iD22 provides two analogue inputs and six analogue outputs, these are driven by high quality 24-bit/96kHz convertors. Through months of tests we optimsed component selections and circuit topologies to obtain every last ounce of convertor performance. The results are simply stunning - pin sharp stereo imaging, a fast low end with an impeccably detailed and smooth top end.
iD22 provides two classic Audient microphone preamplifiers - the same pre amps that have become renowned with over 50,000 channels in use worldwide. Our hybrid design utilises a class-A front end to provide clean and musical characteristics that sound stunning on any session. iD22 has the best mic preamp found on any audio interface and instantly provides a platform to produce outstanding recordings.
Both input channels have a pad to handle hot levels, phantom power for condenser microphones, a high pass filter to remove unwanted low frequencies and a polarity switch to help you phase align your inputs. Channel two features a discrete JFET DI input for you guitars, synths and other instruments.
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. When tracking drums you can expand up to ten inputs via an eight-channel mic pre such as our ASP008 into the iD22 via ADAT. When working with your favourite outboard reverb, this can be connected in stereo via S/PDIF and integrated via the mixer app offering you a practical and flexible desktop package.
The two fully balanced insert points give you the chance to add your processing prior to conversion. Insert your favourite compression and EQ to build 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.
iD22 has built-in console style monitor control functions - Mono, polarity, dim, cut, speaker switching, talkback & cue mix monitoring. This makes iD22 the first audio interface that truly is the hub of a studio.
You can assign any input channel to be the talkback source from the mixer app, and feed it straight into the two cue mixes.
We understand how important it is for you to be able to focus on the music and have designed the iD22 with that in mind. No more time spent searching for that software talkback control, just assign the functions you need to the three hardware function keys and allow the creativity to flow. The solid aluminium control knobs look and feel great, and the dedicated DIM and CUT controls give you the hands-on control that’s familiar to large format console users.
Quality deserves protection and iD22 has been designed to last. It's all-metal construction, machined aluminium knobs and toggle switches will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
