The 24 in / 24 out EVO 16 features eight EVO preamps, advanced converter technology, and their lauded Smartgain feature.
Smartgain automatically sets the gain with the touch of a button and can be used on up to eight channels simultaneously, while the eight EVO preamps provide 58dB mic gain, to go with onboard converters boasting a staggering 121dB of dynamic range.
“Building on the success of EVO 4 and EVO 8, we wanted to super-size the EVO concept,” said marketing director, Andy Allen describing the new audio interface which is designed to fit either on the desktop or in a rack.
“EVO 16 offers the intuitive user experience, professional sound and technical quality you’d expect from parent company Audient, with plenty more I/O than its smaller counterparts. And yet it still fits firmly into the ‘affordable’ audio interface category.”
The interface offers a high resolution, full colour screen, while the ‘Motion’ UI provides a centralised, one-knob control system for adjusting all EVO 16’s hardware parameters.
The eight analogue inputs are all XLR/TRS sockets with the two on the front also accepting JFET inputs, while there are eight line outs on the rear and two independent headphone outs on the front.
Two optical ins and outs for either ADAT or S/PDIF signals can be seen on the rear panel, so users can add up to 16 extra channels of mic preamps or other gear.
The EVO Mixer software is compatible with MacOS and Windows to give further options to set up and route inputs and outputs, and provide ultra-low latency monitoring.
The solid steel chassis with non-slip rubber feet means EVO 16 can fit either on a desktop, under a laptop, or installed in a rack with its optional rack-ears.
