Audient iD22 USB Audio Interface and Monitoring System
The Audient iD22 will transform your DAW into a world-class recording system by connecting directly to your microphones, computer and monitors. iD22 is now compatible with Windows systems.
iD22 provides two classic Audient microphone preamplifiers, ALL NEW pristine AD/DA convertors that have been designed to deliver impeccable detail and impressive depth during both tracking & mixing. iD22 is expandable via ADAT i/o - perfect for partnering with an ASP880 for 10-ch recording [total 10-in, 12-out + headphones]. The console-style monitor controller functionality and USB2.0 connectivity complete this ergonomic desktop package.
The iD22 has two very high quality low-noise class-A pre-amps (as you would expect from a company renowned for its microphone preamps and analogue mixers), with switchable phantom power, 10dB pad, phase inversion, and high pass filters, plus balanced insert points. Channel two also has an alternative high impedance input to accept signals from low level instrument sources like guitar or bass. The inputs are then fed into high-performance 24-bit/96kHz converters, and can be flexibly routed using the integrated DSP mixer.
There are 6 analogue outputs in total: a pair of main outputs, an alternative stereo line output and a separate stereo headphone bus that feeds a studio-grade high current headphone amplifier.
The various outputs, in conjunction with the main volume control, dedicated dim and cut buttons, and User Programmable Function Keys, mean the iD22 can be configured to act as a monitor switcher and controller – simply plug your main monitors from outputs 1 and 2, a second monitoring system from outputs 3 and 4, and headphones from the headphone output, for complete control over your listening environment.
The assignable function buttons are the icing on the cake here, they can be configured to control output selection with programmable alt output level, MONO sum, polarity reverse and talkback. Alternatively, you can use the various outputs to give performers separate mixes whilst tracking. This flexibility means the iD22 will always be able to cope with the way you want to work, configured with a simple routing matrix accessed through the DSP control panel.

Aston Spirit Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone
The Aston Spirit is a high-performance, switchable pattern, microphone utilising a 1 inch gold evaporated capsule.
The Spirit is designed to deliver a beautifully open sound with sparkling harmonics. This highly accurate micro- phone gives a stunningly natural and transparent recording, capturing all the detail in the high range but without adding the harshness that some condenser microphones seem to.
A switch on the mic body selects from Omni, Cardioid or Figure-of-Eight polar patterns. It is versatile enough to use with most instruments and excels on acoustic guitar and vocals. Its hand-selected capsule is teamed with high-end transformer balanced circuitry using only the best components such as WIMA capacitors, the same devices you'll find in boutique microphones costing far more than the Spirit.
