Engineer/Producer Tony Faulkner Enhances Mobile Recording Rig With New Audient iD44 (MKII)

One of the first owners of the company's recently released audio interface who specializes in orchestral recording adds it to his mobile setup, joined by a new Nero studio monitor controller.

Freelance sound engineer and producer Tony Faulkner is one of the first owners of an iD44 (MKII), Audient’s newest audio interface, having recently added it to his mobile recording setup.

Faulker, who has a long record of orchestral recording, initially employed the iD44 (MKII) in working with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal clarinet, John Bradbury, joined by pianist Ian Buckle. “Great. Premium sound quality,” he says of working with the new interface. “Being able to add an ASP880 for extra channels is very useful as is the talkback facility. Having four inputs means we can record ambisonics,” also citing the unit’s “ultra high quality” and “low latency” in particular.

He also points to the physical characteristics of the iD44 (MKII): “The two headphone sockets with individual volume controls are handy too,” with the unit offering both a 1/4-inch jack and a mini-jack so that three sets of headphones can be plugged into it simultaneously. “I’m used to dragging heavy rack cases. iD44 (MKII) is very compact for projects where I have to pack everything into a carry-on for a flight. It’s particularly compact considering everything the iD44 (MKII) can do. There’s no compromise on quality.”

Falkner also added an Audient Nero studio monitor controller at the same time, which he states has “better sound quality and more flexibility” compared to his previous setup. “It’s been excellent. Premium quality and very useful having multiple headphone outputs and inbuilt high quality DAC. Quite a few classical music producers like to monitor on headphones and the Nero makes this easy. It has better options for talkback too, including being able to plug in an external mic,” he concludes.
