Good sound and a lot of features for the price - Sadly broke after 3.5 years.

I've been using the Audient ID22 for 3.5 years, all in my home studio. Sound is good both in and out and I like the interface. The converters are really good for the price. It has a lot of capabilities in form of in and outs, even though I haven't used half of them since I don't have the need.

Sadly the interface broke down 3.5 years into use. A hissing sounds has appeared an after some research this has happened to a lot of users about 4 years into use. The build inside the interface is not great and easily causes capacitators to melt. I wish Audient would've taken more care when building this interface.

The warranty has expired and I was referenced to ship it for repairs on the other side of the country, at my own expense. This would run me the cost of at least a half new ID22, with no guarantee that it will last. The uncertainty and lack of assurance from their support will lead me to look for a new interface. Shame.


Amazing Sound!

Spent a few weeks trying to look for a Pro sound card with really good AD/DA converters. And my Good Friend pointed me into the direction of Burr Brown converters. I use a TC finalizer express optical out going into the id22. and my mixes sound much brighter, have more punch, and the sound is crystal clear. Whatever sound goes in (AD) the "exact" sound comes back to you (DA) It really makes a huge difference. Im also going to use this for vinyl that i have restored to 24bit WAV files so I really wanted to find a sound card that can do this for me. And i found it. If you are thinking of getting this do yourself a favor and buy it, its a really great build and the sound and converters for the price are amazing. thanks thomann! and thanks audient!


Best interface in the mid-price segment
AdamMicinec 20.11.2020
This is seriously the best audio interface in the mid-price segment. Converters are top noch, mic preamps are great, DI input is great, the monitor controller is super handy and the software very easy to use.

- Outstanding converters and preamps
- DI input is great
- Handy monitor controller with pristine sound
- Software driver is easy to use
- Very good price
- Pretty high crosstalk on the headphone output - maybe thats just my unit
- I wish they put the DI input and Headphone output at the front of the unit
- no on/off button

I own much more expensive Orion Antelope as well and Audient ID22 converters are definitely in the same ligue. I'm seriosly thinking about upgrading to the bigger brother iD44.


The best?

Apparently this is one of the best interfaces on the market in the mid-price segment. I'm not the one to be able to say that, since I only use it for playing VSTs and listening through monitors and headphones.
I previously had an UR22 mkII. Seeing how other people described the sound quality, I frankly expected to hear something wow. It is an improvement, the sound is more spatial, but it's subtle.
I basically got this interface for better headphone sound quality, instead of buying a headphone amp. It powers the Sennheiser HD58x (similar to HD660s in requirements) without any problems, with power to spare.
The latency is excellent, I can use 32 buffer size without any problems on my weak desktop processor.
All in all, my experience with it is excellent, stable, great sound, very low latency. I would recommend it.
