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.
We understand the need to keep things simple and iD14’s mixer app was designed with that in mind.

Wherever your mouse pointer hovers, the iD knob can scroll to control!
Top Customer Reviews
Audient has been very responsive to this issue. Suggesting that it was most likely an issue with the power supply section of the iD14. They have told me that if Instrumentpro balks at a refund or exchange by using the excuse that the plastic bags containing cables have been opened, therefore, not considered to be in the original packaging, to reach out to them and they will make it right.
The attached photo shows the unit with my laptop. It was part of the due diligence troubleshooting process to see if the problem was repeatable. After downloading the drivers, the iD14 was plugged into my laptop with the enclosed USB cable. As you can see, all the lights on the meter were illuminated, but not the green status light. That indicated a problem with the unit itself...tech support suggests that it is likely the internal power supply
Big complaint is that drivers for Windows 10 are not nearly as good as the Focusrite. Despite keeping the same sample rate, sample count etc, I get significantly more artifacts and overruns using the same DAW, same project etc. It's worth it for the quality, but it's quite annoying. It also makes recording anything at the "minimum" latency mode practically impossible, because there are too many artifacts (and this is with a relatively modern desktop Haswell i5 with Reaper). The UI for configuring the driver and mixes and such seems awfully powerful, but also took me quite a while to figure out how to configure it how I like. Also the driver seemingly randomly will flip back to 44.1khz away from the 96khz rate I set it to. It's easy to enough to set back, but it's an annoyance.
So far I've been very happy with the iD14. Lower noise floor than the Scarlett and the line-level inputs makes it easier to use an external mic pre. I don't record in a way that I have to deal with latency so I can't comment on that. But the sound quality is a decent step up.
I can't say this would be ideal in a high-track-count recording, but for 8ish tracks it layers pretty well. The sound stage holds up. It's convenient. Solid build.
The preamps sound very clear to me. For the volume levels I normally record at there's no noise. One time I tried a ribbon mic, which has a weaker signal, cranked the preamp all the way up and used the extra 10db in the software and there was some noise there, though not a ton. In short, I'm very satisfied with the sound coming out of my computer as I play back my recordings. There's a big improvement over what I was getting before. The clarity is just wonderful. I have heard great things about the D.I, but I don't use it. I have an Avid Eleven Rack which I use for my guitar, and I run that through the optical input (S/PDIF) of the iD14.
The unit is solidly built. I like the metal construction. The knobs are easy to use. I haven't found much of a use for the scroll ID thing, and I don't really care to have the iD14 that close to my keyboard anyway because of all the wires coming out of it. But I do like to use the big knob for headphone/speaker volume control. I think the software is fine. I haven't used much other interface software, so I don't have a lot to compare it to.
I titled this review as such because I don't think this interface is very well known. I stumbled upon it after doing research into a bunch of other brands and models. And at this price? I was willing to pay nearly twice as much for a used RME Babyface, which I think is comparable. I'm still blown away by the value of this thing. I try to buy most of my gear used, but the iD14 is new enough that there weren't any used ones available that would have saved me a significant amount of money. It didn't even bother me, because it's still a great value.
