Watch a comparison of Audient’s mic preamps throughout its entire range of consoles and audio interfaces

Audient claims to be the only company in the world to use the same console mic pre design throughout its product range. To showcase the level of quality that is guaranteed, whether using the large format ASP8024-HE console or its smallest audio interface, the iD4, Audient has decided to put together a little experiment.

The Audient console mic preamp has been found in products for over 20 years now, and the firm is proud to say that it has the same console mic pre in all of its current products.

To prove it, Audient decided to record sound examples using each of its products to allow you to experience the quality it has worked so hard to achieve from the smallest audio interface iD4, all the way up to our ASP8024 Heritage Edition Console. 

While no means a scientific test, it does give a good idea of the similarities between the different products.

Audient was founded in 1997 by David Dearden and Gareth Davies. They had previously been founding partners of DDA – a company best known for designing mixing consoles in the 1980s and 1990s. The first Audient console was hand built by David Dearden in a garage, word spread and we are still making them to this day. 

After seeing the massive success our analogue consoles and the David Dearden designed Audient Console mic pre we thought "why not take that mic pre design and put it in a desktop package?" So that's exactly what we did and our award winning rack mount mic pre's and audio interfaces, the 'iD range' was born and we're proud to say that our customers are getting a real piece of analogue heritage on their desktops.
