Arturia AudioFuse 8Pre

Arturia AudioFuse 8Pre audio interface can work in two ways. On the one hand it is an audio interface with 8 channels of high-quality DiscretePRO analog inputs, 8 channels of ADAT input, discrete line outputs, insert points, headphone and monitor control, and USB-C connectivity. A device that offers you 16 inputs and 20 outputs, without sacrificing quality at any point in the signal path.

But if you already have an ADAT-enabled audio interface, you can use the AudioFuse 8Pre as an 8-channel expander to add more input channels to your setup. The high quality of the built-in preamps provides the transparency and zero noise gain you need. Furthermore, you can use your ADAT input to send signal mixes to the headphones or to the monitoring outputs from your interface.
