Audient iD4 reviews from industry experts
“With the iD4, Audient brings exceptional quality audio performance to its smallest interface yet. The resulting recording was clean and detailed.. The vocal in particular was detailed and smooth.. If you are looking for a small audio interface that doesn’t compromise audio-quality.. The Audient iD4 is an excellent solution.” – Mike Hillier, MusicTech
“Excellent build quality. Very portable. Pristine audio capture. Good monitoring options. Scroll wheel feature is a nice bonus. Zero latency monitoring. Two headphone outs. Speaker mute direct from top panel. Competitively priced given the feel and performance on offer.” – Hollin Jones, Ask.Audio
“Audient’s compact iD4 interface offers a lot of bang for pleasingly little buck. Alongside it being an ideal audio interface for a solo singer/instrumentalist, I could easily see myself using the iD4 for those occasions where I don’t want to fire up the entire studio just to get an idea down before inspiration disappears. Nice one, Audient!“ – Bob Thomas, Sound On Sound
