The silver AudioFuse from Arturia is a 14 x 14 audio interface created for the discerning professional who requires the sound of a high-end analog console with the flexibility of a solid mobile interface. The AudioFuse was designed from the ground up utilizing DiscretePRO microphone preamps, which rely on a discrete component topology to achieve studio-quality performance. A temperature-compensated oscillator controls the reference clock to ensure jitter free analog-to-digital conversion and provide remarkable transparency at sampling rates up to 192 kHz. There are no menus to dive through as every function is a single layer with dedicated knob and button controls.
Inputs 1 and 2 feature combo XLR/TRS 1/4" connectors for mic pres, line inputs, and instrument inputs. Inputs 3 and 4 share a set of stereo 1/4" connectors with a stereo RCA RIAA phono preamp with ground for connecting a turntable. Speaker output A and B offer two sets of stereo 1/4" outputs for connecting two sets of monitors, while the two dedicated headphone outputs feature independent volume control and offer both 1/4" and 1/8" jacks. The digital ADAT lightpipe ports add an additional eight channels of input and output, while two coaxial connectors offer S/PDIF and wordclock I/O.
Connect any hardware MIDI device with the included MIDI cable adapters, or use the USB hub to connect controllers and other devices. The dedicated micro-USB port offers connections to your computer, tablet, or phone. The AudioFuse offers 3 ms round trip latency into and out of your computer, while the direct monitoring function allows for the blending of a recorded track with the direct signal for true zero latency performance. The built-in talkback microphone allows communication from the control room to musicians in a remote studio. The output control section controls output level with VU meters, audio mix selection, mono mode, output dimming, mute, and speaker A/B selection.
