Audient Mico Reviews4.5/5.0 based on 7 customer reviews
There is no other box at this price point that gives you high-quality mic pres that you can dial in for phase coherency when using multiple mics on one source, and gives you quality A/D coverters to boot. A great way to add two more channels to any interface with a S/PDIF or AES input.

Supa Clean!!!I have had this unit for 3 years now and recorded tons of 12 string acoustic, violin, vocals and even bass. The unit dose a great job giving you what you put in is what you get out, sound is very clean and ad conversion is on the level with stand alone ad converters which is amazing at this price point. If you want color too your sound it has harmonic sculpting the HMX knob so add as much or little that you want.....go Audient!!!!

Audient MicoFantastic in applications that involve uncolored preamplification and AD conversion. I use it as a way to bypass interface converters when recording on location and when paired with earthworks-type microphone pairs for drum overheads, and piano stereo pairs, the transparency cannot be beat. Fantastic box.

Very high quality, and great "bang for the buck"!!I actually did a shoot-out in my studio with the Mico and the Grace m101. Honestly, running both devices in "vanilla" mode (not utilizing any of the coloration features) I could honestly not tell the difference between the 2.
For about $100 more, with Mico you get TWO amazingly clean & transparent pre's, plus built-in AD 96Khz), Word Clock, and digital outputs. Plus a lot more high-pass filtering options than the m101.
For me, it was a no-brained which one to buy!!

AmazingI was using a Presonus Digimax FS preamps via adat into my M-Audio ProjectMix I/0. The Digimax really cleaned up the sound of the ProjectMix. Stepping up to the Audient Mico really opened up the sound of my microphones. It has more gain, great digital conversion and I don't think anything can touch it at this price point. I love this box!

First one died after 3 daysIt sounds good, but the first one died after 3 days (actually after 30 mins of actual use) right before a session. Sweetwater did get me one in the mail right away...5 stars for that!!! The replacement is working fine and does sound good, but hey that first impression is hard to forget. Would I recommend it to someone else...Yeah It sounds good (not punchy, kinda smooth, fairly neutral on the A channel with the HMX off...it can get real dirty with it on. Overall Pretty Good, not Great.
