Audient ID14 MKII

Hi, does anyone have this interface working on linux? Is it advisable?

It’s class compliant which means that on MacOS and on Linux you won’t need a driver - should work nicely. But have a look at the LinuxMusicians forum as well since this question is a more general one, not Ardour-related. See this thread for instance…
Hope that helps,
and cheers,

Thanks. It seems a pretty nice audio interface, but I don’t like the lack of an actual hardware knob for adjusting the monitor blend. For windows users might be ok with the Audient software, but on Linux that would be a problem.

For now, I’m more for the SSL 2 or the MOTU M2 or M4. I want an upgrade from my old trusty MAudio FTPro. Better preamps and converters and the like.

I can vouch for the Behringer U-Phoria UMC1820 in Ardour on Linux, it works perfectly, has the hardware monitoring balance control you mention, the mic preamps sound fantastic; I can’t find fault with it.

Behringer has had a reputation for being “a bit cheap” at times but this interface is great.

There are smaller versions with fewer inputs that might suit you better, UMC204HD I think, which still do hardware monitoring. I might get one myself for recording out and about :slight_smile:

I use the U-Phoria UMC404HD, and I bought it specifically because I’d be working on Linux, and wanted more hardware controls than some other interfaces have. It’s honesty been fantastic, I was nervous going for a Behringer, but I’ve been using it for about 5 months now and I’m stoked with how well it performs and how good recordings sound coming through it.
