Audient ID4 mk1 vs mk2 vs Evo 4
I´ve got some luck this week, money back from my energy company (it is always the other way around...) and also from the government, children after school care was closed because of Covid a long time ago, and they paid me back extra, because of a wrong calculation earlier.
So I wondered about getting an new small audio interface. I have narrowed my choice to Audient ID4 or Evo 4. But I have a few questions:
The ID4, does it really brings the volume to zero when the Ipad goes to sleep? My Ipad is corporate modified, and when a few minutes it is not touched it goes to sleep and I need to enter a 6 digit code. When I open AUM or other audio apps this doesn´t happen, but if every time my Ipad goes to sleep, I have to enter the code, and then also bring back the volume with the big knob, I go crazy
Second question, I am mostly interested in the JFET guitar input, I can buy a mk1 for 70 euro at a local pawn shop. From what I have read the mk2 is not any better when it comes to the guitar input. Is a mk1 still a good buy, or is it not so good compared to mk2 (128 euro new).
Last one, the Evo 4, does this one also have the habbit the volume goes to zero when Ipad goes to sleep? From what I have read is uses the same JFET guitar input.
If Audient really has these quirks, I think I go for Tascam 1x2hr, nothing special but has an extra usb port to power it with a powerbank. That is a nice feature to make the interface portable.
Any knowledge here? Thanks in advance.
