Nothing can touch it at this price!
synthesist, 14.05.2020
I use it on Windows 10 PC with i7 processor and 8GB RAM. My DAW is Reaper.
The driver is rock-solid. I have another interface installed (old Focusrite Saffire Pro 40) and I keep switching between the two without a single glitch. It doesn't have the lowest latency and I think that it could be better in this regard, but still it is not bad.
The sofware mixer/router that comes with it is elegant and clear.
The hardware is robust and looks very nice, but I don't like the hollow sound when you press the buttons. A minor thing though.
Soundwise it is stellar. I've been using TC Electronic BMC-2 as my monitor controller / DA converter and loved it, but iD44 DA sounds better. It has a bit wider and deeper soundstage and the upper mids are clearer with much less smear if any. Very, very impressive at this price!
The headphone output is also very clean, but I'd like to see more power. It's still sufficiently loud for most jobs.
The preamps are the clean, hi-fi Audient pres. Nothing to dislike about them. I'll actually be happy doing location recording of acoustic performances with these preamps, although I have Neve preamps in my studio.
The monitoring features are great, but it would be nice to have a stored reference level which would be recalled with a push of the big knob (the push currently has no function).
Maybe this machine hasn't reached its full potential, yet, but it's already really good.

Amazing interface, great upgrade
JavierCarrillo, 02.08.2019
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!

High quality and well equipped audio interface
daniel.vinklar, 22.04.2020
I returned the new SSL 2+ interface which was high quality and very nice, but I realised I really needed 4 physical audio inputs. So the ID44 has that and much more. It has high quality 4 audio inputs with very high quality and clean preamps, but it also has an additional 20 digital channels on digital input and output. This is an awesome and futureproof card if my ambitions should extend. It has two independent headphone output with own volume pots, which is also something I needed for when I am recording with my wife. So I am running a pair of microphones into the first two channels, one of them is a condenser, so I am really happy the card has independent phantom power per each channel, and the other two channels I am running the output of my Octatrack (synths and loops)... Very high-quality product, high-quality audio, conversion etc. Also, the mixer app which comes with it is very nice, simple yet powerful. I am satisfied with this product.

twinsishere, 20.05.2021
I have been using this interface in my studio for a while now. I am very pleased with it, the preamps are very transparent and provide a good amount of gain.
Drivers for windows are rock solid. I use it with Studio One 5, and most of the times i'm tracking vocals while monitoring through the software. I'm able to get very low latencies with great stability.
Every control for the preamps is hardware: knob for gain, switches for phantom, hi-pass. This might seem less important, but for me it is very handy when tracking! The first few takes I keep reaching the gain knob with my hand to adjust it to the performance.
