Next-generation analog-to-digital converters deliver over-the-top audio quality with amazing transparency that reveals every nuance in your music.
Getting the Timing Right
While preamps are critical, the resulting analog signal has to be converted to the digital world for your computer, tablet or phone. The factor that distinguishes between budget and high-end digitizing is timing accuracy. that is why Arturia built their reference clock on an exceedingly accurate, fully temperature-compensated oscillator with outstanding 20ppm stability. Arturia 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.
Obsessive attention to detail
It's a well-known fact that the quality of an audio chain is never stronger than its weakest link. That is why Arturia built AudioFuse with the obessive attention to detail at every stage, including a fully symmetrical and nearly capacitor-free input stages. Unlike most interfaces on the market, Arturia didn't compromise audio quality by combining preamp and line in with an attenuator-they are separate signal paths. There is 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. Arturia even designed custom built potentiometers to their exacting specs.
With AudioFuse you can plug in two microphones plus two analog instruments, and add up to eight digital instruments using ADAT.
You can connect MIDI or USB keyboards, you can record vinyl LPs... the connectivity is unsurpassed.
Creativity is about intuition and spontaneity. And that's also what defines a good workflow.
