You can not say much about a product where you only get the press release. At the NAMM 2019 I was able to get a first look of the new Arturia AudioFuse Studio. It’s nothing completely new but it should be seen as big brother of the first AudioFuse audio interface. The motto is clear here: more inputs/outputs: 4 additional line inputs, 2 of them are nice for DJ turntables, 4 inserts and more!
Where the classic AudioFuse was still a hybrid interface that can be used in the studio as well as mobile (iOS…), the focus of the new is full for the studio. A great addition here is also the bluetooth audio compatibility with which you can easy connect any device to it for playback audio. The time will tell us how good the AudioFuse Studio is or not.
