USB-C Desktop Audio Interface with +71dB Preamps and Bluetooth
The surprisingly robust desktop-format Arturia AudioFuse Studio USB-C audio interface is equipped to be the centerpiece of your entire studio — that, and a powerful mobile interface for capturing live audio on the go. On deck are four high-spec Discrete Pro mic preamps with +71dB of clean gain to drive even your most power-hungry ribbon mics and studio dynamics with virtually zero added noise. A total of eight TRS line-ins and an additional 8 channels of I/O over ADAT optical give you plenty of room for connectivity to mixers, summing boxes, and outboard pres. Factor in class-leading conversion and clocking with 129dBu of EIN and 119dB of dynamic range, and this potent interface is all you need to capture modern bands to string quartets at home and on location. Even so, the AudioFuse Studio’s design remains future-forward at every turn. USB-C protocol yields a rock-solid connection and lightning-fast round trip latency. And two independent headphone outs, along with two sets of speaker outs, make the AudioFuse Studio the perfect tool for collaborating and critical monitoring. There’s even an onboard audio-grade Bluetooth receiver for streaming tracks directly into your session. It all ships with Arturia’s Creative Suite software pack, which offers some significant sound-shaping and music-making options.
Discrete Pro mic pres with +71dB of gain
Ever try to drive a low-output dynamic mic or, heaven forbid, a ribbon mic with your current audio interface? By the time you boost the signal up to a suitable level, the track is just screaming with additional noise. Not so with the AudioFuse Studio’s Discrete Pro microphone preamps. Their impressive +71dB gain range equips you for the quietest sources and most intimate performances, condensers to ribbons, with virtually no added noise, even at max level.
Your new home and mobile front end
Whether you’re mixing songs at home or tracking on the road, the AudioFuse Studio has you covered for any challenges you’re likely to encounter. Connect two 8-channel mic preamps, and you’re ready to track full bands live. Pop it in a backpack, and you can take advantage of the Discrete Pro mic pres to capture wind symphonies in concert and dialog on location. There are even pre-conversion inserts and line inputs for outboard gear. It’s all delivered in HDR 192kHz conversion straight to your laptop over rock-solid USB-C.
Includes the AudioFuse Creative Suite
Adding serious value to the AudioFuse Studio is Arturia’s included AudioFuse Creative Suite. For the last 20 years, Arturia has been creating impressive software emulations that are used by producers around the world. The 3 Preamps bundle is your ticket to component-correct vintage analog coloration and sweetening on any recorded source — beefy bass drums to sparkling acoustic guitars and perfectly present vocals. A lite version of the Arturia’s Analog Lab nets you a comprehensive collection of sought-after synth sounds, made all the sweeter by the Mini Filter’s Moog-ish ladder filtering and step sequencing. You also get sweet digitization of a prized analog delay and a vibey 76-type compressor to make drums and bass come alive.
