Audient iD4 MKII Audio Interface


Audient designs the iD14 MKII to take your home recordings to the next level! Firstly, the iD14 MKII delivers professional audio performance in a compact and modern desktop package. Secondly, it gives you everything you need to make studio quality recordings at home. Most importantly, it is very affordable!


What’s new in the iD14 MKII audio interface?

  • Updated look & feel — A sleek new gunmetal housing and cleaner top-down interface gives the iD14 MKII a look and workflow that are better built to stand the test of time in your studio.
  • USB 3.0 speeds — With a data transmission cap that’s 10 times higher than its predecessor, the iD14 MKII boasts a much snappier connection to your laptop. This translates to lower latency and much-reduced round-trip speeds.
  • USB-C connection — A USB-C to USB-C connection (cable included) makes the MKII version of the iD14 compatible with even more modern devices on the market. It’s completely USB 3.0 bus powered, so you can produce great music and content beyond the studio walls.
  • Even better audio performance — The previous iD14 was one of the cleanest and quietest interfaces in its class. We’re pleased to report that the iD14 MKII is even better, with an improved dynamic range on both the ADC (+5dB) and DAC (+9dB). This means, whether you’re tracking or monitoring, the MKII is your key to a cleaner, quieter studio.
  • Studio-grade headphone amp — A new 600Ω headphone amplifier with dual independent outputs (1/4″ and 1/8″) makes the iD14 the ideal front end for track monitoring to casual listening.
  • Free ARC software suite— Thanks to its included software bundle, the iD14 MKII is an even better option for budding songwriters and producers. Registering your product online gets you access to Steinberg’s Cubase/Cubasis LE3 DAW, the Two Notes Wall of Sound cab simulation, a host of virtual instruments from Waldorf and Gforce, and three introductory courses from Produce Like a Pro.
