Audient has announced that the highly anticipated bus-powered interface, iD14, is now shipping worldwide and available at all Audient dealers.

Launched at this year’s MusikMesse in Frankfurt, iD14 offers two channels of Audient’s classic console mic pres delivering 10 in/4 out with Burr-Brown AD/DA converters, all in a compact, stylish desktop package.

“The mic pres are exactly the same as those found in our flagship ASP8024 console and throughout the rest of the product range, delivering unbeatable audio quality for the price,’ says Tom Waterman, Audient’s technical director.

One of the few USB audio interfaces in its price range to offer ADAT expandability, iD14 gives the option to add external mic pres – such as the soon to be available ASP800 – which increases the number of inputs by up to 10.

iD14 introduces Audient’s revolutionary ScrollControl, giving the user hands-on control. At the touch of a button, iD14’s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel allowing adjustment of DAW hosts, plug-in parameters, iD14’s mixer app and even scroll through an iTunes library – just like adjusting a piece of hardware.

Other features include:

• 1 x Discrete JFET Instrument Input
• Main Speaker Output
• Independent Class-AB Headphone Output
• Full Monitor Control Functionality (software controlled)
• ADAT Input for Expandability
• Low Latency DSP Mixer
• iD ScrollControl Mode
• All-Metal Enclosure
