Audient iD14 USB Audio Interface and Monitor Controller
The Audient iD14 delivers the audio performance of a large format console in a compact and elegant desktop package.

With its versatile feature set and intuitive layout, iD14 will become the hub of your studio in no time.
World Class Mic Pres
Audient are the only company that use the same Class-A mic pre design throughout our entire product range, whether you're in the studio with an Audient console or on the road with iD14, you're always guaranteed the same world class Audient sound.
Developed by design legend David Dearden and optimised over 18 years of refinement, this mic pre is used by thousands of professional studios around the world. With its versatile nature and smooth tone, the iD14 will quickly become your 'go to' mic pre.
Pristine Converter Technology
iD14 provides you with high performance AD-DA converters from Burr Brown, the leaders in converter technology. 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
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.
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.
The Revolutionary 'ScrollControl'
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!
Console Style Monitor Control
It gets even better! 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, Audient have still included DIM, CUT, Polarity Reverse, Mono Sum, Talkback and Cue Mix monitoring, all of which can be assigned to the iD button.
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 ASP880.
Built To Last
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.

Aston Rycote Shockmount for Spirit and Origin Microphones
The Aston Rycote Custom is an InVision™ product which makes use of Rycote's patented vibration-resistant Lyre mount.
The Aston Rycote Custom's W-shaped Lyres are placed around a central mounting ring with a single fixing point specifically designed for the Aston Spirit and Origin microphones, allowing for incredibly quick and easy mounting.
Aston chose Rycote as their partner for shock mounts, because not only are they made in the UK, just like Aston mics, but they are indisputably the best mounts on the market today. The Aston Rycote Custom updates the concept of the microphone suspension for the 21st century, completely omitting any elasticated parts and using modern materials to create a virtually indestructible shock-mount with a performance that far outstrips that of the humble 'cat's cradle' suspension. In controlled tests at the Rycote factory, the Custom provided up to twice the isolation of traditional microphone suspension systems.
Finished in Aston colours this Custom mount makes the ideal accessory for use with the Origin and Spirit.
