Hampshire, UK (May 31, 2022)—Audient has updated its popular iD44 desktop audio interface with the launch of iD44 (MKII).
The new edition is said to provide better AD/DA converters with a 9 dB improvement. The iD44 (MKII) now also offers Audio Loop-back, so users have the ability to capture playback from multiple applications on the computer at the same time as the microphones, catering to a crucial need for content creators, podcasters and streamers.
The incorporation of a dual headphone amp, including both a ¼” jack and a mini-jack, means three sets of headphones can be plugged in at once. The unit’s all-metal aesthetic has also been rethought, with it now sporting a gray tone.

The iD44 (MKII) also sports main and alt speaker outputs; a trio of user-defined function keys; ScrollControl; dedicated talkback, dim and cut controls; +48V, pad, and HPF switches; an ultra-low latency DSP mixer; word clock output; free software and plug-ins, and more.
The iD44 (MKII) is expected to ship in June 2022 and will retail at the same price as its predecessor: $699 MAP.
