Portable, great reproduction, great price
Steve Galloway, 09.07.2020
Evo 4 is a reliable device that does a big job with little need for attention, so much so that it is easy to forget the device is there.

Audient recently enhanced user functions with the release of Windows and Mac desktop clients for managing Evo 4 via a keyboard/mouse. The value added software utility includes an additional desktop interface for managing loopback recording. With the release of this software utility the unit's overall accessibility, especially to non-tech users, is greatly improved.

I am producing some classical musicians in a large church right now with 5 mics which I am covering with Evo4 and a Zoom H5 as preamps. Evo 4 is portable, the unit is ready for use as soon as your computer is "up", and being able to run two mics on smartgain meant I could forget those mics and focus on issues that need constant attention when dealing with live performers.

A few reviews have mentioned that levels are not stored in Evo 4 memory between re-boots, and while I understand the seeming inconvenience, it takes little time to find a mic level with smartgain, and for work that needs intensive gain control these kinds of levels need constant attention whatever device you use.

Other reviews have also mentioned that monitors are deactivated while headphones are plugged in. As long as you know your choices when you buy, I do not see the problem at this price point.

Device efficiency saves time in live situations. For vloggers, gamers, and podcasters, Evo 4 is low maintenance. For professionals Evo 4 gives hands-free utility to permit increased scope of work. Audio quality is well above its price level, and yes, it CAN run a Shure SM7b, although I still slot a Cloudflifter into my soundchain. I would would trade up for the Evo8. I cannot think of a reason why even a pro would not be happy to have one in inventory.

If Audient offered a version upgrade which came in a hardened case I would pay the difference for the extra duability when I am on the road with it. Not everyone needs that though.

Great machine.

Best audio interface on this price range
Petbank, 06.08.2020
Evo 4 is the best audio interface for this price range. It is small, slick, well built, easy to use, very intuitive and the smart gain works like magic. The best acquisition for your home studio.

Compact and really convenient
Toon C, 06.05.2020
I have this interface for a month now, and it's really great.

The LEDs around the dial are my favorite. When you turn the knob, it shows the selected gain, and if you don't touch it it shows the volume of the selected input/ouput. And the dial works also great to configure the monitor mix.

I haven't used the Smart Gain that much, but the input buttons also light up red when they clip, so that also helps to set the gain correctly.

So even with 1 dial you have a lot of control.

I like you can mute the inputs, but the "hold to mute/unmute" is a bit cumbersome if you want to switch it on/off quickly.

I'm using this interface with GNU/Linux, even though it's not officially supported, it works mostly out-of-the-box.

It has a nice form factor, and with the inputs on the back, it stands nicely on my desk.

I would definitely recommend this to any beginner, it's a great piece of hardware.
