Advanced Converter Technology Clearer, sharper clarity

Providing a MASSIVE 121dB of dynamic range, EVO 16’s high performance converter technology makes sure you hear your audio accurately, helping you make creative decisions confidently, identify issues and improve your recording and mixing game.

Introducing Motion UI, A an audio interface UI created by EVO by Audient

The Motion user interface (UI) has been designed to change the way you interact with your audio interface. For the first time, a stunning high resolution, full colour LCD screen intelligently displays information as you need it, transforming EVO 16 into a fully immersive, easy to use experience.

The Screen

Every adjustment, every detail, every button press is beautifully displayed in real-time on a 240X240 TFT backlit LCD Screen, letting you navigate hardware features effortlessly, make changes on the fly and take full control of your recording session without ever looking at your computer.

Channel Status

Pressing an input or output button momentarily displays the channel name, the levels and the functions activated for that specific channel. All the information you ever need in one place.

Metering

Keep an eye on your levels by quickly cycling through your inputs and outputs with EVO 16’s crystal clear, full colour metering.

One Knob Control

Designed to keep your session in motion, One-Knob-Control lets you glide through EVO 16’s hardware features from a single centralised point. Unlimited power, simple control.

Function Button

Thanks to the customisable F-button, you can assign any of EVO 16’s advanced monitoring controls to the programmable function button. Your workflow, just the way you like it.

Pick The Best Route

Connect and listen to your mixes through multiple sets of speakers with EVO 16’s eight line outputs. Alternatively use the extra line outputs to send audio to external outboard gear, such as compressors or FX units, or to headphone amps for distribution to your artists.

Clarity where you need it most

Drive even the most demanding headphones with EVO 16’s two dedicated headphone amps. Easily power headphones up to 600 Ohms all while experiencing detailed monitoring and playback as well as plenty of volume.

Classic tone, modern sound

To build a monster guitar sound you need the right foundation. Our harmonically rich JFET instrument input circuit is designed to replicate the input stage of a classic valve amplifier, providing an ideal sonic foundation before you hit your guitar sims.

Digital I/O Room For Expansion

Future proof your studio and configure your setup to tackle bigger sessions. Whether you’re recording drums or taking on a full band, EVO 16’s optical inputs and outputs have got you covered. Supporting both ADAT and SPDIF, add up to 16 channels of mic preamps to your setup, giving you plenty of options for expanding your studio down the line. Pairs great with any external mic preamp

Advanced Monitor Control For the keen listener

EVO 16 takes critical listening seriously and is packed full of monitoring functionality to back it up. Whether you are switching between two sets of speakers using the ALT monitor feature, checking your mix in Mono or quickly communicating with your artist using Talkback – all features can be activated straight from EVO 16’s front panel. The best part is you get to customise which control is assigned to the hardware F-button.

Talkback Communication is key

EVO 16’s dedicated talkback technology lets you use any audio source connected to your computer such as a built-in or USB microphone as your talkback mic, freeing up valuable mic preamps for recording.

Ultra-fast USB Speed meets reliability

In the studio, every second counts – and with rock solid driver performance, high-speed USB connection, and ultra low latency monitoring, EVO 16 will always deliver the reliability needed to keep up with your creativity.

For content creators Audio Loop-back

In the world of content, your audio needs to not only sound great but be easy to control. Audio Loop-back makes this possible. Ideal for content creators, podcasters and streamers.

The Mixer Powerful control

Engineered to simplify your workflow, the EVO Mixer enables you to effortlessly set up and route your inputs + outputs, provide ultra-low latency monitoring, set up dedicated artist headphone mixes and so much more.

Portable Stacked or Racked

Although packed full of features, EVO 16 defies the normal with its deceptively small form factor. At just over 14” wide with non-slip rubber feet, EVO 16 works perfectly whether on your desktop, under your laptop or as a permanent fixture to your studio with optional rack ears.

Environmentally Friendly

In order to minimise our environmental impact, EVO 16’s detachable rack ears will be available as a free optional extra, reducing required raw materials, shipping volumes, and thus our carbon footprint. We have also taken great steps to ensure EVO 16’s packaging utilises recycled materials whilst ensuring what little plastics we use are recyclable.
