As musicians, the folks at Arturia invest a lot of time and energy into their sound, and AudioFuse treats it with the respect it deserves. Once you've heard your sound through AudioFuse, nothing will ever compare.
To maintain total control over the performance of each component in the AudioFuse, Arturia designed their own microphone preamps. Inspired by the classic designs of the golden age of analog, they used cutting edge technology to enhance the latest generation of discrete components. One listen and you'll never look back.
PROFESSIONAL CONVERTERS, RELIABLE CLOCK
While preamps are critical, the resulting analog signal has to be converted to the digital world for your computer, tablet, or phone. To attain this, they chose the AKM® premium series converters, known for their outstanding quality. Another factor that distinguishes between budget and high-end digitizing is timing accuracy. That's why we built the reference clock on an exceedingly accurate, fully temperature-compensated oscillator with outstanding 20ppm stability. They even paired it to a sophisticated clock recovery and jitter elimination system to ensure that you get the pristine sound you demand, whatever the conditions.
It’s a well-known fact that the quality of an audio chain is never stronger than its weakest link. That's why AudioFuse is built with obsessive attention to detail at every stage, including a fully symmetrical and nearly capacitor-free input stages. Unlike most interfaces on the market, there isnt a compromise in audio quality by combining preamp and line in with an attenuator—they're separate signal paths. There's no breakout cable to degrade signal either—all connections are solidly onboard. Next-generation analog/digital converters deliver audio with startling transparency at sampling rates up to 192kHz. Even the potentiometers are custom built to Arturia's exacting specs. Sound serious? It is.
AudioFuse gives you exceptionally high quality analog inputs that capture every nuanced detail. In addition to line-level signals, the two XLR combo-jack inputs on the front let you record high impedance instruments like electric guitars and basses, as well as your microphones. AudioFuse can take anything you throw at it, and reveal every subtlety. Do you need more? The ¼” TRS jacks and RIAA, grounded phono RCA inputs let you add two line level instruments or a turntable for recording or scratching your vinyl LPs.
AudioFuse is the master of the digital realm. Beyond its main Plug & Play USB connection letting you connect AudioFuse to your computer, tablet or phone, you will find optical or coaxial S/PDIF I/O to link it with your HIFI devices. You can use AudioFuse together with other ADAT-enabled equipment to give your inputs and outputs a boost, too. Easily bank up an extra set of mic pre-amps and record a whole band at once. AudioFuse also features innovative, space-saving breakout MIDI connections, opening up a whole new world of exciting sounds, outboard synths, and sound modules to your setup.
To get the best idea of how your music truly sounds, you'll often need to compare multiple sets of reference monitors and speakers. AudioFuse features 2 sets of line outputs so you can quickly, efficiently send your mix to different monitoring systems to make sure your mix translates well. The amazing output options don't stop there, AudioFuse has two separate headphone ouputs with both 6.3mm and 3.5mm so you'll never have to hunt for adapters again. These outputs can also be put to great use on stage, but also for advanced techniques in the studio, too. The huge reamping possibilities of AudioFuse are truly inspiring, letting you track your dry signal while simultaneously sending it - impedance corrected - to a guitar amp for recording.
Potential, effectiveness, and convenience all play a part in how your musical project will progress. AudioFuse gives you all the tools you need to make the most of any situation. For example, processing your sounds through outboard effects units, pedals or modules is quick and easy when you have two insert connections. Connecting your USB controllers or dongles without running out of USB slots on your computer simply isn't a problem anymore thanks to its built-in USB hub. You also want to directly control vintage synths or drum machines? MIDI IO at your service! Last but not least, the word clock IO will ensure that all of your equipment stays perfectly in sync.
