Highly sought-after mastering engineer, Katie Tavini was the lucky winner of a USB audio interface, iD22 in our giveaway last month. As it happened, the arrival of her prize was very timely; she had to record some audio for the Working Class Audio podcast and her usual interface had been playing up.
“…it doesn’t take up any of my rack space, it just sits right in the middle of my desk looking awesome.”
“I just plugged in the iD22 and had instant sound! It was so easy to use, and so many people have now listened to the podcast and commented on how good the audio sounds! Which is amazing!”
It’s only been a couple of weeks, but her iD22 has already become indispensable, as Katie attests: “It’s so good that it’s now completely replaced my other interface. It’s way more user friendly, easy to use, and the best part is that it doesn’t take up any of my rack space, it just sits right in the middle of my desk looking awesome.
“Also, the converters sound much nicer than my other interface. Don’t ask me why – they just do.”
When she’s not smashing it as a mastering engineer, Katie is an active champion of women in the audio industry, most recently taking part in Red Bull Studios’ #NormalNotNovelty workshops for aspiring female producers, DJs and sound engineers at any level.
We asked her what she loves about her Audient iD22. “The volume knob is possibly my favourite part, I’ve been without one for so long since I got rid of my mixing console. Even if I’m mastering a project entirely ITB (rare but it happens) it makes my workflow feel more analogue. Hard to explain, but there’s something so satisfying about having a huge volume knob!
“Also, the converters sound much nicer than my other interface. Don’t ask me why – they just do. Can’t argue with that. So thank you so much for my interface, I super love it!”
