording or mixing accurately. We have chosen some of the best converters available to make sure all our products offer you stunning translation.
Why Do Converters Matter?
All these issues are often down to having poor quality AD-DA converters in your setup and just go to show why high quality converters are vital to improving your mixes or listening experience. High levels of distortion, crosstalk and poor clocking are commonly caused by low quality converters and these factors largely contribute to lower quality recordings and poor translation when making mix decisions. To ensure this doesn’t happen at Audient, the majority of our products utilise class leading converters that will instantly improve your listening experience. So why settle for less…
Only The Best
At Audient they spend months testing and listening to new technologies in order to make the best sounding products they can and the process wasn’t any different when it came to converters. After listening to dozens of different converters they found that Burr Brown were the perfect choice for iD22, iD14 , ASP800 & ASP880 whilst a set of AKM paired nicely with the iD4. Through detailed listening tests on multiple monitors and in various environments they found that these converters consistently offered the most natural and organic representation of the source, enabling you to hear your audio more accurately than ever.
Plug and Play - Simply plug in and be inspired
As well as offering you 2 channels of mic pre, iD14 has a harmonically rich JFET D.I input. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly.
ScrollControl - The virtual scroll wheel
Get hands on control of your software with iD14’s ScrollControl. With a touch of a button iD14’s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel that allows you to adjust DAW hosts, plug-in parameters, iD14’s mixer app 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!
Expand - Grows with your needs
Need to track drums? No problem! As your system grows, iD14 can be expanded via the optical input connector, supporting both ADAT or S/PDIF. Enabling you to expand up to ten inputs via an eight-channel mic pre, such as the ASP800.
Console Style Monitor Control - Customise your control surface
When not using the virtual scroll wheel, the iD button can be assigned to control iD14’s monitoring features. Following in the footsteps of it’s critically acclaimed big brother iD22, we’ve still included DIM, CUT, Polarity Reverse, Mono Sum, Talkback and Cue Mix monitoring, all of which can be assigned to the iD button.
Intuitive Software - Discover just how simple it can be
Audient understand the need to keep things simple and iD14’s mixer app was designed with that in mind. Whether you’re creating low latency cue mixes or utilising the flexible monitor control, iD14 tightly integrates the hardware and software making the recording process easy. Enabling you to concentrate on what’s really important - the music.
Built to last - Quality deserves protection
iD14 has been designed to last, from its all-metal construction, hand finished aluminium knobs and high grade component selection, iD14 will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
