Bad news: I haven’t yet figured out how to make a Windows computer think of an Audient iD14 USB audio interface as a “speaker” and send sound from the computer to the iD14’s headphone jack.
At the very least, on Windows, I think it requires messing with the iD14’s configuration through the special software downloadable from Audient.
I’m definitely starting to give up hope that it’d be possible with the iD14 and an iOS / Android device, since there’s no such software for advanced control of the hardware available on these operating systems. You might need a simpler, cheaper USB interface for such needs!
I really want to be wrong, though, since the iD14 is known for digitizing analog sound quite nicely, and since it has ports for higher-quality analog cabling like XLR than many simple interfaces do.
You can definitely “monitor” anything coming through your input ports on an iD14 using the iD14’s headphone jack while you track.
I just still haven’t figured out how to use the same headphones to listen to the playback of whatever recording you just made.
