Other notable features include two balanced inserts on channels one and two, double ADAT for eight digital in/out with up to 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution, and wordclock BNC inputs and outputs. The premium black metal case can be rack mounted or used in a tabletop configuration. The rack ears can be switched up and deployed as feet. The AudioFuse 8Pre works with Windows or Mac systems and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. The included Arturia AudioFuse 8Pre ships with the AudioFuse Creative Suite, an expanding collection of software effects and instruments with favorites from the Analog Lab Lite collection and legendary emulations of vintage effects processors.
Included AudioFuse Creative Suite
Adding serious value to the AudioFuse 8Pre interface is Arturia’s included AudioFuse Creative Suite. The 3 Preamps bundle is the culmination of Arturia’s 20 years of software emulation experience. It’s 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. Take it from Arturia users at Sweetwater: the Creative Suite’s plug-ins will find their way onto just about any project you take on.
