Hear it for yourself.

Evolution of the Audient Mic Pre

Quality begins with the first steps of design

Designed by David Dearden (of DDA & Advision Studios) back in 1997 the Audient mic pre is an all discrete high grade op amp design that delivers low noise, low distortion, and high common mode rejection at all gain levels… offering a faithful reproduction of the source with just enough colour to give the signal some character.

The Design Rationale

The quest for musical transparency

The microphone preamplifier has historically been the most difficult circuit block to design and also the block where designers have striven to express their individuality. David Dearden has always been on a quest for musical transparency and below he outlines his design.

David’s Design:

 

“A successful mic pre doesn’t just have to amplify a low level signal up to something which is more useable. It must also be protected against external attack such as static, phantom power and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).

This is where component choice is vital, especially the low noise transistors and even passive elements such as resistors and RFI filters. Finding input transistors suitable for low impedance sources has always been a problem and after extensive evaluation we selected a unique transistor originally designed for Vinyl player preamps, which was perfect for the job!

Since then we have continued to innovate this key part of the Audient ‘sound’ and after much sonic evaluation, implemented a new transistor with similar characteristics in a surface mount (SMT) transistor package.”

“Although, surface mount components are not always the same as their traditional equivalents. Sometimes they are even better! We use a mixture of SMT & traditional parts based upon one critieria – which one offers the best performance for a given role.

However, resistors are not in some areas, especially when it comes to mic amp electronics which require low resistances and high currents to minimize noise. In certain critical areas of a high gain circuit, standard SMT parts were noticeably inferior, exhibiting more noise. In these cases there was little option but to remain with what was known to be good old fashioned metal film resistors with larger bodies.”

“The best choice of components and the most elegant of designs are easily ruined by careless PCB (printed circuit board) layouts. Neat doesn’t necessarily mean optimum.”

An understanding of the circuit operation and current paths is required for best results and I’ve spent over 20 years striving for continuous improvement in our circuit design and how our products sound. To this day my mic pre design is still being used all over the world – I must’ve done something right! Think like an electron!

Pristine Converter Technology

Brilliance on the inside enables brilliance on the outside

iD14 provides you with high performance AD-DA converters. Quality in the analogue stages of design comes from years of experience as analogue console designers, and when coupled with outstanding converter technology it enables you to hear audio as it’s supposed to sound. The importance of converters should never be underestimated. Experience audio the Audient way.

Plug and Play

Simply plug in and be inspired

As well as offering you 2 channels of mic pre, iD14 has a harmonically rich JFET D.I input. Designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, you can plug your guitar, bass, keyboard or drum machine straight in and start recording instantly.

Replicates classic valve amp tones

Perfect for guitars, synths and bass

ScrollControl

The virtual scroll wheel

Get hands on control of your software with iD14’s ScrollControl. With a touch of a button iD14’s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel that allows you to adjust DAW hosts, plug-in parameters, iD14’s mixer app and even scroll through your iTunes library – just like you’re adjusting a piece of hardware. Wherever your mouse pointer hovers, the iD knob can scroll to control!

Expand

Grows with your needs

Need to track drums? No problem! As your system grows, iD14 can be expanded via the optical input connector, supporting both ADAT or S/PDIF. Enabling you to expand up to ten inputs via an eight-channel mic pre, such as the ASP800.

Console Style Monitor Control

Customise your control surface

When not using the virtual scroll wheel, the iD button can be assigned to control iD14’s monitoring features. Following in the footsteps of it’s critically acclaimed big brother iD22, we’ve still included DIM, CUT, Polarity Reverse, Mono Sum, Talkback and Cue Mix monitoring, all of which can be assigned to the iD button.

Talkback Control

Intuitive software

Software you can rely on

We understand the need to keep things simple and iD14’s mixer app was designed with that in mind. Whether you’re creating low latency cue mixes or utilising the flexible monitor control, iD14 tightly integrates the hardware and software making the recording process easy. Enabling you to concentrate on what’s really important – the music.

       Windows               MacOS

Talkback

Communication is Key

iD14’s new dedicated talkback technology enables you to utilize any audio source connected to your computer such as a built in or USB microphone as your talkback mic, freeing up valuable mic pres while offering an effective talkback solution no matter where you are..

Use your computers built in mic for talkback

Built to last

Quality deserves protection

iD14 has been designed to last, from its all-metal construction, hand finished aluminium knobs and high grade component selection, iD14 will stand up to countless late nights in the studio and days on the road.
