"I researched Audient online and was really impressed with what I read and saw. The iD22 fitted my budget at the time so I went for it. It wasn’t until I heard what it sounded like, that my mind was really blown. No bullsh!t, I couldn’t believe the clarity of the conversion compared to my old sound card." - Watermark High (Paul van der Walt)
"IT DOES ALL I NEED, TWO GREAT PREAMPS, A GOOD HEADPHONE PREAMP AND A SIMPLE INTERFACE. YOU CAN CAPTURE RECORDINGS AT A HIGH STANDARD IN A VERY SIMPLE SETUP." – HUGO WHITE (THE MACCABEES)
"Detailed, transparent preamps with plenty of gain and headroom.. Solid hardware.. Incredibly simple setup and operation.. ADAT I/O offers attractive expansion options.. The monitor controller features can be viewed as useful extras.. All in all, the ID22 is a highly capable audio interface that delivers sublime audio quality and a fairly versatile feature set, and all at a competitive price... I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the ID22." - Barry Watson, Sound On Sound
"What sets the Audient iD22 apart from countless other compact audio interfaces I've tried is its big-console feel and sound. And really, it's the most "analog" sounding USB audio interface I've heard!" - Tape Op Magazine

AUDIENT CONSOLE MIC PRES
The professional sound you deserve.
Audient is the only company that use the same Class-A mic pre design throughout their entire product range, whether you’re in the studio with an Audient console or on the road with iD22, you’re always guaranteed the same world class Audient sound.
PRISTINE CONVERTER TECHNOLOGY
Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside.
iD22 provides you with high performance AD-DA converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. 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.
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. If you need to track drums or simply need more inputs you can expand up to ten inputs via an eight-channel mic pre such as Audient's ASP800 or 880.
Integrate your outboard.
Two fully balanced insert points enable you to bring your outboard gear in from the cold and prior to conversion. Insert your favourite compressors or EQs and start creating 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
Customise your control surface
iD22 has a range of incredibly flexible console style monitor control functions such as mono, polarity, dim, cut, speaker select, talkback & cue mix monitoring. Audient knows how important it is to focus on the music and to make tracking as simple as possible we added three programmable function keys. No more time spent searching for software controlled features, just assign the monitoring functions you need to the three hardware function keys and allow the creativity to flow. Real hardware control at your fingertips!
PLUG AND PLAY
Plug in and be inspired.
As well as offering you 2 channels of mic pre, iD22 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.
Discover just how simple it can be.
Audient understands the need to keep things simple and iD22’s mixer app was designed with that in mind. Whether you’re creating low latency cue mixes or utilising the flexible monitor control, iD22 tightly integrates the hardware and software making the recording process easy. Enabling you to concentrate on what’s really important - the music.
