This all-metal built, smart looking audio interface sounds, connects and controls better than anything else we’ve ever tried before in the same size category.
Re-Amping. As if it didn’t do enough, it has a re-amping feature too, which for the recording guitarist is a real bonus.
Latency. We run some pretty intensive mixing sessions on Cubase and we recorded heavy N.I. Kontakt sound libraries on the AudioFuse, and it performed impeccably. We didn’t specifically test the declared “less than 3ms” playback latency, but one thing is for sure: our recording session did not reveal any audible latency.
Verdict: We’re baffled as to how Arturia has managed to make this interface with all the connectivity options and the amount of controls, with such a small footprint. Don’t forget, the AudioFuse is portable, no bigger than the size of an adult hand. And yet its best quality is the sound it delivers. This is a serious bit of kit, and it really sounds fantastic.
