Balanced Inserts

Two fully balanced insert points enable you to integrate your outboard gear prior to conversion, letting you quickly insert your favourite compressors, vintage mic pres or EQs. The insert return also gives you direct access to the analogue to digital converters – providing the cleanest signal path possible, making it great for print-backs or integrating outboard analogue line level sources. Whether you’re creating vocal chains or processing stems iD44 gives you the flexibility you need.

Console Style Monitor Control

The Power of Simplicity

Taking inspiration from our heritage in analogue console design, iD44 features a range of flexible monitor control functions including dedicated talkback, cut and dim buttons along with polarity, mono, speaker select and cue mix monitoring.

All monitoring functions can be assigned to three programmable function buttons. No more time spent searching for software controlled features or scrolling through menus, just assign the monitoring functions you need and quickly take control of your session. Real hardware control at your fingertips.

Intuitive software

Software you can rely on

iD44’s all new mix focused software the iD Mixer has been designed with simplicity and elegance in mind. Create up to four stereo artist cue mixes, name and customise channels, save layout presets, assign hardware function buttons, quickly setup advanced routing, use presets in standalone mode and more. Tightly integrating hardware and software, the iD Mixer makes the recording process easy giving you total control and reliability where you need it most.

Talkback

Communication is Key

iD44’s new dedicated talkback technology enables you to utilize any audio source connected to your computer such as a built in or USB microphone as your talkback mic, freeing up valuable mic pres while offering an effective talkback solution no matter where you are..

Use your computers built in mic for talkback

ScrollControl

Hardware for your software

With a touch of a button iD44’s volume encoder becomes a virtual scroll wheel, enabling you to take control of your DAW, plug-in parameters and more – just like you’re adjusting a piece of hardware. Quickly dial in settings, adjust faders or even write in automation without spending hours staring at a screen.

USB Connection

iD44 comes with both a standard USB cable and a USB Type-C cable enabling you to connect to any USB compatible Mac or PC supporting USB 2.0 or above.
