Audient

British audio brand Audient has announced EVO which they say is "a new benchmark in audio interfaces" that "delivers a new level of user experience with one focus: to make recording easy".

EVO launches at NAMM 2020 where visitors to the Audient booth #10102 can get their hands on the 2 in / 2 out audio interface EVO 4 - and find out more about EVO 8 which will be available soon after.

With the rise in podcasting, streaming and gaming, alongside the continuing rapid expansion of home recording, the EVO concept is designed to address the affordable audio interface market with a new range that offers an intuitive user experience, with application-specific features and "stunning aesthetics" - all whilst retaining the professional sound and technical quality expected from Audient.

Marketing director, Andy Allen explains Audient's thinking:

We believe technology shouldn't get in the way of the creative process; it should enhance it and be accessible to all, no matter what their skill-level or art-form and EVO is here to help make great-sounding recordings as easy and effortless as possible.

One of EVO's most unique features is Smartgain which automatically sets the gain levels when the user starts playing or singing. This is perfect for anyone who wants to focus on being creative, or perhaps is just starting out. Of course pros can still dial in the gain manually, if they choose - as well as benefiting from other features they'd expect from a professional audio interface.

The EVO range provides high performance, all new EVO mic preamps with 58dB gain range, class-leading converters with a 113dB dynamic range alongside a JFET D.I, Smartgain, Smart Touchpoints, speaker/headphone outputs, ultra-low latency, monitor mix and loopback functionality.

EVO 4 is scheduled to ship early in the first quarter of 2020 (location dependent) and will retail at £99.99 inc VAT, €119 inc local VAT and US $129 MAP. Pricing and delivery details for EVO 8 will follow hot on the heels of EVO 4.
