Amazing interface, great upgrade

I've been using a FR Scarlett for a few years and always heard how Audient preamps and AD/DC were "better". Now that I have used the ID44 for a few days A/B tested with my 18i8 I can tell you the ID44 is definitely a step up (of course I was able to do great music with my 18i8 but the ID44 just gets you closer to a nicer/more polished sound without having to do much in post).

Pros:

- great preamps

- great DIs

- very nice DA/AC conversion

- better (smaller) latency

- very nice headphone amps (enough to power my 250ohm dt880s)

Cons:

- I would have liked this unit had a midi port (as I have a couple of older e. pianos which do not support USB midi)

Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. Service from Thomann great as always!
