Podcasters, musicians, producers, and content creators can benefit from the Audient EVO 8 Desktop 4x4 USB Type-C Audio Interface , a desktop 4x4 USB audio interface that makes capturing high-quality audio effortless. It features four warm EVO mic preamps, a JFET Hi-Z input for instruments, and Smartgain automatic gain control. Plus, its four 1/4" line outputs and two headphone outs are perfect for hooking up multiple sets of speakers and headphones.

The EVO 8's large knob provides convenient control of levels for your monitors, headphones, and channels while the multifunction buttons enable easy muting of the inputs and headphone outs. The audio loopback function makes it possible to record computer audio at the same time as the inputs—a welcome feature for podcasters who need to capture remote guests via Skype or other VoIP apps.

DAW software, virtual instruments, samples, cabinet simulation, and more are included to get you started on your path toward achieving polished productions. Because the unit is bus-powered, you can power it straight from your computer; you never need to worry about accidentally forgetting or unplugging a power supply. It includes two USB cables (USB Type-C and USB Type-A) to allow proper connection to virtually any computer.

Key Features:

High-Quality Audio Performance

Building on Audient's 20+ years of audio design experience, the EVO 8 gives you premium audio quality—58 dB gain range, -128 dB mic pre EIN, and 113 dB dynamic range—on your desktop; something that benefits content creators, producers, and instrumentalists in home studios or on the go.

4-Channel Input Section

Record panel podcasts or several musicians through the warm, accurate EVO preamps and high-performance AKM convertors. The EVO 8 features four XLR-1/4" combo mic/line inputs and a 1/4" Hi-Z JFET instrument input to handle a variety of sources from dynamic and condenser mics to electric guitars and outboard preamps.

Dual Headphone Outs and Four Line Outputs

With four balanced 1/4" line outputs and two 1/4" headphone outputs, the EVO 8 can act as the central hub for multiple sets of speakers and headphones. Plus, the touch points and large rotary control provide intuitive access to volume adjustments for the outputs.


Connecting a set of headphones to either of the headphone ports will automatically mute the corresponding speaker outputs, making switching between loudspeaker monitoring and headphone monitoring quick and seamless.

Smartgain Mode

Make sure you capture everything perfectly with Smartgain mode. Start playing or singing and Smartgain mode will automatically set the level of your microphones. You can even perfectly match and adjust gain to two channels simultaneously.

Work Anywhere

All of EVO 8's advanced features are powered directly from your computer via USB, letting you start recording on the go, whenever inspiration strikes.

Audio Loopback

Audio loopback enables you to record your computer audio at the same time as your microphones, making it ideal for podcasters and streamers.

  • Record your computer's audio
  • Record guest Skype/video calls
  • Record gaming audio
Powerful Control
  • Smart Touchpoints: Control your speakers, headphones, and channels all using the volume encoder.
  • Monitor Mix: Leave latency behind. Blend between your inputs and DAW playback to reduce latency when recording.
  • Monitor Pan: Pan your inputs and DAW playback left or right and create the perfect headphone balance for recording.
  • Switchable Phantom Power: Individually switch 48V phantom power on/off for each channel and give your microphones the power they need.
  • Multifunction Buttons: Channels 1-4 and both volume buttons can quickly be muted by simply holding them down until they begin to flash.
  • Software Control: Set the gain of your mic pres using your DAW (with compatible software), your settings will also be stored in your session.
Mac and Windows Compatibility

The EVO 8 audio interface is fully compatible with Mac and Windows computers. It includes two USB cables to ensure proper connectivity with USB Type-C and USB Type-A ports. When connected to a USB Type-A port, the EVO 8 can provide phantom power for two channels at the same time. If the EVO 8 is connected to a USB Type-C port that can provide 1.5A of current, then you can use phantom power on all four channels simultaneously.
